Educating Ms. Serasinghe On The Uniqueness Of Sinhala-Buddhism

Without any reservations I must concede that the Buddhist clowns must be reined in, as stated by Ms. Sharmini Serasinghe. In this survey of her version of Buddhism, I wish to state that I am ready to join her campaign this minute if the reining in of Buddhist clowns begins with her. Of course, it is not going to be an easy task because reining in the clowns of her type will be as difficult as removing the layers of paint from her face. By the look of it, she might have to buy the facial cleaners of an entire cosmetic store to get the multi-layers of paint above her neck removed to reveal her thick skin, warts and all.

The plastic look on her face extends to her arguments too. She excoriates other Buddhists who do not follow the ascetic standards she prescribes for their daily conduct. But why hasn’t she applied the identical Buddhist standards to determine her own conduct? The severity of her judgmental standards set for other Buddhists calls for critical evaluation because the validity of her commitments to Buddhist principles can be judged only by her practices and not by her censorious preaching. In taking a cynical view of the Buddhists in general she places herself on the side of those holier-than-thou arahats who adheres strictly to the pristine values of Buddhism. She even boasted once that she quit Vishaka College because she found the Buddhism in it somewhat distasteful to her exalted standards. She claimed that she discovered her paradisical liberation only after she joined a non-Buddhist school.

She also appears from time to time in these columns posing as the sath bhasa parameswara, tripitaka wageeswara and vinaya-arakshaka Anunanayake, of course, loaded with tons of cosmetics plastered all over her face. And her primary mission seems to be to ride on her Buddhistic broomstick stuck between her legs, aiming to clean up the Buddhist world. Her titty-lating anti-Sinhala-Buddhist screams make it amply clear that she never fails to get a kick out of her missionary position. Applying un-Buddhistic cosmetics – tons of it — seems to be her way of getting rid of her Freudian frustrations.

Reading her sermons on Buddhism one would think that she is on the verge of attaining nirvana, leaving the yellow-robed and other lay “clowns” to spend the rest of their time in the depths of a burning and beastly narakadiya. She reminds me of JR Jayewardene who proclaimed that he plans to attain nirvana in this life, even though it was his practice to gulp down one or two shots of whiskey a day before dinner. She has raised a series of questions more to pour scorn on the Buddhists than to put them on the straight and the narrow. As a lapsed Buddhist who is not so pure as Ms. Serasinghe I too wish to ask her a few questions to understand what makes a punctilious Buddhist like her run from her mirror to body shops where she hopes to buy her cosmetic nirvana at a price.

My initial questions are based on basic Buddhist principles. Since she demands almost an ascetic code of conduct from other Buddhists who, according to her, should only meditate in the nearest jungle to find the ultimate liberation can she explain how her jewellery decking her “kunu kaya” (rotten body) would help her to attain nirvana? In posing as a Buddhist purist, condemning others as “clowns”, isn’t she ego-tripping to boost her self-esteem sagging in her ageing breast? Doesn’t she know the story of Buddha auctioning the corpse of the highest paid tart of his time with no one buying her dolled up “kunu kaya” even when the price came down to zero? As a Buddhist committed to its highest principles does she believe that painting her face is the shortest cut to nirvana? Since she believes that giving dana and helping the sangha are practices that will not help the Buddhists to find their way to nirvana does she believe, as a pure Buddhist, that getting dolled up and partifying at the first opportunity when an invite comes her way is the better way to nirvana? Will she agree with me that painting her face will certainly boost her ego but not improve her mind? What will all her prettyfying with expensive cosmetics do to improve her knowledge or practice of Buddhism? Shouldn’t she spend her time and money she wastes on prettyfying her Plain Jane looks to help the needy? Is she buying up all the latest make-up available because she is afraid to look at the mirror without her cosmetics? And when she goes to bed at night does she like Marilyn Munroe wear only Chanel 9 to make her kunu kaya smell good?

Make no mistake. I am not being personal in raising these seemingly personal questions. To the readers who are not familiar with the Theravada Buddhist philosophical tradition of Sri Lanka it may sound as if I am being personal. But Ms. Serasinghe will know that I am only applying the basic principles of Buddhism, which is derived from “sa-ra noo kunu kayak aragena kumata though sapa vindin-nay” and also “kumana natum keli kavata sinahada” etc. These lines are from the best exposition of existential Buddhism. My questions stem from the basic Buddhist doctrine. No hard feelings, please note. She can’t take it amiss because I am following her own footsteps in applying Buddhist principles to her as strictly as does to other Buddhists.

