Gnanasara To Be De-Ordained By Default On June 21st

Secretary of the BBS, Galagoda Atte Gnanasara, currently serving a six months prison sentence with hard labor for verbally abusing Sandhya Ekneligoda, the wife of missing person Prageeth Ekneligoda, could lose his status as a Buddhist monk, according to Prof Medagoda Abhayatissa Thero.

BBS Gnanasara

Speaking at a media conference at the Sunethradevi Pirivena, Pepiliyana, Abhayatissa Thero said that according to the disciplinary texts, the Vinaya Pitakaya, a bikkhu who spends seven days out of the robe can lose his status as per the rule cheevara vippavaasi (residing out of the robe).

The Thero pointed out that in other instances bikkhus that were found guilty of transgressing established laws were punished but never forced to remove their robes.

Gnanasara is currently donning the usual garbs of prisoners, commonly referred to as ‘jumper suits’.

Abhyatissa Thero called on the Mahanayaka Theros to intervene immediately to deal with what he referred to as a deliberate conspiracy to disrobe Gnanasara through the above mentioned technicality.

Meanwhile an unnamed organization has put out posters in Colombo calling for a protest outside the Fort Railway Station at 2 pm on June 18 (Monday).

    The disciplinary text could revoke the monk status for not wearing the rodes but not when all these thugs in the name of monks act in such a barbaric way. This man is acting as a disgrace to all the monks in the country. Wondering why the sanga doesn’t do anything about it? I think righteous monks deserve a huge respect and these thugs are just destroying the respect of the entire monks community.

      Uva Chief Minister, an SLFPer, who intimidated, harassed and ordered a female Principal to kneel down in front of him didn’t go to jail or not stripped off his Chief Ministerial post. The government covered him up.
      There are so many other examples involving more serious intimidation cases, like another Mayor who kidnapped a child and later sold is still enjoying his position. His mayorship was not stripped off as yet.

        Not just him, but there are numbers of examples Champawathie:

        1) 50% or others in Rajaakshe so called cardboard royal family. how many of them are there yet to be jailed ?
        2) Wimal [edited out] Buruwanse even if he was caught on the spot having being abused passports and funds allocated to public – still scot free
        3) Sajin vaas who was then not overlooked to have abused collosal sums of funds – still scot free
        4) Last but not lesat [edited out] Rajakshe- all is clear him to have abused Tsunami funds according to former CJ, but he is still scot free.

        This is so called SRILANKA, Champas, EDWINs and Sachs nd the like are the majority.
        So long you guys would sense it what good can happen to the folks.
        Abasaranyi to you all. !

              Killing unarmed innocent civilian amounts to not only cowardice but also criminal, however none of them have been charged and sentenced to prison in 1958, 1961, 1971, 1977, 1981, 1983, between 1987 and 1990, over the 30 years of war.

              And the rioters and armed forces are being feted as Sinhala/Buddhist heroes.

How about mentioning the year 1975 with the murder of Alfred Duraiappah, the Jaffna Mayor by LTTE and the carnage they carried out until 2009, not to mention denying water to their own Tamil people by blocking Mavil Aru in 2006? Remember? No? Yeah, you don’t remember. You Indians, Tamils and Muslims have selective amnesia like Ranil and the UNP.

                Man, if it was not for Sinhalese Buddhists, their compassion and equanimity, Tamil ethnicity may have wiped out from Sri Lanka long before LTTE was eliminated.
                Ordinary Sinhalese Buddhists or our Army never took revenge from ordinary Tamils for the mansalughter carried out by LTTE.
                Our Army only targeted terrorists by right to stop their crimes against humanity and to protect the right to life of Sri Lankan citizenry.
                All the riots you mentioned were orchestrated by politicians including JVP riots.
                Every country has armed forces not only Sri Lanka and their duty is to protect the country from external and internal dangers and enemies. We are proud of them. If it was not for their sacrifices, we would never have been able to see the dawn of peace which you Indians, Tamils and Muslims enjoy without any appreciation.

