The state number is one of the most important numbers in Sri Lanka’s current social calendar. It has been considered a holy number for many generations, and it is seen as such in both Hinduism and Islam. This article will look at exactly why satta number is such an important and revered number throughout Sri Lanka’s religious history.
The state number is believed to be ten in Sri Lanka. It is also believed to be the twelves of all the planets, which are referred to as the heavenly spheres. The tenth planet is referred to as Mars, in Sri Lanka, and is seen as being a difficult planet to live on. It is populated by evil spirits that cause all sorts of negative things to happen, including disease. The tenth planet, Mars, is also the most distant planet from the sun, which is why people on the moon were believed to be immortal.
Thus, Mars was seen as something that could never be killed or harmed by anything that was living. Thus, the state number was also chosen to be the basis for the birth month of Sri Lanka. Every September, however, there is a festival in Sri Lanka that commemorates the completion of a century of peace between the Sri Lankan government and the Tamil rebels. The satta, which is also known as Dassapa, is a sadeetha, or an auspicious celebration, and is celebrated with great splendor and gaiety throughout the month of September. People in Sri Lanka celebrate the Dassapa state number on various different days throughout the year, but the most significant day on which all these happen is the Dassapa satta number six, on which the entire district of Idukki is named.
The sattaking festivities also mark the end of the Tamil month of August, which is when Dassapa satta numbers begin to increase. The actual satta celebration dates back to at least 800 years ago, and is marked by much feasting and great celebration. The main focus of the satta festivities is generally to honor and celebrate the God of War, who is Sri Lanka’s most venerated and respected divinity. Some people also choose to give away Dassapa coins, which are considered to be Sri Lankan currency, during the celebration. Another tradition that is linked with the satta number is the practice of visiting the many temples during the course of the month. These are all done in an effort to appease the deities and pray for their well-being and prosperity.
One of the most important things to remember about celebrating the satta, however, is not what you do on the actual day of Dassapa. Above all else, it’s what you don’t do that counts. On that day, all evil and bad luck must be swept away from the house and the family, and all good and positive energy must be channeled into making sure that the next state, Dassapa, goes off without a hitch. In other words, all evil doings must be put to an end. In this way, it’s a time to celebrate and pray for the success of the next state in a calm and serene environment.
Although there are many other celebrations and rituals that may vary from community to community, what is remembered above is the main event of the satta. It is considered a blessed occasion when the entire community comes together to pray for the successful future of the Sri Lankan people and nation. It is a time for giving thanks and pouring out wishes for a better tomorrow.
