The All Nepal Bhikkhu Association is going to organise the Third International Tripitaka Chanting Ceremony in Lumbini from March 2 to 5.

The Tripitaka, Buddhism's major religious text, is to be recited in the Mayadevi Temple and around, wishing for the world peace and human welfare.

Bhikkhu Pancha Murti Mahasthavir, the treasurer of the Organizing Committee, said the event, besides informing the international community about the Buddhist pilgrimage site, the Buddhist education, literature and philosophy and the significance of the Tripitaka, will also provide an opportunity for publicising spiritual tourism in Lumbini.

According to him, the three sub-texts of the Tripitaka – the Vinaya Pitaka, the Sutra Pitaka and the Abhidharma Pitaka – will be chanted on the occasion amidst the participation of the Bhikkhus, Buddhist priests and followers from Asian nations including Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Korea and Japan, among others.

A peace march will also be organized as part of the Tripitaka chanting ceremony where the general public can also partake.

The Tripitaka is the main religious scripture of Buddhism. The followers of Buddhism of all the sects, including Hinayana, Mahayana and others have adopted this text which includes the Buddha's teachings.
