Awareness Raising for Bhikkhunis on the Importance of Indigenous Foods and Ayurveda

The Buddhist International recently organized an awareness raising program for Bhikkhunis, on the importance of indigenous food and Ayurveda. It was conducted by the medical experts of the Department of Ayurveda, Sri Lanka. More than twenty five Bhikkhunis of Dekanduwala Bhikkhuni Training Center, Horana, attended the program. The attempt was highly appreciated by the participants. Appreciating the event, the incumbent of the center Ven. Dhammashanthi Bhikkhuni stated, such kind of inputs are absolutely useful for Bhikkhunis who conduct different sermons and other Dhamma discussions, so that the knowledge will flow into the society in order to make the people healthy. Next program will be conducted for larger number of Bhikkhunis representing other monasteries in the area.
