Buddhists monks to hold prayer meeting at Nallur temple

[TamilNet, Sunday, 23 February 2003, 13:33 GMT]
The arrival of a group of one hundred Buddhist monks from south to Jaffna Sunday has been delayed by one day. The group will arrive Jaffna Monday to hold a prayer meeting lighting oil lamps at the historic Nallur Kandasamy Temple on the same day evening, sources said.

The prayer meeting has been organized to mark the completion of one year of the ceasefire agreement signed by the United National Front government and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in February last year, sources said.

A delegation of the Consortium of Humanitarian Agencies in Jaffna (CHAJ) will receive the Buddhist monks at Sri Lanka Army checkpoint at Muhamalai Monday morning, sources said.

Officials of the CHAJ are to meet Monday morning at their office and will then proceed to Muhamalai to receive the Buddhist monks, sources further said.
