 Buddhism accounts for 70 percent of the Sri Lankan population. Buddhism was introduced into this Island during the reign of King Devanampiya tissa in the third century B.C. by the mission of Venerable Thera Mahinda.

Buddhism is about attaining enlightenment, maybe even nirvana, through such peaceful methods as meditation and yoga.
