The most Venerable Madihe Pannasiha MahaNayaka Thero inaugurated the DharmaVijaya Foundation in Colombo. In connection with this effort, the Bodhiraja - Dharmavijaya Society was formed in 1979 with a vision to coordinate and facilitate their social service activities in the region, in the Hambantota and Ratnapura Districts.
As of then, numerous social development activities such as nutrition, health care, scholarship and temperance programs have been conducted with the assistance of the DharmaVijaya Foundation Colombo. The temple in a village should be a common place for social services in the area. Therefore, the Bodhiraja Dharmayathanaya premises is open for such services without any hindrance.