            The court hearing of Ven. Gnanasara Thero Appeal is postponed today due to “NON-AVAILABILITY OF ATTORNEY GENERAL’S DEPT OFFICIALS”!!!!!!! Look at that. This was well planned. P…… P, P…..PM and P…Government think that they can get the support of Muslims by imprisoning Ven. Gnanasara Thero. How many Muslims are in this country? Only 7.2%. Idiots. They will lose ALL BUDDHIST VOTES in their stupidity to appease Muslims and Tamils. There will be people next year who would go from house to house voluntarily urging Buddhists to not to vote UNP or SLFP. Let’s see how their candidate will win without Buddhist votes.

              They should have pushed the appeal at least 3 months back. There are other cases to deal with this is not a priority.

              Attorney Generals should now start working on the other cases against Ganasara and file back to back and Muslims too can bring civil charges against Ganasara and BBS for damages, pain and suffering.

              Tie this goon in court for years.

      The reason behind the criminal activities of Gnanasara is a very easily understandable phenomenon. The Sri Lankan system, which was invented by the British is a Mono Ethnic Fascist outfit commanded by the Jewish blooded fake Sinhala Buddhist leadership consisting of a clan called The Govigama Ruling Elites. If one knows the history of the leadership that began in the 1900’s, the Govigama Elites were educated (brainwashed) in the UK, were Christians and then they became Buddhists to take over reigns of the ruling power which is still in their hegemony. DS, Banda, JR and many others simply transformed from Christianity to Buddhism and then they were accepted by the majority dumb population. This is a very effective method the Jews employ to take over a country, a nation or a group of people to be exploited for the benefit of the Evil Zionist agenda and its called infiltration. The origin of the Govigama can be hailing from a mixed Jewish lineage. The undeying racist tendencies the Govigama leadership have is clear indication of this factor. The Brahmins of the Hindu system is similar…. originated from the Jewish lineage, they input their racist mind into any avatar they take to infiltrate into the non-Jewish societies to destroy them from within. —-contd., in Part2

        The sentencing of Gnanasara is thus played against the world public opinions about the weakness of the judiciary we have in our country and this is a damage control verdict given to save the remaining reputation of the system. The 90 % of corrupt, politicised and the mono ethnic supremacist leaning Judges and lawyers are the very reasons the entire system of governance is corrupt to the core without any redemption. The Political heirarchy and the ruling power is hijacked by the criminals who are by profession lawyers or who are members of the judicial system. Many criminal minded political whores choose law profession as a sidekick to enter the political arena to steal. Mahinda Rajapakse is no exception. Though Mahinda is a not an academically capable man, due to one previous govt’s (in the 70’s) decision to allow politicians to take up law as a profession to enhance their image, dumb donkeys like Mahinda Rajapakse became a lawyer by crook. The international focus which is sharply positioned on the credibility and the impatiality of the judiciary and its applications on the society at large is the main reason that Gnanasara has to be implicated for something to save face. Although, its a minor offence compared to his participation and organising of massive riots against the TAX PAYING citizenry of the country which are big crimes tantamount to and equal to TERRORISM, which must be applied the capital punishment.

        part 2….. The infiltration by the Jews into societies has caused a lot of bloodbath in the history of the mankind. In the modern days, they have become the masters in manipulating governments to favour their evil agendas and enforcing their evil machinations that enslaves the whole humanity to serve them only. Empires have fallen into their traps and have lost the ruling power that they held for centuries and the ruling elites became either murdered or became expelled from their native lands. The Jews did these crimes, first by infiltration and then by inciting one group against the other causing deadly clashes that results in the mutual destruction to any of the capable section of the society that might become a threat to the Jewish control. The Jews supply arms and money (on interest of course)to the both fighting sides, if it required to enflame the conflict that may result in the self annihilation of the ‘Would Be’ power holders who might not tow the Zionist lines and be loyal to the Jews if they take over the reigns of power………Contd. on part 3

          Justice, I checked this info long time back and as you have said I could not establish a connection with anyone living in the present so far with available records at the moment. They normally go hidden. This technique coming from the Sabbatai Tzevi’s ( a self proclaimed Jewish Prophet, a false one) time as its their only successful tactic which is very effective and very useful up until today that has helped them to sneakily infiltrate into enemy camps and destroy nations, empires and dynasties and defeat militarily and economically powerful armies and governments. This is another proven fact indicating that the Jews have spread all over world in real and established their presence in every known society, but live a secret life under various other local identities. The powerful Ottoman Khalifate was destroyed in similar method and the disintegration of the once powerful united Muslim World power was thus reduced to weak nation states occupied by the Jews through Britain/France/Russia/Germany and controlled by the biologically & secretlyJewish but openly belonging to the native communities ruling elite cabal. The Saudi Monarch is such a secret Jewish dynasty that openly displyed as true Muslims. They work along with the Zionist system implementing every rule and order that their masters say…….

