මනුෂ්යත්වයට ඉඩ දෙන්න
Sangakkara invited the disabled soldiers to the restaurant he co-owns along with chef Darshan Munidasa and former teammate Mahela Jayawardene.
May the dawning of Vesak further enlightenment in our minds. Where we hold dear the teachings of universal love. Peace within ourselves and with each other. The humbling and inspiring beauty of the impermanence of life upon a firmament of a compassionate, united humanity
