Ven. Pitiduwe Siridhamma Thera was strongly advised by the Mahanayake and Karaka Maha Sangha Sabha of the Malwathu Chapter to avoid making sermons by distorting Tripitaka and the Buddha's character.  

Lekakadhikari Thera of the Malwatu Chapter Ven. Pahamune Sri Sumangala Thera told a news conference that Ven. Siridhamma Thera was summoned before the Karaka Maha Sangha Sabha of the Malwathu Chapter led by the Mahanayake Thera yesterday and strongly advised to stop the sermons distorting the Tripitaka and the Buddha's character.  

Ven. Pahamune Sri Sumangala Thera said Ven. Siridhamma Thera apologised to the Mahanayake and Karaka Maha Sangha Sabha of the Malwathu Chapter for the inconvenience caused to the Buddhists and assured not to make any sermons or Dhamma analysis outside the Mahavihara traditions.

The prelate said Ven. Siridhamma Thera also gave a written assurance in this regard. (Shane Seneviratne)

    This is the farmer monk who claims he is an Arahath denigrating Buddhism. He is doing a great job in farming and should disrobe and continue as a farmer instead of twisting core Buddhism for his won benefit.

    It is a fat hope if Mahanayakas think that priests can be gagged by obtaining undertakings

    But who knows the real truth of Tripitaka?. These all were and have been written as different people's interpretations. It is time to argue and have sensible conversations on these things that were supposed to have happened some 2,000 years ago.

    He is a businessman disguised in a robe

    Our practice of Buddhism for financial benefits has deviated substantially from Buddhas teachings and become distorted.

    Who is this guy and what did he say

    Chandima Thursday, 02 November 2023 06:03 AM

    He has become a joke. He not only distorts Buddhism but insults Lord Buddha too. Feel sad for his followers who are not aware of what damage he does to Theravada Buddhism.

    This Thera is doing a good service to the people but he always criticises others unnecessarily as if he is the Authority on everything.

    First and foremost, Sinhalese are worst example of Buddhism and its principles. Buddhism is like a cover for all the criminality, jealousy, racism, greed that majority Sinhalese culturally possess.

    We should be thankful and honor the action taken by the Maha Thera and the committee in clarifying the situation before the politicians plunge this country into another mess.

    What a nonsence news. Do we need these uncivilised, unethical frogs?

    What did he say to cause this problem to himself? Upali

    This robed womaniser was warned several times by the high priests. Why can not he be stripped of his ordination?

    We Budist can tollarate people like you. Better late than never; anyhow.
