    At least this opera singer has made some money like our domestic workers in the middle east. She is a pride for the Sinhalese. Unfortunately lot of the Opera fans think she is Indian because she is a so called Sri Lnakan.

    If we were still Ceylonese (people of the land of the Sinhalese like Indians the people of the lands of Hindus not Bharathayans)

    This is part Ranil Wickramasinghe’s please the West plan. He cares neither thjis country nor its culture . He wants to be in political power and be the President. And lots of our foolish people educated in big schools in Colombo, and else where, and those who think it is a prestige to imitate English and Western culture have fallen into Ranil Wickramasinghe’s trap baiting people to his side.

    How can we rectify this error we committed on the 8th January,2015 ? Even the media is now falling in line with UNP for fear. I saw Chatura of Derana in Wadapitiya painfully trying to be objective making pro-governmnt comments

  4. Fran Diaz Says:

    The Elections were manipulated through social media, and later rigged too.

    Sometimes, Democracy is a joke, it seems.

  5. Dham Says:

    The song ”අසේමතුවන කඳුළු ” came to mind when I was spending a year long solitary life constantly engaging in metta meditation. I did not even know the full lyrics then, yet I was able to have insights into first noble truth with this excellent writing by Mahagamasekara.
    This was the closest writing to my heart, no other song come even close to it. I thought “කඳුළු බිඳු ” represent suffering and “කැලෑ මල් “, defilements. I felt it.

    After many years , I came across the original writing by Sekara and to my surprise it was written dedicated to Avkana Statue than to Buddha, but with Buddha’s compassion and noble truth was blended into it.
    It was apparent to me that by cutting short of the poem Amaradeva has distorted the true meaning to some extent, yet it became an excellent writing which demonstrated true Buddhism in a beautiful way.

    I would like to share the original song with you.

    ඇසේ මතු වන කඳුළු බිඳු ගෙන
    ඔබේ සිරිපා දොවන්නම්
    හදේ මැල වෙන කැලෑ මල් ගෙන
    ඔබේ සිරිපා පුදන්නම්

    නො අදහා බුදු කෙනකු දෙවියකු
    මානයෙන් වල්මත් ව සිටි මම
    ගලක් යැයි ඔබ සිතා සිටියෙමි
    තෙතක් හෝ කිසි දයාවක් නැති
    ගලින් කළ ඔබ හදින් වෑහෙන
    මහා කරුණා ගුණය නො පෙනිණි

    අහිංසක හදවත්හි උපදින
    මෙලෙක් සංකල්පනා සිතුවිලි
    ගලින් කළ ඔබ හට ම මිස ලොව
    ගලින් කළ අයට නැඟෙයි

    කෙලෙස් මල පිරි නුවර අත හැර
    බවුන් වඩනට වනේ වැඩි ඔබ
    සොයා ආයෙමි පොළෝ තලයේ
    අනෙක් පිහිටක් නොමැති වූ විට

    ඉහළ නිල්වන් අහස විනිවිද
    නැඟෙන ඔබගේ යෝද බුදු බඳ
    මගේ නෙත සිත මෝහනය කර
    මගේ කුදු බව පසක් කොට ඇත

    ඔබේ පාමුල බැගෑපත් ලෙස
    වැටී අයදිමි අහෝ සාමිනි
    ජීවිතේ යම් පලක් ඇත් නම්
    කිමැයි ඒ මට කියා දුන මැන

    As someone studied our local music and never any western music, let me conclude that, in my opinion, it is perfectly alright to sing this song in opera style, if that is possible at all. It will not affect the meaning badly. Some other person may think differently.

    As long as Sinhala Buddhist people engage in worshipping politicians of their choice, not realising truth, they will only help harming the country. Reason is Buddhism is about TRUTH and honesty and upright behaviour is paramount, as Buddhists.

  6. Dham Says:

    බුදුන්ගේ ශ්‍රී ධර්මස් කන්දා දන්නවානම් the man names Sanka will not mention throwing stones at cats. Please DO NOT DEFEND his action, it is OK to defend the person.

