The Misconception Of Buddhism In Sri Lanka & Its Misleading Paradigm Shift

By Rehan Derrick Fernando –

Rehan Derrick Fernando

Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to insight into the true nature of reality. Buddhism does not include the idea of worshipping a creator god, nor it speaks of any godly power in terms of religion; therefore, Buddha has never been presented himself as a god. The basic tenets of Buddhist teaching are straightforward and practical: nothing is fixed or permanent; actions have consequences; change is possible. So Buddhism addresses itself to all people irrespective of race, nationality, caste, sexuality, or gender. It teaches practical methods which enable people to realize and use its teachings to transform their experience, to be fully responsible for their lives.

However, does the same concept or the path of Buddhism exist in Sri Lanka? The answer is “No.” What exists in Sri Lanka is not the true formula of Buddhism but a misleading and misinterpretation of Buddhism. It has gone to the extent of dealing with dirty politics too. Many Buddhist monks mislead the whole nation in this country through these types of low-standard activities such as nationalism through the Sinhala-Buddhist majority, religious hate speech, the violent act imposed on minority communities, and so on. So, this misleading path is to be eliminated with the help of what Buddha preached and practiced. In this article, therefore, I aim to discuss and show the causes of the existing situation of the popular concept of Buddhism. Thus, I also aim to rediscover a paradigm shift to find a solution for this crisis called “misconception of Buddhism.”

A misleading popular concept in SL

One primary issue begins with popular religious concepts. This is the most misinterpreted area or rather concept as such. Buddhism is no more a religion though there appeared some religious characteristics. It is a philosophy or a way of life. Many Buddhists continue to worship, venerate, meditate, and do many other religious activities thinking that Buddhism is a religion. What Buddha discovered through his hard type of exercises was not a religion but a crystal-clear way of life.

Another problem in SL Buddhism begins with the limited knowledge of Buddhism and misinterpretation of Buddha’s life and teachings. Buddha’s central expression of siyalu sathvayo nidukvethva [may all beings be happy] has been misapprehended by many Buddhists in Sri Lanka. In these words, siyalu sathwayo, many Sri Lankan Buddhists have a narrow mentality of speaking only for Buddhists or only on behalf of Buddhists. This is the same mistake in Catholicism when it comes in terms of salvation. Buddha never had this narrow misconception, instead; he insisted and wished the goodness of all beings. That is very relevant when we understand self-forgetfulness [anatta] in the life of Buddha[1]. In my understanding, it is the primary expression of kindness to all humanity. In a multi-religious context, this expression has a massive sense of solidarity too. Yet how far Buddhists have understood this path is a question. One important point must be pointed out at this junction. This is all about Buddha’s praxis, in which we experience Buddha’s holiness [sara dharma]. This concept is not properly operative among Buddhists, whereas they are superfluously busy with mere ritualism. Rituals are not what decides a religion. Rituals only play an extra role to have an understanding of the essence of a religion. So, if Buddhism is not a religion, then what is the use of a discussion on ritualism regarding Buddhism? Does it even make sense? In Sri Lanka, the Buddhists even have not grasped the basic spirituality of metta, karuna, mudita, and upekkha [loving, kindness, compassion, and gladness]; they are the main operative powers of Buddha’s praxis. Sadly, where can we find these gentle forces toward one’s well-being; instead, we daily come across violence and hate speech that is being conducted by Buddhist monks.

Another observation would still help to defend my argument. Many Buddhists continue to worship in temples using different items such as fruits, cloth materials, candles, lamps, oil, flowers, milk, and food items. People spend thousands of money on these kinds of stuff for their worship. However, their concept of worship is not connected with service to humanity. Any type of worship, which is not connected with service to humanity is not worshiping at all. Buddha never promoted such types of worship in his way of enlightenment; whereas popular Buddhism provides or rather has introduced many unnecessary ways and means of worship. For an instance, how much fruits and milk are offered for some offerings in the temples when thousands are suffering from hunger and thirst.

When I was in Myanmar for the visitation of Pope Francis in 2017, one morning I saw a group of Buddhist monks meditatively walked barefoot in the town. It was around 6 am. People slowly began to offer whatever they had. Then only I realized that it was their daily practice of begging their daily meals. Unfortunately, in Sri Lanka, I hardly see these types of gestures[2]. Instead, monks send the menu for their meals.