In fact she confirms this when she contends that indestructible Buddhism is lodged fixedly in the mind of Buddhist devotees and the state need not step in, with constitutional and legal guarantees, to defend Buddhism. This implies that the other clowns who claims to be Buddhists must follow her example and reach her level of supreme serenity that lifts her mind to the highest state of Buddhist enlightenment without any external aid. If her argument is that Buddhism doesn’t need external aid why is she, as Buddhist, painting her face so much, knowing that it is a worthless exercise that does not help her to be a better Buddhist? In which sutra is it that stated that a pure usapaka ammandi like Ms. Serasinghe must doll herself to deliver her sermons on Buddhism? Her entire thesis is devoted to condemning the cosmetics of Buddhist practices followed by the bhikkus, dayakayas and lay community. Shouldn’t she, therefore, set the example by eschewing cosmetics and pursue Buddhism in the most simplistic mode. Instead she paints her face so much that she needs only a few more coloured strokes like a black moustache, blood red patches on her cheeks, some green spots here and there on her face and a dunce cap to transform her image into a circus clown.

The fact is that she has nothing original to say except to parrot the routine of what others have said many time before. She pontificates as if she is the last word on what has gone wrong with Buddhism without realising that she is merely repeating what the anti-Sri Lankan propagandists have been saying at all levels – i.e., from Buddhism Betrayed? S. J. Tambiah to his supplicants in NGOs like Radhika Coomaraswamy and Jehan Perera etc. Ms. Serasinghe, of course, would know that she was connected, once upon a time, to a descendant of the Anagarika Dharmapala family. It is possible that the divorce from that connection could have caused some antagonistic fixations in her mind against Buddhism. At least, it cannot cannot be overruled. But I must concede that this is mere speculation.

What is important is to evaluate her hysterical assertions about Buddhism and its relationship to the state. Is she finger-pointing for the good of Buddhism, or to use it as a political tool to denigrate and weaken Buddhism as a cultural force that shaped the nation down the ages? If she has nothing original and/or substantial to say to the Buddhists why doesn’t she do it in front of her mirror instead of braying in public? Why is she picking only on the Buddhists? What about the other religionists? How faithful are the other mainstream religionists to the founding principles of Christianity, Islam or Hinduism?

To her all those who defend Article 9 of the Constitution – a legal provision that has come down from the 1815 Convention – are clowns. She thinks she is not a clown because she is for the removal of Article 9 which states, inter alia, “……..it shall be the duty of the State to protect and foster the Buddha Sasana……” But if you read her article, particularly the questions she raise to condemn Buddhism as practised in Sri Lanka, she exposes herself as Devidatta’s weird offshoot living in cuckoo land.

Let me begin with one of her key questions though I am not quite sure whether the essence of my reply will sink through the impenetrable layers of paint in her thick head. Assuming the pompous pose of an Amazonian intellectual she asks: “Might I also ask, what in heaven’s name is so “supreme” about the Sinhalese people? What have we, the Sinhalese achieved, others have not, to entertain such “pride”? I challenge all those out there, who keep chanting, “I’m proud to call myself a Sinhala-Buddhist”, to give me a valid answer to my questions, as so far, I have not.”

If Ms. Serasinghe knew anything about the nation’s history she should know that of all the migrants who made Sri Lanka their home only the Sinhala-Buddhist turned out to be the supreme creative force that tamed the wilderness and transformed the land into a civilised and welcoming culture for other migrants to co-exist as equals with dignity and respect. This nation today consists of the Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslim and Burgher migrants. But the ubiquitous foundation stones, the overarching ideology, the monumental art and architecture, the engineering feats of the hydraulic society, the sweat and the blood that built the life-giving tanks and the inspiring temples were contributed by the Sinhala-Buddhists.

