Volume 2 deals with Rituals, Customs and Ceremonies associated with the Sacred Tooth Relic and the Temple from historical times, which still continue to be performed to this day. These rites, the legacy of over two thousand years of Buddhist worship, provide an unbroken lineage between the past and the present, and their continuation ensures a heritage for the future. Daily rites, weekly rites, monthly rites and yearly rites are dealt with in detail. Associated with the yearly rites is the Äsala Perahära, and this is described in full, with colour photographs to support the text. The Sacred Tooth Relic has played a major role in the political, social and religious life in the past, and it will continue to play the same vital role in the days ahead. Therefore these books are an important contribution to the knowledge of scholars of architecture, history, religion and the culture of Sri Lanka.
