    August 16, 2014

    Security Forces Headquarters East in collaboration with the Buddhist Channel and Sambodhi Viharaya in Colombo organized a Pirith chanting ceremony at the Gal Vihara temple, Polonnaruwa recently  with a view to invoke blessings of god for bountiful rain for this season.


    The Pirith ceremony was presided over by the Chief Incumbent of Asgiri chapter with over 50 Buddhist Theros. The religious ceremony was organized under the patronage of the Commander Security Force (East) Maj Gen SAAL Perera. The utmost expectation of the event is to get the much awaited rain falls to benefit the peasant community in the region.
