Buddhist scholar says Christianity has brightened his life

18 Sept.2013: : A Buddhist scholar in Sri Lanka said that Christianity has brightened his life. University Prof. Praneeth Abeysundara said “Although I am a Buddhist, my meeting with Catholic priests has made ​​my life more beautiful because they helped me with their spiritual teachings. The professor told children from a Primary School during a meeting held at the Centre for Society and Religion in Colombo that he has read 'The Sermon on the Mount' and the Book of Proverbs many times, and both have brightened his life. The event was held early September as part of the Month of the Sinhalese literature. One can learn a lot from the Church’s teachings, he said and added that many teachings especially help teenagers, who can learn to improve their lives .
Noting that that the world today is full of dangerous and evil things," Prof Abeysundara said modern media often seek to exploit and destroy the lives of young people. Internet, Facebook, text messages, e-mails have positive and negative aspects. They can improve communications, but they can also give easy access to dangerous pictures, words and videos. This is why our children must learn to evaluate what they have in front of them. Some Christian texts can illuminate their life," added the Buddhist scholar.
