Uduwe Dhammaloka Supports Casinos

Even as religious lobbies are agitating against the government’s proposed casino bill causing the president to withdraw the draft legislation for amendment, Government affiliated monk Uduwe Dhammaloka there has come out in support of the laws saying Sri Lanka must change with modern times

Uduwe Dhammaloka

He said he had no objection whatsoever to casinos operating in the country as long as Sri Lankans were not permitted to enter.

The monk told a weekend Sinhala newspaper that Sri Lanka needed casinos in order to woo tourists.

“We can’t ban tourists from participating in those activities,” he told the newspaper .

Dhammaloka Thero is a former member of the JHU and considered high flying Buddhist monk in Colombo running an affluent temple in Polhengoda that is heavily patronized by the Rajapaksa family. The temple is popular with cololmbo’s upper middle class devotees with Dhammaloka Thero charging heavily for light and sound systems whenever he is invited to alms givings and pirith ceremonies.

    Sri Lanka does many things that Sinhala buddhists should not because of the establishment of foreign cultures.

    Torturing and killing animals is another one.

      Have you gone from Dim Wit Jim Soft to pure nuts?

      Stupid Dim, the licenses are being issued by your own Sinhala/Buddhist leadership not by Tamil Diaspora, while MR, Gota, … and others giving lip service to Buddha Sasana.

      What are you doing in this forum when your service is urgently needed by the people.

      Take Weerawansa with you, stage a farce onto death comic opera.

      Be a man, go do something about it.

      Be a man, Be a Buddhist man,

      Where is your courage?

      Be a man, go on.

      Or be a man and send your women folks to fight it out with your political leaders.

        Jim Softy, As I understand the Buddha’s Teaching, he expected those who took on the Vows of a Buddhist Monk to treat all Beings alike, Even those of other Cultures and Religions.
        One does not have to call Oneself a Sinhala Buddhist, to be a Human Being.
        Here this ‘Man in Saffron Robes’ is asking us to send all foreigners (they are Human beings too), to Purgatory after stealing all their Money in Casinos.

        We should let the army run all the casinos the way they run vegetable stalls and hotels. The casinos should be managed by His Excellency Gotabaya Rajapaksa(my boss) and the croupiers should also be army personnel. Any gamblers caught cheating should be made to vanish via white vans. Snipers should be posted outside all the casinos and any gambler who wins big and attempts to leave the premises are traitors and should be dispatched with a single bullet to the head.

      soon it will be passed in parliament.

      One question to JimSOfty.
      Why did not MR put a casino complex in Hambanthota, why all in COlombo?
      just curious.!

        Hambanthottai people are poor but Maradana and Slave Island people are rich.

        Muslims are the majority in Maradana and Slave Island are misled Muslims not following true Wasab practices. This is the punishment for following a corrupted version of Saiva-Islam.

        Soon Srilankan Muslims will start worshipping the cow too!

        Please support Muslim Brotherhood Sri Lanka in Facebook. Thank you. May Allah (PBUH) protect all good Muslims (Wahabis) not the corrupted Muslims.

      Him Softy RE: Uduwe Dhammaloka Supports Casinos

      Is Uduwe Dhammaloka a member of BBS, Booru Balu Sena,Dokey -Ass Dog Force of Sinhala “Buddhists”?

      There is nothing about supporting Casinos in Buddha Dhamma.

      So, this Monk, must be another paid agent of the Maras, like many others including Wimal Weerawamsa aka Wavul Baluwamsa, with no principles.

      Another way to maintain the hegemony sand get commissions on sins and criminal activities.

      Sinhala Buddhists , including Sinhala Buddhist monks in action.

      “Dhammaloka Thero is a former member of the JHU and considered high flying Buddhist monk in Colombo running an affluent temple in Polhengoda that is heavily patronized by the Rajapaksa family. “

      So, this is the answer.

      If not patronized, i.e. not bought out by the Rajapaksa Family, this monk would not have sold his Buddhist Dhamma, the same way many voters were bought.

      See what the true Buddhist Monks are saying who have NOT been bought.

