Binara Full Moon Poya Day
The most significant event that happened on Binara Poya day was the establishment of Bhikkuni Order (Admission of Nuns to the Buddhist Order).
On the initiative of the Maha Prajapati Gotami, after many requests by her, the Buddha allowed the woman folk to enter the order.
The other significance of this Poya is that it falls during the Vas retreat season of bhikkhus.
The bhikkhus who are in Vas retreat in temples get engaged in acts of guiding the Upasakas and Upasikas in Dhamma path by ways of Dhamma sermons, and advising and helping them in religious rituals such as Bodhi Poojas, in gratitude who look after the bhikkhus in providing them with the four essentials in the life of a bhikkhu namely: Ceevara, pindapatha, senasana, gilanopastana (robes, alms, shelter, and medical care).
The Ata-Sil (Eight Precepts Observance) for Binara Poya Day will be held on Saturday, September 09th, 2017 at the temple from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m
Idha socati pecca socati
papakari ubhayattha socati
so socati so vihannati
Here he grieves, hereafter he grieves; the evil-doer grieves in both existences. He grieves and he suffers anguish when he sees the depravity of his own deeds.
යමක වග්ගය - චුන්ද සූකරික වත්තු
ඉධ සෝචති පෙච්ච සෝචති
පාපකාරී උභයත්ථ සෝචති
සෝ සෝචති සෝ විහඤ්ඤති
පව් කරන්නා මෙලොවත් ශෝක කරයි.
පරලොවත් ශෝක කරයි.
දෙලොවම ශෝක කරයි.
හෙතෙම තමාගේ අපිරිසිදු වූ (කාය, වාග්, මන) පාප කර්මයන් බලා බලවත් සේ ශෝක කරයි.
