    Good timing just before the PC elections. Religion is also used in a subtle way for political advantage. Can the sins committed be covered by these acts?

    This shows the goodwill of India towards Srilanka but at the same time budhists must treat other religions with respect.Please follow the teaching of Lord Budha and make this island a paradise.

    I wonder if Lord Buddha was alive today, what he would think of these practices of worshiping relics , which would be anathema to him. The essence of Buddhism is expressed in the four noble truths: Duke (suffering), Someday (cause for suffering), Nirodha (cessation of suffering) and Marga (path to cessation of suffering). Further he preached three characteristics inherent in everything: Anicca (impermanency), Dukkha (conflict and suffering) and Anatta (soullessness or not permanent entity). Since the main teaching of Buddhism revolves around Dukkha (suffering) many people think Buddhism as being pessimistic, cynical and is all about suffering, and is an enemy of harmless pleasure. Buddhism is only to gain mental tranquillity and deliverance from physical and mental suffering.

    cont: To achieve this, one has to leave the worldly life and become an ascetic.
    This is far from truth. The Buddha quite correctly understood that everyone could not become an ascetic. Everyone could not leave their kith and kin and devote his full time to make an end to suffering. Therefore he preached Dhamma to those who wanted to live a mundane life, to make it a happier one. He realized that wealth is an essential thing among others, to a layman to live a happy life. So earning money, accumulating wealth and live happily is accepted in Buddhism for laymen.