      The Japanese system that governs Japan is a Pro-Israeli and a Pro-Zionist entity. Type in “Jews of Japan” and you will surprised and shocked to know that the Japanese govt., in the early 1900’s, supported the cause of the Evil Rothschilds Zionists in the robbing of Palestine for the creation of a racist Jewish State. They have given moral support as well as material support to the criminals (Jews) in the Evil Agenda of stealing of the Palestine. As fate would have it, after about 40 odd years, the same Zionist Jews bombed Japan into bits and pieces. Hiroshima and Nagasaki fire bombing and killing millions of Japanese Buddhists is a historical fact, something that the Sinhala Racists have completely forgotten. Jews will always be like that and one day, very soon, the Sinhala Racists and their controllers, the Govigama Mafia Ruling Elites will be exterminated by their own Zionist Masters. Gnanasara and the JHU racists will see it for sure for the Karma that is arriving on them. Until then, let them have it in their own evil ways.

The success behind the GOVI MAFIA RACIST pogroms, many times in the history of the last 100 years, is an indication how the GLOBAL Jewry takes its WAR MONGERING using the proxy ELITES to attain their Zionist goal of the IMPLEMENTATION OF EVIL -THE New World Order agenda. Please try to watch the videos of Christopher Jon Bjerkness and David Icke to know more about how the Zionist system AND ITS PLANS in manipulating the governments to kill its own population for political gains and for the GRAND PLAN OF DE-Population (Agenda 21) of the non-Jewish humanity (Eugenics).

        The Japanese govt., allowing the criminal Gnanasara to travel to and fro between Sri Lanka and Japan frequently and also given him residence VISA is a tell-tale sign of this grand alliance that is working from behind the scenes, between the US, ISRAEL, INDIA, AFGHAN govt.(not the Taiban), SRI LANKA, JAPAN, BURMA, a coalition made checkmate the Pakistan. When a normal person goes to apply for a VISA from any First WORLD countries (or the second and third world countries) the credentials of the applicant is scrutinized to check if he has any criminal records behind him that might pose a threat to the host country. n the case Gnanasara, he is a STATE TERRORIST supported by the GOVIGAMA MAFIA ELITES, who has blood in his hands, the leader of an infamous RACIST/FASCIST outfit that goes about killing and destroying the innocent TAX PAYERS of a country. HOW CAN THE JAPANESE Authorities allow such a criminal to travel to their country and reside among the peaceful population of Japan? Unless, there is an agenda secretly working from behind, between theses two govts of Sri Lanka and Japan that guarantees and stands behind this criminal with by according him with some special DIPLOMATIC kind of arrangement. This is indicating the working of a GRAND ALLIANCE in the GEO POLITICS of dismembering of PAKISTAN (A Rothschild Zionist/Israeli plan).

      Like any other citizen, Ven. Gnanasara Thero has every right to protest against misleading bogus allegations against our Army carried out by traitors, who are funded by NGOs. If you think only Muslims have the right you are mistaken. Government including both UNP and SLFP has forgotten that they have to face the masses one day. People are waiting impatiently to receive them with 2x4s. In 2015, a man even threw hot water at them when they were canvassing, as if by mistake and another group was chased and hooted by villages until they got onto their vehicle and fled. There will be more “savoury receptions” in the offing at the end of 2018. They made a monumental blunder by disgracing the saffron robe in the prison.
      People are sick of this government beyond expression. The present toxic government politics and both pathological leadership which destabilized the country and crippled the entire parliamentary, judiciary and administrative system should be ended decisively at the next Presidential Election.

            The 15 million strong Sinhalese and Buddhists cannot survive in the fast changing world, prevent their assimilation into the wider SAARC people and culture of 1,767 million. Sinhalese should prepare for their own demise or relocation.