Of all the migrants it was only the Sinhala-Buddhists who gave the world a new language, new culture and a new civilisation. Other migrants invariably were stuck in the ideological baggage with which they landed and were quite content to live inside their narrow boxes. Arnold Toynbee, the great historian, in his magisterial study of human civilisations, mentions only the Sinhala-Buddhists as a pioneering community that responded successfully to the challenges faced by the early settlers. It is the supreme achievements of the Sinhala-Buddhists that makes them stand above the other migrants who were mere by-standers, lending an occasional hand to the mainstream culture that moulded the nation. When the great savant Ananda Coomaraswamy wrote on Sri Lanka he lauded the exquisite treasures of Medieval Sinhala Art and pleaded for its preservation. When the leading German Indologist researched the Eastern contributions to culture he focussed essentially on the Mahavamsa, the unbroken record of Sinhala-Buddhist history. When the founding members of the Royal Asiatic Society explored from the 18th century the past of Sri Lanka they concentrated on Sinhala-Buddhist history mainly because there was nothing else that was outstanding on the same scale. The list of historic achievements of the Sinhala-Buddhists is longer than any of Ms. Serasinghe’s beauticians can imagine to improve her Plain Jane looks.

Ms. Serasinghe challenged the Sinhalese to prove that they have something which others don’t have to be proud of. I have provided incontrovertible evidence to confirm the superior contributions made by the Sinhala people just not to the nation but to the global culture. In giving the world a unique language, culture and civilisation the Sinhalese have proved their creative power and their unique capacity to lift themselves up to great heights as a civilising force. It was a humane civilising culture which gave a protective hand for the other minorities to grow together without aggressive claims to a superiority which they do not possess.

The protective shade given to minorities by the Sinhala-Buddhists goes way back into historical times. Instead of wiping out minority cultures it accommodated and integrated other cultures into its mainstream unlike in some other cultures. In India, for instance, Buddhism was wiped out by the dominant culture of hostile Hindus. In Indonesia Buddhism was erased by the rising forces of Islam. So was it in the Maldives. On the contrary, the Buddhist kings of Sri Lanka gave protection to the Hindus, Christians and Muslims. It is these unique contributions that has placed the Sinhala seal of superiority over the rest. The minorities, on the other hand, turned round and bit the hand that fed them to thrive. As revealed by the historian Dr. G. C. Mendis the records of the Portuguese, Dutch and the British do not show communal conflicts with the Sinhalese until the 20 the century when the minorities reacted violently claiming power and privileges that disturbed peaceful co-existence in historic times. So taking into considerations the overall factors, which community does Ms. Serasinghe think should be rated as superior contributors to civilised co-existence in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society?

In the light of the answers given above it is Ms. Serasinghe’s turn to provide her evidence to prove that the Sinhalese are not superior to the others in making their lasting contributions to the glory of the nation. The minorities have thrived because the Sinhalese opened the doors for them to achieve their goals. It is the aggressive demands far exceeding their contributions to the preservation of peace and prosperity that has worsened the inter-ethnic relations of the nations. For instance, if the aggressive Tamils of the North did not go down the path of the violent Vadukoddai Resolution their history and that of the nation would have been different.

Now I await Ms. Serasinghe’s response so that the readers can judge the credibility of this Bunkum-wathie. If she can I will send her box of Elizbeth Arden’s or Max Factor’s cosmetics,whichever she likes, to make her look better.

Her inability to see clearly may be due to the cosmetics that cloud her vision. Perhaps, if she could bring down her arching eyebrows from outer space to their original location and if she can remove her artificial eye-lashes and look at the world more realistically through her natural attributes, she has a good chance of overcoming her chronic myopia. Perhaps, she will also agree with me that there is no place for cosmetics in Buddhism. They are used to distort reality. It gives a false self-image and make the users of cosmetic believe that they are greater than what they really are in life.

I know it is too late to teach new tricks to an old female canine but Ms. Serasinghe must realise that both foreign and local academics, with far superior knowledge than what is contained in her peanut brain, have tried to do what she has done – denigrate the Sinhala-Buddhists – on a more sophisticated level and failed. Misguided pundits like Kapferer, Gombrich, S. J. Tambiah, H. L. Seneviratne, etc., etc. who were engaged in this business of denigrating Sinhala-Buddhists have been ripped into shreds by Dr. Susantha Goonatilake in his brilliant survey. titled Anthropologizing Sri Lanka, An Eurocentric Misadvanture. (Indiana University Press). If she has nothing better to do than repeat what more knowledgeable pundits have failed to do shouldn’t she start a new hobby like putting the hair back into the places where she has removed them?

There are also other aspects of her anti-Sinhala-Buddhist article that needs further scrutiny. I shall deal with them after I read her reply proving that she is a Satya-wathie and not a Bunkum-wathie.

