Dear Dhamma Friends,


This is a friendly reminder regarding the up-coming BC Buddhist Festival 2018 which will be held on Sunday, June 10, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver. See below e-mail for festival information. As informed previously, the Board of Directors of BVS decided to participate at this event to show our solidarity with other Buddhist Organizations as we did in the past two years. This is one of the great opportunity for us to make aware and spread Buddhism in the Western World. We kindly request your participation and volunteering.

Group of our devotees lead by Madhawa Amarasinghe are performing Bakthi Gee (Divotional Songs) & Cultural Performances during this event. Their performance session will commence at 1:00 p.m. and end at 1:30 p.m. If you are interested in joining the performance group, please kindly contact Madhawa Amarasinghe @ 778-242-0623 for details. We also kindly request you all to visit and provide your support to them at the day of the event.


If you are willing to be part of our volunteer group or would interest in exhibiting Sri Lankan Buddhist arts and culture activities, please contact Henry Subasinghe @ 604-588-6920 or send an e-mail to


Thank you for your attention and looking forward to your participation to make our society proud. The organizing committee informed that portion of money raised from this event will be distributed among the participating Buddhist Societies as done in the past and therefore, consider this as a fund raising event for BVS as well.


With Mettha,
