Other Buddha Images & Gatha’s

For all these times this tree was known by the world as Asathu tree and later it was termed as Jaya Siri Maha Bodin Wahanse [3]. Today the place where it was built is called Thiriyaaya. It was because Gautama Buddha was born dharmmaya this Deepathe island. The whole idea of using this term is to show this relationship that it has Gautama Buddha. Accordingly, the name Siril ak Bima too was used for this Helabima. They do sing special stanzas, verses and songs in hdarmaya and coming down from the Peak.

Most of these songs are based on the virtues of Buddha. Even during the time that Buddha lived in this Helabimathe people in the Buddhist world had a practice of worshipping Atamasthana. Hence there are no any doubts over the fact that worshipping of eight numbers of sacred footprints and eight numbers of offshoots of Bo tree would have been the basis for the Buddhist concepts such as Atamasthana and Ashtapala Bodhi [1].

This concept of worshipping Atamasthna is very clearly mentioned in the Indian history book written by the great Indian historian Professor A L Basham.

These Atamasthna had been changed from time to time. It is not possible to decide the period of the beginning of the writing of these Atamasthanabut the names of the places which were worshipped in the respective eras are taken into paragraphs and are written them down.

Now, carefully look in to the names of the sacred places, the Viharas worshipped in the ancient times, mentioned in the Vihara Asana. These names are taken in to one category, one line. We as genuine Buddhists living in our Helabima should understand this. Why were these written in our Pirith Potha?

For a very long period of years and more, even prior to the growth of the kingdom of Anuradhapurathe rulers of the country, members of the royal families and also the people in the country paid their homage to these eight great places. Or in other words it is situated in the Madya Mandala.

This point is exactly where the sacred Bodhi tree of Hiriwadunna is resided. Anyone can reach this place of serene beauty by turning to the left from the km post of Dambulla — Habara road and walking for another one kilo meter on the gravel road. It should dharamya mentioned here that it is from the very ancient times that this sacred Bodhi tree is called Sudu Bodhiya [4].

Today they are placed in front yard of the museum in Anuradhapura.

Here both sacred footprints of the Buddha and also the sacred Jaya Siri Maha Bodhi are engraved and presented. This Vajrasana is still there, permanently fixed to the very base of the Bodhi tree. You too can go there and get it verified that this Vajrasana is permanently fixed to the root base of the Bodhi tree in a way that no one can shake out, change or destroy it.

This was identified as the Indasaala cave with the help of a rock-cut inscription found in this cave.

Based on the available ruins of the paintings it is proved even to this date that this cave had been adorned in a way then Buddha could spend his rainy season there. This is mentioned very clearly in the Tripitaka Canon.

Professor Paranavithana also had identified and declared this place as Indasaala Cave. Later, the God Sakra [6] was also called Sakkassa Deva. It is very clear that the kings of the Sakkassa Dynasty who reigned that area in the past had built a special Vihara in memory of the birth of Sidduhath and had paid their homage to that Vihara.


It can be seen that there had been a Seya of that nature in the past, later it had been destroyed and buddhs. The route direction to this place and some more information about that had been mentioned in the first place and please read that as well. A very long period like eight hundred years, the ancient Buddhist kings and the people had used this place as one significant place among other Atamasthana to go and pay their homage.

Thought this rock plane is not having a great height, hundreds of thousands of people can gather there at once. This can be seen even to this date. A well with everlasting supply of water is also situated there. There is a very peculiar line of banyan trees stretching to the east side of the Arahant Guhait is actually a massive banyan tree which has covered a large djarmaya. Next to dhatmaya banyan tree is a deer forest stretching over an area of acres. Even to this date that one can notice the visits of animals like deer and peacocks to the deer forest.

This is natural scenery for wild life.

And also it is necessary to mention here that in the past this place was coming under the kingdom called Kasi. This most ancient sacred Bodhi tree is well protected and still surviving there for anyone to go and pay the due respect and honor. Somewhere closer to that period, a pair of sacred footprints of Buddha which was blessed by the Gautama Buddha is enshrined and built a Vihara.

This Vihara was used for worshipping and this place was popular dhagmaya one of the places of Atamasthna in the past. This is proved by a rock slate which is engraved with figures of cobras and cobra bddha. Hence the origination of this Buddha Sasana was occurred in this sacred place.

That day, the areas coming under dharaya kingdom of Malla were stretching from Ambilipitiya to the richest upper region of river Walawe. This Kusinara is a small city protected by nature. The ruins of Raja Maha Vihara in Budugala. Even to this date the ruins of this chamber of the sacred tooth relic can be seen there in Budugala. Hence this nuddha too was considered as a place of Atamasthana.

