(TibetanReview.net, Nov21, 2017) – The Dalai Lama may be a persona non grata in Buddhist-dominated Sri Lanka due to the country’s fear of offending China, its major partners in commercial and other interests. However, the autobiography of the exiled spiritual leader of Tibet has now made it to what has been described as the country’s bestselling weekly Irida Lankadeepa.

The Sinhala translation of My Land and My People was featured in the weekly’s Nov 19 edition and will be serialized in the magazine for a whole year, said the Central Tibetan Administration, Dharamshala, on its Tibet.net website Nov 20.

The report quoted Damenda Porage, Chairperson of the Sri Lanka Tibetan Buddhist Association, as saying, “We have achieved another milestone in our mission to support the Tibetan cause. We managed to publish the Sinhala translation of My Land and My People by His Holiness in Irida Lankadeepa. The autobiography will be featured for a whole year in episodes.”

The book has been translated by Jinadasa Hewage and published by the Sri Lanka Tibetan Buddhist Association.
