Sri Lanka is the oldest continually Buddhist country, Theravada Buddhism being the major religion in the island since its official introduction in the 2nd century BC by Venerable Mahinda, the son of the Emperor Ashoka of India during the reign of King Devanampiya- Tissa.

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