In china monks learn Shaolin Kungfu      ,in Tibet it is Lama Pai .in Japan it is Ki-aikido, in Sri Lanka let us give a name after the Ven monks master the Yoga .I would call it Ratanayoga ,as it is initiated by Ven Ratana Thero .After  learning  how to control your mind thru Yoga ,monks can move to create history by propagating a type of  Marshal Art to defend the nation .Recent incidents shown in TV ,we have seen many young monks with un -haved beard and head throwing stones to police andalso fighting using fists.

If they learn a marshal art after Yoga they can be more effective in fighting for closure of Saitm and for various other rights.

My personal opinion is that monks should practice Vippassana and develop the mind so that they can understand true Buddhist teachings ,They can then preach that all human beings should develop Metta ,Karuna and Upeksha .

Now a days chief prelates of temples keep asking money from devotees to build a golden fence to the sacred Bo Tree or ask for a donation to make a gold pinnacle to the Dagoba.

Recently chief monk came to our house and asked for 50,000 Rs as a contribution for one gold plated fence post ! ,obviously in my absence my devoted wife who practices Meditation has bluntly told him Monks should learn and teach meditation ,not seek material benefits !

Teaching Yoga ( when I look at the physique of the young Kung Fu  type monks ,most probably from a university ,I feel they  may form an army (orang) to fight for a course.

Police cannot use water cannon or use physical force as it will be a sin and get scared that that the monks ,may beat them .( recently we see that few policemen get beaten up on the road ( this reminds me of  Kotalawala  who was a police man beating the Gambler Naina in folkore Nainage Sooduwa ! using marshal arts)

 Poor police

 men should also be taught the art to fighting the monks who  may be leaning kung  Fu in time to come ?

every body was kung fighting    ,

    I thought Ratanaya was talking about Indian Yoga. The high caste bludgers used to practice because they never did any physical work.
