      RE” BBS’s Gnanasara, Accused Of Hate Crimes, Part Of State Vesak Celebrations

      “Buddhist monk Galagoda Atte Gnanasara, the main personality associated with the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has been accorded pride of place in a religious ceremony that was part of the State Vesak celebrations.”

      Let’s call a spade a spade. Corrected reporting. In journalism, truth is a process.

      Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” monk Galagoda Atte Gnanasara, the main personality associated with the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has been accorded pride of place in a religious ceremony that was part of the State Vesak celebrations..

      What is Buddhism? What is Para-Sinhala Buddhism? In what way are they different?

        All the more it shows how the state is playing the STATE TERRORISM activities through these criminals, donning a yellow robe as a cover of protection. The system is Fascistic. No matter who comes to power, the agenda will be the same…. Sinhala Only agenda is an evil agenda similar to the one enforced by the Hitler….Nazism and Buddhism have been mixed to give the variety “Sinhala Buddhist Supremacist” ideology.

      This man in robes would most fit to the hang man if Ellumgaha would have to the case in next days in controlling sky rocketed high crimes.

      But the rulers have the close hand with the man s behavours. Lately the pseudo monk had showed up himself in a meeting held in Japan for the visit of Mr Sirisena how come the bugger to have been part of that meeting if everything should not have been a pre-program of Sirisena. WHo has the leader been fooling today ?

        Is Sri Lanka going on the path of those Burmese thugs who massacred innocent women, children and men just because they followed a different religion?. All in the name of Buddhism. Thugs under the cover of a yellow robe are taking advantage of gullible people. There is nothing called Sinhala people, an entity that cannot be defined. There is of course a language by that name, but not people . Who is a so called Sinhalaya? A person who speak Sinhala? Then some Chinese also can speak Sinhala or there are so called Sinhalaya who can not speak the language. For the good of the country shed all these chauvinistic rif raf and let us all call ourselves Sri Lankan as a people belonging to that country.

      How can a man behave so different ?

      So it is the best way to keep GRASS EATING majority under their OUTFIT.

      In Aluthgama and other places the bugger had been behaving like a bull in porcelan house.

      Barbarians of Rajapakshe nature abuse it to the core as he did it with the state funds and srilanken airline.

      So PINTBATH uras hidden in SIVURA just thugs or eunachs or various kinds of criminals.

      This BBS aggressive gorilla has proved it to the nation and world not once but dozen of his previous brutal acts.

      But THEY CAN ROAM within it, since no law would be exercised within that …. COVER is read as a monk, but the guy is BRUTAL man not even good enough allow human association.

      If one doctoral or master student would be asked to study how his crimes have spread and made people become hateful ones – will come out everything.
      The kind of studies are being done on the west, but BALLIGE puthas filled srilanka would not give any chance to go for it.

        “Lanken buddhism – so called sinhala buddhism has become to the word to date.”

        Para-Sinhala “Buddhists” have redefined Buddhism, as Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhism, that follows Mara, similar to the way Wahhabi-Salafis, ISIS and its clones have redefined Islam, that follows, Satan, so that they can kill Sufis, Shia, Ahmedia and others and go to heaven, get 72 virgins (with 72 mother in laws)

      There is a saying in vernacular – ABA KAWA MINISAGE MOLAYA DANIYI – one who spiced mustards only feels it… like that… so the same theory is valid to Rajapakshe rascals, To date, they have been able to live with impunity regardless of the size of the high crimes they deliberately perpetrated.
      There had been investigations where ONE Rajapakshe had been saying all day light lies to protect where they were blessed with that huge amount of funds.
      Then again the palace built by MOST abusive one another Rajapakshe in Gampaha to bury in the carpet.
      Then again, Jaliya W who was appointed Ambassardor to the US though with nothing like such credentials, he was NOT better to even appoint as the road sweeper- cleaning man, but Rajapakshe never though the consequences of having appointed the kind of men. In the same time, SRILANKEN AMERICAN did not even focus on that …but the bugger relative of Rajapakshe has already transfered billions of lanken rupes into his own account
      Then again SRILANKEN airline was Rajapakshes air taxi… today, it is grounded as no other airlines.
      All in all, the wastage made by Rajapakshes are billions of US dollars.
      Even today Ballige puthas to stay not caught is the wonder.
      Wonder that the world should finally focus today than tomorrow.

