On the occasion of the Vesak festival in celebration of Sambudu Themagula, the children, parents and teachers of the Ranmuthu Preschool of Mahawilachchiya Education Center decorated the pre-school by creating Vesak Lanterns.

On Vesak Poya Day, Buddhist Sri Lankans celebrate three major events in the life of the Lord Buddha, “Sambudhu Temagula” or his birth, enlightenment and attainment of nirvana. It is the most important Buddhist festival of Lord Gautama Buddha in Theravada.