Lesson from Buddhadāsa’s movement

As Thailand became a nation-state in the 19th century, primarily, there had been two political traditions: the strong-state and the well-being of people’s tradition. Eventually, Buddhism has become one of the most essential sources of political legitimation. Naturally, since it was a monarchical set up, the king’s duty was to protect and support the Sangha. And in return, the Sangha legitimated his rules. If the king is not supportive of Buddhism, it was considered a grave error. It so happened to king Narai [1656-88] as he ignored his duty as a defender of Buddhism and supported European Christians. This is the same structure that we find in Sri Lankan states too. Eventually, such a structure has gone into extreme forms and by today the Sangha exercise their supreme powers and authority in destroying the unity in the country. When religiosity is mixed with politics unnecessarily, this is what happens. Isn’t it clear as we study the fake democracy promoted through Christianity in many Euro-western countries?

Buddhadāsa’s movement is quite an impressive gesture to learn a lesson. He appears in reforming Buddhism, but his methodology is completely different. It is distinctively a radical movement; it challenged the doctrinal interpretation of the orthodoxy of Thai Buddhism. He was thoroughly critical of the hierarchical structure of the Sangha and its examination system[3]. Unlike the traditional monastic life in Theravada Buddhism, he insisted on physical labor together with laypeople. It was a matter of learning Dhamma through very simple daily works and actions. Therefore, Buddhadāsa did not set any list of rules for monks. However, in Sri Lanka, we do not find such practical movements to reform the prevailing system. The current system in the temples is so corrupted that it has already introduced a misinterpretation of Buddhism with the methodologies of dirty politics.

Buddha is being killed every day

I do not accept the lifestyle of Buddhist monks and many Buddhists in this country since their behavior has damaged the essence of the unity that existed in history. Buddha’s praxis is being killed in every corner in this country though bana is preached without single practice. Prof M. A. Nahum puts his ideology with inspired words just after the Jaffna library was burned. I think this poem with its radical words provides how Buddha was killed in history. It is as follows:

Last night

I dreamt

Buddha was shot dead

by the police,

guardians of the law.

his body drenched in blood

on the steps

of the Jaffna library

under cover of darkness

came the ministers.

“his name not on our list,

why did you kill him?”

they asked angrily,

“no sirs, no,

there was no mistake.

without killing

it was impossible

to harm a fly-

therefore…,” they stammered.

“Alright then

hide the corpse.”

the ministers return.

the men in civvies

dragged the corpse

into the library.

they heaped the books

ninety thousand in all,

and lit the pyre

with the Cikalokavadda Sutta.

thus the remains

of the compassionate one

were burnt to ashes

along with the Dhammapada. [4]

This is what happens even after this sad memory; this is the Buddhism that exists in this country. So, metta, karuna, mudita, and upekkha are absent in the hearts and minds of this nation. If the majority of Sinhalese authorities could burn 97,000 books in the Jaffna library and justify it through the hands of nationalism, what sort of metta, karuna, mudita, and upekkha are we preaching through bana and listening to them? This is nothing, but clear hypocrisy.

Misleading religiosity

Sri Lanka is one of the best examples of misleading religiosity. Buddha-dhamma is centered on selflessness but not selfishness. However, what happens in the temples and most of the institutions is nothing but the collection of money, properties, and exercise of power. The monks who are supposed to be simple in their daily moral conduct of life are leading a luxury life wearing pompous types of dress codes. The ordinary people lead a poor life by giving and offering all that they have to the temples. This is a misconduct and a clear practice of hypocrisy in Buddhism. How can the Sangha becomes the richest people while their people become poor? This is a contradiction. Unfortunately, ordinary people do not have enough education to understand this reality and take the due measures. Buddhist monks are exploiting and grabbing things from ordinary people in preaching dhamma of offering things to the temples. Are these real saradharma that we want to see in society?

Buddhism emphasizes a strong sense of liberation. It is the truth that makes someone free. So, selflessness is the best path to face this process of one’s own liberation. Within the premises of religiosity in Buddhism, especially in the popular act of Buddhism, this liberational aspect is not obvious. People are busy in temples with mere rituals and offerings of pujā. If Buddhism speaks of religiosity, Buddhist morality counts a lot in any society. Buddha did not teach or preach any abstract system of philosophy, rather he practiced with simple gestures so that people may follow the same and practice in all contexts. It does not mean any type of worship or fulfilling rituals in Buddhism rather it is the practice of Buddha-dhamma. In my opinion, all these types of unnecessary rituals lead people to darkness. So, the light that is expected through the practice of Buddha-dhamma is not in us or among us. If Buddhists want to deal with the concept of religiosity in Buddhism, lighting lamps and candles, and offering flowers are not the methods of creating such religiosities, but the exercising compassion toward all beings.