    Don’t waste your time mate.

    More Ms S bashes Sinhala Buddhists , more determined we should be to protect our Religion, its Customs and its Culture.

    I am talking about the Dalits because our Elite now seem to be practising Yahapalana Buddhism.

    Finally our Norwegian trained Gnanissara has spoken about the plight of our Sinhala Buddhist poor, instead of barking up the wrong tree.

    Bodhi Pooja offering Sirisena has finally listened to Gnanissara and agreed to stop our Sinhala Buddhists being chased away from Bogaha Wewa by Muslim Ministers in collaboration with the TNA MPs.

    Bodhi Sira has agreed to meet Gnissara again to give a progress report.

    And Bodhi Sira has even instructed the Treasurer Galleon Ravi to import Beef rather than slaughtering cattle in our Buddhist Homeland.

    Wonder how will that go down with the Wahabi SLMC which signed a MOU with Batalanda Ranil just before the Election?…

      Before you make any efforts to educate Ms. Serasinghe, try to educate yourself on the crucial issues that the country /nation has been facing due to the ill nature of your kind of guys.
      This nature not being able to see it right -as one with a bird brain would do, you have constantaly been trying to paint an another picutre. Either you guys being in late 60ties grasp it or leave the good ones to do their jobs.

      Mahanwanse was written and passed in an era where not much information on the issues were there. Since then nothing has been changed, no doctoral theseis or the kind have been finalized, but to stick on what had been added in there is going on even today. That is actually the case- like born fools would do, lankens go on with that. Truth is even bible has been refromed AND brought timely versions -. update versions.

        The Bible and the other so called holy books they can reform and update any way they like but the ‘Buddha Dhamma’is “Akaliko” needs no changes and can be applied at all times.
        You seem to have confused yourself about Buddha Dhamma with Mahawanse which has nothing to do with the Dhamma.

          You have guranteered the size of the IQ that burupala may have.

          So, u cant get it for sure. Let alone read the Mahawanse written few hundreds years ago and come back to discuss it.

      How did CT allow such a derogatory article written by this H.L.D. Modapala, the biggest clown among the CT writers?

      His entire article is nothing but personal attack, he talks about cosmetics and the make up on Ms. Sharmini Serasinghe much more than the subject matter.

        When someone writes personal attack which includes sexist comment, it is because they are out of real argument about the given subject. This is a usual tactic used by many people to put down the person whom they are unable to argue with. A cheap ploy. It tells a lot about the writer than anything else. This article is the best example.

      RE: Educating Ms. Serasinghe On The Uniqueness Of Sinhala-Buddhism

      “Without any reservations I must concede that the Buddhist clowns must be reined in, as stated by Ms. Sharmini Serasinghe.”

      Yes, too many Sinhala exploiting the Enlightened Buddhism, to their Advantage.

      They should be called Sinhala Mara-ism.

      Islam, has its version too. It is called Wahhabi-ism. A lot of clones. In fact after 200 years the Wahhabis managed to convert 25% of Saudi Arabians to Wahhabism.

      They are indeed strange bedfellows.

      One may rename them Sinhala “Buddhist” Maras like Iblis-Wahhabies, Satan-Wahhabies.

      The Sinhala Buddhists kill Tamils and Muslims by calling them non-Sinhala Buddhists.

      The Wahhabies kill non-Wahhabi Muslims and others by calling them non-Wahhabies.

      They are focused on Nibbana, Nirvanna and Heaven.

      There is ample data in support of this above statement.

      Quoting it from his text – this absolutely no go.

      This man has been joking I guess, why hiim to have mixed it up with make up of a woman with practising buddhism …. what a joke.. it is like kendai rawulai mixed up.

      Just because he should add his 2 cts worth, he must not add it this way – fooling anyone on this very platform. Almost many commentators are clear the bugger is a mutation – would do anything to be belonged to the good books of modayas.
      Guys, show many any articles the bugger has ever brought on any alarming issues in the country – but with constructive arguments ? None:

      These men can only weed the nation – knowing that majorities are gulliable – and easy targets for the political survival of selfishe politicians.

      Having listend to what former President has to add on the pact being preprared on the code of conduct of monks or bubbhists of the day- I feel, he has been making every effort to paint it in favours of grabbing those mind sets. But as we are all aware, nothing is being made by any bills yet. It has just begonnen a discussion only. That is long overdue on the like issues.

