Sirisena, Dogs, Pimps, Whores, And Dalai Lama

By Jagath Asoka

Before we talk about dogs, pimps, and whores in Sri Lanka, Mr. Maithripala Sirisena, here is your first spiritual and geo-political challenge: Invite Dalai Lama, not as a political figure, but as a pilgrim to visit Anuradhapura, Dambulla, Kandy, and Polonnaruwa—our sacred four corners of Sri Lanka. If you are concerned about our Chinese masters, here is our excuse: we are the protectors of Theravada Buddhism; Dalai Lama is just another pilgrim. After all, we are a Buddhist nation, and these are our hallowed Buddhist sites; besides, Buddhist monks play a significant role in all aspects of our lives in Sri Lanka.

If it is infeasible and politically suicidal, make arrangements through a non-political group to invite Dalai Lama, perhaps just to have some Ceylon tea! Dalai Lama visits New York and other cities often, without any official invitations. He has been a guest speaker at many colleges. Imagine Dalai Lama giving a lecture at the BMICH. I don’t know whether it would be equivalent to spitting in the faces or licking the faces of those who built and donated the BMICH.

Any living person with a modicum of cerebral material in his or her skull can find out how the Chinese government tried to cow and intimidate Obama and David Cameron. They did not budge. Despite objections and warnings from China, both Obama and Cameron met with Dalai Lama.

Dalai Lama

Even though it was done for the wrong reasons, I am delighted that Pope Francis has visited Sri Lanka. Now is the time to invite Dalai Lama. Why should we invite Dalai Lama? He is not a “god” or a “living Buddha,” just a Buddhist monk who would genuflect without any pride, clasping his palms together, turning every person, momentarily, into a living deity, as if by some divine afflatus, even though in reality some of them are worse than the devil incarnate on this heavenly earth. Can you show me a single Buddhist monk of his caliber and disposition in Sri Lanka?

Dalai Lama is not one of the beefy Buddhist monks that appear on TV: In Sri Lanka, some monks who engage in politics are just beefy thugs, wearing yellow robs, manhandling other Buddhist monks and clergy. Our mad dogs allowed these beefy bulls to behave like some schizophrenic thugs. This kind of behavior is an affront to our claim, belief, and pride as Buddhists who are supposed to be the guardians of Theravada Buddhism. I am not generalizing and saying that all Sri Lankan Buddhist monks are yellow-robed thugs, just only a very few who continue to wreak havoc in our society. Are we going to tolerate this kind of conduct by bulls? Not anymore!

Mr. Sirisena, you know very well why your predecessor did not invite Dalai Lama—the one who bribed our professors, judges, artists, writers, lawyers, and clergy—the pimps and whores of our nation; these avaricious, power-hungry calque of sycophants and brownnoses worshiped your predecessor as if he were God incarnate; but now, he keeps hanging in every lamppost in Sri Lanka, showing his white-teeth, grinning helplessly at the mangy dogs that urinate on him. How many billions did he steal from our innocent Sri Lankans to hang himself on every lamppost so that now the mangy dogs can urinate on him? I have been told that dogs guard their territory, especially, the lampposts where they can urinate freely, without being watched by grinning perverts.

Well, dogs are the leitmotif of our political landscape in Sri Lanka. In a nutshell, the political situation in Sri Lanka is similar to a bucket of dog dung. Imagine a bucket of dog dung made by a gang of rabid dogs, while they were raping the Surabhi of our nation for ten years. Do you think, miraculously, you can turn this bucket of dog dung into milk by just adding a few drops of milk? The only way to make this happen is by pouring milk continuously, but the problem is there is no milk in Sri Lanka. When the mad dogs raped the Surabhi of Sri Lanka, surrounded by a claque of brownnosed pimps and whores, having orgies for ten years, she stopped producing milk. Now, she cries for justice; this traumatic event has made her barren. The mad dogs would not give up because their voracious appetite for rape is insatiable, and pimps and whores from every echelon are still supporting them.

