We wish to thank everybody who helped us and gave their support in many ways to succeed our month of April program. Routinely we bless our members and our regular participants known to us along with Dr. Samadhi’s family, family friends and other known associates in a circle attending all our religious and charity work.
Our foremost and deep gratitude goes to the Venerable Maha Sanga at Sri Vajiragnana Temple –“Dharmayatanaya”, Maharagama and all other Venerable Maha Sanga for their devout service. It is in their blessings and guidance we are prone to success in everything we do.
We are so deeply in debt to the staff and members of the Cancer Institute Maharagama plus the Hospice for their support in organizing these events focused on cancer patients.
The Hospice and the Bandaranaike wards were graced by the presence of students from “Saradharma Sangamaya” (Association for good moral conduct) of Science College- Mt.Lavinia. We wish to thank the principal, all teachers and students for their service and their large donation of food items to our patients. We will bring a full report of this event in the future on this web blog, till then please accept our sincere gratitude.
We are reminiscent of our generous donors, earnestly blessing them on each and every occasion of religious importance. A special thought of blessing and a very big thanks go to an anonymous individual who surprised us with a substantial fiscal donation to our bank account on the 8th of April. We are overwhelmed of your humble generosity and our solemn wish may the samsara be short for you!
Thank you and bless you all who visit our website and being with us in your thoughts, likewise you all are in our thoughts spreading Meththa universally.
