EVENTS & PROGRAM
Adelaide Sri Lanka Buddhist Vihara Inc. (ASBV) engages in a broad scale of social and cultural programs for the benefit of both Sri Lankan and non-Sri Lankan communities in South Australia.
ASBV also offers a comprehensive educational program, including linguistic, cultural and religious components to children in the community through the Sinhala Buddhist School, which is registered under the Ethnic Schools Association of South Australia. Moreover, aspiring to be a community hub in South Australia, ASBV extends a wide range of non-religious volunteer services, community awareness programs (e.g. Blood donation and Organ & Tissue Donation Program) and charity work (e.g., New Migrants and International student support programs, Community Emergency support programs etc.) and reaches out to the broader Australian community irrespective of their cultural, ethnic or religious dissimilarities in view of fostering cross cultural relationships and promoting multiculturalism in the state as well as the country at large.
ASBV is the overarching multicultural organisation, which works collaboratively with several Sri Lankan multicultural organisations in South Australia to foster cross-cultural relationships and organises major annual social and cultural events including Sinhala and Tamil New Year (April), Vesak Festival (May) Annual Sri Lankan Curry Night (June), Katina Ceremony (October) where over 1000 participants take part alongside hundreds of volunteers.
