I came across this Wikipedia page today when trying to research the auspicious times for the 2019 Sinhala New Year (Aluth Avurudda). I had not encountered it before —  though it appears that it was created in 2017.

I am glad it is there. It is a good start. Already a fair amount of information. That they don’t have the auspicious times for this year’s New Year is a bit of a shame. But, Bravo. We now have a foothold, on this topic, on Wikipedia. It will continue to grow and prosper. I am glad.


Happy Sinhala New Year 2019.

The 3rd New Year of the Year for I.
But you can never have too many.

Enjoy. Rejoice.

Sinhala New Year (Avurudu) 2018 — Auspicious Times In The U.S.

by Anura Guruge



This is for all of you celebrating the Sinhala New Year in the U.S. and Canada. I don’t know of any, but I guess, given that we are everywhere, that there must be Sinhalese in Mexico and even further South.

Well the auspicious times are invariably given just in Sri Lanka time and that +10.5 time difference can get tricky to convert to U.S. time especially when you have to start with 2:04am. So, I did it for you — albeit just for Eastern. But, all of you know how to convert time from Eastern … plus it is easy enough.

So, here we go.

Dawn of the 2018 Sinhala New Year: Saturday, April 14th @ 2:04am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Friday, April 13th @ 4:34pm (U.S.: Eastern)

Lighting of the heart, and cooking first meal: Saturday, April 14th @ 5:41am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Friday, April 13th @ 8:11pm (U.S.: Eastern)

Commencing work, transactions & partaking in first meal: Saturday, April 14th @ 7:05am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Friday, April 13th @ 9:35pm (U.S.: Eastern)

Anointing with oil: Sunday, April 15th @ 11:04am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Sunday, April 15th @ 1:34am (U.S.: Eastern)

Departing for work: Tuesday, April 17th @ 6:28am (in Sri Lanka) —->> Monday, April 16th @ 8:58pm (U.S.: Eastern)

So, the Old Year, in the U.S., will be on Thursday, April 13th.

OK? Got that.


Happy Sinhala New Year 2017.

The 3rd New Year of the Year for I.
But you can never have too many.

Enjoy. Rejoice.

I actually don’t celebrate the Sinhala New Year, other than in my mind, because there is nobody around here to celebrate it with. I also have given up on astrology.

But I did this for nostalgia, because I do remember all of this well.

Enjoy. Happy New Year.

I didn’t download it because a lot of it is in Sinhalese (which I, alas, can’t read anymore) and, everything said, I don’t really have a need for a Sri Lankan calendar.

Despite, what should have been bitter lessons learnt about the fallacy and idiocracy of mumbo-jumbo astrology from the last elections and the last ICC World Cup, millions of Sri Lankans, superstitiously, believe in all the auspicious time palava. Growing up I was all caught up in that too. Now I know better. Well it gives a lot of comfort to a lot of people. Shame, but it is true. Well this APP should help them.

Happy New Year, auspicious times or no auspicious times.