Conclusion

One can ask whether what exists in Sri Lanka in a form of Buddhism is true or not. There can be several ideas and answers. Whatever the opinion is, something however needs to be mentioned. We have been deviating from the real essence of Buddhism. There is no proper reformation taking place to recover this misleading path. Buddhism is not a way of life in Sri Lanka, instead; Buddhists have their interpretation for their gaining and living. Even if Buddha is born again here in this country, he will not be able to introduce any sufficient paradigm shift to get rid of this systematic error. Selfishness exists in Sri Lankan society to the extent of killing minorities, massacring innocents, governing through terrorism, collecting money and properties, and misinterpreting dhamma for personal agendas. How can the concept of liberation have space in a society of this nature? What happened to the public library in Jaffna in the 1980s happens every day without missing a letter of that incident.

    Religion is a crown people wear on their heads. Like Peacocks they are proud of it. It is very heavy and keep falling off. They want to pass it down as inheritance.
    Sinhalese are a tribe evolved from a group of people migrated from India some 2600 years ago.
    The crown also was received as a state gift from mother country.
    Now they are proud of it.
    It had been a difficult task keeping it balanced on head for 2500 years owing to various, incessant external incursions and intrusions.
    .
    True, if you shine a light on the crown it reflects compassion and tolerance .
    But the primate who wears it, being relatively small in comparison with other tribes around the globe, feels all the time insecure and reacts to external proddings and internal disturbances that threaten the group cohesion the same way all primates do.
    .
    May all living beings be happy and free from suffering.

    A great write up & I am sure food for thought for many Buddhists in SL who have been misguided & misinformed by ‘learned’ monks.

    Some years ago, on the occasion of the traditional 3rd month remembrance ‘dana’ of my father’s passing away, an aunt, who thought my 8 year old daughter was not receiving a ‘Buddhist education’ in UK, requested a senior monk to give her an overview of Buddhism. The monk started by saying about the significance of ‘dana’ & the most meritorious being the offerings to sanga. No doubt, the sanga, in theory, have no worldly belongings, having given up material life in search of nirvana, depend on the goodness of lay people for support, who in return, provide us with spiritual guidance, therefore, deserves our generosity, but when I see monks dabbling in politics, enjoying duty free vehicle permits from which they profit & worse, foul mouthed thugs in robes spreading hatred & intolerance, it seems the average Buddhist in SL has been brainwashed into thinking that more lavishly those in robes are looked after, the the greater the guarantee of a better after life or rebirth.

    SL Buddhists confuse race with religion, believing that the Sinhala race as the guardians of Buddhism, yet, seek favours from Hindu gods. Buddhist monks can be seen at any political rally or protest, contradicting their primary purpose in monkhood. Such ‘patriotic’ monks should leave their robes before embarking on matters they are so passionate about. Is it the monks or the ‘faithful’ Buddhists who are responsible for this hypocrisy?

    I frequent a Buddhist monastery in UK, originally, sponsored by the Thai govt. where the monks, predominately, Western, abide by the true teachings of Buddha. The monks do not handle money, the monastery’s finances being managed by trustees. Unlike the SL monks who are mainly Buddhists by ‘default’, these monks are converts who have a better understanding of Buddhism, which is lacking in SL monks.

      Raj-UK,
      As sons of Sinhale, the primary task is protecting the country from enemies. Religion is secondary. There should be a country for the religion to thrive. Sinhala Buddhists who provide food and other necessary things to monks expect them to play a role in protecting the country. There are two types of monks; ‘Gramawaasi’ (Village Based) and ‘Wanawaasi’ (Forest Based). ‘Gramawaasi’ monks play a multiple role. Who the hell are you to tell monks should leave robes to protect their country?

    Gosh! It’s not a philosophy but a path with pre-defined milestones. Sotapanna, Sakadagami, Anagami and Arihath. The Buddha was a Sinhala person. Even if the Queen of England wishes to seek salvation she will have to arrive in this island and learn the path taught by a Sinhalese. The history and his original teaching is being taught silently to a select few who know. The reason you are not informed is because there is a news blackout on this topic. The corrupt political monks you mention are blocking the news from reaching the general population. These monks are Sinhala but won’t accept the Sinhala Buddha. It like the Jews who won’t accept Jesus who was also Jewish. I think they must be influenced by someone or some govt. Not really sure but its weird and that’s how things are.

