    Absolutely spot on! If we go to talk about these, we will be accused of defaming Buddhism and will be put to jail. We are not defaming this great religion, its some of the people within that does it.

    So the cost of findging "path to Nirvana" is approx RS 3.5mn. Hillarious:)

    This can definitely not be the teaching of Buddha and one of the highlighted case. I feel the respecting a monk should not be on his appearance than on his or her merit.

    One among many who try to make money out of religion & spirituality.

    You are absolutely right. Buddhist monks also manipulate politicians and politcians in turn play on their weaknesses. The buddhist public are the silent majoirty thus providing tacit approval for the poor state of buddhism in Sri Lanka.

    He he... This is classic!!!! A lady "paid" to learn the path to Nibbana!!!! :D Oh boy!!! I love my country!!!

    More than the fact that a "buddhist" nun tried to defraud her what bothers me is the fact that we have utterly embarrasingly stupid people in this country!!!!

    The incident confirms the famous saying " Only the body is in university the brain is still in Montessori"

    Rakhitha Monday, 02 August 2010 03:18 AM

    May be its high time to impose a tax on Nibbana! Looks like there is good money in it :)

    The Buddhist nun did the correct thing, "one has to leave all their wealth before attaining nibbna"

    Path to nirvana (heaven) is not that much of costly. its FREE if you follow it in a proper way.

    If she is naive the whole country is also naive. The hard line buddhist monks has defrauded this country for years, assasination of one prime minister, by taking lead roles in riots against Tamils since 1958, by opposing constitutional reforms. No one can talk about that.

    Makes me want to question the ''education'' system in the country... Surely, an educated person wouldn't be so foolish!!

    Citizen Monday, 02 August 2010 04:25 AM

    Like everything is in Rupees and Cents, even path to Nirvana is also at a price! First, the Govt. was made secure by buying off the crooks from the other side, now the religious people have taken a cue from that HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THIS COUNTRY!!!

    Oh 3.5 million too much. can i get a discount ?

    gamaya Monday, 02 August 2010 05:27 AM

    Proof that there are wealthy people who can be easily fooled

    Wickrama Sunday, 01 August 2010 11:48 AM

    It is the lady who got defrauded that should be punished for UTTER STUPIDITY!!

    In a country which calls itself "Dharmishta" where Buddhist priests ignore Lord Buddha's teachings and crave for Benz Cars to speed up their journey to Nirvana, those who charge money to preach Bana, and those who preach racism against fellow human beings and those who satisfy their greed by hanging on to politics like laymen; a Buddhist nun following their male counterparts to make some money is not a surprise at all.

    I have to agree with you on this one!

    Jason Sunday, 01 August 2010 12:21 PM

    Everything has a price these days...

    thusi Monday, 02 August 2010 05:46 AM

    Stupid People......No body needs to show anyone....If you follow Lord Buddha's teaching you will get there FOR FREE.........

    Sammy Sunday, 01 August 2010 01:25 PM

    Is there no such thing as free Nirvana.............?

    Podi Guru Sunday, 01 August 2010 01:34 PM

    Literate of course does not mean educated.

    Nan Monday, 02 August 2010 06:17 AM

    i agree... these extremist monks are a disgrace to buddhism..

    Babanis Sunday, 01 August 2010 02:38 PM
