POSON CELEBRATIONS IN ERAVUR

On the 2nd of June our students at Eravur, along with their parents and our centre staff celebrated a special Poson ceremony at the Mariyamman Kovil. The full-moon Poson Poya Day is noteworthy to the Sri Lankan Buddhists as the day on which Emperor Asoka's son, the Arahat Mahinda, officially introduced Buddhism to the island in the 3rd century B.C.
