Princess Yasodara, taking refuge in the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha, and the ordination of her son Rahula and Prince Nanda were some of the important events that took place on this day.

The religious observances were carried out at the Shakya Malakaya opposite the Capital Maharaja Organisation once again today(March 20).
