Buddhist Culture Centre Claimed

Average Reviews


Buddhist Cultural Center (BCC) in Sri Lanka was founded by Sri Lankan Kirama Wimalajothi Thero, after dedicated religious service in Malaysia, Singapore and the US for nearly 20 years. It was opened on January 2, 1992 under the patronage of Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda, chief Sanghanayake of Malaysia and Singapore. BCC was established to fill the gap in reading materials for the use of the people of the area as well as in other countries.


Thero started a small place at Nadimala, Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia, with a few lay devotees. He went in search of some books on Buddhism and Buddhist culture and found that the books he was looking for were not available at any of the leading bookshops in Sri Lanka. He thus started collecting books on Buddhism and related subjects.

As Sinhalese Dhamma books were out of print at that time, Wimalajothi Thero also opened a printing press for that purpose in 1995. A mobile Buddhist bookshop was also launched that year, necessitated by the unavailability of Buddhist books in all areas including Colombo and to increase knowledge in Buddhism by promoting reading habits through Buddhist Culture Centre.
