The Old Nalandians' Buddhist Association has organised the event under the guidance of Principal of Nalanda College, Hemantha Prematilleke, who is also the Chief Lay Advisor to the Association.
The Buddhist monks will be conducted in a procession to the school by the students, from Sri Sumangalarama temple in Colombo. Nalanda College Principal Hemantha Prematilleke said that 100 Buddha statues which would be brought into the school by the Mahasangha would be placed in each classroom of the school.
Dhamma sermons, Bodhi pujas, acts of alms giving to the Mahasangha and pirith sajjayanas will be held throughout the day.
Prematilleke said that this was the biggest religious event that Nalanda College had organised and he planned to hold it every year as a means to indicate the importance of persisting with moral values.