Mr. Sirisena, what is your strategy? How are you going to manage these bloodthirsty, rabid dogs, whores, pimps, and sycophants? If you do not, soon they will devour you and would not even leave your bones. That is the political reality is Sri Lanka. So wake up and gird your loins because they are not going to play by the rules, because for them, rules do not matter. There is only one choice: It is either you or them. If you think this is going to be a peaceful, smooth transition and ride, wake up from your slumber state. Remember the mad dogs are not like Mandela. If they pull a knife, your better be ready to pull a bazooka. I am not promoting violence; just remember Roosevelt’s Big Stick policy: “Speak softly, and carry a big stick.” I do not believe in vengeance because it is a personal act. I do believe in justice because it is non-personal. Without justice, we will end up in perdition. Without justice, a nation cannot flourish and survive. Do you have an intelligent, forethought, and decisive plan of action to obviate a likely coup and assassinations? I am not sure that in Sri Lanka, given our bloody history, just a Big Stick would work. I know that you are not that naïve, gullible, and namby-pamby. But, sometimes, it helps to appear that way. It might save you in the long run. If you don’t survive, Sri Lankans are doomed. How are you going to survive when you are surrounded by a bunch of mad dogs? Remember what happened in Troy. Those who are joining you now are your “Trojan Horse.” You need your own Odysseus to match the cunning unexpected attacks of these rabid dogs. Their plan is obvious. So, do not trust the horse! Whatever it is, I fear the grinning dogs, even when they come with gifts.

Our nation was gang raped for 10 years; it took a while for people to realize it, because the dogs that raped the nation, simultaneously, played “the patriots’ game,” and did the raping in the dark, at first; then, they became so arrogant and continued raping the nation in public.

Now, the nation behaves like a rape victim with all its symptoms; even just an innocent glance can be construed as an attempt to rape. Mr. Sirisena, if you ignore what people are saying, I am certain that you will be punished not only for your peccadilloes but also for your predecessor’s crimes. Ask your children, friends, and family to behave, because people are not going to tolerate any more; and the rabid dogs who are around you will devour you! What are you going to do with these rabid dogs and sleazy sycophants? There are not enough kennels in Sri Lanka.

The moment Maithri was elected, people started calling him “Your Majesty,” “Mr., sir, President,” “Your Excellency,” etc.” For lack of a better phrase, I would say, “Give us a freaking break, you sleazy sycophants! Stop this nonsense!” It is the same old story, just different characters and masks.

Note: This article is not about real rape victims, dogs, pimps, and prostitutes. Dogs are lovable until they became rabid. People do not become pimps and prostitute to be glamorous; they do it because of hunger and starvation; often, to feed their children. I empathize with their circumstances and the choices that they have made for survival. This article is about the people that we revere and admire: professors, judges, artists, writers, lawyers, and clergy. When these professionals start pimping and prostituting for personal gains, jobs, and perks, knowing in their own hearts that the money and the perks that they receive in various forms come from the collective pocket our entire nation. For some Sri Lankans, it is not a crime to steal. To me, metaphorically and literally, it is similar to raping our nation.

Thank you, Rocco Panangadan, for your suggestions and comments.

    The Dalai Lama has been asking permission to visit Sri Lanka for many years but no Government has had the courage to invite him. Yet they allow the Balu Sena to invite someone like Ahsin Wirathu.

    The Dalai Lama has expressed a desire to see the Sri Maha Bodhi and the Tooth Relic but it has not been permitted. He has said that he will be the last Dalai Lama. So sad.

      It is a silly idea to venerate Dalai Lama. He is anathema to what Theravada Buddhists in Sri lanka believe in.

      According to Buddha’s preachings, no one is ‘borne’ to be king or Brahmin or any thing other than just another naked being who will live, suffer and die. Only our actions will make us heros or villains, and go to higher worlds or hell accordingly.

      But Dalai Lama is supposed have gained his position by birth. It is “Miccha Dhitti”! An obstacle to seeing the truth.

      To add to that, he is being exploited by the Americans as a tool to ‘contain’ China and to promote Tibetan separatism.

