The heavy rains in the area had uprooted the Bo tree at the Lahugala Kiriwehera Temple premises. It fell on the ancient Dagoba but the Buddha statue inside was miraculously saved. Pix by Upul Wijesinghe

    An idol of a great philosopher, but not God.

    couldn't stop the tree falling ?

    wild Tuesday, 18 December 2012 10:32 AM

    Do the people of Sri lanka know the meaning of "Philosopher, and God ?

    Kalana Tuesday, 18 December 2012 10:32 AM

    An unexplained miracle which happened during the tsunami as well. High time for Buddhists to practice Buddhism rather than preaching.

    Roshan Tuesday, 18 December 2012 11:07 AM

    Religious Places are always safeguarded, even during Tsunami, many Statues and worship places were intak.

    roshan Tuesday, 18 December 2012 11:12 AM

    good luck with that

    GODA Tuesday, 18 December 2012 11:36 AM

    Power of "SELFISH"......

    Gamarala Wednesday, 19 December 2012 09:05 AM

    How could anyone refer to this as a miracle? When the live Bo tree fell and the clay statue remains.

    managala Wednesday, 19 December 2012 09:00 AM

    you dont have to insult religions GODA

    Heres how I see it Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:45 AM

    Power of the Supreme Buddha.

    HardBall Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:49 AM

    Long live the doctrine of the great philosopher.

    amila Tuesday, 18 December 2012 07:56 AM

    May the Buddha's blessings save this country from the goons!

    visakha Tuesday, 18 December 2012 08:03 AM

    same things were happened when tsunami destroyed everything but it couldn't harm to any Buddha statues in this country. IT IS A MIRACLE.

    thusith Tuesday, 18 December 2012 08:31 AM

    Not a good sign

    mrn Tuesday, 18 December 2012 08:40 AM

    saadu..saadu.

    mjm Wednesday, 19 December 2012 05:36 AM

    Come on guys, please do not get offended.
    But Statues are made by human hands. How come the same thing is been worshiped and call this situation a miracle just because the tree missed it??
    Is it the ego inside hearts which does not allow to think further... A bit more logical thinking would help us understand reality.. isnt it??

    PoliticallyIncorrect Tuesday, 18 December 2012 09:01 AM

    if only whatever power that saved this statue was able to save at least one life that was lost when a tree crashed on to a van that would have been much much worth...
