Sixty children to enter monkhood at Dambulla

Sixty children will be ordained on July 4 at the Dambulla Raja Maha Viharaya under the instructions of Dambulla Raja Maha Vihara Viharadhipathi Ven. Abagaswewa Rahula Thera.

Ven. Rahula Thera said a very few get ordained now. “As a result, many Buddhist temples cannot serve laymen properly. The Buddhist community, therefore, must donate one child from each family to the Buddha Sasana.

We went all over the country to find children to ordain during past few months but found only 60,” the Viharadhipathi said.
