Kandy, a town of Ceylon, 74 miles N.E. of Colombo. It is situated on a wide plain near a small lake about 1,670 feet above the sea. The famous tooth of Buddha is preserved in a temple in the town.
“It is most profitable, it is blessed, to be always looking beyond second causes in all our trials and distresses, and to discern the Lord's hand, in infinite love and wisdom, appointing all. For this brings the soul into a state of resignation and tranquility at least, if not of holy Joy.”
–Robert Hawker, Poor Man’s Commentary, Psalm 17
