DALADA PUJAWA

It was a great opportunity that the Malalasekera Foundation were able to hold a Buddha pooja and a sanghikapooja to the pinnacle of all Buddhists in Sri Lanka and the world, to the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha. This pooja, considered one of the most sacred by the Buddhists all over is done continuously from ancient times. This opportunity was given to us on 12th November 2018 and we carried it out with utmost sraddha following all the traditional rites and rituals. In parallel to this, a sanghikadana was given to 50 monks from Malwathuvihara and Asgirivihara with the blessings of the mahanayakas and anunayakas of those sects. This high level patronage is highly appreciated by us. The Malalasekera Foundation led by Mr. Ashan Malalasekera and the director board, representatives and many other devotees participated in this meritorious deed. It is heartening to mention here that a delegation from Thailand representing the World Fellowship of Buddhists also participated in this activity.