  7. Lorenzo Says:

    Dham,

    If you can translate that to English that is a MERITORIOUS ACT.

    “when I was spending a year long solitary life constantly engaging in metta meditation”

    Not sure how true this claim is. IF true it is a MUST for all SLs to spend atleast 2 days to reflect on things. When SL people go on pilgrimage they only engage in RITUALS and the rest is FUN. As HAJJ is subsidized, ALL SLs should be given the chance to spend 2 days in meditation at some point in their life. May be they can start with school kids. MEDITATION BOOT CAMP.

  8. Charles Says:

    Dham Throwing stones at cats was not through hatred of the song , but the way it was sung. He did not know opera style songs because it is outside the Sri Lanka culture. The organisers of the Independence day should have got Nanda Malinee to sing it.

    Sinhala songs are melodious soft and serene. This song has to be sung with that calm, peace serene melody.

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    My dear Mr Charles Perera, I AGREE with you. But WHO is there to do all this?

    1. Can we rely on AMERICANS themselves to SAVE us from Americans???? No. Because they have taken an OATH OF ALLIGIENCE to USA. They are NOT willing to break it.

    2. Two of MR’s kids are BRITISH EDUCATED. They all studied at STC – the most westernised and Christian ideological den!!

    3. For some people around MR 24/7, KHAN and JAQLINE are gods. LAMBOGHINIES are gods. Can our man break FREE from that influence? No. Because he is BOMBARDED by these 24/7.

    Please look at this problem we are in without taking sides. You are a BUDDHIST and you should be able to FREE your mind from ATTACHMENTS better than me.

    We have to SAVE MR from WESTERN INFLUENCE and turn him once again into the VILLAGE LAD he was. We need an “UNCULTURED” villager NOT burdened by diplomatic BS with SIMPLE STRAIGHT thinking to save us. I only see them in the MILITARY.

    Otherwise, we have to bring MR back to MEDAMULANA WALAWWA from CALTON HOUSE. Do you see what I see?

  10. Lorenzo Says:

    “Dham Throwing stones at cats was not through hatred of the song , but the way it was sung.”

    But WHY throw stones at cats or ANYONE? If you don’t like it, don’t listen. Now even non-SLs are listening and appreciating the song.

  11. Fran Diaz Says:

    Lorenzo,

    We think MR can balance the East/West cultures quite well. He is more with the East in his culture and habits. He is 70 yrs old and he belongs to the post World War II group in Lanka.

    We think it is quite ok for him to remain at Carlton House or Medamulana Walawwa – whatever name the press uses is alright.

    It is quite alright that the children were educated at St Thos. Their values are alright in modern times. They are normal children – they move with society and with the business world. Today, understanding the west is important too.

    MR needs to be saved from the Yahap govt. and their Fascist/Sadistic governance style.

    “I would like to share the original song with you.

    ඇසේ මතු වන කඳුළු බිඳු ගෙන
    ඔබේ….”
    You call this is a Sinhala thing? What a load of Sacred Indian cow dust?

    Soon we will be drinking Cow urine bottled by RSS instead of a bit of Kithul Raa or Pol Raa,.

    What Indian suckers are we?

  13. Dham Says:

    Lorenzo,
    “Not sure how true this claim is.” This is not a claim. I was sharing my experience that is all. I was not meditating whole day whole year but every solitary moment was spent on contemplation.

    Charles,
    I was talking about the “act of throwing stones at cats” not about the song. Such act obviously prove that the thrower does not know any Buddhism according to the song. Yet this man is pretending to be a protector of Buddhism.
    One throws stones obviously when angry.

    I regret Nalin went further and said it is our Sinhala culture. I hope he did not mean it.
    It is a personal view, Charles, whether that particular song was suited to be sung in that way. To me it is very suitable. To you and some others it is not.

    Christie,
    I don’t call it a Sinhala thing , it is written in Sinhala and sung in Sinhala, I am a Sinhala and I like it very much. It surely enhance Buddha Dhamma. Buddha is said to be and Indian. You can abuse Buddha, if you like.

