SANGHAMITTA DAY

On

Sunday, December 23, 2018 (BE2562)

Sanghamitta Day Celebrations will be held at the London Buddhist Vihara on Sunday, 23rd December 2018, commencing at 9.00 a.m. This festival is unique to Sri Lanka as it commemorates the arrival of Sanghamitta, daughter of Emperor Asoka of India, for the purpose of establishing the Bhikkhuni Order in the island. This day is also of universal significance to Buddhists as Sanghamitta brought with her a sapling of the Bodhi Tree from Buddha Gaya. The sapling, planted at Anuradhapura in 245 B.C., is today regarded as the oldest historically authenticated tree in the world.
