S-lon revives Avurudu Traditions
Practicing customs and traditions that come along with Avurudu celebrations are crucial for preserving our cultural identity. They serve as a reminder of past events that shaped the lives of our ancestors and defines the structure of our families. Practicing these customs not only help strengthen family bonds, but they also promote goodwill, reinforce community ties and instil social values.
Unfortunately these traditions are fading away each year as evident by the declining interest shown by the present generation. The demanding lifestyles and frustrating routines do not permit to connect with our families and communities like we used to. In pursuit of preserving these fading traditions of Avurudu, S-lon initiated the sacred ritual of Anointing Oil (Hisa them gema) for the send year at the Sri Natha Maha Devalaya -Kandy, with a commitment to promote national unity, social wellbeing and preserving our cultural heritage. This historic temple is the oldest religious establishment in Kandy and plays an important role in supplying and preparing medicinal herbs that go with the ceremonial bath taken at the auspicious time for the Sinhala Tamil New Year.
The event was telecasted live on Sirasa TV with a live panel discussion on the significance of the age old tradition.
