Ambassadorial Visit

H.E. the High Commissioner of Sri Lanka Mr. D. Wijesinghe and his wife made a visit to the new location of the Dhammakaya Temple of Johannesburg (the Johannesburg Meditation Centre) in Midrand on Thursday 17th March 2011.

The High Commissioner and his wife had an opportunity to make a puja to the statue of Lord Buddha in the new meditation room, then discussed with the Buddhist monks and before they left, they did food and grocery offerings and donation to help maintenance of the meditation centre.

In the coming Vesak Day – which falls on the 6th lunar full moon day – on Tuesday 17th May 2011, the Sri Lankan community in Gauteng will celebrate Vesak together with the Johannesburg Meditation Centre (JMC).

The High Commissioner and his wife received the book, “World Peace Lies from Within.” (One Man’s Vision) from the monks before they left.