    The Buddha did not seed a religion nor did he want his enlightened thoughts to become a religion. He was on a quest to understand suffering and in the process reform a cobweb ridden belief system that is called Hinduism now. Does Sinhala Buddhism, Theravada Budhusm , Mahayana Budhusm , Hinayana Buddhism and any Buddhism with a different label have a meaning beyond the principles or philosophy the Buddha enunciated? Theravada Buddhiam, in particular, sits on a underlay of the type of ‘ Hinduism’ practiced in South Ibdia and Sri Lanka, it is a hybrid belief system in practice. To a great extent this applies to Burna ( Myannar) and Thailand.’. Prof. Dharmadasa called this phenomenon ‘
    synchretism.’

      What kind problems they have to search for greener pastures down there – Ausies should focus to give refugee to the ones who are due – like Syrians. Right at the moment, nothing like Asylum necessary for any srilankens.

      Living on the dole – abusing social laws, the kind of Mahindapalas are scattered even in Europe.

      Not only do I endorse everything ‘Hamlet’ has written, I would add that HLD has again, true-to-form, descended into gutter journalism. He confirms what we knew all along, that he is a cad and a roué. Ms Serasinghe does not need to stoop to reply to this perfect example of our sub-species. For too long we have let him entertain us with his revisionist tosh, and his puerile battles with others. It is our good fortune that he has chosen to make his lair far away from us. Australia, so good at repelling incoming vermin, must have been nodding-off, on the day they let him in.

      He’s following the low standard of write up of his clown friend KAS on CT with all of his repetitive words which I do not wish to repeat here .
      CT you should not allow these low grade preachers on this web site. They are a disgrace, stick to debates . The politicians expose themselves to criticism , that is their game, .
      In Democracy the public should be able to criticise the short comings of their Politicians whom they voted for unlike these third grade so called bloggers destroying the credibility of this WEBSITE. They should go and write these garbage on the web like Lankaweb. Such a low grade website with low grade journalists who contributes to it and HLDM IS ONE who contributes with his smirky dirty face.

        Are you sure he is married to a woman? Are they happily married? Is he taking out his frustration and anger on Tamils because he is a henpecked husband. Poor man.

        He needs a lot of support, care and counselling. If true, then I am right behind him.

      “Mahindapala, what a poor attempt at an reply to Sharmini Serasinghe’s Article.”

      “Your personal attacks on her appearance has no bearing on what she has written.”

      Yes, an argument or reaction directed against a person rather than the position they are maintaining.

      Ad hominem attacks on Ms. Sharmini Serasinghe is a very good indication that H L Mahindapala is intellectually bankrupt and appears to think that stupidity is a virtue- Mahindapala Philo-Koalemos, Love of Stupidity.

      Who is Mahindapalas God? Not Certainly the Enlightened Buddha, and Buddha never claimed to be God. Then Who? Koalemos.

      Koalemos: In Greek mythology, Koalemos is the god of stupidity,mentioned once by Aristophanes,and being found also in Lives by Plutarch. Coalemus is the Latin spelling of the name.

    Hi Sumane,

    Long time could not reply to your comments. I was reading till the end and was looking for your famous words, Dalits, Batalanda and of course the Wahabis.

    If you consider Ponnasara as the custodian of Buddhism in Sri Lanka, then you need to take immediate treatment from a psychiatric. He is a bloody shame for Buddhism, let me say why.

    1. He is a drunkard. (Check the Entry log in Grandpass Police)
    2. He is a womaniser as per the confession of a close friend of him.( Check the social network)
    3. He is a foul mouthed person speaking utter filth (Check the video, involving police officers)
    4. He is an instigator of Murder and Mayhem (Aluthgama/Beruwela)
    5. He cares two hoots for Buddhism, just an Ace Racist like his master MARA.

    If you consider handing over the custody of Buddhism to this two legged animal, then you need medical examination. Seek some advise from real Buddhists, if you feel offended purely by the faith I belong to.

    I consider you as a human, hence my concerns for you.

What has Md Serasinghe’s make up got to do with her argument however much Mahindapala tries to draw a connection.

You are a failure and achieved nothing. You have been know to have sown hatred sowing people. You were thrown out by the UNP hierarchy from the Lake house after the death of President Premadasa.

