Video: I Was A Heart-Breaker: Gnanasara

General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), Galagoda Atte Gnanasara in an interview has confessed that he has been quite a heart-breaker – both pre and post monkhood.

BBS GnanasaraIn an interview with the Sinhala mainstream newspaper Maubima, Gnanasara while reminiscing his memories has stated that he has been wooed by the opposite sex since the ripe old age of 12.

“I have had many girlfriends,” he has told the interviewer, “I was a very talented singer. So I was very much involved in activities organised by the school literary society. My talents used won me the attraction of so many girls who would shower me with toffees, chocolates and tea. . .”

Gnanasara has gone on to state that even presently, despite being a monk he has been pursued by young women and has faced extremely uncomfortable situations as a result.

Recalling one such incident he has stated,”I remember in 2004, when I was involved with the Ama Wessa program during the formation of the Hela Urumaya, one day I realised I was being followed by a very young girl whom I had never met before. She kept following me and staring at me. After sometime I informed the elders about her and it was then I was told that she was following me as a result of the mental anxiety she was undergoing due to her feelings for me. . .She had fallen in love with me and it seems she had said that she cannot live without seeing me although we had not ever even spoken to each other.”

However, he has asserted that he has been able to mange several such situations due to following the words of Buddha as they have been instructed to think of females who pursue them as their own sisters, mothers, daughters etc.

In the same interview, he had confessed to having a weakness for perfumes and fragrances as well.

Meanwhile, he has stated that he has never consumed alcohol or smoked as a layperson responding to a query during the interview. However, Colombo Telegraph revealed how he had pleaded guilty to nine charges including hit-and-run, drunk driving, speeding, driving without a valid licence and failing to report the accident filed against him by the Grandpass Police in 2000.

    HEY GUYS, LET US ALL TAKE A STEP BACK CHECK OUR FAITHS OUT AND GET OUR FACTS RIGHT ABOUT THE DIFFERENT RELIGIONS. IT IS THE SO CALLED RELIGIONS THAT’S CREATING ALL THE PROBLEMS TODAY. WE ALWAYS TRY TO BLAME OTHERS AND GOD. LET US CHECK OUR OWN SELF OUT AND THINK CLEARLY. PUT THE RELIGIONS ASIDE AND TRY HAVING A ONE ON ONE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD…. HE WILL SHOW YOU WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG. GOD IS ‘LOVE’ AND HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN FORGIVE YOU. WE ALL HAVE SINNED AND HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF HIS GLORY.
    I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED TO READ MOST OF THE COMMENTS. LETS FORGET ABOUT THE RELIGIONS AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND MOVE FORWARD. LIFE IS SHORT.
    GOD BLESS YOU ALL
    A TRUE CHRISTIAN!

    It appears the women who pursue this wonderful catch, disguise themselves as interviewers or members of the public happening to walk beside him. I believe him when he says, he has never consumed alcohol. However, the Colombo Telegraph revelation how he had pleaded guilty to nine charges including hit-and-run, drunk driving, speeding, driving without a valid licence and failing to report the accident filed against him by the Grandpass Police in 2000 were all lies. Shame on you Colombo Telegraph.