      Uduwe Dhammaloka thero is a true son of Sri Lanka like our King his majesty mahinda and HRH gota. Casinos got nothing to do with Buddism. We promote casinos brothels here to boost tourism. At the same time we would like to entertain our own Srilankan Sinhala public, not the elite Sinhala though. maybe a board carrying ‘Dogs and southern Sinhala only’ would be apropriate. Those who can afford could enjoy. Its high time to replace those ugly massage clinics with sopisticated brothels as well. Mr gota’s next move will be to develop a few redlight areas in the island. Its already in his agenda. One must appreciate the vision and the foresight of this wonderful family. Thus we can reduce the HIV manace across the country. Our Sinhala girls can make some handsome bucks for living. We will never recruit ugly Tamils and backward Muslims. We only want to upgrade our own kind. Iam sure BBS would promote it so well and Mr Champika, Ven Rathana, ven Sobitha, Ven Dhammaloka etc will give a good publicity for this. Dinamina, Daily Mirror, Daily News, Rupavahini, ITN etc plus famed writers such as Mr. mallinda seneviratne & darshani irathinavalli etc will give us their usual support and carry out a good propaganda work too.
      Viva Srilanka Viva Rajapaksa family!

    Next he will say he supports opening of brothels too.

    In Sri Lanka the Buddhist monks are insulting and demeaning the Buddhism by their unbuddhist activities – racism, violence, paedophilia, dirty politics, support for gambling and many more nasty activities.

    If this is what this Buddhist priest wants then why not have legal prostitution and drugs and make sure that no Sri Lnakan is involved. IT would be easy for Got-a-baya to monitor this with the vast army and budget he has and SRi Lanka will economically benefit from these activities. Way to go Thero!

          A croupier told me once that he doesn’t know what sect they belong but Muslims are the majority that you find in Sri Lanka casinos today. I do believe it for I know that Muslims as a sect involve in the drug and other associated business of the underworld.

          You are clueless. Don’t hide under Muslim name. Most people in maradana are poor and they struggle even for hand to mouth. Rogues are there in all sects. All the underworld in maharagama are Buddhists likewise. Again you don’t know what is Wahhabism. Don’t try to show off in things you don’t know.

      Why Ananda and Nalanda College also in Maradana. Gothami and many other girls school too if you want to think Maradana deserves one, then include these names too. Why you refer only to Zahira as though it is only School in Maradana? Your intent of causing a racial slurs on Muslims is quite evident, and only adds to the rot of your lot. Your name itself is identified with a tsunami affected nuclear wasteland, devoid of life. Ideally connotes your personality.

    Gambling is an activity which adds no value. For some one to win, many have to lose. In addition profits go to Mr Packer with a tax holiday of 13 years to boot. Of course the hidden cost of the bribe has to be bourne by the losers. If gambling is bad for locals is it good for foreigners? Maybe foreign tourist have to be ripped off for the regime to prosper.

      “…In addition profits go to Mr Packer with a tax holiday of 13 years”

      What is Sri Lanka getting out of this? Rich Tourists do not come to Sri Lanka to stay in Colombo to gamble. They can gamble at Casinos in their own Lands. They come for a different Experience outside of Colombo.

      Mr Packer is a Business Man who knows on which side his bread is buttered.
      Is he at liberty to pack up his Casino and go elsewhere when the 13 years is up, Or even before?

      This Government does not think beyond the immediate profits they are hoping to collect.

    When hardship strike the door as faced by this Nation, leave Religion out, for one to survive has to lift one’s dress. So praise the Lord! and raise the cloth.

    Now the issue is between Tamils/Muslims and Sinhala Buddhists, but very soon our society will be a mix of all races in the world. How about that?

    I fail to understand that there are foolish still in this society who venerate this type of Bugger. As for me nope!, not even beside my corpse as I do not need anyone’s blessings, especially from these so called Buddhist Priests, to trek the journey of Samsara.

      Living in a cold basement in the UK, I know you endue real hardships. So, it’s not unusual you visualize what you experience is the norm here. I do not know about tomorrow, but right now, we Sri Lankans enjoy the best of times. And that’s a fact.

      What more to say than this year’s Prosperity Index, compiled by London-based Legatum Institute, which also ranks nations according to wealth and well being factors, has placed Sri Lanka at 60th place moving up eleven places in overall Prosperity since 2009.

      So, praise the Lord! and venerate Rajapakse you bugger.

    Recently I had to meet the Grama Sevaka of Narahenpita.It is now next to a buddhist temple called Alan Mathiniyarama Temple in Polhengoda . When I drove up the extremely narrow lane I was happy to notice the big car park of the temple which was empty at the time. I thought I could conveniently park my car there. But to my horror as I drove in a Policeman in uniform appeared and said that I could not park there. I was flabbagasted that a Policeman is on duty 24 hours there to guard a car park in a buddhist temple.