      “Why should Buddhism given the formost place and why it is the duty of the state to protect and to forsted Buddha Sassana”

      It is simple mate. Those who pay the piper gets to calls the tune.
      The government of Sri Lanka is mainly funded by Sinhala Buddhists and they should get their moneys worth,others too do get Government patronage accordingly.
      Those who make a big fuss about it do so not because they do not understand this simple truth but they get paid for doing it.
      Take Sharmini’s article for example.Does it look anything like written in the interest of Buddhism? No…she simply insults a few people whom she despises and paint the whole of Buddhism in Sri Lanka with that brush.

    Thank you Mr. Mahindapala for putting what I myself felt so eloquently. She struck me as one of these Colombians who were dancing the night away in Colombo hotels during the time of the war when our soldiers were dying in thousands on the battlefields. They do not care so long as their comfortable life is maintained. All the paint in the world cannot hide a cold heart that has no gratitude for the Sinhala Buddhists who gave their lives so that people like her can live in comfort. Thank you once again. You have said it all.

      I guess, personal attacks on Buddhist monks in a Buddhist country is fair game? As Harvey Perera stated, these CT readers, the champions of multiculturalism were too busy with their hedonistic partying to notice there was a 30 year war in which 26,000 SINHALA soldiers died so all these CT reading jokers can carry on with their hedonistic lifestyle in a bomb free country.

      Didn’t these jokers make fun of the war saying it was carried out in Pamankade and Madawachchiya?

      Somebody mentioned updating the bible but despite all the updates they still haven’t managed to root out intolerance of female priests, Blacks and homosexuals from bible preaching countries while at the same time abusing the extreme tolerance of Buddhists and Buddhism in Sri Lanka. How could they carve out separate states within SL(North and the East) if not for the extreme tolerance of the Buddhists?

    No doubt that the Singalese people are the best compared with anybody else in the world, but in recent times, some bad elements have brought out bad side of this race, such as, envy, jealousy and greed, and by this they are becoming lowly.

    Secondly, another fact you need to check is until the Europeans colonized this country it always operated as independent kingdoms and the northern kingdom was always ruled by Tamil kings except maybe once, so no one can claim that this was one country belonging to one race.

    Thirdly, if you want to see the origin of the Sinhalese language, check the Bengali language, 75% of the words used in Sinhala language are from the Bengali language, perhaps Vijaya came from Chitagong in present day Bangladesh

      The truth had been that every corner of India from the North to the South is entwined with Language , Religion and customs similar to Srilankan customs and Religion all over from the North ,South, East and West of SL to make you understand simply.
      Cut your blood and analyse to see if you have south of India connection . With the myth that your ancestor has got Animal blood too Sinha Le Must have happened when they were residing in the Mahiyangana jungle in Srilanka. ONE FINE DAY ONE OF YOUR AUNTY ANCESTOR GOT RAPED BY A LION . GOOD LUCK TO YOU . What happened to the Myth that King Vijaya as a baby was found floating in a crib in the seas off SL .??? I thought only the sea belong to the fish family .The other truth you need to know is that Srilankans has had colonial and traders Blood too mainly when the Invaders came and used your Gt Gt grandmas and grandpas and used them as slaves and may be you too were born as a result of that Mix Of Portuguese , Dutch, Malays and so on .You really know your seeds .
      There are words and expressions In SL I mean in the North ,South ,East and West are very common similar to every part of India too. This shows your knowledge equalises you with A Frog in the Well. Ok?? Read some books not THE PREACHINGS OF HLDM , KAS AND MARA’S only.

      This moderate man is not moderate at all if he thinks that one race should have more than one country? Tamilnadu has more than 70M Tamils and Sinhale only has 2M Tamils. It is obvious even to a child where the Tamil Nation lies. Why should Tamils have more than one nation depriving the Sinhala people of their only Nation. So much for GREED and all the unfairness that comes with it not to mention a 30 year war which killed thousands of people both Tamil and Sinhala.

      Just because Tamil kings from Tamilnadu invaded Sinhale at every opportunity and ruled the Northern part, doe not mean they can carve out a SECOND NATION OR A HOMELAND. If that was the case, then most countries including England belongs to the Romans and most of Africa belongs to the French and most of Latin America belongs to the Spanish.

