Sri Lanka Holidays: 2,300 years ago, Sangamitta brought back her faith and a banyan tree cutting from India: this was the same tree beneath which Buddha attained awakening, and which Sangamitta subsequently planted in Anuradhapura. The tree continues to thrive, attended to night and day by a team of seven monks who care for it, and a crack team of 1,000 soldiers and policemen who protect it. Votive
lamps illuminate the sacred tree to a soundtrack of mantras chanted by devotees who believe that one day the venerable and venerated tree will return to the void where everything springs from.
