The United Nations has already declared the Wesak Day an international holiday. The 2600 Sambuddha Jayanthi operations committee chaired by the Prime Minister has decided to make the world aware of the practical implementation of the holiday. It was proposed to unveil a programme to apprise Sri Lankans domiciled abroad about the Sambuddha Jayanthi celebrations and also to make the local population aware of it through the regional and district secretaries. Several persons including the members of the Mahasangha attended a meeting of this committee.
