No Fighting over Food, or Else!

The Kaludiya Pokuna Forest, Sri Lanka #6 by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

A medieval Sinhalese inscription on the wall of a kutti, a shallow rock niche used by meditative Buddhist monks, in the Kaludiya Pokuna Forest, in north-central Sri Lanka. The script declares that the rice and buffalo curd donated to the Dakkinagiri Viharaya by a certain Mr Dathanaga in the 9th century would be given instead to the cows and dogs if the priests were to fight over the food. Shot for my photo story, A Mountain Monastery Forgotten by Time, which ran in the March 2018 issue of Serendib magazine.
