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. Last year Sri Lanka has announced plans to draw up new guidelines for donating food to the country’s Buddhist monks amid concerns about their weight and health. The Health ministry said the faithful, who offer alms as a religious tradition, tended to give food that was too high in fat and sugar and monks were developing preventable health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.“The Medical Research Institute has been asked to prepare menus that could be used for alms givings,” the ministry said in a statement, adding that the new guidelines would be issued next month.

    All monks appear well nourished though they are supposed to eat only once a day,at noon.
    A friend once remarked “Have you ever seen a thin priest” when 20 of them came to his home for a Dhanay in memory of his departed father.
    There is said to be no restriction to their eating meat – some say that The Buddha too ate meat.
    A few are reported to imbibe too.
    But they have lost the respect which they had fifty years ago when villagers used to prostrate themselves in front of monks even by the roadside.
    Their entry into businesses,astrology,land ownership,
    ethnic disputes & politics has lessened the respect they enjoyed.
    A few have been punished for sex crimes and fraud.
    Now the Budu Bala Sena has brought them disrespect.

      Thank you CT for uploading the latter photos. It demonstrates the generosity of the Dayakas. However they do not make me change my Mind that the BBS Monks are not following the Code of Conduct of the Vinaya Pitaka. They are not partaking of their meal in a Quiet and Mindful manner, as befits a Practising Monk.

      Thushara: What’s there to “understand the truth” with this apology for a monk? Don’t we remember the violent campaign of hate he instigated against Muslims, or the drunken actions that included filthy language when he was caught DUI by the police?

      There’s more “truth” about this shithead that will be revealed in due course.

    ” “Sumptuous feasts for BBS while bread and dhal for faithful” an ordinary citizen told Colombo Telegraph. “
    The above statement from the so called “ordinary citizen” was a lie. Many of us including myself was present for the opening of the new shrine and meditation room in the Indiana Buddhist temple in US (which is the only SL temple in the state). This was taken the day before that event took place. We were working day and night on the temple. Bread and dhal was there but that was for breakfast. Everyone including monks had bread and dhal for morning alms giving. Above was the lunch courtesy from chinese followers of buddhism. Again everyone (both monks and us) had the same above chinese lunch. And btw there was no meat in it.. But I think the rice had eggs.

    People, just because there is a picture “showing something” it doesn’t mean that picture “depicts something”. Do not jump in to conclusions. Its what creates conflict. I’m deeply sadened that almost all the comments here are being directed to a made up lie in an article whos author never bothered to research for truth before publishing his/her work.

        I’m a vegetarian. I usually dont eat somthing if I have a hint that there might be meat/fish/eggs in it. It is wrong for me to to say there “was” eggs in it… thats y i said I “think” eggs was in it.

          I almost forgot to add… incase if you are wondering how come I “thought” that there was eggs in it, try to see if you can get hold of a fried rice made by “real chinese ppl”. They cut lettuce/cabbage so small in a way that when fried they look like fried eggs. and the variety of sources they use hide the smell of eggs if it was there…

            Saminda: Have you any idea (being in the USA) of the horrible behaviour of the hypocritical fake monk called Galagodaththe Gnanasara? If not, do a little research and learn about this violent man.

            Why do you guys encourage and respect thugs like these who use the robes and the Buddha’s name to conduct their violent activities?

            Maybe you should learn more about the teachings of the Buddha so you could learn to identify these frauds and not encourage them.

        hmm… We had our lunches way after we gave the alms giving of the monks… Infact it was after 3-4pm some of us even had our lunches. I hope that cleared up your comment if it is what you meant… :)

        Let me make one thing clear to everyone… We at the temple do not care about any organization or society… We dont follow anyone’s propaganda… We were not there to raise voice against anything… It doesn’t matter to me and most of the people there if some one called BBS was there or not… Our intentions were wellness of our spiritual minds. Buddhism is not about looking at other ppl’s affairs or judging other people. I’m sure anyone who follows buddhism knows what it really is about. I only put a comment just to correct the lie that was posted here in this site. No white washing or bad mouthing was intended.
        I’m not going to visit this page again to reply or read any comments because I made my point already and anyone who agrees will have enough sense to find out the truth by themselves. If anyone disagrees… well, its still not the end of the world… :)

    If you believe that man was created, then he was created with a tongue that can taste variety and sexual organs. If you believe in evolution, then man acquired these because there was a need for it. Either way if it’s unfair to ever thing that a man can be exempt from good food or sex.

