Malwatte Mahanayake Refuses To Meet Sirisena: President’s Media Division Makes Desperate Attempt To Suppress Story

Mahanayaka Thera of the Malwatte Chapter, Thibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera has refused to see President Maithripala Sirisena this morning when the latter sought an appointment with the prominent Buddhist monk to discuss the current political situation, Colombo Telegraph learns.

The Mahanayaka Thera had said he did not want to have any meeting with Sirisena who unabashedly violated the constitution by dissolving parliament breaching the provisions of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which he architected himself.

When the reports of Mahanayake Thera’s refusal to meet Sirisena surfaced, the President’s Media Division had strictly instructed provincial journalists in Kandy to refrain from reporting it. As a result, none of the mainstream media institutions in the country received the story this evening.

When contacted by several news reporters in Colombo, the PMD, in a desperate bid to cover-up the humiliating rejection, had said Sirisena did not visit the Malwatte temple and only visited the four Dewalayas in Kandy.

However, after much persuasion, the Mahanayaka thera of the Malwatte chapter had agreed to meet Minister Mahinda Amaraweera, the General Secretary of the UPFA and an ally of Sirisena.

    Sirisena doesn’t even feel anymore the thundering slaps he keeps getting from all quarters of society.

    He is perverse and needs to rejected forthwith. The Mahanayake of the Malwatte Chapter has acted correctly.

    Is this the first time the Malwatte Mahanayake has refused to meet the head of state?
    The Mahanayake should do it very often.
    I wonder why he meets crooks, racists, bigots, ………….. especially Wimal Sangili Windbag types, …………………… Will he also refuse to meet, Dr Mahinda, Dr Go Dr Ranil, ……………..?

    These “Media Coolies” of the Presidential “Media Unit” do not know how to get things done to get that much desired meeting with the High Priest of Malwatta. They also never learn from the history. If one were to get reminded of that “history”, here it is: – Once a past President of this “Miracle Paradise” offered a “Maha Pirikara” of 50 Duty Free Vehicle Permits and “Presented” the “KEY” of a “Benz Car”. Don’t be “FOOLS” to go with “Ata Pirikara” that which does not give: “Mahath Pala Maha Anisansa”. You “IDIOTS” of the Presidential Media Unit, learn to do things in the most “Appropriate” manner, without “Discrediting” the “Teaching” viz. “Poojacha Poojaneeyanag”.

    Way to go, the Most Venerable Chief Prelate Malwatte Thero!!!! Well done.
    I like that!!!
    I like when our Venerable Maha Sangha don’t succumb to tyranny, power or manipulation.
    Soon the ordinary people will also reject the President.
    I like those who have the guts to stand by what is right, without getting intimidated by political power.
    I like when people fight for their democratic rights.
    Politicians should respect people’s mandate demonstrated in the Parliament irrespective of which party it holds.
    This is the beginning of the end of Maithri-Mahinda Hybrid Moonlight Government!
    Let’s go, guys.
    I am sorry Mr. former President, I love you very much. But I don’t support what you did. The political coup and every undemocratic, unconstitutional, autocratic things committed in the aftermath of your swearing-in are all against what I fought for so far.

    Ven. Mahanayaka Thera of the Malwatte Chapter, Thibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera ,

    “The Mahanayaka Thera had said he did not want to have any meeting with Sirisena who unabashedly violated the constitution by dissolving parliament breaching the provisions of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which he architected himself.”

    That is the right thing to do. There is no need to meet or give the Blessings of the Triple Gem to those who are violating the mandate of the people and the constitution, provisions of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which he architected himself..

    Sirisena has earned the titles of Traitor, Sevalaya, Mala-Perethaya, Patholaya and Pachaya by most of the citizens of Sri Lanka,.

    It is Sri Lanka that needs the Blessings of the Triple Gem to be protected from a Traitor, Sevalaya, Mala-Perethaya, Patholaya and Pachaya .

    President Maithripala Sirisena ,

    Re: Malwatte Mahanayake Refuses To Meet Sirisena: President’s Media Division Makes Desperate Attempt To Suppress Story

    For blessings, go and meet the so-called Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith.. He has a direct line to the Infallible Pope, who has a direct line to apostle Paul, who has a direct line to Jesus, Son of God, and Jesus to God.

    Somarama did that after killing SWRD., to be saved from Hell-Fire, but he is still burning in Hell-Fire, because the Church Church is a farce.

    You may have to bend over, say deeper please like e Alter Boys, and throw in the left over money you could not part away to the turncoat MPs.

      Amarasiri, we know that Malcom Ranjith is more politician than priest and has lost the respect of even his own flock. We also know the Somaratna and SWRD story. But you don’t have to drag in the Pope and the founder of Christianity into this. Have some decency at least at your age.

        Aelajo ,

        ” But you don’t have to drag in the Pope and the founder of Christianity into this. Have some decency at least at your age.”

        If that is what it takes to dump the so-called Cardinal Malclm Ranjith, it is worth it at any age.

        Why isn’t the Church and the Pope not dumping Cardinal Ranjith? Why did the Pope and the Church protect Cardinal Law? Even the Cardinals are infallible?

    Obviously the Mahanayaka must be mourning…
    Dr Ranil had high hopes not only giving our Inhabitants a new Constitution which would have eliminated influence of the poor rural Sinhala Buddhist in the Nation.
    But Dr Ranil also had grand plans to introduce a new Thripitaka to go along with his New Constitution .

