Celebrate Vesak from home

The government has announced that the state Vesak festival, which was to be help in Nagadeepa, Jaffna, has been cancelled.

Instead, a shorter programme will be held at the Colombo Hunupitiya Gangaramaya Temple.

However, all development, charity and environmental programmes organised targeting the State Vesak Festival will be continued, the ministry of Buddhasasana, Religious and Cultural Affairs says.

The ministry urges public to celebrate Vesak from home, giving priority to 'Prathipaththi Pooja' and to deck their their homes with Vesak decorations.