    I am not a fan of the BBS but every human being has the right to eat a good meal.

    A small side note, I completely disagree with the logic behind clergymen not having good food and not marrying. This lead to unfulfilled basic needs which leads to extreme behavior and hatred.

    Jay Chambers, are you dyslexic? If you read my comment slowly at a pace which you can understand you will realise that I did not say that is a scrumptious meal. I comment on the fact THAT YOU THINK THIS IS A SCRUMPTIOUS MEAL FOR THIRD WORLD PEOPLE. If you care to read you own comment, in the second paragraph of your original comment you say “I feel extremely sad for the Third World when I realize that food is still such a major issue to the point that it is being pointed out in photos in this manner.” Your innuendo is that for “third world” people this is a scrumptious meal. Now if you care to read my comment further you will realise (or at least hope you do) that I claim this is not regarded as a feast in any Sri Lankan household.

    In typical fashion for someone who has no knowledge about other cultures, religions or traditions you have chosen to comment using the bit of knowledge you have. By the way Jay, the term “third world” is no longer used as is derogatory and demeaning to people in developing countries, which is the correct term. Further, you exposure to the developing world outside your home seem to the single visit to India. If you care to compare the development indices, including standard of living, literacy, income and everything else, you will realise Sri Lanka is way above India and all other neighboring nations. Therefore, whatever the poverty you saw in India does not exist in Sri Lanka. Better get some education before you comment on things that you don’t know, or is it a trait of your nationality?

    My comments are entirely on the manner in which this meal is taken as if these monks are enjoying a dinner party. Having meals at a table and handling their own food in this manner is conduct unbecoming for Buddhist priests. If they follow true Buddhist precepts they should be sitting on the floor and waiting for the “dayakayo” (the lay Buddhist) to serve the meals on their plates. This is important because the act of serving a Buddhist priest is supposed to give person serving “merits” that will accumulate towards obtaining “nibbana.” This is why everyone who comes to a “dana” is encouraged to participate in serving the priests.

    My point is monks who are this well fed, and break all noble precept that have been practiced for thousands of years, claim to be the true protectors of Buddhism. The greatest threat to Buddhism is the enemy within by monks like this.

    Hope you are bit wiser now.

    These pics are from the opening ceremony and overnight pirith chanting of the new shrine room at IndianaBuddhist Viharaya. This event had nothing to do with BBS. This temple is situated in an area where not many Sri Lankans live, and many non-Sri Lankans participate in the events of the temple, specially for the meditation classes. This Dhane is probably offered by some non-Sri Lankan devotees of the temple. I highly doubt it is Chicken Buriyani. Altogether there were about 50 monks from all over the US for this event.

    AFAIK no BBS related propaganda happened in this event. I was there on the second day and talked with people who were there on the previous day as well. If such a thing happened, I would have been among the *first to walk out* and many who were their would have done the same.

    This is not a luxury temple. The monks live through many hardships and does a great service to the community. Building of this new Shrine room was a great achievement for the temple and it’s sad to see both BBS and anti-BBS using photos of this event for their propaganda.

    Just for the record, I despise BBS and personally wish BBS monks didn’t come to this event. However, I’m equally appalled to see that anti-BBS crowd is also beginning the adopt the cheap propaganda methods of BBS and the likes..

      I understand you sentiments, Thilina. But, if BBS claiming to be Sinhala Buddhists monks (the experts on Buddhism) can preach hate, what can you expect from LAYMEN BUDDHISTS?

      BBS should be teaching love and compassion, isn’t it? And, we treat these yellow-robed thugs as Guest of Honors, and then they go back to SL to be Guests of Horrors.

      BBS had the power to show compassion or hate, and they choose to show hate. Lets not go down the same path where Burma Buddhists are going and give them a hero’s welcome. It gives them a wrong message.

        Goraka, I’m well aware of the harm BBS doing in our country and I despise them & their brainwashed followers. But I don’t see it as a reason for us to get down to their level of slander, hate speech and stereotyping.. Have a look at the comments in this page and I feel very sad..

        BTW AFAIK BBS monks were not guest of honors of this event. I’m sure 90% of the people who were present at the event didn’t even know that these monks were from BBS. Once again, no BBS propaganda happened in this event. They were part of around 50 monks who came to the event.