  14. Lorenzo Says:

    Fran,

    For Carlton house, STC, Khan, Jaqline, London Law School, Darmouth Naval Training School, Lamboghinie, etc.
    KABBARAKOYA————-> THALAKKOYA

    For Opera singing and Run-nil’s western dress.
    THALAKKOYA—————–> KABBARAKOYA

    People won’t buy ANY of this.

    MR should realize My3’s highly successful FACEBOOK campaign heavily relied on NR’s and YR’s western LIFESTYLE. MR’s voters are RURAL people and people who think like RURAL FOLK, not COLOMBIANS. They don’t like it.

    Sometimes I wonder WHY you want to keep MR in the opposition forever. IF MR does the same thing he did 2010-2015 he will get the same result as 8 January 2015.

  15. Lorenzo Says:

    Kithsiri,

    Endia REJECTED Buddhism. SL ACCEPTS Buddhism. That is the difference.

    If this vital difference is NOT there, SL will be part of Endia.

  16. Dham Says:

    Lorenzo,
    Translation roughly as follows. It is difficult to express the real meaning in English,

    Let me take the tear drops emerge from the eye to wash your feet
    Let me offer the wild flowers wither in my heart at your feet.

    I was bewildered in conceit not believing the Buddha or any God
    Thus I thought you were a stone indifferent to feelings with no kindness
    I could not see the great compassion pouring out from your heart made of stone

    Those soft (kind) feelings arising in hearts of innocent beings
    You do feel Sir, not those in this world with stone hearts

    Leaving city life full of the filth of defilement
    You went to forest to meditate
    I came in search of you , Sir, when there was no other refuge on this earth

    Rising over the high skies, your giant upright Buddha body
    Brings my body and mind into enthrallment, Sir,
    Convincing how tiny and not upright I am

    At your feet I humbly salute you , Dear Sir and would like to ask,
    To teach me if there is any fruitful thing in life – please teach me.

    Note that only sections in the bold letters are in the song. The rest has been discarded by Amaradeva.
    Lorenzo, acts can be meritorious but it can bring anger and misery to some.
    People abused Buddha while he was alive. He was compassionate to all.
    Why should Buddhist get attached to nay song ? I wonder.

  17. Christie Says:

    The Budhdhism we follow is Hidufied Budhdhism.

    So called Budhdhists go Kataragma to worship the god of sixers and doubles of that. Six dicks and twelve balls.

    Mahinda, Ranil and Sirisena all go to Indian Kovils to be screwed by the Poo-Saris.

    Let us keep listening to Amara Deviyangei veiling (kanawanndhum) songs.

  19. Charles Says:

    My Dear Mr. Lorenzo , Yes I see what you see, It seems to me you have already started your anti Mahinda Rajapakse propaganda. You did what you could last time. Wish you luck..

  20. Senevirath Says:

    ක්‍රිස්ටි ”අහිකුන්ටිකයන්ගේ ” කුණුහරුප ”’ඔයේ ඔජායේ ‘ හොඳද අමරදේවගේ සින්දු වලට වඩා

  21. Christie Says:

    අමර දේවයෝ තමයි ඔය ඉන්දියානු වැන්දඹු ගායනය ගෙනාවේ. අපිට දැන් ඉන් එහාට; වෙනත් අපේම හෝ අනෙකුන්ගේ ගායනය අරහන්.

  22. Fran Diaz Says:

    Lorenzo,

    We do not want MR in the Opposition, though he will fit that role well too.

    You try to change people to your way of thinking only – that will not work. People have their own ideas of events and others, and what works.

    MR’s children went to St Thos. What is wrong with that ? If they went to a strictly ‘local’ school, they would not have a wider outlook and experience.

    The social media used by the Yahap crowd to tell LIES about the MR children and MR. That was obvious. But it was an effective campaign against the MR govt. You also do not acknowledge that the Elections were cheated through the computers. Both these reasons are why MR ‘lost’ the elections ! Why be obtuse about the facts ?