    They just make efforts to keep it under control, not focusing on the crimes committed by the abusive monk.

    This like making effoets to heal the wound not focusing on the etiology of the health problem.

    This has been the nature of Mr Sirisena, even today, he has not appointed Field Master Fonseka as the minister for law and order.
    What a country ? This country both politicians and people are both idiotic.

      “This has been the nature of Mr Sirisena,”

      Perhaps Sirisena is devising similar strategy to “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.” – Sun Tzu or is it Michael Corleone (Godfather).

      Doesn’t this very act show Sirisena is Sinhala/Buddhist who has nothing to do with Buddhism?

      Sinhala/Buddhists believe Christians and Muslims are bent on destroying Sinhala/Buddhism. Now you know it is the Sinhala/Buddhists who are bent on destroying Buddhism.

          “SINHALA BUDDHISM has gone main stream in Lanka and he is the LEADER and face of SINHALA BUDDHISM.”

          Sinhala/Buddhism has gone past its initial objective, giving Sinhalese and Buddhists a common unique narrowly defined nationalistic political identity and it has now almost reached a point where the fascists are realigning under Sinhala/Buddhism.

          Now is the time for the Sinhalese and Buddhists to wake up and claim back their multiple identities.

          Sinhala/Buddhism failed miserably over the past 100 years. So will the Sinhala/Buddhist Fascism. However it will leave trail of immense destruction on the island. The ones who nurture it won’t live to see the scale.

    3) I will also put that man from Madakalapuwa . Mangalaramaya in Jail

    I will never allow Rajapakshes to stay leaving FAMILIES of Thadudeen and Lasantha in the manner they have been put today – today they both families have been facing punishments of tantalus. The torments they go through curse on us the entire people of this country.

        Problem is not having prima facie evidence on the mentioned cases.

        Problems is the hidden deals with former abusive familiy – how come EX JMO – Prof was not arrested ? Even if SAITM labs proved the bones and parts of murdered young player were caught in the act there ?

        You the men with no respect to the dead behave so as SINHALA BUDDHISTS; but we as just born buddhists would not.

        But abusive justice system is so porous so that Rajanos can stay without hurt by date.

        You are made responsible for any rascals to abuse the nation… since you guys see it differnet for your pitty gains taking games.

        Just imagine who on the earth, even if prima facie evidence is proved regarding that Gampa palace making of former most abusive sibling of Rajapakshe. But that was interpreted as if he did not buy it can you imagine ?

        And again THERE ARE PRIMA FACIE evidence regarding Jaliya W former Ambassador to have transfered over lacks of us doallars into his own account…. but the bugger stays scot free.

        We only talk about Arjuna Mahnedran… sure, we have to hunt AM, but he is no alone. We should get all the other men that are already in the country.

      hinnibabaseeya,

      “If I were the president of this country”

      See what Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka, the hero who defeated the separatist/terrorist, VP had to say about the “President”

      SF takes swipe at President.

      http://www.dailymirror.lk/article/SF-takes-swipe-at-President-149518.html

      Sustainable Development, Wildlife and Regional Development Minister, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka said yesterday that former president Chandrika Kumaratunga told him recently with tears in her eyes that she was unable to get an appointment to meet President Maithripala Sirisena for three months and could not contact him over the phone for two months.

      He said the President, who agreed to appoint him Law and Order minister, refused to do so later saying that some people including several DIGs and Buddhist monks opposed the move.

      When asked why the President who initially agreed to offer the ministry later changed his mind, the minister said it was a long story and explained what happened.

      “I asked if the President told the Prime Minister that several Buddhist monks had objected the post given to me. Then he admitted that he told it to the Premier. But he refused to disclose the names of the monks. He also said several government officials also asked him not to give me the ministry as I have difficulty getting Visas to some countries and I would be unable to attend events in abroad. I am not someone who goes abroad on public money. What he should have done was not to refuse me the ministry on that ground but to discuss with such countries and arrange me to get the visas,” he explained the matters behind him not getting the Law and Order Ministry and added that it was a sad reflection on Sri Lanka government if foreign influence plays a role when Cabinet Ministers are chosen.

