The Ministry of Buddha Sasana states, in view of Poson Full Moon Poya Day, a number of special programmes will be underway commencing from tomorrow, until Sunday.
Amongst these, significantly, the Chanting of Seth Pirith will take place in a special compartment of a train commuting between Beliatta and Kankasanthurai. The initiative will begin at the Upper Katugampola Kaudumunna Sri Indrasaraaraama Viharaya, tomorrow. This novel initiative has been titled: “Uthura Dakuna Budun Dakina Poson Udaanaya” – “The Dawning of Poson where the North and the South beholds the Buddha”.
Subsequent to a Pirith chanting to be held to invoke blessings, a special Perehera will head towards Beliatta, and thereafter, the train with the compartment in which Seth Pirith will be chanted will commence its journey to the north.
Meanwhile, on the 22nd of this month at 6.00 pm, an Adhishtana Poojawa will be held with the participation of 500 prelates, opposite the Ruwanweli Maha Seya. Subsequently, nutrition packs and school stationary items will be distributed amongst low income families in the Northern Province.
