Malwathu Chapter opposes of having 'Vesak' in April

The Anunayake of the Malwathu Chapter, most venerable Niyangoda  Vijithasiri  Thera says that  Vesak Full Moon poya day should not have been scheduled during the month of April, disregarding Sri Lankan traditions.
 
The Anunayake Thera added that Vesak Full Moon poya day and the international Vesak Day Celebrations have been scheduled on the 29th of May in most Buddhist countries and that the same should have been done in Sri Lanka.
 
The Thera further noted that the full moon poya day in May is considered as the Vesak Full Moon poya day while the month of May is considered as the Vesak month.
 
The Thera added that decisions such as this taken in accordance with the wishes of individuals, ignoring the traditional Buddhist calendar is not acceptable.

The Thera warns it would spell disaster in the country.
