  1. This video was well done! I liked how the video had a cartoon, Sinhala language, and English Subtitles. I learned that Maha Prajapati Gotami wanted to be a Bhikkhuni and she went with 500 Sakyan Princesses to Lord Buddha to ask permission to start a Bhikkhuni Sangha and started the Bhikkhuni Sangha on the Binara Full Moon Poya Day. I also learned that Venerable Kiribathgoda Gnanananda Thera started Shraddha TV on the same day that the Bhikkhuni Sangha was made, Binara Full Moon Poya Day.

  2. Namo Buddhaya,
    this video is a great job I learned that Binara Poya Day is very significant and that
    the Supreme Buddha’s disciples are fourfold, Bhikkhu, Bhikkhuni, Upasaka and Upasika.
