New Year Blessing Services & Seth Pirith Chanting

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

We have come to an end of another successful year - 2018 of Spiritual and Community activities of Buddhist Vihara Society In BC. Board of directors of BVS as well as all sub-committee members would like to take this opportunity to thank each & every one of you for your excellent support and voluntary services rendered towards the success of our temple activities during 2018. On behalf of all members & well-wishers, we also extend our gratitude and appreciation to Ven. Kumbalgoda Siriniwasa, Ven. Medawala Saranapala, Ven. Dr. Mirisse Dhammika, Ven. Matthumagala Chandananda as well as all other visiting monks for their committed and dedicated services provided to our devotees in 2018.

As New Year 2019 is fast approaching, BVS has organized a series of New Year Blessing Services & Seth Pirith Chanting on January 01, 2019 at the temple at different times as follows.

  • 1st Puja is at 07:00 AM - Sinhala Medium
  • 2nd Puja is at 10:30 AM - Sinhala Medium
  • 3rd Puja is at 3:00 PM - English Medium
  • 4th Puja is at 7:00 PM - Sinhala Medium

All devotees and well-wishers are invited to attend one of these services at your convenience. We have decided to conduct 3rd Puja at 3:00 p.m. only in English Medium as done in last few years to facilitate participation of English speaking community members. We appreciate very much if you all could stick to the above puja times only since it will be problematic for our resident monks to conduct services on an individual basis on this busy day.

It is customary that we serve Kiribath, Katta-Sambol & Sweets on the New Year day. Therefore, we kindly request you all to contact Athula Thilakaratne @ 604-448-2174 or Sadana Perera @ 778-990-5951 if you are planning to bring Kiribath, Katta-Sambol & Sweets.

We wish you all a very happy & prosperous New Year 2019.
