Mount Lavinia Hotel Celebrates Vesak

Hellen Keller quoted “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” The staff members of Mount Lavinia Hotel proved just that when they made this beautiful vesak lantern. This year instead of the vesak lantern competition, all staff members got together to make one gigantic yet beautiful lantern.

Mr. Nissanka Mapa, President of the Buddhist Society of MLH said “Next year we’re hoping to have an even bigger lantern with discarded material in order to eliminate waste and protect our environment going full round with the 3R’s – Reduce, Re-use and Recycle.”

The lighting of the lamp was done on the 14th May (Vesak Full Moon Poya Day)  by Mr & Mrs Wickramasinghe; a lovely couple who has made MLH their second home and Dr. Publis Silva.