    Interesting how we are so worried over a racist and abusive monk sent to jail for threatening to kill someone and trying override justice, but remain amazingly silent when a monk is shot with a gun inside a temple. Typically hypocritic nation and nothing but “KEYBOARD WARRIORS”.

      I do hear what your trying to say but you cannot blame people. The norm is never news but the exception is. A few monks have bastardized the vocation and now when a monk is shot it just accepted as another occurrence.
      If a Hindu or Catholic priest was shot that would have been considered news as they are not considered as thugs.
      So first clean your temples if you want respect.

        The worrying thing is how the Samaneras (novices) are being politicised and exploited in the front line hate campaign.

            Caste and race conscious Mahanayakes cannot plead ignorance in their defense against their own inability to herd their flocks in proper Buddhist path as some of the apologists like us to believe.

            Also those saffronistas who support the thug cannot plead “I was obeying orders”.

            The children bikku brigade should be banned from accompanying the older thugs for the sole purpose of displaying hatred.

        Mind your words, your ban to CT is unavoidable.
        You are absolutely no go.
        CT has to react accordingly.

        YOUA RE BORN RACISTs.
        You just think any TAMIL or MUSLIM folks are abusive.
        But the truth is you the low lives are the headache to us in the country SRILNAKA.

    The 118th Dream of King Kosala: As CT commentators know, King Kosala is someone who gets highly excited by dreams. This dream was more so.
    .
    KK: Machan Puro. I know now that this kind of stupid thing can happen only in Sri Lankadvipa. Still it bothers me.
    .
    Agra Purohitha: Tell me about it, O’King.
    .
    KK: Machan Puro. It is like this. I saw a giant of a Buddhist Priest being taken to a small Kutiya and then being locked up in it. This Priest looked like a Professional Wrestler, more than 4 Riyan tall, with huge biceps and a lot of hair on his chest. That is all I could see because of his yellow robe.
    .
    Then a dozen men who looked like Yamapallas came and there was a big commotion and the men came running out. People gathered around the Kutiya curious to find out what was going. Hearing the news others including Great Prabhus, Lady Purohithas etc. also came there. The Yamapalla types said that they just wanted to disrobe the monk and dress him up in white clothes, but the Priest was resisting. My problem puro is that they may kill him. It upsets me very badly.
    .

    Agra Purohitha: Do not worry O’King. They are not trying to kill him. They just want to see what is underneath the robe. Judging by the uncovered parts of his anatomy, they have extrapolated rightly, the size of the hidden parts. All they wanted was to see these miraculous things with their own eyes so that one day they can tell their grandchildren about this rare Darshan experience they had. Don’t worry. After doing the Darshan, they will let him go.

      But to attack the messager has been his motive.

    This is a reply Steve – on the other page

    Steve
    I don’t bow my head to politicians. I mentioned it in the previous article carrying the news about the imprisonment. Why should I ask the President to pardon the Thero? If I am the President, the moment I hear the jail term, I issue a pardon for the sake of Buddha Sasana irrespective of the name of the Thero. The President who saw a jailed terrorist as a normal innocent man, didn’t see the “robe” going to a prison.
    And I don’t believe Somarama is a Buddhist Priest. I think he used the robe to carry out the assassination. There is no comparison between the two cases.
    .
    You say, “The Prison Laws and the Sangha Laws are different.”
    .
    There are several laws in this country. Child marriages are against the normal law but Muslim marriage law is different which goes above the country’s normal law. When an underage Sinhalese girl eloped with a Muslim, her Sinhalese parents couldn’t bring the child back home as the Muslim law is superior to country’s normal law against child marriages. Does anybody question why Muslim law is given special place?
    .
    The same way there is Tamil Thesawalamai Law, which is a personal law involving property, inheritance, and marriage denying equal rights to other ethnicities, which is against country’s normal law. Does anybody question why Tamils are given special treatment via Thesawalamai Law?
    .
    What I am asking is if Muslim Law and Thesawalamai Law can even transcend country’s normal law, why doesn’t Sanga Law is not respected in the “prison.”??? mWhy?????
    It is because Buddhists and Buddhist priests are discriminated in Sri Lanka. Muslims and Tamils enjoy unprecedented freedom and rights in this country, but Buddhists are even denied their basic. (300-words dead.)