    When these things are exposed some devoted? Buddhists are getting tempted. As far as we know, a layman before offering arms to Buddhist monks, approaches them and ask them what items should be included into their meal. Then the monks give him a list. List will include among other things: First Beef, then chicken, followed by mutton, fish, egg sometimes pork ( if it is in Wattala area or inUS)……..and finally araku or Kasippu. This is what my Buddhist friend told me about SOME of their monks menu.

    Hi Saminda,

    I believe that you are a good man and you gave alms to Sangha, not doing any background checks on people on robs.If you have given the same lunch or even a better one to any other monk non of the readers would not be bothered. But in this instance you should know that these people on robs are spreading hatred and illwill in Sri Lanka against all other communities.Anyone listening to their arrogant speaches will know that this is not Buddhism they are preaching.As you know even Alms giving you get more merits by offering it to people who are wise and well deciplined and following the path of Buddha. But here you have given it to some thugs in robs. Anyway finally if you have done with good intentions, I hope you will not collect bad Kamma on account of this alms giving.

    What the Buddha Said About Eating Meat

    Ajahn Brahmavamso

    Since the very beginning of Buddhism over 2500 years ago, Buddhist monks and nuns have depended on almsfood. They were, and still are, prohibited from growing their own food, storing their own provisions or cooking their own meals. Instead, every morning they would make their day’s meal out of whatever was freely given to them by lay supporters. Whether it was rich food or coarse food, delicious or awful tasting it was to be accepted with gratitude and eaten regarding it as medicine. The Buddha laid down several rules forbidding monks from asking for the food that they liked. As a result, they would receive just the sort of meals that ordinary people ate – and that was often meat.

    Once, a rich and influential general by the name of Siha (meaning ‘Lion’) went to visit the Buddha. Siha had been a famous lay supporter of the Jain monks but he was so impressed and inspired by the Teachings he heard from the Buddha that he took refuge in the Triple Gem (i.e. he became a Buddhist). General Siha then invited the Buddha, together with the large number of monks accompanying Him, to a meal at his house in the city the following morning. In preparation for the meal, Siha told one of his servants to buy some meat from the market for the feast. When the Jain monks heard of their erstwhile patron’s conversion to Buddhism and the meal that he was preparing for the Buddha and the monks, they were somewhat peeved:

    “Now at the time many Niganthas (Jain monks), waving their arms, were moaning from carriage road to carriage road, from cross road to cross road in the city: ‘Today a fat beast, killed by Siha the general, is made into a meal for the recluse Gotama (the Buddha), the recluse Gotama makes use of this meat knowing that it was killed on purpose for him, that the deed was done for his sake’…” [1].

    Siha was making the ethical distinction between buying meat already prepared for sale and ordering a certain animal to be killed, a distinction which is not obvious to many westerners but which recurs throughout the Buddha’s own teachings. Then, to clarify the position on meat eating to the monks, the Buddha said:

    “Monks, I allow you fish and meat that are quite pure in three respects: if they are not seen, heard or suspected to have been killed on purpose for a monk. But, you should not knowingly make use of meat killed on purpose for you.” [2]

    There are many places in the Buddhist scriptures which tell of the Buddha and his monks being offered meat and eating it. One of the most interesting of these passages occurs in the introductory story to a totally unrelated rule (Nissaggiya Pacittiya 5) and the observation that the meat is purely incidental to the main theme of the story emphasizes the authenticity of the passage:

    Uppalavanna (meaning ‘she of the lotus-like complexion’) was one of the two chief female disciples of the Buddha. She was ordained as a nun while still a young woman and soon became fully enlightened. As well as being an arahant (enlightened) she also possessed various psychic powers to the extent that the Buddha declared her to be foremost among all the women in this field. Once, while Uppalavanna was meditating alone in the afternoon in the ‘Blind-Men’s Grove’, a secluded forest outside of the city of Savatthi, some thieves passed by. The thieves had just stolen a cow, butchered it and were escaping with the meat. Seeing the composed and serene nun, the chief of the thieves quickly put some of the meat in a leaf-bag and left it for her. Uppalavanna picked up the meat and resolved to give it to the Buddha. Early next morning, having had the meat prepared, she rose into the air and flew to where the Buddha was staying, in the Bamboo Grove outside of Rajagaha, over 200 kilometres as the crow (or nun?) flies! Though there is no specific mention of the Buddha actually consuming this meat, obviously a nun of such high attainments would certainly have known what the Buddha ate.

