Goiyo Me Bayya Putha- lullaby
I brought the relics
The relics which I cherished are going up
Please give me some of it
I offer the relics (Naga King at the relic offering festival of the Ruwanmeli Seya)
Oh farmer, this is your son
He will be a king tomorrow
Oh gods, this is my little son
He is sleeping well.
My dear son, you dream about sleeping in the arms of Mahaloku Devi. You hear the soft sound of Bo leaves of the Sri Maha Bodhiya shaking in the wind.
While chanting dharma, our Gautama Buddha sailed to Mahiyanganaya via Mahaweli River. Oh my dear son, you are smiling in dreams as you see Buddha sailing to Mahiyanganaya, aren’t you?
