Vesak Festival

Poya holidays take place in Sri Lanka every full moon, but the most important of them is Vesak Poya in May. It’s a chance for Buddhists to celebrate the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and death with prayer, mediation and partying. Many religious activities are organized during this period in Sri Lanka such as Sil campaigns, Bodhi Poojas, Dansalas (Free foods, coffee, tea from people being distributed), Vesak devotional songs (Bakthi Gee), pandols (thoran) and lanterns being hanged everywhere.
