BBS US Pictures: Sumptuous Feasts For BBS Monks

The picture below shows the Bodu Bala Sena Secretary General, a Buddhist monk Galagodaththe Gnanasara Thero  having a meal while he was in the US two weeks ago.

“Sumptuous feasts for BBS while bread and dhal for faithful” an ordinary citizen told Colombo Telegraph.

    The state policy of Rajapaksa presidency was to use Buddhism as a tool to amass wealth. It was the short cut to power, wealth and fame. No need to go to school. No need to learn. No need to go to universities. The more unlearned the better. A certain wise Sinhala Buddhist professor puts it nicely: “If Lord Buddha were to return to earth and sit the paper on Buddhism, He will fail.”
    Now, can anyone put it across better – the tragic fate of Buddhism?
    I have distanced myself from temples and the rogues living inside them.
    Likeminded people must form a network to stop the rot. We too are shamed. Others don’t respect us when these rogues hold the stage. I have experienced this personally. Especially when I travel abroad. We cannot realise our best potential.