      We don’t need to buy in to his wrong vision, or his separatism. But we should try to preach the Theravada philosophy to him to help him see the truth of Buddha’s noble bilief system.

        We don’t have to venerate him. He is a kind and compassionate man who has always spoken for peace and forgiveness. That is reason enough to invite him.

        He is a greater human being than some (but not all) of our lazy, ceremonious monks who understand nothing of the Buddha’s teaching and have turned the Sangha into another comfortable career path.

          We must respect him , because He is a leading monk of Buddhism followers.
          as a Buddhist and peaceful human being,
          we must allow him to,
          Invite him to visit Sri Lanka and
          Pay homage to Scared Places.
          If Not, As Buddhism says, WE ARE NOT BUDDHISTS In Our DEEDS,

        “But Dalai Lama is supposed have gained his position by birth.”

        Lay monk: You speak in isolation! He is a simple Lama not a rebirth Rinpoche’s who teach at their schools- from the break of dawn to late in the night 10pm- its all chanting and yoga exercises (tantric)- go see for self and enjoy the tea and the simple meal of yak meat soup (Tibet even grass does not grow)You eat what you get.

        Main thing is Dalai could never be purchased even with gold. Don’t forget the are Chinese and China has 42 ethnic’s with different languages but has been simplified to Mandarin by force- `Weretiger` ancient Hun Chinese like the `werewolf` mahawamse.

        On the contrary Teravada monks into politics and commissions and pedo.

          Why is that British, American and other agents of the West always taking an enormous interest on the “opressed” in countries they want to undermine? As it is done here about China. Why don’t they talk about the “Red Indians” and the First Citizens of Canada, but keeps crying about oppression everywhere else?

          Will it be correct to say they are shedding “crocodile tears”?

          Keep counting the minorities in China, you might find some more – those with a slightly different angle of the eye, perhaps. Thay should have their own region too!

            Western Buddhism is about “mindfulness” that is the one ingredient that is appealing to an obese west.

            “Lay Monk” You sound more and more like the Gandasara Thera we are familiar with. The Dalai Lama was born into it and never claimed any divine powers for himself. He is much revered by all faiths for his humanity, except perhaps your version of Buddhism that appears corrupt. He is generally responsible for the success and promoting the real version of Buddhism in the West.

        Never mind his pedigree, but this spiritual leader has done more to spread the word of Buddhism throughout the world than all of our indigenous monks.

      Primary is to work on reconcliation of the nation and secondary to go for any kind of state or reglious leaders to the country. Right at the moment, all supporters of MR irrespective of his records levels of high abuses, rally round him to get back. He should be defeated in all court cases so that this man would never be able to get back to lanken politics. In that way, he could stay somewhat decent as a repay for his contributions to the elemination of LTTER terror in 2009.
      But the investigations should be carried out unbiased manner even if he had been the predecessor of MS. At the time, as some commentators have already put – MR won the election in 2010, he treated the war hero SF by using all unethical, unconsittuaitonl means. So, MR should be very happy today that none of MS supporters attacked him that abusive manner, in the same country with same folks.

      Dalai Lama is in exile in Hindu India from 1959, that is more than 50 years Hindus in India have been looked after Buddhist Dalai Lama. As Paul said Dalai Lama expressed his willingness to visit SL couple of times, but our old non-Buddhist monks in Asgiriya refused. China story is very recent one. How many Zen Mahayana Buddhist masters visited SL?

      RE: Sirisena, Dogs, Pimps, Whores, And Dalai Lama

      Yesn Sri Lanka was controlled and Gocerned by Medamulana Mahinda Rajapaksa, MaRa, MaRa Dogs, Pimps, Whores.

      The Did not want Dalai Lama or Buddha Near The, by order of MaRa, Mara.