      IT definitely knows that somarama did not kill SWRD. IT was a set up of another bhikku. there was another OZZI Korea there. Even GALLE-ON ravi frequents the Kelani Temple and thought he was the major donor who always the chief inculbant, “Hamuduruwane Salli ona nam kiyanda”.

      Do you remember Mapitigama Buddharakkitta Thero from the Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara being de-robed when he was imprisoned. Your comparison of the various laws is great but the Prison Laws apply to all equally. Hope this Priest will get back some of his own venom from the other prisoners to teach him a good lesson to control his tongue in the future for the sake of the “Buddha Sasana”.

        What are you talking? What prison law? If prison law applies to everybody how could politicians and their kith and kin and senior officials go to prison hospital right away after court verdicts? Visit the prison hospital and see for yourself how many culprits are spending a government paid luxury holiday in prison wards and in special prison cells.
        Prison law is applied only to Buddhists priests, war heroes and the poor masses.

          Champa,
          Buddhist Priests should refrain from a life of luxury, although you know in actual fact for some of them it is the opposite. Hope the President moves him to the prison hospital, which you could visit to ensure everything is taken care of for this Priest. By the way why are the former President and his brother not doing anything about this Priest ?

            You talked about prison law, which is not applied to everybody.
            Thalatha says Gnanasara Thero should wear prison cloths but those who are in luxury prison hospital wards with the patronage of the government don’t wear prison cloths though they are prisoners.
            Prison law can be converted to anybody’s favour by bribing government officials, the police, doctors and prison officials. That the truth.

      Great thought provoker Champa. Thanks.

      Two or three wrongs cannot make a right.

      The Muslim law & Thesawalamai law should NOT be allowed to transcend the Law of the land. Neither should the Sangha Law. There should be only one law common to all Sri Lankans, applicable equally to all priests and laymen alike.

      The only way we can unpickle ourselves as a nation is to apply ONE common Law very stringently to ALL.

      Of course in a totally messed up country such as ours it will not happen.

    Parajika: These days we hear about Parajika frequently concerning the RG affair. What is Parajika? A Buddhist monk (male or female) is required to disrobe voluntarily or can be forced to disrobe by the Guru monk or the Sangha organization that ordained him for becoming Parajika. (defeated).
    The four transgressions which incur a Parajika, the penalty of automatic disrobal, are as follows:
    1. Having sexual intercourse.
    2. Stealing. (Today it would include manipulation of bonds)
    3. Killing a human being, including, inciting another to convincing a woman to have an abortion.
    4. Falsely claim one has realised a Margapala (high spiritual attainment)
    It does not include shouting at a woman.

      Monks disgracing Buddhism protesting the punishment given to a criminal by a court of law.

      “There is a traffic congestion in and around Pettah due to a protest march organized by the Buddhist monks, according to the Ada Derana reporter.

      They gathered today (18) in front of the Fort Railway Station demanding the release of Ven. Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thero.

      After the arrival, an ‘adhishtana pooja’ and a Sathyagraha will be held near the Bo-tree in Colombo Fort.”

        This is typical srilanka where BUDDHISM has been instrumental to enjoy impunity.

        That is being practised by Rajapakses and other politicians and almost every high official in this country.

        This is the biggest obstacle which I see being on the way not being able to implement any reforms to the legal system prevailing there down.

          Every bugger has forgotten that no politician can come to power without the votes of Buddhists.
          Give an example where Buddhism was instrumental to enjoy impunity?
          There is no other period like Yahapalanaya culture where impunity thrives. Selective enforcement of anti-corruption laws is clearly seen. Out of 225, 118 Parliamentarians have taken bribes according to the evidence provided by the government itself. But no action has been taken against a single MP.
          As per the records, Aloysius’s PTL has bribed Ministers, MPs, government officials, Police, civil society leaders, and various other people which has connections with the government 45,000 times!!!!!! 45,000 times!!!!! Where is the COMMISSION TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGATIONS OF BRIBERY OR CORRUPTION (CIABOC)? The DG, Chairman, and Commissioners of the CIABOC – SHOULD RESIGN. They are an utter waste of public money.
          This government has established special High Courts. I demand the government start hearing all corruption cases involving the Prime Minister, Ministers and government MPs first. This is the most filthily corrupt government that the world has ever seen. This government is a disgrace to the good name of our country.
          .
          Hello Sam Fernando – PTL is owned by a Tamil businessman called Arjun Aloysius and his partner in crime, the former Governor, Central Bank is also a Tamil called Arjun Mahendran. They are not Buddhists. Arjun Mahendran is exempted from punishment by letting him leave the country. Describe how Buddhism is instrumental to these two culprits, the biggest rogues in the Sri Lankan history enjoy impunity?????

