Bungling of Vesak

Most of us were under the impression that the politicians who rush to the Mahanayakas on the slightest provocation, would have consulted them before declaring Vesak in April. But apropos your headline on April 24, even they have been taken unaware. I am more than eighty years old and cannot recall Vesak in April. As the Mahanayaka had mentioned, Poya on 29th April could have been an Adhi Bak Poya.

Sinhala New Year and Vesak are the two key celebrations for the Buddhists in the island. While the first is a national event the latter is religious. Even the poorest of the poor celebrate both as best one could. Immediately after spending for new clothes, sweet meats, and visits for the New Year, two weeks later Vesak comes, which again is a drain on the hambiliya (wallet) of the poor.

Now adding insult to injury, Buddhists are advised not to have Vesak pandals on the Vesak Day. The reason as given by the government been that the Vesak poya be devoted for religious activities. Buddhism being a very liberal religion one cannot be forced to be religious. At least if the politicians could set an example, the country would have achieved something .The only minister whom I recall observed sil on the poya day was late Mr.D.S.Gunasekera the MP for Habraduwa and was known as the Minister who observes sil.

So now we have Vesak in April. May Day on 7th May and Poson in June. I am wondering when it will be Christmas. Villagers say this is Kaliyugaya when anything can happen.

    Batalande Wandakaya Pol Pot [email protected]_leech wickrama Sinhala killer. Batalande Wandakay was born to the number one
    christian family (his father’s younger brother was the bishop of Kurunegala) in Sri Lanka and knowing it stood no
    chance of getting to the top of the political ladder it became a token Buddhist. That spelt death knell for Buddhism in
    Sri Lanka. And? Wadakaya been doing irreparable damage ever since to Buddhism, Sinhalese race and Sri Lanka
    beyond its peers wildest dreams. Then Batalande Wandakaya’s traitor UNPatriotic_rats controlled media made sure
    to paint a rosy picture about the Wandakaya and UNPatriotic_rats party’s anti Buddhist, anti Sinhalese, anti Sri Lanka treacheries.

    That’s how Batalande Wandakaya, traitor thambi mudiyanselage [email protected], traitor lk [email protected] porisada etc. etc kept killing
    Sinhalese and got away. Not to mention Sri Lanka, Buddhism and Sinhalese race destroying activities all the time.
    Wandakaya making sure nail by nail driven into the coffin of Buddhism, Sinhalese race and Sri Lanka to please its
    ardent supporters traitor tamils, mussies, catholics who vote them 100% plus the catholic west to whose tune these
    UNPatriotic_rats dance.

    Sinhalese have been modays have greatly helped the Wandakaya’s and UNPatriotic_rats’ cause.
    *Bheeshana samaya 60,000+ Sinhalese gone with the Wadakaya and its catholic police top brass
    *traitor thambi mudiyanselage [email protected], lk [email protected] porisada, Batalande Wandakaya’s catholic tigers of tamil drealam war
    100,000+ gone
    *Wandakaya and its catholic mafia day light robbery headed by its catholic buddy maha horandran. Rs 5585 billion
    and the fat thief disappeared into s’pore
    *Buddhist jvpers in tyre pyres, Batalande Wandakaya’s catholic buddy barrel man hitler mala paharan’s catholic
    tigers of tamil drealam was given half the country on a plate with th CFA in 2005
    *thambi mudiyanselage [email protected] put foundations to break up Sri Lanka by introducing 13, 13A (vast country, 3500 mile
    long, several time zones or to please tamils, mussies, india and the west). Today traitor tamils and
    mussies wants their them only drealam and mussiesthan while living all over the country comfortably. Still there are
    some Sinhala booruwas who think [email protected] was a great president (Sinhalese murdering alugosuwa)
    *then [email protected] created bogus asylum claimed diasporats who now won’t short of dismembering Mother Lanka

    Treacheries to destroy Sinhalese race, Sri Lanka and Buddhism by the traitor catholic run UNPatriotic_rats goes on
    and on. Sinhalayas being famous for modayas still mara ninde! Traitor UNPatriotic_rats want to ban Vesaka. But
    the UNPatriotic_rats sense that Sinhala modayas going to notice and resort to these dirty, sub human tricks. Sad
    irony of this is, these UNPatrioti_rats, tamils, mussies and catholics trying to destroy the only true religion, Buddhism,
    in the world.

    Today in this scientific age science has proven all the other religions are myths. Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution completely destroyed the creator god myth. Then his book, The Tree of Life explained how all these other creatures
    came to being as Lord Buddha explained over 2,500 years ago. These religions of conveniences don’t regard killing, stealing, lying, sexual
    misconduct, drug abuse (Buddhism’s five precepts) as sins while all honest people including all the law courts do.
    While one religion uses its Baby Machine Wives to multiply and steal countries (that’s how old Buddhist iran,
    afganisthan, pakesthan, maldives, bangladesh, malaysia, indonesia became mussies within a few hundred years
    of their arrivals in those countries; Google those countries Buddhist heritage to see for yourself), other uses its
    money and power to keep those mythical gods alive.

  2. NAK Says:

    Vesak day falling in April shows our lack of attention to important things until the last minute. This was on the calendar for months and I didn’t see anybody objecting to it until it dawned on everybody what a joke it is to have vesak in the month of Bak.
    Now the Minister concerned says that on the request of the prelates the Mayday activity was postponed but their request to rectify the Vesak abnormality was ignored.
