New Year Message from the London Buddhist Vihara

To All Devotees and Friends,

It is a great pleasure for us to extend our sincere greetings to all of you at the dawn of this New Year 2017. We wish that the New Year will be a very special one for all of you, filling each day with good health, happiness, prosperity, and serenity.

The year 2016 was a remarkable year for the London Buddhist Vihara. Apart from the annual programme of festivals, we were able to celebrate 90th anniversary of the London Buddhist Vihara on a grand scale at the Vihara with the unparalleled Pictorial exhibition. This was a great success, Also this year with the help of the Dayakas we have contributed to some charity works here and in Sri Lanka. We donated a Multi-Parameter Patient Monitor and a Fetal/Maternal Monitor to Kebithigollewa Base hospital. We have sponsored flood relief works and a water distribution project at Lewala, Kegalla. Our annual blood donation project was very successful. Also, during the Vesak and Christmas festivals, we supplied food and other essential items to the homeless centre at Acton.

None of our achievements would be possible without the active participation and support of our co-ordinators, our dayakas, the Vihara Management Committee and the Anagarika Dharmapala Trust in Colombo. I wish to express our sincere thanks and punyanumodana to all these bodies for their invaluable support. We are very grateful to you for your generous support, which made all these events a success.

We therefore would like to wish you a Happy New Year from the bottom of our hearts. We all hope that you and your family will have a wonderful New Year.

May the blessings of the Noble Triple Gem give you courage to achieve your expectations for your future well-being.

Bhavathu Sabba Mangalam.

Yours with Metta,

Most Ven. Seelawimala Nayaka Thero