      Addressing the media at his office yesterday, Minister Fonseka stressed that both leaders of the ‘Yahapalana Government’ President Siriena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe must take the full responsibility for the major electoral setback suffered by the government at the February Local Government polls.

        Amarasiri,

        you are dead right. At the begining we attacked your wording on Prez Sirisena.

        But now we get it – the man is a failure.

        If Late Rev Sobitha THero had been alive, he would have collapsed on the spot no tbeing able to digest the actions being practised by President Sirisena.

        He makes good statements but the gap between is sky -earth difference.

        Just lip services only. Why ? Lets come to the street to protest Mr Sirisena and his hidden agendas.

      They just enjoy the life thinking that is the only way them to enjoy their life. Buddhism ministry is sleeping

      This man Ghansara should be put in jail would have been the thing WHICH i FIND is timeworthy.
      Those who look at these issues, how can they trust lanken justice system is fair.

      How can they further think, war crimes to be investigated by local justice systems?
      Also the current rulers march to the manner their brutal predecessor did it.

      Pinbatha is now very close to EP of the country since he is back from Japan.
      Actually, all the high crimes commited by the bugger has now been buried under the carpet of Sirisena. All those crimes and their files are combined iwth that of Gota and Mahinda. All these are buried under the carpet of Sirisena.

    I read a “Fantastic” reporting today. A group of “Buddhist Monks” most of them are “High Priests” of Buddhist Temples, have made an announcement to the temples and people of the area to collect all the “Damaged Buddha Statues”(broken into pieces in their temples/homes) in order to have a “Religious Cremation”. This reporting came with all the pictures of the “Buddhist High Priests” followed by the “Lesser High” in a ritual file taking a walk round the “Fire Pit” covered with “saffron” cloth. The most noteworthy in the pictures were how the “Upasika/Upasiaka” gathered with clasped hands saluting the “DEAD”. Now you must be itching to find out where this happened. It was at BELIATTA in the South. The “Peoples’ representative there I suppose is a “Rajapakse” – the elder brother of MR – Mr. Chamal Rajapakse (correct me if I am wrong). What is the relevance of this “NEWS” to this “Rev. Ganasara” , you might ask. The relevance is: Among a LARGE CROWD of “IMBECILES” ; any one or more who could show “Stamina” and “Strength” to be a “CROOK” will SUCCEED beyond limits. This “Rev. Ganasara” is ONE among MANY of those.

      Are they going to bury these “Damaged Buddha Statues” near mosques in the Islamic Republic of Kattankudy and later to be discovered by another set of enthusiastic amateur archaeologist, probably by another gang of monks?

      Is the purpose of the entire exercise to officially declare that particular area at a later date being “Sacred Sites” by saffron clad thugs, creating many mini Ayodhya disputes in some/all parts of this island?

    Theses Sin kele pagans will even make an Idol for this Venom: Galagodaya after his death and will start to worship… Days back , Sin kele woaman were beaten by police in a Vihara because they protested against kaavi aamaduru for his immoral practices.. Brave woman…!!

    Buddhism was formed after Siddartha’s death which is full of superstition and Myths . This film portrays the philosophy of Buddhism and its irrational and pathetic practices. Those who regard Buddhism as a road to peace and contentment should pay close attention to the truths described in this film.

    Great Gnanasara thero,

    Never be discouraged by the FALSE ACCUSATIONS from the enemies of Sinhala-Buddhists. Now, it is evident that so called damages to Muslim businesses are insurance scams. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! The good Muslims admire you secretly.

      There is no Buddhist-Central agency that oversees the whole of Buddhism to enforce the rules. Accordingly, Kamma will be his ultimate arbitrator. What he is displaying is sheer hypocrisy. A classy act of pretense, display of having a virtuous and moral character, false image of strong religious beliefs and principles, etc., pure and noble qualities that he really does not possess.

