    s.dias Wednesday, 11 July 2012 02:50 AM

    what do ellawala medhananda and jhu say about this?
    please come out with some comments so that the people know your stand.

    There is no damage to Buddha or the Arya Dhamma expounded by Him, nor to Arya Sangha who follow the direct path to realisation of four noble truth. Damage will be to those who call themselves Buddhists only for egotistic reasons.

    Ven. Maha sanga we have lot of respect for you. please take action against dussila sanga and give your decision sanga contesting elections. We are the Buddhists waiting your answer. If you say yes we accept it. If you say no even we accept it.

    Actually these are all criminal monks selling the name of Lord Buddha to promote their criminality. It is an insult to listen to any preaching from such monks. They are simply not buddhists but dirty criminals hiding under the saffron robe.

    RajasH Tuesday, 10 July 2012 11:50 AM

    absolute shame to the religion.This is what happens when you make the religion cheap buy putting Buddha statue at every at every street corner. It becomes a commodity

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 10 July 2012 11:57 AM

    The buddhists who support and vote for such parties are also insulting the great teachings of Lord Buddha. This is why, sinhalese are the worse insult to Lord Buddha.

    asfar Tuesday, 10 July 2012 12:00 PM

    please do not insult budhdhism. it is only some bad apples there just like any other religion.

    Imran Hussein Wednesday, 11 July 2012 04:59 AM

    I agree but sending them back temples is another wrong decision, it wont help buddhism. They should be sent somewhere else.

    perera Wednesday, 11 July 2012 05:12 AM

    because he has no backbone.

    Sammy Wednesday, 11 July 2012 05:32 AM

    There would be many more wolves in monk's clothing.

    Nodrog Wednesday, 11 July 2012 06:13 AM

    More like trying make more hay while the sun shines

    gihan Wednesday, 11 July 2012 06:13 AM

    politicians and monks are the most harmful persons to the society.

    iamsome1 Wednesday, 11 July 2012 06:42 AM

    Criminals dont belong to any religion people must understand that principle, religion does not teach to commit crimes. Appreciate the decision.

    roshan Wednesday, 11 July 2012 12:08 PM

    bonnie mallie Tuesday, 10 July 2012 10:27 AM

    tarzan Tuesday, 10 July 2012 10:27 AM

    Gawee Thursday, 12 July 2012 03:05 AM

    In Japan where 63% do not have a religion is one of the ten safest, disciplined contries in the world. Gawee

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 10 July 2012 10:28 AM

    The great damage to buddhism is sinhalese claiming that they are the best example of buddhism.

    Sumansiri Tuesday, 10 July 2012 10:29 AM

    Ven. Mahanayaka Theros should take action to cleanse the sanga sasane from all the crooks, liars, thieves, hate mongers, politicians, child molesters etc.

    aaa Tuesday, 10 July 2012 10:46 AM

    why he needs this much wealth when one does not have children, family, generation & even a free life to enjoy in public.

    Yehiya-Jeddah Tuesday, 10 July 2012 11:02 AM

    deiyosaki Tuesday, 10 July 2012 10:54 AM

    Godagampala Rohana Tuesday, 10 July 2012 11:12 AM

    When the Buddhist monks creap into politics, these happenings are usual. JHU this is for your attention.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 10 July 2012 11:14 AM

    All these are because of power hunger.

    Amarathunga Chandika Tuesday, 10 July 2012 11:20 AM

    Maha Sanga, what is happening to the Buddhisum? When clergies enter poitics, we could expect these nasty events.
