ලන්ඩන් මහමෙව්නාවෙන් සර්ව රාත්‍රී පින්කමක්


උදාවූ නව වසරට ලෝවැසි සියලුම දෙනා වෙත සෙත් පැතූ සර්ව රාත්‍රී පින්කමක් ලන්ඩන් නුවර මහමෙව්නාව භාවනා මධ්‍යස්ථානයේ මෙහෙයවීමෙන් පවත්වනු ලැබිය.

ඒ සඳහා ති විශාල සැදැහැවතුන් පිරිසක් සහභාගිවීම නිසාම එම පිංකම පවත්වනු ලැබුවේ විහාරස්ථානයට සමීපව පිහිටි ශාලාවක්තුලය.

පින්කමේ ප්‍රධාන අංගය වුයේ මහා කස්සප මහා රහතන් වහන්සේ වෙනුවෙන් සිදුකෙරුණ ප්‍රණාම පුජාව සහ මහා සති පට්ඨාන සුත්‍ර දේශනාව සජ්ජායනා කිරීමය.

පිංකම ආරම්භයේ සියලුම සැදැහැවතුන් ආජීව අටමක සීලයෙහි පිහටවූ අතර රාත්‍රිය පුරාවටම බුද්ධ වන්දනා, මහා කස්සප අරහත් වන්දනා, ධර්ම දෙසනා, ධර්ම සාකච්චා සහ මහා සති පට්ඨාන සුත්‍ර සජ්ජායනා කිරීම සිදුකරනු ලැබිය.

පිංකම මෙහයවන ලද්දේ මහමෙව්නා විහාරවාසී මහා සංඝ රත්නය විසිනි.

Veneration of Arahat Maha Kassapa and Chanting of the Maha Sathi Pattana Sutta


On the 31st of December 2014, hundreds of devotees attended the Dhamma programme held in Pitsea in Essex, under the guidance of the resident Bhikkhus of the Mahamevnawa International Meditation Centre.

The programme commenced at 6:00 pm and continued right throughout the night into the early hours of the following day. The attendees observed the Aajeeva Attamaka Precepts at the outset of the programme and offered various pooja items to Lord Buddha as well as the Noble Arahat, Maha Kasŝapa.

Afterwards, a beautiful veneration of the Blessed One as well as Arahat Maha Kassapa was done under the direction of the Venerable Bhikkhus. Following that, the devotees had the chance to listen to a Dhamma discourse based on the Maha Sathi PaÅ¥tâna Sutta. Thereafter, they had the magnificent opportunity to chant the Maha Sathi Pattana Sutta in full. Chanting of various other Sutta in Sinhalese and Pali was done during the course of the programme as well. 

Furthermore, the devotees had the opportunity to view videos and venerate the important Buddhist pilgrim sites in India. The Dhamma programme concluded with the offering of kiri pindu Buddha pooja in the morning.

May everyone share the merits gained by these great deeds with joyous minds! May everyone be happy! May everyone attain the bliss of Nibbana!
