Munchee supports Mihintale Aloka Pooja and other religious activities for Poson
Munchee, the flagship brand of CBL and the market leader in Sri Lanka’s biscuit industry has come forward to support Mihintale Aloka Pooja and many other religious activities during the forthcoming Poson season as a part of its CSR initiatives.
As many Sri Lankans consider Poson Poya as an important religious, cultural and social event, Munchee would like to join hands with everybody in all endeavours to follow and promote the very meaningful doctrine preached by Arahat Mihindu at the Mihintale or Missaka Pawuva.
As such in conjunction with the Poson Festival, Munchee extends its support to many activities including a Bhakthi Gee competition among Dhamma schools in Anuradhapura, Maddyama Nuwaragam Palatha in association with the Shasanarakshaka Balamandalaya and the Divisional Secretary’s Office.
Groups from round 100 Dhamma schools are expected to take part in the competition which is being organised for the second time. The winners of the competition will present their performances on June 17, 2019, near the Sandahiru Seya, Anuradhapura, from 6:00p.m. onwards.
Arrangements have also been made to serve pilgrims coming to Mihintale on June 15, 16 and 17, 2019, with delicious Munchee biscuits. As a measure of support for the environmental protection, Munchee will also distribute environment-friendly bags to devotees flocking to Mihintale during this season.
In addition, Munchee will donate ‘Pin Poth’ to all devotees who observe Sil at Mihintale on Poson Poya Day.
Pin Potha is a book used by Buddhists to write all meritorious work done by them. The book has been printed under the Munchee sponsorship with the intention of distributing among Buddhist devotees and Dhamma school children.
Munchee, as a truly Sri Lankan brand, has been in the forefront of corporate social responsibility, under many areas including education, arts and culture, sports, disaster relief and community development.
