Shastrarambhaya - The Initiation (part 2/2)
In a country where traditional ritual dances reserved for kings and gods are sold as crash courses to the rich in the city, two ritual dancers fight an uphill battle to preserve their family tradition.
The Tittapajjala Kala Ayatanaya is Sri Lanka's oldest traditional dance school set up specifically to train up-country aduras (ritual specialists) for shanti karma (healing rituals). Its founder Suramba gurunanse was one of Sri Lanka's finest Ves dancers and up-country ritual specialists. He was from the Tittapajjala bloodline that observed rajakairi (feudal services) under the medieval Kandyan monarchy.
Traditionally aduras were taught a variety of disciplines that included astrology, mathematics, metaphysics, alchemy, ayurvedic medicine, visual and performing arts. They served as both aesthetic and spiritual custodians to the commonwealth. Today pupils enrolling at the school are only interested in learning dance. Still Suramba's two sons Sumanaweera and Samaraweera continue their fathers kala ayatanaya with the same dedication, passion and principles.
All new arrivals to the school undergo this ceremony before they begin formal lessons. Apart from blessing and cleansing the mind, body and soul of an initiate in order to receive the divine art, it also underscores the gravity of his or her undertaking.

Sri Lanka Bans Certain Muslim Garments After Deadly Easter Sunday Attacks | NowThis
Sri Lanka has banned face coverings in public after the Easter Sunday attacks that killed more than 250 people.
» Subscribe to NowThis:
Sri Lanka’s government banned all face coverings for 'public security’ after bomb attacks killed more than 250 people. President Maithripala Sirisena made the announcement on April 28 a week after fatal bombings detonated in churches on Easter Sunday. The president’s office said the ban applies to garments that ‘hinder identification,’ which is understood to include burqas and niqabs
MANAGER OF SAFIYA FASHION, WHICH SELLS HEADSCARVES, NAZAR MOHAMMAD, SAYING: This is for our good I think. Now at this moment, you know the problem in Sri Lanka, according to the problem - face covering - at the moment, its not good because they can't find (if) it is a man or a woman, for that only President may have made this (decision).
YOUNG MUSLIM WOMAN, SHAHANE MUZAMMIL, SAYING: We have to cover our hair, that is compulsory, so wearing the abaya and covering the hair, that is fine.
Roughly 9.8% of the Sri Lankan population identifies as Muslim.
Women who choose to wear face coverings for religious reasons will be predominantly affected by the ban. Muslim groups have been critical of the ongoing desire to control face coverings. Sri Lankan Members of Parliament have proposed bans on women wearing the burqa in the past
Hilmy Ahmed, vice-president of the Sri Lanka Muslim Council, told the BBC: We see this as a reflection of the conflict between the president and the prime minister. We strongly criticise the decision. We will not accept the authorities interfering with the religion without consulting the religious leadership.
In all, roughly 150 people have been arrested in connection to the bombing. Local officials warn that armed militants are still at large

Cuộc diễn hành cung nghinh Xá Lợi Phật và Chư Thánh Chúng do Sư Cô Từ Tâm, Giám Đốc Điều hành và là người tổ chức Siddhartha Compassion School dẫn đầu hệ thống Trường của Sư Cô. Sư Cô Từ Tâm ngoài 70 tuổi là người My gốc Việt, đã từ bỏ cuộc sống êm ấm ở nước My để sang Ấn Độ tạo dựng lên hệ thống Trường Siddhartha Compassion School với ngân khoản do sự đóng góp của những người từ tâm ở nước ngoài. Sư Cô tận tụy cứu giúp các em học sinh bị thất học vì gia đình nghèo khổ. Sư Cô từ ái làm việc tận tụy không giờ phút nghỉ ngơi, lúc nào cũng thương xót các đàn con dại của Đức Từ Phụ Bổn Sư Thích Ca Mâu Ni Phật. Các em được cho ăn mặc sạch sẽ để phá tan đi các sự phân chia đẳng cấp xã hội từng có muôn đời nơi xứ Ấn Độ, mà Đức Phật đã nỗ lực dùng giáo pháp mầu nhiệm của Ngài để loại trừ và san bằng sự phân chia giai cấp trong xã hội. Nhưng hỡi ơi cố tật này vẫn còn tồn tại và chỉ bớt được một phần.
