    Background: BUDDHISTS IN CEYLON CELEBRATED A MEMORABLE DAY WHEN SANGA RAJA - KING OF BUDDHIST PRIESTS - ARRIVED IN THE CAPITAL, COLOMBO, LAST SATURDAY FOR A TWO-DAY VISIT. SANGA RAJA, FROM THAILAND, WAS GREETED BY A HUGE CROWD AT COLOMBO AIRPORT WHERE HE WAS OFFICIALLY WELCOMED BY CEYLON'S GOVERNOR-GENERAL, MR. WILLIAM GOPALAWALLA.

    CEYLON IS PREDOMINANTLY A BUDDHIST COUNTRY AND IS PROUD OF POSSESSING ONE OF THE RELICS OF BUDDHA - A TOOTH KEPT IN A GOLDEN CASKET IN THE TEMPLE OF THE TREES.

    SANGA RAJA WAS GIVEN AN ENTHUSIASTIC WELCOME WHEN HE ARRIVED IN COLOMBO AND TRADITIONAL DANCERS WERE AMONG THOSE WAITING TO GREET HIM. IN A SHORT SPEECH TO THE CROWDS, SANGA RAJA WISHED THE PEOPLE OF CEYLON PEACE AND PROSPERITY IN THE NAKE OF BUDDHA.