    This Thriptaka with new Precepts were intended to cater to Dr Ranil’s UNP Faction, which have totally different Tastes, Etiquette, Activities ,and Cultural Practices which the great majority couldn’t even dream about let alone afford them..

    It was not long ago the Mahanayaka accepted Atapirikara from Mr Ravi, Akila, Kabir , Mangala, Rajitha . and Ponseka ……
    And Dr Ranil I think even presented the Mahanayaka a Draft of his new Constitution after gloating that he was getting the Mahanayaka to help with his new Thriptitaka..

    Now these grand visions of Dr Ranil have to be Moth Bballed until one of Dr Ranil’s close aides who have been guarding Dr Ranil at the Temple Trees get the gig.
    Or Dr Ranil do a Lazarus ..

    I read in the press today that young Akila said his boss is still the Yahapalana PM and he is not leaving TT..
    While the supporters of the self claimed UNP Sinhala Buddhist Faction Leader whom Dr Ranil banished to Magampura, have said that they will physically remove Dr Ranil if the SBF leader, KK is not given the Job .

      “Dr Ranil had high hopes not only giving our Inhabitants a new Constitution which would have eliminated influence of the poor rural Sinhala Buddhist in the Nation.”

      It could could have democratise not only the process but the state and governance and more and more inhabitants would have more say in the governance and stake in the state. Obviously the donkeys in the government and the state functionaries would have been made accountable to people and not to the clan, mafia bosses, local thugs, saffron clad thugs, …………………… The state functionaries could have been liberated from the clutches of their political masters.

      But then the clan and other crooks wanted the business of governance remain as usual as before. Enjoy while it last.

    Not only this, there are more to come for Shitsena. He and his goons are like that ostrich – when sees any danger puts it’s head inside the sands, and thinks that it escaped the calamity but doesn’t know that it’s whole hulk is exposed. They don’t know this is the cyber age. Every one is a citizen journalist, and the smart phone is a TV and radio station. People are getting hot and crispy news instantaneously to their hands via YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Viber, IMO, news websites like CT etc. UNP, JVP etc have their lively social media channels, and all get upto dated on constant basis. Now who cares about mainstream media, and it going to be dead soon.

    I would always take this kind of story with a pinch of salt. While the Ven. Mahanayake may have refused to see the President the reasons attributed cannot be bought without a higher degree of proof. If I were the Ven. Mahanayake and if I see that MY3 has exceeded his bounds I would purposely give him another date and time for the audience and thereafter release my thoughts like a Tsunami wave in an ecclesiastic manner giving wide publicity particularly using alternate media like CT.

    Mahanayaka Thera of the Malwatte Chapter – people of all religions will respect you for turning down the President’s request to meet you. May this be a strong message to him and his cronies.

    Sirisena was always an orphan ……….. but less of an orphan among the UNP …….. than among the people he thinks are his friends

    Once he became the president ……… all the SLFP people who had discarded him got closer to him because of his position ………. and Sirisena thought he was naturally popular ……… his “popularity” was/is temporary just a tool to get rid of a tyrant

    Mark my words – not that I care one way or the other – Sirisena will soon find out (if he hasn’t already) what a gentleman Ranil is! . And who the Rajapakses are! ………. In spite all his monumental shortcomings as a “Lankan politician” ………. Ranil was different from all others because in human-relationships he always displayed class. ………. More importantly – many Lankans may not even grasp this – Ranil knows what class is!

    What’s unfolding for Sirisena is a Shakespearean Tragedy ………. and that’s as dramatic as I can get. :))


    Dionysian ………. pardon for the dots ……… it’s stream of consciousness, buddy………… good ol’ Proust, Joyce ………… like your namesake, you of all people should know that! :))

    This is what we need from the Sangha. The Mahanayaka of Malwatta has shown the nation the “right path” towards democracy and justice. I salute you Mahanayaka. Let the other religious leaders also follow this example.

    The RW sack, appointment of MR as PM and other recent political developments have caused anxiety to many lay-Lankans. Fortunately a restrained atmosphere prevailed.
    .
    Mahanayaka Thera of the Malwatte Chapter, Thibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera has pronounced the recent dissolution of the parliament as a breach of the basics of democracy. We are grateful for the neutral stand here. This should help us resolve the impasse.
    .
    Compare the above with the sermon by Ven Vendaruwe Upali Thero, the Anunayaka of the Asgiriya Chapter delivering an anusasana on the occasion of an almsgiving marking the 69th birthday of Gotabaya Rajapaksa. Ven Upali said that he (GR) should opt for military rule if this is what is necessary to build the country. Noting that Gotabaya is referred to as a Hitler, suggested that if that is the case he should be one and build the nation.

    “…………… who unabashedly violated the constitution by dissolving parliament, breaching the provisions of the 19th amendment to the constitution which he architected himself”

    So that’s that; the proof that president wisely managed to include a provision to dissolve the house when there’s a necessity has been created in an extraordinary manner.

    The prelate’s behavior is unexpected & wonder whether he’s trying to be a news maker.

    Very good move. One of the complaints the true Buddhists of this country has is the Chiefs give audience to every drug dealer, rapist, money-launderer. This slap is well deserved.
