Can I bring seeds to Sri Lanka on air plane ?

I am planning to visit my mum in Sri lanka. My mother likes gardening and she has requested me to bring few vegetable seeds and flower seeds when I visit her. I am going from Canada by air and I can easily buy vegetable and flower seeds here in Canada which are very good.
I am sure my mum will like to grow them and she will have a good harvest. But I just heard that there are regulations on importing seeds and other live plants and animals to Sri Lanka.
I want to know the exact information in this regard as I do not want to run into unnecessary troubles at the air port.

    Plant and plants products (Seeds) are restricted items to Sri Lanka. You will at least have to declare them at the custom.

  2. Samson says:

    Yes it is restricted item and they usually do not allow. Even people who import plants and seeds have to get a special permission. Also, they are very strict on GM (Genetically modified) plants.

Try Dr. Shanez Fernando at Lanka Hospitals. Dr. Piyanjali de Soyza (recommended by admin) is also good.

Try Dr. Shanez Fernando, clinical psychologist at Lanka Hospitals. She has a holistic approach to such matters. Also, try listening to Byron Katie on You Tube. She has a simple method of self inquiry that could help you challenge your problem thoughts.

Dear Malik,

I assume your two drugs are lithium and venlafaxine. I, too, was prescribed these drugs at various times. Doctors kept changing my medication too, over several years. They certainly helped while I took them. But, like you, I came to the realization that the problem is one of my own attitude to life, or my ‘thinking patterns’.

It’s great that you mention meditation and surrender. I’ve also had a difficult childhood, and this has affected my mentality in many ways. Yet, as suggested by my psychologist Dr. Shanez Fernando (I highly recommend her by the way), I started to explore a more spiritual approach. This has helped me take a fresh look at my thought patterns that caused me to become so unhappy. As a result, I haven’t needed medication in over 4 years, and I haven’t needed to attend any other kind of formal therapy either.

If you wish to tail-off the drugs and stop them, I’d still suggest you speak to a qualified psychiatrist on how to do so. You could also discuss it with someone like Dr. Shanez (who is a psychologist, not a psychiatrist), who is sympathetic to such situations. It’s dangerous to stop these arbitrarily. I can tell you this because, in addition to being an ex-patient, I’m also medically trained. However, I agree with you that most psychiatrists don’t have a holistic approach, that they don’t look at the big picture. Shanez is the only exception I can think of.

Since you’re interested in exploring a more spiritual lifestyle, might I suggest this 5 part series. http://www.holographicuniverseworkshops.com/
Although the ‘quantum physics’ angle may freak some people out, the presentations have been made so that even an average Joe could understand. It might help you develop your understanding that all our problems are really a product of our own imaginations.

Also, you could try listening to Byron Katie on You Tube. She has a simple, practical method of helping people challenge their problematic thoughts.

Wish you the best, brother. If you have any more questions, please write back through this portal. I will check from time to time.
