Dalada Wathura - Real Miracles Of Our Time

In 1818,while Sri Lanka was under British rule,(Sir Edward Mans) the Kandy Esala perahara was stopped after the civil war (Uva Wellassa karalla.Then there was a severe drought in Kandy and listning to lot of peoples pleading British ordered to restart Perahara after 10 years.During the Perahara a heavy rain started and this is called Dalada wathura.

The Diyawadana Nilame says that Dalada records prove that expositions have always resulted in downpours - brought upon by the thousands of monks praying on behalf of the nation. The rain known as 'Dalada Wathura' showers blessings on a nation that had suffered without a drop of rain, and nobody falls ill after getting drenched in it. 'It cleanses the body, mind and spirit- and we should also prepare spiritually to receive these blessings,' says the Diyawadana Nilame. With thousands of Buddhist clergy joining the chant of 'Devo Wassathu Kalena' to end the drought, it seems that the Dalada is quietly preparing to release showers of blessings.