              He later became Buddha after he left the country of his birth.
              You mention five Buddhist countries in SE Asia where the majority of the people are Buddhist and their common characteristic is the taint of the four evils you mention in your comment.
              But the name of Nepal however does not figure in your list.
              Is it because it’s leaders come from the ordinary people who have elected them irrespective of their Hinduism or Buddhism?

    A RESPSCTFUL REQUEST TO ALL SANGHA: I make this request to you knowing that you are the last resort that Sri Lankan Buddhists like me can turn to in the present crisis concerning Rev. Gnanasra. I am not worried about the Kanahilas commenting here who have seen a chance to insult and attack Buddhism. They are Tamils and anti-Buddhist Sinhala elements just barking like dogs. They want us to disrobe other monks who are suspected of wrong doings. They know that Sangha has been the main bulwark against our enemies for thousands of years. Take the Sangha out and the nation, as well as Buddhism, will remain defenseless, ready to be destroyed. But for the moment we have to ignore the body of the snake and attack its head..
    .
    My main concern are the NGO’s and Western nations who are interfering in our internal affairs. The promptness with which Amnesty International came out with a long statement praising the government and the judiciary on the imprisonment of Rev. Gnanasara is clear evidence of who is behind this. These culprits are being paid big money by the remnants of LTTE.
    .
    The top Leadership of this country who are just keeping mum and doing nothing are just lap dogs of these evil organizations. Some of them seem to be more worried about the welfare of a couple of wild elephants than the humans who are under threat by these wild animals.
    .
    My suggestion is this: If they go on mistreating Rev. Gnansara this way, all the members of Sangha should get together and decide to boycott all public functions attended by the ruling politicos. That should bring these rulers to their senses.

      There is no reason for Bhikkus to be present at every political meeting. They should follow Noblest of all buddha and not the politicians. What they are doing is wrong. They are attaching towards the power which is greed. But Bhikku Ghanasara imprisoning is wrong. IT is political. that Judge should never get a promotion. I heard there was a protestant police officer who waiting to beat the monk inside the prison.

      You seem to have taken from the wrong end. Most silent buddhist monks who are really respecting teaching s of load buddha never like the amok runs of your beloved bed partner Ghanasara.

      That is the reason why Ghanasara paid visit one behind the other to Malwathu chapter. As it is like අබ කැව මිනිහගෙ මොලය දනියි.. – uncivilized Ghansara knew his misbehiavours was like putting a drop of COW dung into a pot of milk. Nevertheless, his attitudes could not be tamed by lanken shaky law and order systems. Politicans close to him abused him as no other. One of them is Gotabaya.
      Ghansara enjoys the public attraction. THat has nothing to do with his buddhist behaviour but wwell with connected to his child-adolesence growth. He should have gone through untold problems in his person. Else, nobody could become that aggressive the way the monk has often been.
      Thanks to him, society is so abusive too, so that he would not see his repeated mistakes. Not once but several dozens of times, the abusive creature lost his temper as no other. Not even wild animls would behave the way how he once behaved himself in the premises of sacred kelaniya Temple. All in all, the man has to face it. I dont think this would have been sufficient. But truths will guide him to all ends. People – the majority were against the abusive monk. But Edwins and Champawithies as usual would do thei rjob for the politicians agendas. Wait and see how the saga will end up in coming days.

    I particularly condemn the way that Minister Thalatha Gunasekara answered questions by the media on this issue. She justified everything that has been done to Rev. Gnanasara and brought examples about Somarama. What Thalatha does not realize is that whatever that was done to Somarama was done during the rule of the SLFP, our own indigenous party. On the other hand, the British treated Kudahakapola Himi better by allowing him to keep the robe.
    .
    I know how Thalatha came to ME and met only the Sri Lankan ‘Kultas’, the higher society SL expatriates, and the ambassadors and never even tried to meet the ever-suffering housemaids here. She had a good time and went back. Thalatha can take a lesson from the President of Philippines on this aspect.

