Written by: Staff

Gulbarga, Sep 11 (UNI) A massive congregation of Buddhists will be held here on October 14, in which about three lakh people belonging to various communities across the nation will embrace Buddhism.

Disclosing this to newspersons here today, International Buddhist Youth Organisation National President Bhante Bodhi Dhamma said they would hold the congregation to inculcate the message of peace and build an enlightened 'Bharat Nirman'.

He said there were about two crore Buddhists in the country and about five lakh in Karnataka.

''We are not concentrating on people of a particular religion to convert to Buddhism, but some people who suffered social discrimination are coming forward to embrace Buddhism,'' he said.
