« on: April 10, 2006, 05:40:23 AM »
The Aluth Sahal Mangalyya, organised by the Agrarian Development Department will be held early today with the participation of President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickremenayake.

The festival will begin with the observing of the traditional boiling of the milk at the four entrances to the Sri Maha Bodhiya.

The Hevisi Shabda pooja will begin at 6 a.m. and end at dawn the next day. Pirith will begin at 8 a.m. The offering of milk and heel danaya to the Maha Sangha will be held on April 11.

This will be followed by a procession carrying the aluth sahal (new rice) to the Bo Maluwa, to which ceremony the President, Ministers and other invitees are expected to join. The day ends with an alms giving to the Maha Sangha.
