Sri Lanka: Vedi Perahera of the Indigenous People

SLVediP2By Sri Lal Perera

Long before Arahath Mahendra visited this island  with  the Buddha's message ,  and converted the faith of King Devana Pe Tissa (306 B.C. ), it is believed that Gauthama Buddha himself had set his eyes on this island 3 times out of which the 1st time was to  Mahiyanganaya .

At Mahiyanganaya the purpose of  the Buddha's visit it is believed was to  subdue the Yakksas (Yaksa Damanaya - suppressing the devils).