    However there are some meats which are specifically prohibited for monks to eat: human meat, for obvious reasons; meat from elephants and horses as these were then considered royal animals; dog meat – as this was considered by ordinary people to be disgusting; and meat from snakes, lions, tigers, panthers, bears and hyenas – because one who had just eaten the flesh of such dangerous jungle animals was thought to give forth such a smell as to draw forth revenge from the same species!

    Towards the end of the Buddha’s life, his cousin Devadatta attempted to usurp the leadership of the Order of monks. In order to win support from other monks, Devadatta tried to be more strict than the Buddha and show Him up as indulgent. Devadatta proposed to the Buddha that all the monks should henceforth be vegetarians. The Buddha refused and repeated once again the regulation that he had established years before, that monks and nuns may eat fish or meat as long as it is not from an animal whose meat is specifically forbidden, and as long as they had no reason to believe that the animal was slaughtered specifically for them.

    The Vinaya, then, is quite clear on this matter. Monks and nuns may eat meat. Even the Buddha ate meat. Unfortunately, meat eating is often seen by westerners as an indulgence on the part of the monks. Nothing could be further from the truth – I was a strict vegetarian for three years before I became a monk. In my first years as a monk in North-East Thailand, when I bravely faced many a meal of sticky rice and boiled frog (the whole body bones and all), or rubbery snails, red-ant curry or fried grasshoppers – I would have given ANYTHING to be a vegetarian again! On my first Christmas in N.E. Thailand an American came to visit the monastery a week or so before the 25th. It seemed too good to be true, he had a turkey farm and yes, he quickly understood how we lived and promised us a turkey for Christmas. He said that he would choose a nice fat one especially for us… and my heart sank. We cannot accept meat knowing it was killed especially for monks. We refused his offer. So I had to settle for part of the villager’s meal – frogs again.

    Monks may not exercise choice when it comes to food and that is much harder than being a vegetarian. Nonetheless, we may encourage vegetarianism and if our lay supporters brought only vegetarian food and no meat, well… monks may not complain either!

      People, what is this nonsense?

      Eating meat is WRONG.

      It doesn’t depend on what meat you eat, who did the killing, for what purpose or whether you are a monk or a layperson.

      Buddha said, don’t believe anything because so and so says Buddha said so or that its written somewhere. He wanted us to think for ourselves and decide what is right and wrong.

      Killing an animal is wrong because the animal like us is a conscious being. If we don’t like being killed, pain and suffering, so is that animal. Whether the animal is an elephant or a little fish, or whether it is a dairy cow or a goat, makes no difference. Most Hindu’s don’t eat beef but eat goat. Muslims don’t eat pork but eat everything halal. These habits have no basis under Buddhism.

      Further, whether you do the dirty deed yourself or whether you get someone else to do it or whether you encourage others to do it directly or indirectly, what is bad is bad. There is no escaping from that.

      By eating meat, you encourage others to slaughter animals. THE BUTCHERS KILL animals for ALL THOSE WHO WILL BE EATING THEIR MEAT. So its wrong, whether one cooked the meat himself or whether he accepted what was prepared by someone else. If a monk or anyone for that matter eats meat, there is no market on earth where you can buy it and say oh it was not killed for me so my hands are clean! There is no sanitation process (halal) in Buddhism where one can get around this or god to whom that you can appeal for pardon later.

      We should not use bed time stories to identify Buddhists principles. Rather we should use principles to put bed time stories in proper perspective. Buddhist literature is littered with conveniences made by monks which have no resonance with Buddhists fundamentals. Now should we be surprised? Not at all.

      If its difficult to live by these fundamentals due to our own weaknesses let’s try to do the best we can, acknowledge our wrongs and not be overly critical of others for not doing so. However, lets not be hypocrites and make a mockery of a beautiful and consistent doctrine for our convince.

        Navin,

        I totally agree with you. Even though I myself eat meat I know it is wrong simply because no living being would consent to be killed for being eaten by some other being! Dilini’s seem to be a pragmatic approach where both Buddhist ideals and worldly realities optimally converged. I have heard there are totally vegetarian sections in Indian culture and I invite those who have researched on those societies to publish their findings with regard to their health, diseases, lifespans, personalities etc. and the medical/biological opinions regarding vegetarianism vs omnivorous diets. The fact that a true Buddhist cannot possibly eat meat is very clear when the Buddhist fundamental concept of “ahimsa” (not hurting others) is understood. You cannot obtain meat without killing and therefore hurting an animal! Whatever convenience theories exist espousing as the word of Buddha they all contradict the fundamental truths of this beautiful doctrine. Humanity need to draw knowledge, wisdom, experience and guidance from those vegetarian societies in the world to be free from killing animals for food which I do not know how practical but it is worth trying, trying to evolve societies and a humanity who would want to create delicious and nutritious foods based on non-meat origin. If someone or a group does that it will be ever most meritorious act towards non-violence that has been ever undertaken on this earth!

