    Today is Nikini Poya Day Featured

    August 10, 2014

    Nikini Poya is the second Poya in the Vas season (when monks traditionally retreat during the rains). Many important events took place on this Poya day. One of which was the attainment of Arahatship of Buddha’s chief attendant Ananda Maha Thera. 

    This poya also marks when the Lord Buddha, after preaching his first sermon to the five disciples (Kondanna, Bhaddiya, Vappa, Mahanama, Assaji), advised them to spread the Buddhist doctrine and the message of Noble Dhamma to everyone.


    The 126th program of 'Amadam Sisilasa' Dharma Deshana was held at the President's House in Kandy today, the day of Nikini Poya.
    The sermon was delivered by Deputy registrar of the Karaka Sabha of the Asgiry Vihara Chapter of the Shyamapoli Nikaya Venerable Narampanave Ananda Thero. 
    Presiddent Mahinda Rajapaksa, First Lady Shiranthi Wickramasinghe Rajapaksa, Ministers and large number of devotees participated in the sermon.  (KH)
