The date of marriage, one of the most important ceremonies in the life of a Sri Lankan Buddhist, is determined with the help of horoscopes, drawn up by astrologers. Poruwa Ceremony is the religious part of Buddhist marriage. Poruwa ceremony (a series of rituals conducted on the wedding day as the couple gets married) is a common marriage ritual among the Sinhalese irrespective of their geographical differences. During the Poruwa ceremony a set or a series of acts, rituals that are associated with religion, myth and magic take place. Before the introduction of the British Marriage Act (1870) the Poruwa Ceremony officially solemnized the marriage. The Poruwa ceremony has undergone so many changes over the generations. With the influence of the western tradition the wearing of the veil, the exchange of rings and the western dress can be seen. So, anyone who observes the Poruwa ceremony from a sociological or anthropological perspective would note that it has become a major ritual comprising of many minor rituals that have undergone timely changes.