    Its time for me to bid good bye to this forum, at least for a few more weeks. I have to travel to several US States on business and will not be able to follow through with the discussions. If anyone here had followed my contributions I feel it is only fair to let them know why I would fall silent temporarily.

    In parting I would like to say a few things:

    Thushara: you did a wonderful fact based addition to this discussion. You literally forced CT to finally tell the whole truth, at least pictorially. Your contribution will be highly appreciated by all those who are blessed to have Buddhist monks and welcome them to our midst in America.

    Those who try to pin down monks based on posture, what they eat, etc.: get real guys! We value highly the words of compassion from Buddha, and in my case, above all else, the serenity his followers, the Buddhist monks, bring with them. It would be impossible for the monks to not adjust to circumstances whether in partaking in a meal, etc.If that bothers orthodox folks, that is too bad.

    I wish you all well. And the Indiana temple is a wonderful abode of compassion and caring. I will visit the temple soon, have not had a chance for a long time to visit. And I sincerely hope more and more Lakan and other monks will come and visit us and share Buddha’s message of comppassion like the recent visiting monks did.

    Happiness to all!

      Jay Chambers, you say:

      “..If they were anywhere near where I live I would offer them a much better meal.

      Now, I have to maintain that only in a Third World forum would this even be a subject for discussion. In America we never talk about ones salary, what one eats (except from a dieting standpoint),..

      Its time for me to bid good bye to this forum, at least for a few more weeks. I have to travel to several US States on business and will not be able to follow through with the discussions. If anyone here had followed my contributions I feel it is only fair to let them know why I would fall silent temporarily.”

      “… If anyone here had followed my contributions..” Contributions??? What contributions are you talking about? Blind faith and naïve collusion with sacrilegious and rogue and criminal monks do not in any way contribute to true religion whether it is Buddhism or any other one! Have you ever read the case file of the bear-like Galagodaya where he has been convicted for drunken driving, hit and run, obstructing law enforcement authorities etc.? If not please visit lankaenews and read it! Do you know what these fake monks have done during the past few weeks in Sri Lanka engulfing Sri Lanka in racist, faith-violent, nationalist, violent, hate-mongering nefarious activities throughout the country? Don’t you know that Gotabaya Rajapaksha and MR are behind them manipulating them for ulterior ends? How on earth do you try to deform Buddhism by moronically advocating that with the passage of time eating habits of monks must change too! You are a mutt out of the top drawer! You seem to downgrade even Lord Buddha! I am sure after your business tour you will criticize Buddha for not establishing the practice of monks preparing their own meals instead of begging for it even from the beggars! How on earth do you think this is Buddhist? How on earth do you offer alms to these criminals? You are a promoter and a supporter of evil rather than Buddhist values and therefore it is better people like you do not adulterate these fora!

    Those who wish to see Allah to believe in Him and those who say He doesn’t exist because they can’t see Him, should step out of their perception that Allah is like one of those they worship. Allah is the Creator of all, including mankind. He is not one of a mankind. Allah created man among many other animals, reptiles, birds, fish, trees, mountains, valleys, the atmosphere, the skies, the earth, the other planets, the sun (closest star), other stars and probably their planets, the milky way that we live in, the other mily way many millions and billions of light years away. He set the planet to rotate around its own axis at a certain controlled speed so that we have day and night as planned by Him. He set the planets to rotate around the sun, so that we can measure time in terms of seconds, minutes, days. He created the moon so that we can measure months and years. He created science and educated his creation appropriately so that they could also survive by themselves. He made one a food for another. He made oxygen as a means for our survival and made us dependent on it. We are so minute in comparison to his creation. How can we see Allah ? He is so Magnificent, Powerful, Loving etc etc. As a guide he made some amongst us prophets and revealed His guidance through them. He revealed to us the Revelations (original ones) so that we can be guided. Up to date, not one mistake is found in the Quran. The Quran is researched extensively today to come up with new innovations and explanations to what is going around. So my advice is for those who really want to know the truth, to look at the Quran with an open mind. It will certainly guide you. Allah is not a creation to be visible. He is the Creator of All including mankind. The eyes through which we want to see Him was also given to us by Allah.

