Sri Lanka who follow the lunar calendar believe that a new month dawns on every full moon day. So on that fool moon day in June commemorates the first step of Mahinda Thero a Buddhist monk who started speaking of Lord Buddha to the nation of Sri Lanka. Though it is supposed to be celebrated by the Buddhist people of the country, many other join in too. Buddhist who believe on the basis of doing good thing give ‘Dansal’ which is a activity of giving things like ice cream, drinks or a meal of rice to the needy but even then its provided to anyone passing by.
