Commander of the Navy pays homage to Sacred Tooth Relic in Kandy

Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva after assuming office as the 23rd Commander of the Navy, visited Kandy and paid homage to the Sacred Tooth Relic at the Temple of the Tooth yesterday (05). Further, the new Navy Commander called on the Mahanayakes of the Malwatte and Asgiriya Chapters to receive their blessings. 
The Navy Commander first called on the Mahanayake of the Malwatte Chapter, the Most Venerable Thibbotuwawa Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera and the Mahanayake of the Asgiriya Chapter, the Most Venerable Warakagoda Sri Gnanarathana Thera to receive their blessings. The Mahanayake Theros invoked the blessings of the Triple Gem on the new Navy Commander and delivered a brief ‘Anushasana’ wishing him strength and courage to carry out the duties entrusted to him. Vice Admiral Silva, paying obeisance to the Mahanayake Theros, offered them ‘Atapirikara’ and expressed his heartfelt gratitude for their wise counsel.
Thereafter, he visited the Temple of the Tooth and met the Diyawadana Nilame, Mr. Pradeep Nilanga Dela Bandara. Vice Admiral Silva placed his signature in the visitors’ book and presented the Diyawadana Nilame a special memento, after sharing a light moment with the Chief Custodian of Sri Dalada Maligawa.