      After reading your endless list of what Allah has done, several questions came to my mind: To begin with, who created Allah? How do you know this Allah thing created what you said? Who saw him doing these, who are witnesses? What proof do you have? If as you say Allah did these things then he is also responsible for creating a war criminal like Mahinda Rajapaksha, a psychopath like Pirabaharan, a kewattaya like Wimal Veerawansa, a mass murderer like Hitler! Then he must take the responsibility for the WW1,2, the endless suffering of the human beings, the poverty, hunger, starvation, ignorance, suffering, hate, jealousy, death, diseases, the pests, the limited resources, you are tall, I am short, you are beautiful, I am not, you name it and it is there! So this Allah is a terrible mischief maker! He gave oil only to Arab countries and not to others! People, children in African countries are dying in hunger and starvation while some in some other countries have a surplus of food! In short this Allah is a terribly unskilled amateurish bungler and must stand for a trial in front of all humanity and all animals for causing all these problems for all living things! Do you want to know the truth about Allah? Then read on. There is a small kid in my neighborhood and his hero is his father. And like you he too believes his father is a super hero doing all kinds of super manly things! But since he is a kid we do not care about what he says. The truth about Allah is that this superstition has been created by superstitious people like you! It is a myth! No bugger created this earth or anything on it. No knows it either. But since no one knows it you fools come to fill the gap in knowledge! Your silly nonsense nobody would believe except born mutts like you! Who the hell is this Allah anyway who cannot give me even a loaf of bread? Who cares about this bundle of impotent mythology! You, I created two children and I can prove it with evidence! Now tell me with proofs whether your Allah could create even a worm or an ant that is found in abundance everywhere!

    Dogmatic beliefs on Dogmatic Allah… Who cares this humbugger. What can he do anywhere in the world? Where was this rubbish Allah-Pallay when so-called Allah followers like ASADAM Ahusen and others were killed in daylight? Cowdung is filled up in every Muslims head? No brain, No creative, destructive primitive believers ……..

    I just had a few ideas I thought I would share:

    1. The photos are trying to convince people to believe that the monks are eating chicken biriyani/pork or some other lame thing. Before just blindly believing these claims/rumors please think for yourselves! Can you really see any chicken here?! Could this just be vegetable biriyani?

    2. As anyone who has prepared an alms giving knows, that we prepare our best( yes also least healthiest) food to offer for the monks). It doesn’t have to be in the US , this happens in Sri Lanka as well. Just because we see a “sumptuous feast” being served to the monks are we really blaming the monks for eating this? After all last time I gave an alms giving, no monk came and gave me a menu on what to serve, they just eat what they are served. In other extreme cases I know of many monks who don’t get even a basic one meal a day.

    3. When I see so many people sharing this link of monks eating at a Dhanaya saying they are using fork and knives etc, I find it very saddening the extent people go to try to disrupt the peace. The Halal issue was a different agenda and is hopefully behind us, so why are we trying to spread false rumors saying this monk was drunk or this girl was asked to remove her Hijaab and trying our best to disrupt the peace?!

    Its time for all races and religions to unite at least now, work together and build our home country! Maybe we can talk about more important things like the rising cost of living and trying to solve it. Lets develop Lanka!!!

    It is sobering to see that the lewd comments here come from the very same people who criticise and complaint of religious bigotry, prejudice and small mindedness.

    As a Christin in the middle of Buddhist-Muslim issue, can I point to the critics here to learn Matthew 7:3 which says, “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

    Truth Seeker,

    May be what we have are planks, but neither have we made an issue out of nothing like the Barbeque Balu Sena have been doing for some time now! This BBS is a wholly unholy concoct living doing everything contrary to Buddhism! That is exactly why everybody is hitting them!

    There’s a saying that once you get used to eat from a Good and tasty Hotel, you always prefer to go there.

    Therefore in future Sri Lanka’s giving Dana to these Buddhist clergy, they would definitely prefer Chinese Food, KFC, Barbeque meat, hamburgers and Pizza.

    it’s high time the Citizen think about this new Buddhist clergy Dana Menu when they give next Dana.

    Hey you Sri Lankan Sinhalayo , do not touch Muslim Food. But that law is not for us. We thrive on Muslim food. We the Bodu Bala Sena, bloom and flourish on Muslim Halal food.