        How many buddists are living in SL. ?

        Not even few hundreds.

        Most budhists live as branded to be buddhists are barbarians.

        Number one example is Edwin Rodrigo

        Number two is Champawathie

        Number three is Bum softy. කන්න ඕන උනාම කබරත් තලගොයා කරගන්නව…you guys make iguanas out of monitors for your own benefits.

    “With the right hand you keep the guy away at a distance, with the left you take the weapon from inside the robe.
    I THINK THIS WAS TOLD BY LORD BUDDHA IN PALI BUT WAS NOT TRANSLATED TO SINHALA”

    I am deeply concerned why Colombo Telegraph permits comments by bigots like Shankar to express their opinions as mentioned above in these columns. Has Colombo Telegraph descended to the level of bigots, racists and others who incite hatred between religious, racial and community groups?

    Spineless Mahanayake’s are using a loophole “if he is out of robes for 7 days”..

    This swine and others like him have done enough damage to the country and Buddhism to have been de-robed a hundred times over before this., Living off my tax rupees and largesse !! I say enough..!

    He and the acolytes who accompany him to create havoc on the streets of our country and should be removed from society for the good of society.

    Mark my words, the Mahanayakes will soon see fit to re-robe him on the basis that his donning of prison garb was involuntary and out of his control

    If all the monks who should be disrobed were disrobed, there would only be a few hundred monks left. And they would mostly be found in the forest monasteries. A sad thought.

    But on the other hand, Buddhism would be liberated from Sinhala-Buddhism and it would flourish.

    This fake monk deserves much worse…what about the other charges?
    He should be looking at a few years of jail time, if only there was justice in this sorry country.

    As for the apologists of this despicable human being, like Edwin Rodrigo and Jim Softy, I guess the world is now divided between progressive elements
    and fascists and racist bigots like them.

    I for one have no special respect for Sri Lankan monks anymore..the so called Mahanayakes may show their true colours now..

      Mahanayakasa re just uneducated elderly monks who abuse lanken state funds for their existence.
      Nothing else.
      Those politicians go and kneel down before Mahanayakas do all high crimes.
      On the top of the list, you will find Ballige Putha Rajapakshe. He is a born culprit and will see his ends the way Gadafi fated it. No doubt about that.

        I saw a video, some Ghanasara Proxy pseduo monks pose questions to one of those elderly monks about disrobing of Ghanasara would NOT be possible or what…. it was like a tag question to the very old monk.. so he nodded only.
        Where have we been taken to ? Is this not 21 st Century ?

        I believe, Lanken buddhist should be out of the spot light. THey should only focus on teh disipline and cultural issues not in POlitics:

        You have showed your education which is below kindergarten level. Man, all our Sinhalese Kings who built massive tanks, stupas and buildings (Lowamahapaya was a 9 storied building) which showed their exceptional knowledge and expertise in engineering, mathematics and architecture, were educated in Temples and Pirivenas in the ancient time. Go back to school and learn the history.
        .
        Yeah, they (Yahapalanaya jokers and their international players) expected Gaddafi style, a middle eastern style bloodthirsty riots in January 2015, but it never materialized as the majority in Sri Lanka are Buddhists.. But if they don’t hold the Presidential Election, then you will be fortunate to see them ceremoniously occupying in trash bins.

          This is no right. please read and get the facts right.

          Not kings but the people did that much of work building such big lakes.

          You guys just follow the news of Derana.. [edited out] Rajapakshe became a king thanks to abusive Media Men of Hiru and Derana.

          So Wimalawathi became that polarizsed thanks to the same media men.

          So for the sake of the youth please try to get your facts right Chamapawathi

            People who built lakes were guided by Kings.
            I don’t watch Derana except Videos of the Day and political programmes where Wimal is in, if any.
            Wimal is not polarized. Our politics are polarized but it is not Wimal’s doing.
            Our country has been divided for a long time for various reasons. That is why I am trying to unite Sinhalese, at least Sinhalese Buddhists to get together and vote one man.
            Here I made my facts right for the sake of you.

