PMS-700-01

President Maithripala Sirisena has in his New Year message wishes that the island be blessed with bountiful harvest of peace and prosperity.

In his message, President Sirisena states: "The evolution of human civilization has taken place from era to era enriching the people as cultured entities. The unique cultural events celebrated by various people around the world indicate the affinity and utmost dedication towards their traditional heritages.

The Sinhala and Tamil New Year showcases the traditional riches of the Eastern people. 'Aluth Avurudda' is indeed an introduction of a new human with a new vision and a new attitude to the society. By conforming a study of oneself during the transitional time of the inauspicious period, this advanced person performs New Year rituals, enters the society as a close relative carrying the message of peaceful co-existence and social reconciliation.

The New Year binds with the traditional customs which blooms inter relations and family relationships and showers the human thoughts with refreshing fragrance which flows to the future with our deep understanding and respect we have for the traditions of the New Year.

By deeply studying this glorious cultural event, which harvests progressive values and ethics to the whole society and celebrating it, we can surely collect a bountiful harvest of peace and prosperity.

Another invaluable aspect of New Year celebrations is that they depict the lively bond which the humans share historically with the nature and how this occasion is utilized to express gratitude to the nature, thus exhibiting the great virtues of our ancestors that carried forth for generations.

Sharing such great values with everybody, I wish all the Sri Lankans who are living in the country and outside a Sinhala and Tamil New Year filled with peace and prosperity."
