Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa has expressed hope that Poson would usher in abundance of light, peace, blessings to Sri Lankans.

He expressed this hope in his Poson Message. His message states:

“The day of Poson holds a special significance for Sri Lankans as it marks an event that has shaped the course of our nation. The visit of Mihindu Maha Rahath Thera and his encounter with King Devanampiyathissa marks the advent of Buddhism in Sri Lanka.

The arrival of Arahat Mahinda Thero and the introduction of Buddhism into Sri Lankan society has shaped the nation’s path. It is the foundation by which the way of life of our people was built on. Throughout our history Buddhism has impacted Sri Lanka’s cultural, spiritual and political landscape.

This Poson, it is timely for us all to once again adhere to the great principles of compassion, tolerance and non-violence that Buddhism has endowed us with. C. I urge all Sri Lankans to dig deep into this nation’s foundation and rigorously pursue these principles and values that encourage all Sri Lankans to peacefully and harmoniously co-exist.

May this Poson Full Moon Poya bring an abundance of light, peace and blessings to all Sri Lankans. May the blessings of the Triple Gem be with you.”
