Madin Poya

Madin  Poya Program will be observed on Saturday, March, 3rd, 2018 from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm at the Georgia Buddhist Vihara. We invite you all to join the program.

Madin Full Moon Poya Day is the Siddhartha Gautama Buddha seven years after his Abhiniskaramanaya to meet the relatives. in response to the persuasion of Arahat Kaludai, set out from Rajagahanuwara to Kapilavasthu  Nuwara with 20,000 Monks, which led to four most significant events.

A. Ordination of his stepbrother Prince Nanda, assisting him to realize the distraction caused by the beauty of his bride Janapadakalyani, by showing him visions of heavenly maidens and the seared dead body of a female monkey.
B. Taking refuge in the Three refuges of Princess Yasodara Devi.
C. Attainment of Sothapanna by his father King Suddhodana and of his stepmother Prajaphathie Gothami.
D. The ordination of his son Prince Rahula.

The message that Buddha had come to the palace, spread in a so quickly all over the city and around like a high wind, causing the environment around the palace assume a pleasant atmosphere as to welcome the arrival of the Lord  Buddha.
The Sakyan elders who gathered at the palace premises overwhelmed with their Sakyan pride, disclosed their reluctance to pay respect to the Buddha saying, “Siddhartha is younger than us, he is my nephew, he is my grandson,   after all, we are Sakyans,” and so on. However, only the young people were put forward for the ritual.
