“The culture of giving alms to commemorate Vesak and Poson has gained huge tourist attraction. No other country in the world has alms giving culture of similar manner” says Hon Mahinda Amaraweera
 
 

He expressed these views commencing the event of offering alms (rice and curry) held in the Peliyagoda Fish Market Complex organized by the Association of Managers and Businessmen of the fish market.

 “Today during my journey from Colombo to Peliyagoda I saw at least 50 almsgivings and all of them were heavily crowded and the people seemed so happy and enthusiastic. People visit almsgiving not merely because they are hungry. It gives them a great pleasure to have food from an almsgiving”

“Other countries also have numerous religious festivals. Once I was told by a foreigner that he has traveled many countries but none of them had this type of almsgiving culture. So he said that he visits our country every year with his children to experience these almsgivings”

 “Almsgiving culture is not something intruding or alien to us. It was gifted to us by Buddhism and we have been practicing it from the time immemorial”

 “We should always conduct these meritorious events without causing any kind of inconvenience to the public and they should not be forced have food if they are not willing to do so”  

 “However many foreign tourists show great interest to have food from these almsgivings. This can be considered as a good tendency because they share this experience with others when are back and it would be a good way to promote the good aspects of our culture in other countries” also said the Minister”
