The RCPTA organised a multi religious ceremony on the 26th of July 2014 in the Whiteboard room of Royal College. It started at 9.00am with the Hindu presentation given by Swami Sarvarupananda – Sawami-in- charge, Ramakrishna Mission, Ceylon Branch. The Principal of Royal College was also present on this day. Swami spoke mainly on religious harmony which was appropriate during a time like this. This was followed by the Christian presentation which was a forceful speech given by our very own member Mrs. Kusum Wickramaratne. Our founder President Mrs. Sujatha Dharmasiri who is very knowledgeable of the Buddha Dhamma spoke about the teachings of the Buddha. In her speech she reminded us about the Buddha’s words. Where did you come from? and where are you going to? None of us know that. It is best we prepare for at least to go somewhere where we will not suffer even if it is in the later years of our life.

An Islam religious presentation was not held on this day.
