Yangon Region Government held a New Year Dhamma Donation Ceremony at the People’s Park at the foot of Shwedagon Pagoda yesterday evening.
Yesterday evening, Rector Sayadaw Dr. Bhaddanta Nanda Mala Bivamsa gave a sermon.
Among the congregation were Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein, Yangon Region Hluttaw Speaker U Tin Maung Tun, regional ministers, Deputy Speaker U Lin Naing Myint, government officials and devotees from townships in Yangon Region.
Commenting on the sermon, Daw Nwe Nwe Win of North Okkalapa Township said, “It is a mingalar (auspiciousness) to start a new year by listening to the sermon of well-known Sayadaws. Today’s sermon is about the importance of living a life with morality. If people live according to this way of live taught by the sayadaw, they’ll become good person to their communities.
The sermon was very useful for me and I wish that this good tradition is maintained in the following years.”
The New Year Dhamma Donation ceremony will be held for three days until 3 January. Sitagu Sayadaw and Sayadaw Ashin Sanda Dika will deliver their sermons on the second day and third day respectively.
Similar New Year Dhamma Donation ceremony was held by Yangon Region Government for five days from 1 to 5 January 2016. — Zaw Gyi