      You can’t solve a problem with the same paradigm that you use to create it with. Just to put it in context, you can’t solve greed using wealth, and you can’t solve desire using power. You can’t “save the world” from suffering, thru anti-social behavior that creates suffering. Paraphrasing Gandhi, be the change that you expect to see in the world. If you seek wealth and power, you are only feeding your cravings.

      The 5 precepts of Buddhism
      1. Avoid killing or harming living beings.
      2. Avoid stealing
      3. Avoid sexual misconduct
      4. Avoid lying
      5. Avoid intoxication

      Based on these 5 noble precepts and how his image matches up to it, can anyone call him a ‘Buddha-puthrayek’. If anyone does, they must be insane and not being genuinely honest.

    One cannot be a ‘God’ and a ‘Devil’. People are wasting their time listening to his sermons.

    What this means is that, in Sri Lanka, No Law can touch you if you are either a politician or a Buddhist monk of Gnanasara type. What progress after 70 years of independence!

    The politicians, for their own devious reasons, is making this saffron robed terrorist the face of Buddhism. What an embarrassment and shame. This disgraceful man should be kicked out of all temples and disrobed. He has the BBS are nothing but thugs and goons.

    Native Vedda: I did not mean what you “wish?” or “intended” to happen in mentioning that “Religious Cremation” staged. What I really wanted to communicate was to what level SOME of the “Buddhist Clergy and the “Laity” have fallen to and the mental status they are dragging themselves, thus distancing from those NOBLE TEACHINGS. These are the “CROWDS” that are used by that “MINORITY” -( “Ganasara” types) to create havoc and disgrace the entire Buddhist population. Isn’t it the DUTY and the TASK of the REAL BUDDHIST INTELLECTUALS to resurrect these (both Clergy & Laity) going stray and lead them on the correct PATH – the PATH shown by the BUDDHA? That was my intention and the way this “Minority” Trouble Makers” could easily be eliminated. As such, I am unable to answer your questions.

      You are coming around to accepting my “thesis”.
      I say it like “on your face” however you are coming around to the same point by beating around the bush.
      Thanks.

    His highness Gnanasara should not be in the State organised Vesak Celebrations.
    I simply fail to understand the current Rullers are pampering the Buddhist Monks who are VIOLENT characters.
    Bring in COUNCIL of High Priests to inquire into the misbehaving Monks and derive them and then to face the criminal Charges

    We desperately need a Council for the Buddhist Monks on similar lines to SLMC for Doctors to bring disciplinary actions on the misbehaving ones who commit HATE ;SEXUAL crimes etc.
    It should have the powers to derobe them. Police too need to take actions to prevent ethnic and religious wars in SL.

    That is the respect the Government has towards Lord Buddha. Allowing the ‘devil’ to to be involved in the preaching of the Lord. Lord Buddha must be really feeling uncomfortable waiting for the time this will all end!

      BBS..

      Ghansara is practising his hidden propensities.
      That is all. Either he is suffering from dysfunctional errection or own hidden sexual fantasies.
      Anyways, the profile should have lot to do with Testeserone mirror similar to that of Guanthanbe prisoners.

      This man if he opens his mouth, the harm could happen is harm to the innocient people.

    I listened to the entire clip and thanks for posting it. Even though I am not a Buddhist and even more so because I do not like organized religion, I still like to listen to Buddhist fellas’ Bana sermons.

    It’s so calming to the nerves and his voice is so serene and peaceful. And if you think deeply about every verse in today’s context you would understand how relevant it all is.

    What a pity. The dogs of Colombo telegraph could not find anything positive from this sermon.

      You should be an idiot. Just to get caught by a thuggish monk who has sucked the blood of muslim srilankens not once several dozens of times.
      He is double faced … day light migel at night daniel … this man in robes should be hung by his balls to all the crimes he has deliberately perpetrated…

      anyone who do all harm to the nation, but by reciting a kawiya to send the message which is totally contradictory… … Please read and open your eyes Rtd Lt Perera. You should be a matured person… why you fall to that levels. Get well soon.

    “I still like to listen to Buddhist fellas’ Bana sermons. It’s so calming to the nerves and voice is so serene and peaceful. And if you think deeply about every verse in today’s context you would understand how relevant it all is”., only on this count we are both in the same boat/
