Prime expectation and the noble vision of all religions is to promote spiritual and moral well-being of humankind, President Maithripala Sirisena said in his Maha Shiva Rathri day message.

He added that religions provide great relief to the people in today's competitive world and this way of life, which is more towards the spiritual awakening, can be considered as an essential ingredient for building a better society.

“Hindu devotees world over including Sri Lankan Hindus celebrate the ‘Maha Shiva Rathri’ with the objective of enhancing their spiritual discipline,” he said.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said the celebrations associated with this special day are centered on art forms and cultural pursuits since Maha Siva Rathri is also linked to the dance of Lord Shiva.

“Throughout this sacred night, the Hindus spend time engaged in meditation and charity in pursuit of spiritual liberty,” he said, “As a much revered occasion that highlights the values of spiritual enlightenment and culture, the Maha Siva Rathri Day is deeply symbolic of co-existance and harmony among all and is also an ideal time for reflection.”