      Lord Buddha – The Great Battle (The Life of Buddha) Against MaRa and won. The people of Lanka now end the MaRa suffering.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUiw4IVPU3M

      Now that MaRa and his Mara dupporters BBS are defeated, Ven. Dalai Lama, can visit Sri Lanka,

      Published on Oct 5, 2013

      The calm and compassionate face of the Buddha is known all over the world. Buddha was a spiritual teacher of ancient India whose ideas on freeing mankind from sorrow and suffering form the basis of Buddhism. Buddha was born in the sixth century BC., into a royal family. Known as Siddhartha, he realized that human life was short and full of sadness. He found out a path to Enlightenment and spiritual fulfillment. He was then known as the Buddha,which means “Enlightened One”. For the rest of his life, the Buddha travelled great distances teaching people about the “MIDDLE PATH”, the way to end to suffering. He taught the four Noble Truths of suffering, cause of suffering, end of suffering, and the Path to do that. Buddhism offers hope and access to spiritual understanding and satisfaction to everybody. Throughout the world today, people still follow the teaching of the Buddha.
      Mara, the temptor, distrubs Siddhartha’s meditation in many ways but is defeated. Enlightenment dawns and Siddhartha becomes the BUDDHA and teaches everyone the way to end all suffering.

    Dalai Lama spent many decades built a beautiful image of Buddhism in the Western World.

    We have built a blood thirsty Moronic Image of Buddhism. We are the shining example of the failure of Buddhism.

    Why would the great Lama want to undo ruin the reputation of Buddhisms by visiting the Island of Buddhist Morons ?

    The previous regime did a disservice to Buddhism and it’s followers by refusing the Dalai Lama to step into this Buddhist nation and pay respects to his Great Teacher. Shame.
    The mere fact that they did this to please their Chinese masters and financiers, is even more disgraceful.
    This country should be open to respected and peaceful leaders in the world, especially spiritual leaders.

    Inviting a scumbag like Wirathu was an insult to this nation. Having him here, and showering love on a despicable hate monger, who is responsible for the attacks on innocent people, was the biggest insult we could have shown to the Dalai Lama, a man of peace. We have sent him the wrong message.
    While other nations respect and welcome him, our country simply showed the world, that we have got
    our priorities all wrong.

    Don’t mix up religion with politics. If Dalai Lama wishes to visit The tooth relic and Sri maha Bodhi, the govt should allow him to fulfil his wishes as a religious Buddhist leader, irrespective of his political leaning

    This pilgrimage should be un official one and should be under taken when the present govt. settles down and not now. Every one knows,that he is old and granting suck request is a traditional habit in our land

These are the same people who stood by doing nothing when unmentionable crimes were committed around them, by one family!! Let us hope and pray that they have learnt their lesson and has turned a new leaf.

    They should have the courage to be impartial in their judgement irrespective of race, religion, relationship, friendship etc.

    He is first and foremost a Pilgrim. I am sure he has an Indian Passport any Indian is able to visit Sri Lanka as a visitor he does not need an Invitation to come. We should not stop him and if needed no official should receive him to satisfy our Chinese Financiers some countries just do that.

    Does this “writer” know what real Buddhism is? Looks like another pseudo “journalist” trying to make his mark under “yahapalanaya”… Dalai Lama is a cunning politician, and is in no way suited to represent Buddhism.

    When China annexed Tibet by force in 1959,and commited murders and rape of monks and laity, (which are ongoing to this day, and are being protested against by self-immolation), leaders of this nation which has a constitution ‘protecting’ Buddhism, kept silent.
    So they did again, when monks were slaughtered in Burma – and many of our monks went there for ‘higher ordination’ and to accept grandiose titles.
    Now, the Dalai Lama who practises pure Buddhism, is not welcome.

    What price hypocrisy?

    I think most of the comments about Buddhism are misplaced and misinformed.

    I challenge any one of the previous commentators to list why we have Asgiriya, Malwatte and Ramanya nikayas, without access to wikipedia.

    The Buddha never advocated for clergy, and he certainly did not advocate for politics. In fact he LEFT politics and governance.

    Entering priesthood is supposed to be a new chapter in one’s life with an absolute focus on the spiritual and emotional development of oneself and thereby influencing one’s environment.

