Lyceum Nugegoda hosted the Vesak Devotional Singing program at the Beira Lake during the Buddharashmi National Vesak Festival. This initiative enhanced the spiritual ambiance of the arena, receiving blessings from the Maha Sangha and leaders of various religious faiths, including Catholicism, Islam, Christianity, and Hinduism.

The participation of leaders from diverse religious backgrounds showcased a meaningful Vesak celebration, resonating with the teachings of Gautama Buddha. This display of spiritual harmony and togetherness exemplified the essence of Vesak, emphasising respect and unity.

The Buddharashmi National Vesak Festival, organised by the Gangarama Temple in collaboration with the Presidential Secretariat, is one of the largest Vesak celebrations in Sri Lanka. The Lyceum’s Buddhabhivandana featured devotional songs performed by students alongside the management, academic staff, and parents, adding a vibrant touch to the festivities.

The Buddhabhivandana program not only enriched the spiritual experience of attendees but also highlighted the importance of interfaith dialogue and cooperation in fostering unity and harmony in society.