      It is OK for Tamils and Muslims to spew out extremism and engage in land grabbing and carving out exclusive territories on ethnic basis but it is NOT OK for the Sinhala people to protect what little is left from their heritage. If we had few more Gnanasara theros in Sinhale it would now be a proud nation towering in the world like the 57 Muslim majority countries and Tamilnadu. It is about time Sinhala people learnt from their Tamil & Muslim brothers in how to defend and protect their heritage and if it means crying rape all the time, so be it. Just STOP being a SPINELESS race and learn to CRY RAPE from their Tamil & Muslim brothers as we are treated as third class citizens in our own Sinhala Nation.

        Weather 70M Tamils or 2M Tamils is not the matter. Why one race cannot have more than one country?

        Just like the Arab nation has several countries in the Middle-East and North Africa, the Tamil Nation had several countries (Chola Nadu, Pandya Nadu, Chera Nadu and Eela Nadu) in India and Sri Lanka and still has two regions/states in South Asia (Tamil Eelam and Tamil Nadu). Tamil Nadu belongs (Homeland) to the Tamils of India and Tamil Eelam belongs (Homeland) to the Tamils of Sri Lanka.

    I am usually a bit hesitant to pen my thoughts whenever HLDM writes his piece as I may have to completely stop all my other work to comment on what this baboon writes. May be this time I have this inspiration to do just that and see whether he can be dragged down into the gutter with his beard.

    “Of course, it is not going to be an easy task because reining in the clowns of her type will be as difficult as removing the layers of paint from her face….The plastic look on her face….. of course, loaded with tons of cosmetics plastered all over her face. ”

    I was scratching my head how on earth HLDM is so clinical about the face of someone. Then it struck me the standard that he may have perused may be his own backside and he probably assumes that everyone will look as ugly as his own backside. Poor chap, how much he must be starving to get his act right. If this joker drops his pants for a sneak free preview, even his own kind (baboons) may turn the other way.

    “Applying un-Buddhistic cosmetics”

    This baboon prefers a dick show in full public view and that will be “Buddhistic”.

    “As a lapsed Buddhist who is not so pure as Ms. Serasinghe”

    Hey guys/gals, this Professor Higgins has become a new definition of a “Buddhist” – a lapsed Buddhist. What, is he confessing that his time as Buddhist had “lapsed” and that he is ……

    “isn’t she ego-tripping to boost her self-esteem sagging in her ageing breast?”

    Oh my god, what a lucky devil is this baboon. Come on HLDM, surely you should not leave us out on such a chance to the sight. Perhaps, they may be sagging (pardon me) as an instinctive reaction to your tumbling dick. Come on friend, get that major of yours up and running, then most probably you may get the wish you long for.

    “Doesn’t she know the story of Buddha auctioning the corpse of the highest paid tart of his time with no one buying her dolled up “kunu kaya” even when the price came down to zero?”

    Oh yes, a good story teller. Hear, hear, Buddha’s secretary knows all.

    “Make no mistake. I am not being personal in raising these seemingly personal questions”

    Hahahaha. Of course, he is not being personal at all. Are you people dumb? He is just being a plain saint who just like to poke and see whether anything sticks. That cannot be personal isn’t it? A real pat pat pat for being the finest gentleman.

    Its God’s blessings that HLDM has now switched his attacks on his fellow Sinha-le people, instead continuing his constant attacks on Tamils & Muslims of this country and he will go on with the Sinhala attacks for some time and its a relief for the Tamils & Muslims readers of renowned CT journal.
    He failed to realise that there are Sinhala Buddhists following Buddhism in Sri Lanka but there is nothing called Sinhala Buddhism.
    Buddhism is an off shoot of Hindu religion, practiced by Lord Buddha
    who spread the religion from India to the rest of the world,including
    Sri Lanka.

    There is a hue and cry among the majority that Buddhism should be given a prestigious position in the country and protected at all levels as if other religions are sub standard and those who practice Buddhism are all saints. Writers like Ms.Sharmini Serasinghe should
    be complimented for highlighting the misdeeds done under the guise of Buddhism, which preaches tolerance and live and let live policy.

    The atrocities done in Sri Lanka, regularly like murders, rape, corruption, nepotism, hatred and down trod on poor masses, and under world gangs thriving on sale of drugs, spoiling the innocent citizens, and those who instigate the majority people to riot against the minorities ,are all against the preaching of Lord Buddha and writers who highlight such wrong doings to the masses are the real Buddhists, who learnt the religion in the right way and not people like HLDM, also a Buddhist, who has a sick mind.

