It was decided at the meeting to conduct religious programmes (Ashirwada Pooja and Atawisi Buddha Pooja) at the Anuradhapura Vihara Maha Devi Buddhist nuns hermitage today (10). Parallel to the commemoration programme, a number of religious programmes including a meditation Bodhi Pooja would be held with the participation of around 500 Bhikkunis at the Anuradhapura Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi premises.

The Sangamiththa Therani Maha Perahera will begin to go around the city at 2.00 pm tomorrow (11) and end at the Jaya Sri Maha bodhi.

The three-day pinkama will end with an alms giving for nearly 500 Buddhist nuns on Thursday (12) morning.
