Jonas Soto interviews Fr. Indunil Janakaratne Kodithuwakku Kankanamalage, the Undersecretary of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue in Rome, about the influence of Buddhist culture in his home country Sri Lanka and how interreligious dialogue is lived there.
The beautiful island of Sri Lanka is a diverse country, home to many religions, ethnicities and languages. It is the land of the Sinhalese, Sri Lankan Tamils, Moors, Indians, Tamils, and other ethnic groups. The country has a rich Buddhist heritage, although different religions coexist in Sri Lanka. The country’s recent history has been marred by a thirty-year civil war that finally ended in 2009.