      As they say, it takes one to know one.

      I have never heard these globally powerful minorities ever say anything nice about the Buddhists of Sri Lanka which speaks volumes about their own nature and attitude. They go all round the world spewing hatred against the Sinhala people and the Buddhists.

      Contrast how the Sinhala people get treated in the Tamil Nation of Tamilnadu (never mind the Sinhala people but see how they treat their own LOW CASTE TAMILS and the same is true of Jaffna)? See how our Sinhala people get treated in the 57 Muslim majority countries and contrast this with how the minorities get treated in Sinhale. It is the minorities who are endlessly ranting and raving against the Sinhala Buddhists and crying rape all the time so that the American Imperialists and their poodles can come running to Sinhale to preach human rights which they never practice in their own countries. The American police are shooting black people on a daily basis and the few remaining Native Indians are banished to extremely remote, uninhabitable “reservations”.

        “I have never heard these globally powerful minorities ever say anything nice about the Buddhists of Sri Lanka which speaks volumes about their own nature and attitude.”

        Have you met them all and sought their opinion on Buddhists of Sri Lanka?

        You are confused.

        There is a humongous difference between Buddhist of this land and Sinhala/Buddhist forming as part of the noisy minority. If you are a member of the latter, you are rest assured you deserve what you get.

        “Contrast how the Sinhala people get treated in the Tamil Nation of Tamilnadu”

        How do they treat the Sinhala people?

        Tell us do the Sinhala/Buddhists treat the minorities in their own land, never mind how they treat their own Sinhala speaking dalits?

        “never mind the Sinhala people but see how they treat their own LOW CASTE TAMILS and the same is true of Jaffna)?”

        Its for the Tamil Nadu Tamils to deal with it. You leave the worrying to Tamils, Tamilnadu and India.

        “See how our Sinhala people get treated in the 57 Muslim majority countries and contrast this with how the minorities get treated in Sinhale.”

        If they are treated badly why does the government send them to these countries? Please stop them from going to these countries. I suspect you are one of the beneficiaries whose women folks bring in the bread to feed you and your children, by eking out a living in the medieval middle east kingdoms. Why don’t you go get a job and then feed your family? You feel bit lazy 24/7/52.

        Do you believe incidents of rapes don’t take place in this island?

    I am no stranger to this writer’s uncouth ways. It has been his style in community radio in Melbourne (3ZZZ)where his idea of journalism was to verbally assault and humiliate, with a view to intimidate his adversary.

    In his old age, with scarcely a day when he can get it up any longer let alone maintain it, this is what results. Surely there are more civilised ways to make a point about his opinion on Sinhala-Buddhism?

    With nothing much to excite him, perhaps having a go at a decently dressed and attractive lady in the dirtiest possible manner (see if anyone has appreciated his tirade on her make-up)is perhaps his answer.

    He should be ashamed of himself. Imagine if his children discovered the cad in him, would they even want to see him anymore?

    Our readers deserve far better than this kind of unprovoked invective that is wholly unacceptable in its incivility. Disgustingly revolting ! Yuk !

      Mahindapala has not only destroyed himself but also the well reputed CT. Everybody know Mahindapala has no credibility but CT should not lose their credibility by publishing such third grade articles.

        “Mahindapala has not only destroyed himself but also the well reputed CT.”

        Was there anything left to be destroyed in Mahindapala?

        CT has its own credibility built over the past few years, for letting everyone the opportunity to display one’s own ignorance, stupidity, myth, bravado, ill-informed choices, arrogance, insanity, ….. That is the strength which makes it popular.

        The more HDL M types the more he exposes himself as an irrelevant nuisance.

        We would miss the comments if he stopped typing. Please be kind to us.

    wow what a great example of a third grade reply to an article Mahindapalas reply shows us that

    i)he does not have substence to counter Sharminis article hence attacking her appearance

    ii)Mahindala does not have a decorum of decency in him to make such low remarsk and that too in his ‘so called defence of Buddhism’

    iii) Mahindapala belongs to the gutter with his pals Malinda Dayan and Rajiva

    iv) Mahindapala for his part should now come back and live in Sri lanka to promote Buddhism but he wont leave his comforts of Australia

    few points to ponder

    i) why does CT allow such 3rd class articles to be published?

    ii)hats off to that brave lady Sharmini for exposing the rouges who have hijacked Buddhism
