Guru Ajantha Mahantharachchi is the present Mohandiram of our tradition. He, protecting the Sinhalese Martial Art, is a young but he who speak with him for few minutes will feel as speaking to 100 years old ancient Sinhalese Person. He who is fully vegetarian, has started to practice this art from his grandfather when he was in 6 years old. He is a expert of Astrology, Native Medicine, Native Physiognomy System etc which are interconnected with Angam Art. He is dedicated for protecting and carry forward this great art which was protected by his forefathers as valued as their lives. This Ajantha Mahantharachchi who has sworn to protect this art is the only person who is traditionally practicing this art in Sri Lanka even if there are so many efforts for him to observe this tradition.

 

The hard practises he deserves when he was at the beginning of his learning of Angam Art and the advises given by his grand father who was his Angam Teacher as well, has done a great effort to protect this art to the future. He had to go to the forest and find herbs for himself by command of the teacher. This is because native medicine also was a part of this great art Angam. Also he had to prepare the paddy fields without using bulls for it hence grabbing coconut stumps by himself through the field for ploughing. Also he had to keep gunnies of paddy on his shoulder and run on dams of the paddy fields for physical training. All these old memories are refreshed with great respect for his teacher, grand father.

 

 

His main objective is to gain the position of this art to the where it should be just like the position of this art dedicated in the history of this great country.
