Categories: Temple News

Dear Friends,

We remember the twenty-eight Buddhas who preceded Gautama Buddha and recite stanzas recalling their virtues. Two offerings are made to each Buddha. One is a Atapirikara and the other a tray of offerings (Gilanpasa) consisting of flowers, a candle, gilanpasa and chatumadura.

Dayakathwaya for each of the two offerings as follows.
●  Donation of $100.00 for ATAPIRIKARA
●  Donation of $50.00 for Gilanpasa offerings tray

Offering an ATAPIRIKARA is considered as one of the Ata Maha Kusal (Eight most efficacious merits). Besides, Offering ATAPIRIKARA comes second in this list of Eight Most Efficacious or Noble Merits.

Much merit is gained when we make these offerings at a Atavisi Buddha Pooja.

The ATAPIRIKARA and GILANPASA offerings will be provided by us to you to offer on that day (You also can assign someone else to offer on behalf of you),

Please contact Champa Kulasekara (0405 718 248) or Jayanthi Gamage (0424 453 674) or email or enter your name in the list on the notice board.

On 9th January 2022, Atavisi Buddha Pooja will start at 5.30pm (5.30pm to 6.15pm).  So, please be at the temple by 5:15pm.

Pirith chanting will start at 6.45pm and will continue.

All the proceedings will go to the upkeep of the Temple.

You are all kindly invited to participate at this annual event welcoming prosperous and successful New Year 2022.  

Theruwan Saranayi!
