If you look here, you will find that the Salesian Order has donated a hostel for novices at a Buddhist Monastery in Sri Lanka.
"A brilliant example of Christian Charity came live with the donation of a 'Sangawasaya' - hostel by the Salesian Fathers of Don Bosco for the use of Novice Monks of the 'Buddha Sasana' studying at 'Sri Gnanissara Pirivena' at the 'Sri Priyadharshanaramaya' Temple, at 'Palugollagama, Megodawewa', a remote village in the Anuradhapura district in the North Central Province at a cost of Rs. 1.4 million.
Very Rev. Fr. Anthony H. Pinto, Provincial of the Salesian community in Sri Lanka said that it was a donation from his Congregation. This offering t the pinkama is not something purely personal but a donation from my Congregation. We are celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the presence of Our Congregation in Sri Lanka. This is one way of extending our fraternal love towards the other religions. Converting the Buddhists does not motivate us but we are keen to see that they live a better life as Buddhists, he said."
Now, is it just cynicsm that makes me wonder where the 1.4 million rupees came from, and what the donors thought it was destined for?
