Serenity, now


beyond the grass at the feet
beyond the solitary tree
in dimensional trick dwarfing mountains
beyond valley, hill, valley and the furthest hill
is it a future that beckons,
or a past as unknown
is it the sun as the aged or young
is it late evening or early morn
are there lessons at every turn
or just one, just differently garbed
uttered gently, silently and in stillness?


Lenawara Raja Maha Vihara, located near Horana in the Kalutara District has a history that goes back at least as far as the reign of Parakramabahu VI.
