Some people need certain rituals to show their devotion and faith but eventually the inner transformation is what is needed for spiritual upliftment. Thanks to those involved in defeating the LTTE, which has made this event possible on a large scale, after many years.

Peace is not the absence of war. It is the presence of justice and the absence of fear.Can we claim that this is the situation in Sri Lanka

This is just a ritual only which can be practiced by any human being under the sun, but practicing what is preached to save thy soul is not easy.
