Poson poya is one of the most important and precious days in Sri Lanka’s Buddhist calendar, as it was the day that Arahat Mahinda from India formally introduced “Buddhism” to the people of Sri Lanka. Undoubtedly, the ‘Mahindagamanaya’ is the most religious significant milestone in the history of Sri Lanka.
This land belongs to all living and nonliving species. In addition, the environment acts as a major role when we consider Poson poya day. Most people go to worship temples and pilgrimages to sacred places.
Without concern, for the scenic beauty of nature people litter garbage everywhere. They are not trying to dispose of garbage properly and tidy.
To conclude, we should commit ourselves to making our lives meaningful according to the teachings of Buddha while paying attention to the sayings related to nature. Moreover, we have to keep our environment clean for our future generations.
