The sixth Assembly of the World Council of Churches was held from 26th July till 10th August, 1933 at the British Columbia University in Vancouver, Canada. Representatives from more than 300 Christian Churches from over 100 countries participated at this meeting. Among this assembly of about 3,500 representatives were children, young people and the aged as well as persons from various stations in life. In addition to the delegates a special feature of the Assembly was the participation of representatives from other world religions, Buddhism, Hinduism, the foman Catholic Church, Islam and Judaism. Although the number of invited guests who participated was a small company in terms of numbers it may be said that they enjoyed an important place in the life of the Assembly. Among the representatives of other religions who participated in this Assembly there were about four of us who were Buddhists. I feel that I should place on record my feelings and valuable experience both as a Sri Lankan Theravada Buddhist who participated in the Assembly as well as a stranger who witnessed this event. I believe that this will be of use both to Sri Lanka Buddhists as well as Catholic and Christian friends who live with us.
