The Light of Asia Foundation is committed to make available to the global community, the pristine leadings of The Enlightened Buddha through audio-visual presentations.
The task is daunting. The researched scripts need to be authentic and accurate to transmit the doctrine to interested followers.
Such material has to be accumulated painstakingly from the reservoir of knowledge that is spread across the globe.
Light of Asia Foundation will endeavour to harness such expertise under one roof, by creating a GLOBAL VILLAGE, as the CENTRE OF RADIANCE at the ‘Sãkya Kingdom’ to be established in Sri Lanka. Light of Asia Foundation invites you to participate in this limitless task in whatever capacity to contribute to the success of this mission to provide the GIFT OF THE DHAMMA TO HUMANITY.
