The Sri Lankan Cricket team left for Australia yesterday night to take part in the 2010 Australian Cricket tour. The Sri Lankan cricket team is seen taking part in religious observances before their departure. Pix by Pradeep Pathirana
In the Buddhist philosophy there is nothing called blessing some one to come with good results.

Buddhist and Hindu religious observances. Good.

Wish you all the very best guys! We are waiting here in Australia to welcome you and to watch you win this series with flying colours.

Australian tour in 1995 set the path to that triumph and will this be another ...........

Whatever said, these rituals send out positive vibes. These are not done just to ensure victory but for the whole good. Maybe the Sri Lankan team escaped from a worse situation than what they went through during their Pakistan tour, because of this??

It's praying, not in Buddhist phylosphy. This is a blessing that even your parents can do.

Our players don't need blessing. Blessing won't bring success. But they need motivation and self belief to beat Australia. Instead of this religious ceremony, a mental fitness program will do a lot.

Nothing fails like prayers...!

These are just rituals and nothing more, they neither bring victory or defeat. Just utter nonsense.
