 The students of the Yasodhara Dhamma and Sinhala School of the Sri Lankarama Mahaviharaya of Brisbane celebrated the Sangamitta day yesterday. This was organised to pay our gratitude and respect to the Arahat Theri Sangamitta, remembering her noble services paid to the Sri Lankan woman fold and bringing the sapling of the sacred bodhi tree to Sri Lanka. 



The chief incumbent of the Srilankarama Monastery and the Chief Sanganayaka of Australia, Most Venerable Wattegama Dhammawasa Nayaka Maha Thero delivered a sermon explaining the unflagging services Sangamitta Theri rendered to the Sri Lankan people. Ven. Sir further explained about the important role played by the Buddha's Chief disciples and the prominent female figures of the past who lived in Sri Lanka. The resident monks, Ven.Pilimatalawe Samahita Thero and Ven. Ihalagonagama Nanda Thero were also present in the ceremony.

The photographs illustrate how the Venarable Maha Sanga, parents and students took part in the commemoration program.