    What the masses want is what Colombo has (so clearly said Karuna). What has Colombo got that the masses want ? I think it is the knowledge of the English language (as a second language), and knowledge of the computer where self learning can begin.

    ———–

    Charles is right. There is a anti-MR campaign by Tamil folk.

  23. Fran Diaz Says:

    MR is needed by the People of Lanka, Sinhala & Others. His was/is a decent and mature leadership, devoid of the pettiness/Fascist & Sadistic elements we witness today with the present Yahap regime, which acts so in the guise of ‘Good Governance’ & taking care of FALSE War Crimes charges.

    MR, GR & Others now in the Jnt Opposition are needed in the Front Leadership, not merely in the Jnt Opposition.

  24. Lorenzo Says:

    Dham,

    Thanks.

    It is FOOLISH to get attached to songs, statues, paintings, etc. They should be USED to GAIN a higher understanding of things and PUT US IN THE RIGHT MOOD and then DISCARD.

  25. Lorenzo Says:

    Charles and Fran,

    I DID NOT blame MR for CORRUPTION.
    I DID NOT blame MR for NEPOTISM.
    I DID NOT blame MR for WAR CRIMES.
    I DID NOT blame MR for ABDUCTIONS.

    ALL I ask is for MR to get back to his SINGHALA VILLAGE roots. DROP CARLTON, POPE, KHAN, etc. and embrace MEDAMULANA again. Is it too much to ask?????

    I think MR has to move AWAY from WESTERN nonsense. After 2009 MR was DRAGGED to the WESTERN camp by people around him.

    Fran, lets keep RACISM out of this, please. TAMIL has nothing to do with this.

    Every RIGHT THINKING man (including me) wants MR back. MEDAMULANA MR, not CARLTON MR.

  26. Fran Diaz Says:

    Lorenzo,

    Medamulana MR is there with the Carlton MR. There is no issue there for me. I don’t understand what the fuss is about that …
    MR’s children opted to go more modern with parental approval from both mother and father – that is moving with the times. I don’t get the fuss about that either.

    This is your topic. Not ours. Ours was concern with the goings on with the past cheated Elections and present Fascist/Sadistic Yahap govt, and Tamil Separatism – can’t miss the ‘divide & rule’ bit either, if aware.

  27. Dham Says:

    Dear all,

    Coming out of “අසේමතුවන කඳුළු ..”, this big Hu Ha about the song are all PURE POLITICS with ZERO benefit to Sinhalaya , Buddhists or even to Tamils.

    This “Sankha” fellow blew this out of proportion as a “SUPPORT” for MR & Co.
    Opportunistic UNPeeres blew “Sankha’s supporting words” out of proportion.
    Both parties did not have ANY love for the country nor the purest intention to protect Buddhism.

    Susantha, I and Lorenzo knew all these but we were sad that the innocent clever singer was abused in the process. For some people this is “collateral damage” and they are indifferent to the victim.

    If we are honest patriots, indifference to someone’s suffering should be brought to an end. We should be honest first.

    Lorenzo has simply pointed out methods to end this useless government. If MR did what he was supposed to do we all are enjoying music these days.

    It is not vote rigging, lies that brought this horrible state to motherlanka bus . It all started in 2010 and it is going downhill. Drivers changed but going even more downhill now. Either previous driver should be rehabilitated or we should find a new driver.

  28. Fran Diaz Says:

    P.S : The people we blame are the Tamil Leaders, among others, for misleading the Tamil people of Lanka.

    Was it a mistake on the part of SWRD to have given those life supportive Laws (two) to raise downtrodden Tamils from Tamil Nadu ? With the Law for Tamil language use, he paid for his life, didn’t he ?

  29. Fran Diaz Says:

    Dham,

    Spell out clearly just what MR was supposed to do in 2010 ? Your message to us is not clear.

  30. Piyadigama Says:

    Madamulane Mahinda and Carlton House Mahinda.

    Many Sri Lankans in villages say the very same thing. Good insight.
