“Let us make the Wesak Festival a blessing to mend the broken hearts”. This observation was made by President Rajapaksa when he visited the Wesak Zones in Colombo.

He was optimistic the people would receive the necessary strength to wipe out hatred from their hearts and create a peaceful environment in the country.

The President inaugurated the “Buddha-Rashmi” Wesak Zone on its second day. President’s Additional Secretary Gamini Senarath presented him with a volume of the Buddha Rashmi publication. The Ven. Galaboda Gnanissara thera was present.

The President also visited the National Wesak Zone organized at the Colombo Town Hall.