    As a Buddhist I believe that the Buddha renounced all material possessions on his path to wisdom. He gave up a kingdom , his family and every conveniences of life then available.Had he known that in the 21 Century there would be buddhist priests denying the use of their car park to the public he would have thought twice about sending buddhism to this country full of hypocrisy. Temples are not private property. In fact on further research I found out that this temple land was donated to the temple by a white lady who had lived in that area in the early 20 century. Hence the name.

    I also found out that since of late there is a lot of armed policemen and soldiers who come there on the pretext that the President’s family are regulars to the temple. In the mind of the priests does this mean that the rest of us are behind the President’s family in our search for the truth and adherence to buddhist teachings? Is the President and his family greater Buddhists than the not so powerful and much poorer people of this society ?

    I think this so called priest should be ashamed to call himself a buddhist priest. In my view he understands nothing of the Dhamma. He is just a power broker bending in two before whoever has power or money. Shame on him .

      “I think this so called priest should be ashamed to call himself a buddhist priest.”

      You are wrong, don’t blame the priest for he is only exercising his power not as wise man but a person who has been elevated to a position by stupid Sinhala/Buddhists who get nothing valuable in return.

      In essence the Sinhala/Buddhists are responsible for their own predicament.

      The prevailing trend that you would have failed to notice is that multiple centres and individuals are competing for power, particularly the unelected ones.

      More Buddhist Monks are sadly a law unto themselves. Of course we have the good learned and pious monks too, but are rare and far between. They don;t understand the pain of the poor, sick and needy. Constantly in competition to attract the most attention, be it by being controversial like in instances of heated debates. They are not kept in their place, but roam all over and interfere into everything, claiming their rights to do so. What a shame we have mixed politics and religion, a deadly cocktail which is bound to explode with a bang.

    Actually I fully agree with Mr. Uduwe Dammaloka as He said he had no objection whatsoever to casinos operating in the country as long as Sri Lankans were not permitted to enter.

    I think we should suggest that Gaanu 5 Bebadu Nanasara Balukaya, Rawana Balukaya, Sinhala Rawaya, Mr. Dammaloka and others be appointed as “Casino Inspectors” to see whether they are playing Casino according to the “Mahindagama”

    In every Casino center they should exhibit “Deshapremi Casino” in big letters and “No Local Beef” in Small letters.

    In our Village there are some people who are preparing to file a Fundamental Rights petition to Supreme Court if the Govt. decided to ban the Casino for Locals. They say according to Governor, Ajith Niward Cabral now we are a Developed Country and Income per person is very high and therefore banning Casino for Locals is not fair.

    No Casino center should recruit Tele and Film Actresses as they are coming under the purview of Minister Keheliya Rambukwella.

    Gaanu 5 nanasara and other custodians of Pure Sinhala Buddhism should encourage their “Upasakammala” to find Jobs in Casino Centers to increase Pure Sinhala Buddhists Population.

    Uduwe Adharmaloka had a mini bar in his bed room when he lived in a temple at Kollupitiya and when the chief priest of the temple came to know about it Adharmaloka was chased away from the temple. He had an abundance of female supporters, including old women, who supported him thereafter. He is a drunkard and a disgrace to true Buddhists. He should not be tolerated in any part of this Buddhist country and should be banished from this Buddhist country.

    Casinos are not new to Lanka, R Premadasa brought Joe Sim and started the business, there were Thai prostitutes operating on Galle Road, known as Comfort Cops; somehow this led to many problems in the Govt. and later culminated in Premadasa killing Ranjan Wijeratne.

    This Thero who is supporting Casino speaks about country’s economy may be he is right, what is wrong in supporting something that can boost our economy, if other prominent Theoros can eat sumptuous Dhana from Casino magnate(s), this Thero also has the right to grab something, let him enjoy!!!

    A Korean today alleged that a female escort who accompanied him to a five-star hotel had robbed him of Rs.510,000 which he had won at gambling in a Casino in Colombo and an additional Rs.300,00 which he had with him. He told police that on October 27 he had won Rs.510,000 from gambling and later asked his driver to provide him with a woman. Later, four Sri Lankan women had met him at a night club in Kollupitiya. The Korean had selected one of the women and taken her to the hotel around 2.30 a.m.

    ******** Casino & prositution “female escort* is good politics …

    Government affiliated monk Uduwe Dhammaloka there has come out in support of the laws saying Sri Lanka must change with modern times

    you can engage with your wife’s and sisters in the “world’s oldest” business… Now you do not have to send the thousands to the Middle East, to earn the petro $ to finance SL life style: Govt ministers, Cars etc
