Unduvap Poya also known as Sanghamittha Day commemorates the arrival of a bodhi tree sapling to Sri Lanka and its subsequent planting. The transmission of the sapling is attributed to a nun named Sanghamittha. Devotees are seen observing religious rituals to mark the day. Pix by Pradeep Pathirana

    Jeewithaya aniyathaya, Maranaya niyathaya but Hair dye samathanamaya. If you know what the reality in life as Lord Buddha preached, no one will wear a wig or colour their hair.
