Nation geared to commemorate Sambuddathva Jayanthi

Jan 1, 2011 11:29:20 AM - itnnews.lk

The entire nation is geared to commemorate the 2600th Sri Sambuddathva Jayanthi this year.

This year’s Wesak Full Moon Poya Day marks the 2600th year of the Lord Buddha attaining Enlightenment. Sri Lanka is already making arrangements to commemorate the event as a country which had safeguarded the Buddha Dhamma and a nation which had built on the Buddha Dhamma principles. The Government and the Buddha Sasana Ministry have taken the initiative of building a virtuous society, bringing together the Buddhist as well as followers of other religions. Independent Television Network is geared to play a vital and responsible role in this respect.
