This year’s event, held to bestow blessings on all Sri Lankans, was carried forth by Sanasa societies, led by the Bodhi Rajapura Sanasa Society in Puttalam. This year’s event, which commenced with the offering of lotus flowers to Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi on 6 January and concluded with the offering of milk-based food (Kiri Ahara Pooja) for Ruwanweli Maha Seya and the almsgiving at Abhayagiriya in the afternoon on 7 January, was held under the patronage of the Leader of the Sanasa Movement, Vishwa Prasadini, Dr. P.A.

A procession with various dance elements had also been organised for the lotus flower offering under the initiative of Sanasa societies island-wide. The Sanasa Movement, which is constantly committed to ensuring the well-being of the people and the country, implements various community care programmes annually, with the support of all other institutions under the Sanasa Movement.
