The fifth edition of the series of Sadaham Yathra Dhamma Sermons held on every poya day with the participation of President Maithripala Sirisena will take place today at the historic Dehiwela Pinwatta Purana Viharaya premises.
Two Pasalosvaka Poya days fall on July 1 and July 31 this year. On Adhi Esala Pasalosvaka Poya day on July 1 a conjunction of Venus and Jupiter will occur in the planetary system. Astrologically this is referred to as a 'planetary war.' Its maximum stage is scheduled to occur during the morning period, astronomer Anura C. Perera said.
