MP R Duminda Silva hands over monetary donations to many temples in view of IL full moon poya day.-Video
Financial donations were granted to several Buddhist Temples in view of the IL Full Moon Poya Day yesterday under the Daham Saviya programme implemented according to a concept of Colombo district MP R. Duminda Silva.
Financial donations are given for the improvement of places of worship of all religions under the ‘Daham Saviya’ programme.
Colombo District MP R. Duminda Silva visited the Mampe Sri Wijayawardhana Buddhist Temple in Mampe in Piliyandala and gave a financial donation for the Daham School building scheduled to be newly built there.
While there is only a preaching hall at this Buddhist Temple, the non availability of a permanent building for holding the Daham School has been a problem.
On this occasion Venerable Gonaduuwey Sugathawansa Thero expressing his views about the MP’s philanthropy stated that within a short period of time the MP made the donations.
Subsequently Colombo District MP R. Duminda Silva visited the Dharmavatee Dasasil Maathaa Budhdist nunnery at Katawalamulla in Dematagoda and granted a financial donation for constructing the abode for the residence of the Buddhist nuns there.
The Wallampitiya Megoda Kolonnawa Siri Seneviratna Buddhist Temple is also a Temple that is gradually improving.
In view of this MP R. Duminda Silva took steps yesterday to grant financial donations for constructing a sacred Bo Tree Shrine room and the shrine dome.
On this occasion several woman devotees who observed ‘sil’ expressed their gratitude to MP R Duminda Silva.
