Myanmar Student Monks Association in Sri Lanka has planned to hold the ceremony of recitation of Patthana texts on March 10. More than 30 Buddhist monks will recite Patthana texts non-stop for 24 hours. 

The event will be hosted by the historic Sithulpawawa Monastery in Southern Sri Lanka, a Buddhist Temple where thousands of meditating Buddhist monks lived during 1st Century AD.

"We will recite the Patthana texts for protection from all dangers, for the freedom of all political prisoners including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, and for the betterment of the people  of Burma," said the leader monk Ven. Obhasa.

Myanmar Student Monks Association, also known as Lanka-MSMA, founded on 27 September 2007 in Colombo, Sri Lanka, aims to unite the Burmese people and strive for the preservation of their culture by calling for more human rights and fundamental freedoms, such as freedom of religion.
