    The following article in the daily mirror may explain the recent phenomenon of BBS, RB, SR etc. The need for sex is natural and if this instinct is denied, may give rise to anti-social behaviour. This applies only to people who are not spiritually advanced enough to control their primeval instincts.

    Why monkeys misbehave? – A dearth of female monkeys, environmental damage and the shrinkage of their natural habitat have caused male monkeys to misbehave, said Dr Suhada Jayawardene, a veterinary surgeon attached to the Wildlife Conservation Department.

    This has caused them to attack and bite human beings and also damage property, as exemplified by three monkeys that had behaved boisterously in Nugegoda, Matara and Weligama, and been caught and brought to the Wildlife Conservation Department premises in Battaramulla.

    The Wildlife Department officers said that they had received similar complaints bout another two monkeys as well. They that once the monkeys were tamed and no longer hostile, they would be released to the jungle.(Shantha Seneviratne)

    This photograph made me shudder in revulsion of what has become of Theravada Buddhism as we knew it.

    There is nothing wrong with hugging another person but if you are an ordained monk living in accordance with the Vinaya, which should be your code of conduct….this is unbelievable.

    Surely it is time for a Sanshodanaya of the Buddha Sasanaya ? All rulers of the Country who continue to dodge this issue are contributing to the ultimate demise of Buddhism…..think about it !

    SHAME ON COLOMBOTELEGRAPH!!!!!

    is this now a gossip paper? paparazzi on Buddhist monks? the moral police? How is this news of any concern?

    There are many who consider CT a biased media outlet working on an anti Sri Lanka/Sinhala agenda. Don’t feed that fire by publishing these petty stories that are not news worthy. Aren’t there enough real problems to focus on?

    All these idoits comments here try to show this incident as something wrong with Buddhism

    when lord buddha’s time also there were so many monks did wrong things , after the death of LB, 700 years later had to hold the first Damma Sangayana due to the behaviour of some monks therefore that does not mean Buddism is wrong

    Can anyone dare to come forward and tell in the history either Cristian, Muslim or Hindu preist were not behaved wrongly.

      All monks preach bana to others, but are not living by example. They ae now telling Sinhalese families to bear more children, but they don’t do and show by example. Instead they claim to be pure and celibate, and pretend they don’t have carnal feelings. They tell others not to drink as it is sin, but they enjoy the best of women and wine in their temples. They tell others not to speak lies, but they are the biggest liars, and we know that after what their verbal attacks on Muslims. Sorry but not all monks, but BBS/SR/RB and JHU. They have lost all our respect for them. We don’t know whom to trust. For us they are all the same.

        Every Body Preaching Bana,

        And Not Only Lord Buddha, But Many other Philosophers ,Prophets Like JESUS, Mohaomaed And His followers also Preached BANA,

        Now Politicians also Started to preach Bana to their fellow Citizens and Cheat to them, doing what ever they like, totally against their Bana.
        and It is up to our responsibility to believe. follow them or respect them.
        This is one of the many incidents and most are not found but we better should ignore to avoid for the .

        this is not a big issue for us, but for the Chief of Sangha Sabaha to take action.
        may be they also do these and more on the sly, Hiding behind the saffron Robes.

        But We have To consider that There are Few Buddhist Monks Who are following the Teachings of Lord Buddha and Live Accordingly.
        At least, They will help to save the Buddhism .

    This is not acceptable at all. He’s a Buddhist monk. Buddhist monks have certain rules to obey when they live a monks life. No matter where they live or what things they are involved in Buddhist monks cannot touch females. If a monk do not obey that he shouldn’t be in a robe !!! This is an insult to all Buddhist monks.

    This country is become laundry man^s world to this day.. please read below…
    They are abusing the words ” I love my country and I am a sinhala buddhist” in wrong context.

    Mervin Silva should be punished brutally for all the crimes he deliberately perpetrated saying something palatable ( all these are because of donkey minded, lethargic president the dobby man)

    ——————–

    I will not apologize

    BY KARUNADASA VIDANAGAMAGE

    Minister Mervyn Silva doubts that Minister Dulles Alahapperuma would have forgotten the relationship between the Silva family and his family (Alahapperuma), as Minister Alahapperuma had criticized the marriage proposal made by Mervyn Silva to Navanethem Pillay.

    Minister Silva made this remark, in response to Minister Alahapperuma’s statement that he would apologize on behalf of the whole Cabinet over Silva’s indecent proposal that he (Minister Silva) would marry Navanethem Pillay, the United Nation’s Human Rights Commissioner, who was in Sri Lanka recently.

    “The Sinhala word aseelachara (indecent) is not a word used loosely. I am a man who was born in Ruhuna. I am a strong Buddhist and I love my country. I am prepared to express my views against anyone who tries to destroy my country, be it a local or foreign element,” Minister Silva said.

    “I didn’t invite anyone to go with me to the park, or to pick flowers. I didn’t speak of marriage. What I meant was that Pillay should respect our country without carrying on propaganda for the LTTE. But everyone has misunderstood it. All these issues can be attributed to her negative attitude towards Sri Lanka. I won’t apologize to anyone whose feelings were hurt. I am a man from Beliatta. I will apologize only to the President and the members of his family,” Minister Silva added.

    Continuing with his explanation, he said: “I am surprised that Minister Dulles appears to be worried about my statement on Pillay. I think he is angry with me over this remark. Minister Dulles could have spoken to me over the telephone in this regard. Why is he apologizing over such a trivial matter? There are so many other things a minister can apologize for.”

