In preparation for Poson Poya, monks from Subuddhaloka Vihara, Fort received alms. Pindapata is a Pali term that means “the food-morsel’s fall (into the alms-bowl).” According to Sri Lanka Tourism, “Poson Poya is second in importance to Vesak since it commemorates the introduction of Buddhism to Sri Lanka in 247BC .” Two million worshipers are expected to celebrate Poson in Anuradhapura.
