Marketing Buddhist Monk Pitiduwe Exposed

Controversial Buddhist monk Pitiduwe Siridhamma Samantha Badra claims that he used the negative publicity against him to become enormously famous.

In a video posted on youtube, the monk claims that he himself had used a photograph in which he was captured wearing a t-shirt to print posters to increase his fame.

The monk has encountered a storm of controversy over the picture and other allegations made by several women that he had fathered their children. One woman filed a case in court against the monk but the case was dismissed for lack of evidence.
