An inspiration to take a Buddhist Mission to Germany from Sri Lanka and establish the Buddha Sasana in Germany

This blurb was distributed by the Lanka Dhammaduta Society (later known as the German Dharmaduta Society) at public meetings held

all over the country in 1956 and 1957 to publicise the oncoming First Buddhist Mission to Germany (1957) from Sri Lanka and raise funds to support the Mission.

The poignant message in the blurb is that just as much as Arahant Mahinda introduced Buddhism to Sri Lanka beginning at Mihintale via his encounter with King Devanampiyatissa 2300 years ago likewise the German Dharmaduta Society will take a Buddhist Mission and establish the Buddha Sasana in Germany.
