A historical message poem written by an unknown author during the Kingdom of Kotte, Sri Lanka in 15th Century. The messenger of Gira Sandeshaya was a Parrot. The receiver was the God Natha. The Parrot was entrusted the task of making a plea to God Natha to protect the King Parakramabahu VI of Kotte and the entire Sri Lanka from the afflictions of enemies, pestilence and evil spirits. Throughout the tour of the messenger, from Sri Jayawardhanapura to Thotagamuwa, the poet aesthetically extols many places where the massager was requested to travel via. This is a mellifluous errand which is full of poetic excellence written in a religious and patriotic perspective. This book is an edition with descriptive notes for each poem that is useful for deeper understanding of poetic undertone.
