Hiru FM listeners from around the country have joined this program organized by Hiru FM.
Hiru FM has provided all facilities for the pilgrims including transporting them to Nallatanniya for the Siripa Karuna program.
As a noble concept envisioned by the Chairman of Asia Broadcasting Corporation, Mr. Rayynor Silva, Hiru Siripa Karuna gives pilgrims across the country the opportunity to engage in a meritorious deed of a life time.
The program has been organized with its centers at Hunupitiya Gangaramaya in Colombo, Sri Bodhi Rajaramaya in Elpitiya, Sri Jayamaha Ancient temple in Polonnaruwa, Buddhist Center in Wellawaya, Sri Anandaramaya in Anamaduwa and Sangharakkhitha Pirivena in Giri Ulla.
The pilgrims received the blessings before they set off for the journey at their respective centers.
Viharaadikari of Hunupitiya Gangarama Dr. Kirinde Assajee Thera delivered an anusasana to the pilgrims before they left on the pilgrim this morning.
Meanwhile, 6 holy caskets were also escorted with the Hiru Siripa Karuna procession to the Sacred Sri Pada premises.
Large crowds admired and paid their homage.
