Sri Lanka Telecom’s PEO TV programmes on Buddhist teachings through its latest channel, Shraddha TV, started transmission on Saturday (29), Binara Poya Day.

At its launch held last Friday it was announced the new channel will have transmissions every day, from 5 a .m. to 11 p.m.


SLT Chief Executive Greg Young told the occasion that this channel was the result of unprecedented requests for Buddhist television programmes.

Shraddha TV will transmit programmes on various subjects creatively to cater to children, and the young and the old alike, said Ven. Aludeniye Subhodhi Thera.

Speaking at the launch chairperson of the new television channel Roshini Rajapakse said the programme would help foster religious life, inculcating Metta (Loving Kindness), Karuna (Compassion), Muditha (Sympathetic joy) and Upeksha (Equanimity) in society.
