I wish you and your family a happy, peaceful and prosperous Sinhala and Tamil New Year
   
 
I was deeply saddened by the passing away of the Most Venerable Udugama Sri Buddharakkitha Thera, The Mahanayake of the Asgiriya Chapter. The Most Venerable Thera made a huge contribution towards fostering national unity, inter-religious harmony and social integrity. I had the enormous privilege of benefiting from his words of wisdom and compassion, and I am extremely grateful to the Most Venerable Thera for fearlessly supporting me during the challenges I had last year, which I sincerely appreciate. The passing away of the Most Venerable Thera is a great loss for our country and our people.
   
 
Wishing you and your family a blessed and joyful Easter filled with peace and happiness.
   
 
GREAT TO BE BACK IN SRI LANKA
   
 
I WISH YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES A HAPPY, PEACEFUL AND PROSPEROUS 2015 !
On the 26th of December, I remember the people who lost their lives in the tsunami of 2004, and I also remember all the relief efforts of the Sri Lankan people. As we enter the New Year 2015 with renewed hope and optimism, we look forward to being of service to all our people, because I believe that “IF WE DO SMALL THINGS WITH GREAT LOVE, THEN TOGETHER WE CAN DO SOMETHING WONDERFUL". I WISH YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES A HAPPY, PEACEFUL AND PROSPEROUS 2015 !
   
 
HAPPY CHRISTMAS
Thank you for the wonderful messages you have all sent me, which I deeply appreciate. My Christmas prayer is that you and your families will be blessed, and that your homes will be filled with the gifts of peace, love and happiness throughout the year. HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
