Binara Poya Program - Saturday September 10th

The Binara Poya will be observed on Saturday, September 10th, from 7.30 am to 6.30 pm at Georgia Buddhist Vihara. 

Binara Poya (Full moon day) commemorates the establishment of the Bhikkhuni Order in Gautama Buddha Sasana.On the initiative of the Maha Prajapati Gotami, after many requests by her, the Buddha allowed the woman folk to enter the order.
