Personal Shrine

Personal Altar by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

In spite of the fact that the entire Sri Maha Bodhi Seya, in Mahiyanganaya, is a shrine covered both inside and out by images of the Buddha, someone — probably a caretaker — had installed a small makeshift shrine in a hidden nook at the rear, complete with offering bowl. The Sri Maha Bodhi Seya, a replica of the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya, India, was built in 1989 by President Ranasinghe Premadasa. For more on Mahiyanganaya, read my story, The Temple of War, in the April 2016 issue of Explore Sri Lanka magazine.