      This brutal Mervin has embarrassed SINHALA folks in all means so far. Apparently people seem to be not taking serious. He should be removed from earth surface – in order many to feel PEACE in sl. Current status of brutalities we did not even experience DURING 89 insurgency period in which they JVP/ State thugs killed nearly 50k youth across the country (AI report in 2000)

    Yakos, who says one cant touch women and have sex. Do it dude by all means but dont insult the intelligence of people and specially the good name of Buddhism.

    Let these yakos disrobe them themselves first and then party.

    The safest way to permit Monks to Kiss Womens is to castrate every monk, This will also prove their sincerity in becoming a monk. There cant be a test of faith greater than this for every Monk. This will also ensure 70% of the monks who leave the sasana after graduating from Universities to zero. Most importantly all free loaders tax payers money will disappear and we will have only genuine monks. Whom we can trust and send our girls to pansal.

    The “Vinaya Pitaka” of the “Thripitaka” describes the code of conduct for monks. It specifically states that a monk should not touch a female. Also it says that monks should not show physical affection to another person.

      According to Vinaya, leave alone touching a woman, A priest is not allowed to tie a Pirith Nula on a Female’s wrist. It is the head of the house or an elder female that tie the Pirith Nula on the wrists of the females. Today the Upasaka Ammas who not only allow Buddhist priests to tie Pirith Nulas, but appears to be more familiar with them, as seen here. As some one said most of the females seem to enjoy the close contact of strangers under the guise of being pious, whatever the Religion is, either tieing a Pirith Nula or receiving Communion after Church Service.

    As Safa suggests the BBS monks must be men on heat. That explains their raucous behaviour. I think monks should be allowed to get married like the Mahayana ones. Sensible.

    This is not any monk but the chief Sanga Nayake of India, headquartered in Bodi Gaya. If he is upto this mischief, what can you expect from lower ranked monks, to maintain their celibacy and refrain from touching women. This abstinence is all a farce carried out in the name of Buddhism. The fact is Men and women were created for each other, to comfort each other, to care and love and feel loved by each other, to procreate in legitimate and acceptable terms of agreement (marriage) and leave behind a generation to carry their genes thru new mutations. Not the way these monks do it. Fathering illegitimate children, putting on a show in appearance, whilst being a cad under their robes.

    Monks who have dealings in the public an political spheres should be allowed to marry. This will allow them to have a greater understanding of the problems facing the community as well as curb the attraction towards members of the opposite and same sex.

    Those who are serious about attaining nibbana and renouncing the wordly life should not have dealings with the public and be accomodated in monastaries located in the remote areas. This will enable them to reach great spiritual heights. They may interact with the public in a limited and controlled manner.

    Similiar system is followed in in Islam,

    “There is a famous saying attributed to Prophet that says, “There is no monasticism in Islam.” The saying comes from a practical advice the prophet gave in response to some extreme form of asceticism that some of his companions wished to take upon themselves, and often the case is that certain practices are better left as private rather than mass and public because if common people begin to follow in an organized fashion they will fail to observe it properly.

    In Islam sacred tradition it is narrated, “Some of the Companions of the Prophet decided to relinquish the world, forsake their wives, and become like monks. The Prophet told them with asperity: People before you perished because of their asceticism; they made excessive demands on themselves until God brought hardships on them: you can still see a few of them remaining in monasteries and temples. So worship God and do not associate anything with Him, perform the pilgrimage, be righteous, and all affairs will be set right for you.”

    It seems CT has to widen its reach. The same nuts comment on every article with very little improvement in their intellect or outlook.

    Why not comment on the photo, instead of dragging the Christians, Muslims and even the Buddha.

    What you see in the photo is not allowed to be done. PERIOD, FULL STOP!!!
    Or as some would say “full is top!”

    I heard in Los Angeles they are having a Buddhist Monk having Yoga classes etc and a few ladies are playing loving hostess to him! And, he drives a brand new Cadillac to boot, donated by one of his admirers. The funny thing is none of the husbands are interested in attending his classes and the person who donated the house where all this is happening is having a rethink!

    And to the gullible audience the monk has spun an interesting story about how when he wanted to enter priesthood, his father could not afford to buy him a sivura and he had go around the village to collect enough money to get one. There is always that story to get one’s attention. How he can explain his present circumstances…. that’s another story.

    139 comments so far, and still counting.

    99 % are from familiar sources , Hindu, Muslim Chritian perhaps Anglican and even some Buddhists from the Vellala Sect,who have zeroed in from all four corners of the planet, to unload on the Sinhala Buddhist Monks and their Religion..

    Whilst these simple Sinhala Buddhist Monks have protected, and kept this little Island of Srilanka on the world map for two and half Millenia.many others of the same vintage or perhaps older have isintergrated or dismantled.

    The source of resources and even manpower for these demolotions came from none other than the the Nations where most of these commentators are now domiciled or rather taken refuge.

    And their mission is to do the same in our Motherland to fullfill the dreams of their liberator and the undisputed leader Mr Pirahaparan and install his philosophy.

    Although a few among then may have other agendas like helping their endengered political leaders.

    By the way, is this clip from the Cinematography File of Callum MacCrae’s Box in the Archives of the CH4 Studios?.

    She can feel his hard on through the robes.What a passionate kiss.

    If kisses could tell his is the mother of all kisses.I don’t blame him,personally i think celibacy is a cruel rule that should be overturned because it violates basic human right of having sex.

    We are breeding a lot of frustrated men here with these robes.They are also human after all and when they see a pretty woman will be aroused.

    Hey Jim, You are right. let monks kiss. carry on regardless. The issue is not the catholic church, buddhism or any other religion. The picture and what happened was the only issue. If Jim Softy thinks its alright, then so be it. Leave other issues aside. let the fall out from this picture be sorted out by the softies of this world. if that kiss was alright it should be so for all monks. Ask them if it is alright. Then discuss the issue
