Meditation Hall inaugurated at Margherita Buddha Vihar

Margherita Buddha Vihar's new meditation hall was inaugurated on Wednesday. Margherita Buddha Vihar head monk Bhikkhu Gyanowada Mahathera said that years ago he planned for a meditation hall at Margherita Buddha Vihar, and that dream was fulfilled on Wednesday after so many people had contributed for that noble work.

On Wednesday, an inauguration ceremony was held at Margherita Buddha Vihar where more than 500 devotees of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh attended. The program began when Acharya Karuna Shastri hoisted the World Buddhist flag. This was followed by the inauguration of "Dhamma Sangini Meditation Hall" by Palash Rajkumar Ahom, ADC(i/c) Margherita.

A free health camp was organized by Siu-Kha-Pha Hospital at Sibsagar's Margherita region where patients from the far-flung areas of Margherita came for treatment.

As the evening approached, more than 2000 candles were lit at Margherita Buddha Vihar which made the sanctity more attractive.
