Holding on the theme of the “People for people, life for life” Patiya Central Buddhist Monastery & Welfare Complex’s Founder & Principal Ven. Dr. Sanghapriya Mahathero organized the distribution of blankets to under privileged people at the monastery’s premises. In this humanitarian work, the most venerable Dr. Bhante Saranapala, Founder & President of “Canada: A Mindful and Kind Nation” was present as a chief guest. At beginning of the program street children paid respect with floral wreaths and the students of Nalanda gave a gift to him. Then he preached the motivational talk to all of us which was very mind-blowing and heaheart-touching. He distributed blankets among the underprivileged people who came to receive blankets with happiness. This kind of humanitarian and welfare activity has been done for nearest about 16 years by most Venerable Dr. Sanghapriya Mahathero, Secretary General of Bangladesh Sangharaj Bhikkhu Mahasabha.
We are very glad and grateful to Ven. Dr. Saranapala Mahathero for his kind visit to our monastery and take our hospitality. He is an urban Buddhist monk & humanitarian monk who is working in welfare activities around the world.
