Bak Poya celebrates the second visit of the Buddha
to Sri Lanka, which took place in the fifth year
supreme enlightenment in order to reconcile
two local chiefs, Mahodara and Chulodara.
Next Sil Observance Day at Mahavihara is Sunday, the 21st of April, 2019,
to mark Bak Poya Full-Moon day which falls on Friday, 19th of April.
Sil Program starts at 8.30am and concludes at 5.00pm. Participants are kindly requested
to be in the Dhamam Hall by 8.15am. The program gives an opportunity to practice morality and spend the day in
physical and mental awareness away from usual household responsibilities.
Devottees will listen, observe and discuss Buddha's teachings throughout the day. Please make use of this
opportunity to develop spirituality.