In this same cave a pair of sacred footprints of Buddha which were blessed by Buddha himself was placed and worshipping of them were started dhatmaya that period itself.

They secretly brought the sacred tooth relic of Buddha to Anuradhapura and handed over dhramaya to the ruler of Anuradhapura, King Kithsiri Mewan. Until such time it was not written in the history buedha the custom of worshipping the sacred tooth relic of Buddha was conducted in the kingdom of Anuradhapura.

This was by the time of AD. After that, near 20 years of the latter part of his life, Gautama Buddha lived and preached his Dhamma in this centre in the Jethavanarama monastery in the Ritigala Peak.

The dharrmaya of Savath was disappeared from the trails of the history as this region was fully covered by the thick jungles for a period years and more.

What is significant in this sacred ground which was built by the Count Sudaththa is that all the Viharas and monasteries found there are made with solid rocks. What can be seen in all these places is that all these most exclusive creations of solid rocks are made using one common technology and they had spread well across Helabima in the ancient times.

In connection to the story of Ritigalaeverybody talks about someone lived in Ritigala called Ritigala Jayasena. The elders in Ritigala remind this name Jayasena even to this date with all the due respects and honor. This town is situated very closer to Ritigala. It can be seen that an attempt had been made to build Viharas and monasteries as much as similar to the ones in Ritigala in this Maanawa Kanda monastery as well. It is very obvious that both these places are built in the same period using the identical technology.


Today this sacred Bodhi tree cannot dharmayq identified as it was covered and disappeared by the great jungle. The Ritigala Peak is surrounded by a mountain range and the bufdha says that there had been another 8 dharrmaya lands in these mountains. In this mother earth, the biggest Buddhist heritage of this Buddha Kalpa [14] was situated here in this place.

That is in Rajagala in Ampara. Most of the Eighty Great Disciples of Buddha entered in to the Order and spent the rest of their life in this wild park of Rajagala. Even before the beginning of the kingdom of Anuradhapura, for thousand years, this kingdom of Magadha was the most developed kingdom in this Helabima. But, the thousands of budxha ruins discovered from this area prove that djarmaya had been so rich and glorious in the ancient times.

That is a good example to prove that this sacred place had been a very safe place in the past. The Great Arahant Mahinda Thero who entered budrha to the Order and learnt Dhamma in the city of Rajagahawho experienced the fruition of the supermundane path was a member in a royal family in India.

Buddha Dharmaya

He was a very close relation of King Ashoka. By this time, driven by the influence made by HelabimaBuddha Dhamma had spread out to the regions in south India till river Kaveri. This inscription engraved in a solid rock is placed next to a Chaitya. Now this Chaitya had been destroyed by the treasure hunters and even to this date it can be seen some ruins of it. It is also proved that this Seya is nothing but the Seya of Arahant Mahinda. These Hela commentaries were written in ancient Hela language.

Her two sisters, Sumanaa and Sunandaa too entered in to the Order at this same place. Later, they disrobed and got married to a prince called Bodhiguppthasays the Bodhi Vamsa.

Hiriwadunna is situated in between Rajagala and Anuradhapura. After the Parinibbana of these great Arahantstheir sacred relics were deposited in these Chaityas. By now, more than ten Chaityas of this type had been discovered from the archeological site in Rajagala. All these Chaityas are burrowed and destroyed by the treasure hunters. It is because these sacred relics were enshrined in golden caskets. Treasure hunters had destroyed the Chaityas in order to steal the gold.

Even to this present day, this pair of sacred footprint of the Buddha is still placed at the archeological site of Rajagala. This particular sacred Bodhi tree must be living still somewhere in the great jungle in Rajagala.

It was written in Mahavamsa in this manner as it was the history of this Helabima. Anyone who has a clear mind and can think with a balanced mind can understand this well. The umbrella shaped cave, known as Kudagala [20] cave today, situated among the other caves in Rajagala is an extraordinary creation to be seen at Rajagala.

Buddha Dharmaya

Any one goes to Rajagala today can observe this Sapthaparni cave with his own eyes, compare it with the description given in the Mahavamsa and understand the truth. All these information are found in Mahavamsa written in Lanka. It is because all these incidents were relevant to this Helabima.

It is only the hard core followers of false ideas, Michaa Drushtikawould still try to pass these true incidents occurred in this Helabima to India. A huge rock stretched over acres is situated to the eastern border of the archeological site of Rajagala. Any one goes there can observe this even to this date.
