Today is Vesak full moon poya day which commemorates the completion of 2600th Sambuddhathwa Jayanthi.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa in his Vesak message stated that It is a great privilege to once again commemorate the triple festival of events in the life of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, with great reverence and honour, and with full state patronage,

With the immense pleasure of contemplating on the Buddha, we recall the great religious awakening of devotion and wisdom that spread throughout Sri Lanka during this year, as we now see the end of the Sambuddha Jayanthi commemorations on this Vesak Day.

It is our wish that this joy in the Buddha and his teachings would abide in the minds of all Sri Lankans.

The teachings of the Buddha are the best way to lead a life that is free of confusion. These teachings show us the path to lead a life free of the four-fold evils and achieve success in this world and the next.

President also stated that everyone must be aware that all who are of wrongful mind and thinking cause many divisions and clashes that close the doors to our progress.