    In Sri Lanka priesthood has become another profession like that of a politician. A means to an end.

    Any of you can write until the sun rises tomorrow but the next time you ‘visit’ your temple, see what your eyes show, not what your brains wants you to see. However we might have to wait until the next Poya!

    Dr Jagath,

    WHAT IS YOUR POINT THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO MAKE?

    The ONLY THING THAT SEEMS WORTHWHILE IN YOUR CONTRIBUTION IS :

    ” Mr. Sirisena, if you ignore what people are saying, I am certain that you will be punished not only for your peccadilloes but also for your predecessor’s crimes. Ask your children, friends, and family to behave, because people are not going to tolerate any more “.

    THE PRESIDENT SEEMS TO HAVE MANY PROBLEMS TO PUT RIGHT – SO SPEAK UP IF YOU HAVE SOLUTIONS .

    DONT COMPOUND THE PROBLEMS BY BEING UNSPECIFIC IN A RUDE MANNER !

    Dr. Ashoka,

    Thank you so much for taking this initiative to invite His Holiness the Dali Lama to Sri Lanka. I was dreaming for last 30 years to see that day.

    He is a great inspiration to the whole world. Not only to Buddhists. Sri Lanka cannot be bullied by China any more. They are the biggest human right violators in the World.
    Sri Lanka has a new beginning and lets make a big initiative to invite His Holiness.

    I remember in 1999, Dali Lama initiated the event called “World Festival of Sacred Music” The main organizer was Dr. Judy Mitoma at the University of Los Angeles California. This event was to bring the blessing to the new millennium with world spiritual music.

    We were Part of that team. We had a concert with Sri Lankan Buddhist Spiritual musics at a Jewish Synagogue in Los Angles. This never happened before.
    There were 60 venues and the whole world community participated in this event.
    Only Dali Lama can do this.
    I admire the new Pope and he has the qualities of Buddha and Jesus Christ.He is an inspiration to the whole world. No doubt about it. He is making changes to the Catholic beliefs.He is a great reformer who possess a humble beginning.
    New President and the Sri Lankan community did a marvelous job of receiving him.

    Once again, Dr. Ashoka, thank you and let’s work on this.

    Dr Jagath Asoka is back again in his real form. The heading and the substance below are all exciting and bears the true situation in the country. Enjoyed reading Dr.JA’s each and every line, contents and his arguments.
    There is no doubt that the country is in a political mess, in a fluid form and not firm enough yet. His advice to Prez MS is necessary and he is facing many hurdles, sabotage, assassination attempts etc., Hope the group chose wise people and not all the scums who are trying to join the winners for their selfish or other tactical reasons. May god help him form a stable government! The nation is just beginning to emerge from an ugly,violent,dirty past of 10 years.

    Our country needs enough blessing and help from all well wishers, to bring back the lost life, peace and prosperity. Dalai Lama is a messenger and not a politician. Him coming and blessing the battered nation and the people would be nice, just like what the pope is doing.
    For some reasons, Christians, Hindus, and many other religious people love and like him probably for his honesty, peace loving nature, simple way of life and belief. He’s venerable, respected by many, unlike Wirathu or Aththe Gnanasara. Dalai Lama is a wonderful soul in every aspect, a true Buddhist and Lanka should welcome him without any bias. Buddhist Tibet lost a god like son and Hindu India got a peace and mercy Avatar. Chinese arrogance, brutality, rape of the country and annexation, chased him out. Buddha was born a Hindu..what’s the big deal or difference. It’s all the same to me !

    Thank you Dr Asoka and please keep on writing.

    I can’t find any reference to the Theravada vs Mahayana divide, that inviting the Dalai Lama will rekindle.

    Forgive me if I have missed something !

    This is another huge inhibiting factor and is as important as China in influencing the decision.

    It is indeed ironic that the pope has visited this Buddhist country, but not the Dalai Lama.
    His Holiness The Dalai Lama is the formost ambassador of Buddhism in the world.
    It is time to put decency ahead of corruption and geopolitical sleaze.
    Please invite His Holiness to SL
