The children's Wesak programme at the London Buddhist Vihara was held on the Saturday 2nd May, day before the Wesak Full Moon day.

Many children from the Rahula Dhamma school observed the 8 precepts and participated the Buddha Puja, Buddha Vandana, Dhana, Meditation, Dhamma Sermon and Pirith Chanting programmes.

The Eight Precepts are based on the Five Precepts, with the third precept extended to prohibiting all pleasurable activities such as singing, dancing, using make up etc; and an additional three precepts that are especially supportive to meditation practice.

Head of the Vihara Ven. Bogoda Seelawimala Nayaka Thera, Ven. Thawalama Bandula Thera, the principal of the Rahula Dhamma school and all the resident monks took part in presenting the religious activities.Teachers of the Dhamma School and parents of the children helped with the other arrangements of the 1/2 day programme.
