Olcott and Buddhism
Jun 01, 2010 10:28 PM
"Today, there is no town in Sri Lanka where there is no memorial for Col.
Olcott. Half-a-million people arrive at the railway station in Columbo for
work in the morning, and they all pass by a statue of Col. Olcott. Many
schools are named after him. If you meet a Sri Lankan child named Olcott,
you know he comes from a very pious Buddhist family. That is what Olcott is
to Sri Lanka"
Is this not a remarkable recognition of the work done by Col Olcott for Sri
Lanka and Buddhism.