              So all those kings were hydraulic engineers with construction background.
              Brilliant.

              Please update your Mahawamsa and school text books.

          Not bothered about SLFP at all. The Head of State has no future. He is fully responsible for destroying Sri Lanka by coupling with Ranil Wickremasinghe and the UNP who are corrupt to the core to ousted Mahinda Rajapaksa.
          Both of them should be declared “persona non grata” for their treachery against the country, betraying the Army and systematically converting Sri Lanka to a secular country to wipe out Buddhism from Sri Lanka.
          In addition, all MPs who took bribes from Aloysius, PTL and its sister companies should be declared ‘persona non grata” without letting them come back to politics ever again.

            If there is anyone to be declared ” persona non grata” it should be the former President, His family, and Cronies for robbing the country left, right and center. They should have been in prison to have company with Gnanasara Thero.

            No debate. Accept the facts. Gnanasara Thero is now a Prisoner ; not his Robes. Don’t blame the judiciary or the politicians. This Thero has brought disgrace upon Buddhism. Only a naïve little girl like you will go all out in his support.

              You make your facts correct.
              A Buddhist priest fighting for the rights of our Army is not a disgrace upon Buddhism.
              We have many Buddhist priests in our history eg: Ven. Wariyapola Sri Sumangala Thero who pulled the British flag which had been hoisted before signing the Kandy Convention in 1815 and re-hoisted the Sinhale Flag. And the same Buddhist priest saved Sacred Tooth Relics from the British. Later the Thero was imprisoned.
              You should read our history before writing crap.

                Thanks for enlightening me. Was Ven. Wariyapola de-robed when he was imprisoned ? Dr. Rajitha Senaratne mentioned yesterday that 15 Buddhist Priests are in prison at the moment. As a devout Buddhist, which I highly respect, do you know why these Priests are in prison?

    Law of the land should be same to everyone. It does not matter if the person is a Monk, a Priest or a Mullah, the law is same. If anyone protest against the decision of the courts, the accused can petition to a higher court. But if any public, any other monk, any other MP or Minister condemns the courts or the Judge then they should be taken before the courts for disrespecting the courts. This is the utmost duty of the President, PM and the Minister of Justice as they are the guardians of the Law of the country.

    According to Buddhas Teachings, “Self Realization” is the “Key” to Nirvana. Correct me if wrong. In this regard this person Galabodaatte Gnanasara, it is reported has changed his life inside prison in two ways. (1) He has refused any “visitations” and (2) He has started teaching “Buddha Dharma” to other prisoners. Very encouraging and pleased to know how he is changing. That “Refusal” to receive visitors is very note worthy, in that, he would have “Realized” immediately entering the prison that all that “Suffering” was consequential upon the association he had all this time with his “Supporters”; “Sponsors”; “Communal Bigots”; Hoodlums” and in summery all those “Balayas”. In that “Teaching” to prisoners, he would have “Realized” the BEST form of service to the NEEDY is to bring the most deserving to the “Correct Path”. Good START and I look forward to address you in a NEW FORM as a true REVERENT Galabodaatte Gnanasara. But always remember that Great Teaching: “Asewanacha Balanag”. If followed, you will SUCCEED.

      Self realization can only be the case if folks would have proper knowledge on buddhist teachings. Instead they have been caricatures of some idiots that practise what had been written in Mahanwansa.
      Mahanwanse has not yet been subjected to any revisions even if lot more have now been discovered to add it.
      Lanken monks have no basis, they just hang on with untruths that are the facts to date.

    Sri Lanken People of the other religions & some Buddhists may be delighted on this issue but through out our history this kind of events took placed.If majority of Buddhists accept him as a monk, he still a monk. Nobody has right to deny it. Throughout our history Buddhist monks fought battle against injustices. That is their duty.We have number of examples.For us venerable Gnanasara is still a Buddhist monk

      Democracy at its best.
      Something tediously wrong with the majority.
      The monks are not subjected to elections when they first become Samanera nor are they elected by the people every four or so years.

      “Throughout our history Buddhist monks fought battle against injustices. “
      They are Buddhist monks, and not saffron clad thugs.