    I could not understand why he brought the burning of the Jaffna Library into this essay. This was an act by evil politicians. They may call themselves Buddhist but Mussolini called himself Christian. Does that mean that Christianity did not exist in Italy in his time? Why would the writer mention this event?

      Paul,
      Problem is many sinhala buddhists are supporting genocidal activities in the NE because they want the whole of the island to be a sinhala buddhist only state.
      That racist ampitiya sumana thero from batticaloa has a huge following, gets lot of donations and endorsements, even from sinhalese celebrities like lasith malinga and iraj weeraratne. This same monk is even on video saying the island is exclusive sinhala property and they can take land from minorities whenever they feel like it. Including threatening to kill a tamil government official.

        Humble,
        Sinhala Buddhists have not supported genocidal activities in the NE. On the contrary, it was Tamil terrorists that carried out genocidal activities to grab land belong to Sinhalayo in NE in order to create a separate State for the descendants of Dravida coolies who came to work for colonial rulers in Yapanaya. They did ethnic cleansing by slaughtering Sinhalayo who lived in NE to convert NE to a mono-ethnic area. It is Tamils who have blood in their hands; not Sinhala Buddhists.

          That is not disputed and agreed may (qualifying comment because of the word “worst”, because there may be skeletons in “other boxes and coffins” still unearthed to claim that laudable Crown) be the position.
          Catholic and Christian clergy, have all gone through a process of investigations and bring the culprits, even if they are priests of the churches, to account.
          Not that transparent and clear in the SL instance.
          Involvement of the DEEP STATE is very disconcerting.
          Reason for throwing under the carpet is “Buddhism in SL will be destroyed”!
          On the contrary, the converse is the truth. It would prosper and enlarge and permeate if investigated and cleared by independent disposition.

            OC it is not registering alone that will do. The Catholic priests and laity are centrally controlled by the Vatican. There are both advantages and disadvantages to this. Buddhist monks are not controlled centrally or in any other way, and they ought to be. Ideally there should be no need for any control, and dependence on the laity for everything would automatically exert control of their behaviour. Sadly this is not the case so the Government must cleanse the sangha as the rulers did in the past.

    Sounds like a guy working for a project to tarnish the image of Buddhist monks who have become a pain in the neck of people who find that they are unable to achieve their ulterior motives because of the intervention of monks. These dumbos try to create an image that Buddhist monks and Sinhala Buddhists are violent people who ill-treat minorities. This is very clear when he says “Sadly, where can we find these gentle forces toward one’s well-being; instead, we daily come across violence and hate speech that is being conducted by Buddhist monks.” This is a blatant lie. In Sri Lanka, Buddhist monks never preached or resorted to violence. It was Hindus, Christians and Muslims who resorted to violence against Native Sinhala Buddhists and it is a well known fact that few Hindu Pujaris, Christian clergy and Muslim Imams extended their support to terrorists.

      Read the following link,
      Buddhist Monk accused of Child Molestation exposed for ’Serial Rapist’ charges! (lankanewsweb.net)
      Whilst not preaching such criminal acts they seem to be ‘practicing it’ according to the above and covered up insidiously by the “Deep State”! That is what is disturbing and does not augur well for the future of Buddhism, in this country, which nurtured Buddhism for over 2600 years in South Asia.
      “Independent” Investigations must be completed “without let or hindrance” by the so called ‘Powers that be’ rather than stifling which gives strength to perpetrator’s to continue recommit the offence with impunity. Then it becomes a Scourge. Then the noble precepts of Buddhism would become extinct due to that laxity.
      This is the concern and must be addressed immediately to nip it in the bud, which will not make Buddhism extinct, but prosper for another 2600 years, if not more.

    Buddhist monks have played a vital role in protecting the country from Dravida (Demala) and European invaders. These invaders massacred monks, destroyed temples, burnt down valuable documents written by monks. During British rule, several monks went in front of the firing squads of British Army mostly consisted of Tamils and Muslims. Even Tamil terrorists belong to LTTE had a deep hatred of Buddhism and Buddhist monks and showed it in repeated attacks on temples, monks and worshippers. The three high profile attacks were the Dalada Maligawa, Sri Maha Bodhi and Arantalawa.
