Introducing Jinadasa

Meet  Jinadasa. He does not make the Thalaguli , but makes Buddha statues out of plaster of Paris. 
His workshop is a shed by the side of a paddy field .
There are rituals in this work , he tells me .  He bathes early morning and wears a white sarong.  He is a tee-totller . “වස් වදිනවා මහත්තයෝ “ he tells me (gets cursed). 
He confesses that he smokes . But he goes out in to the fields to do that, lest the Gods will see him in his unholy act.
