Henriksdal SpringTour - harmony by AndersStangl

Well.....here we go 100 words which is SO stupid! Anders is one of my MOST favorite Photographers on d/a especially where SPORT comes i...

I am HOPING that what I write below gives many people 'pause' to think about the significance of this wonderful place.
With all the Religious and 'inane' wars going on now several sites here in Sri Lanka are about coming together whatever your Religious feelings:

Situated in the Eastern part of SL.....Kataragama is at the end of an island wide Pilgrimage site.
Along with Adams Peak(Sri Pada),  Kataragama is the most important Pilgrimage site and a holy place for Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims alike.
It is one of those wonderful places where the most outlandish of legends becomes solid fact and magic floats in clouds of incense.
It is believed that a SL King build a shrine for the resident god here in the 2nd C BC and that the Buddhist Dagoba dates back to the 1stC BC.  However it is thought to have been significant for even longer.
The long 'walk' (pilgrimage) begins 45days before, on a significant Full Moon (Poya Day). Devout Pilgrims feel they are walking in the steps of the god Kataragama(also known as Murugan).
The Veddas were thought to be the first Pilgrims on this route.

All the above is taken from Lonely Planet with little 'asides' by me.

As I said above the most wonderful aspect of this whole area is the coming together of three important religions.
There is NO animosity. Each religion visits each others shrines and Dagobas............truly wonderful in this present time.

I want to thank so many people for their continual support of my work...............:hug:'ssss

Llamas

To everyone who has given me LLamas, thank you all SO much.
I am very grateful.
LOL

REMEMBER. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT IF YOU ARE A SERIOUS ARTIST.

I spend a lot of time 'browsing' artists I like.
The MOST important thing to me, is viewing the last pictures in the galleries.
These pics. are often the most interesting because you can see how an artist develops over a period of time.

SO: If 'browsing' someone you like............go to their very last picture, they are often forgotten or 'over-looked' because this is where they started from.
INFLUENCE: is the key!
