Clan of Sinhala

© Lori Lappin, the Witch of WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY®


A daughter of the the Clan of Sinhala (Heartblood of Lions), this South Asian component of my ancestry derives from the Dutch and British colonists of Ceylon on the island of Sri Lanka. The Ceylon colonists linking to my ancestral genetic populations were of Burgher, Sinhalese, Portuguese-Jewish, German, British, Danish, Swedish and Austrian descent. The South Asian native population of this group was Sinhalese. The Sinhalese are an Indo-Aryan ethnic group native to the island of Sri Lanka, led there by Prince Vijaya in 543 BCE. Prince Vijaya is known in the Jataka Tales and depicted in the Ajanta Cave Paintings as Sinhala. Theravada Buddhists, this branch of Buddhism as practiced by the Sinhalese promotes the concept of vibhajjavāda ("teaching of analysis"), a concept which embodies the idea that insight and Nirvana are attained through the way of analyzing of one's own experience.

The spirit of Robin Hood exemplifies the spirit of Prince Vijaya, who founded my ancestral clan, the Clan of Sinhala.

"And when they seek to oppress you, and when they try to destroy you,
Rise and rise again and again, like the Phoenix from the ashes
Until the lambs have become lions."
— Maitreya The Friend of All Souls, The Holy Book of Destiny
