Thanks for the Article above and come to discussion about morality in Buddhism first we want say that Buddhism is a Not a religion and its and philosophy that any educated and civilized man can follow in daily life. If any man born into the world is a precious chance he getting after millions of years being in the hell or haven (This not a Biblical or Quran haven or hell those myths are produce by ordinary mans)in any religions man is a slave for the god and he is servant for the god, but in Buddhism we are not slave for the Buddha or Buddha is not our God he is and teacher for us and tell what to do if we want to refrain from suffer(Cycles of Birth) we hope Ben Silva has born in to the any family who is their ancestors has followed any dogmaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  of a nay goodies religions(Other wise Buddhist who do not want to refrain from suffer). As he grows up he understood that emptiness of goodish character and its doctrine there for maybe he has avoided being an any religions idol. The ben silva took the part of the atheism in left wings and (atheism right wings are better) there for he need to discussion about Buddhism in wrong way with intellectual Buddhist in the world.

  1. Dham Says:

    Thanks for the article which at the least gives direct answers to this ¨Enemy of the Nation¨, the name I had to give him reluctantly.
    This man has only one agenda.
    1. Destroy Buddhism in Sri Lanka.
    All Sinhala Buddhist should condemn this man until he stops this nonsense. This guy should spend his energy to destroy other religions in his adopted country, not the core, heart and soul of the land he betrayed and ran away from.

  2. devamitta Says:

    I agree with Dham, but who are this NBA team? dont they have anyone who can write english? if not publish in Singhala. Cant lankaweb eddit their article, it makes such a wrong impression to read this cracky english. further I liked it but please next time make it readable.

  3. Dham Says:

    True, English WAISTS the punch. But they dont care about English I guess, Suddaś language.
    NBA ? who knows ? National Buddhist Alliance ?
    Whatever it is I am happy that they at least made some effort to stop this sell-fish, cunning Athiest.

  4. Sri Rohana Says:

    Devamitta! Comment on 24th June. “dont they have anyone who can write english?” “Craky English”……
    Don’t insult others on language ability. Language is a tool to communicate. You may be better than them but don’t think that you are the best English writer.
    On that aspect NBA had tried their best to give some idea what they want. It may not perfect but somehow they did it. We have to appreciate them. Should not discourage them. English may be NBA’s third language first is naturally Sinhala, Second may be Pali, Third or fourth language may be English. Therefore we have to appreciate their ability to communicate in a non-native language.
    Alien language should not use as a tool to discriminate natives. English is a tool used by neo colonial slavery mentality urban groups against native Sinhala majority. Most unfortunate thing in Sri Lanka is even after 60 years invaders left our country still reasonable lot worship english language and culture to insult Sinhala natives.
    Do you think you are a perfect English writer? Let us check your three-lined comment how many errors in it. 1. dont, 2). english 3).if 4) cant 5).eddit 6).craky english 7).further 8). “please next time make it readable”? It should be “please make it readable next time”.
    Being an english pakkir you made eight errors in three lines. Accept we all make mistakes not only NBA. Feed back in positive manner please.

  5. Dham Says:

    Sri Rohana,
    I fully agree that NBA has done a extremely important and commendable task here and it is a must by all Sri Lankans to defend our traditional values.
    But I do not think you should attack Deveamitta so hard. He made it clear that NBA should have written this in Sinhala. I also think that it is difficult to get the message through SInhala since Ben Silva attacked our values in his language.
    It is also possible that NBA has purposely written in wrong English.

  6. Dham Says:

    Devemitta and Sri Rohana,
    Thank you anyway for commenting positively for this important issue. I hope both of you be friends to a noble cause.

  7. devamitta Says:

    I’m not a english native speaker but dutch and a Singhala Theravada monk. i like to read this article’s and send many to friends abroad to inform them on the Singhala and Buddhist points of few. Therefor I wrote my comment, being better readable it would make a better impression on them. I agre that i’m not perfect in english, or enything else for that matter, but my only intention was the fore mentioned. I’m sory if you see it as an insult, not ment that way, but if you wish to see it that way; its your oppinion. your english is not much better then mine, but that is surely because of the same reason; we are not native english speakers. further more; i agree with the article but as an item of intrest to send to others i wrote my comment. with Metta; devamitta Thero

  8. Dham Says:

    Bhante Devamitta,
    Please keep on contributing, especially on Ben Silvaś cunning plan whenever one of his rubbish appears.
    NBA team appears to be some shngha front but I think it is not a good language for monks ( I am not talking about English but SAMMAWACA).
    But whatever it is this only the 3rd writing other than Ratnapala and another writer who highlighted the plan of Ben Silva.
    Please accept my apology ion behalf of our friend Sri Rohana.

  9. devamitta Says:

    Dear friend Dham, no apology needed I understand. I apreciate deeply what makes you comment. What considers this Ben Silva; I agree with your reactions, in all the things he wrote he is down grading Buddhism and this hurts me to! best thing is to prove him wrong with good arguments and in a honarable way; we should never allow ourselves to come down to the level of those we dispice or not agree with. I have been asking my friends in western countries to read lanka web, many of them are doing so, i did this because they ask me regularly about the situation over here in Lanka. (on the moment specialy C4). Here they can read also the “other side of the story”, and naturaly they will also read the unsympathis and insulting articles like those of B.S.. Therefor I hope that there will be reactions like yours and others, so they will also be able to read them. But insults are not the way. Greetings and Metta to all!

  10. Ben_silva Says:

    I like the spirit and confidenc of NBA. Shame that NBA did not exist dring Portgese, Dutch and British invasions of Lanka. What was NBA doing during recent Indian invasion and occupation of large part of the country by LTTE and controlling 66% of coastline. ? In hiding or living in a well ?
    What are they doing on 13 A ?
    Best of luck and Theruvan saranai

  11. Sri Rohana Says:

    Dear Devamitta thero! I made a mistake. I didn’t know who you are. I thought that you also a Ben’s supporter. Now only I knew that you are a true Theravada Buddhist priest. I am really sorry if I have offended you. Actually I too tried to defend Buddhism in support to NBA team’s statement though it was not properly written.
    Honestly I don’t know what is NBA, who they are? I am not a NBA team member but I agreed with them, on fundamentally for their message against Ben’s anti Buddhist sentiments.
    Dham appreciate your comments too.
    Sabbe sattha bavanthu suki thaththa

  12. Dham Says:

    I wonder what Ben Silva did during IPKF time. DIrve the lorry carrying arms to LTTE from Ranasinghe ?
    What are you doing to stop channel 4 in UK ?
    Do you sincerely think writing to Lanka Web teaching us how to be Sinhala Buddhist without Nibbana will stop all these ? only if your well is 1000m deep. Be there and keep your unfaith. We will keep our faith.

  13. devamitta Says:

    Dear Sri Rohana; no need for apology, we are all on the same side!No offence taken.I also agree with what I understand of their writing my comment was meant to make it more accesable so more people would appreciate it.
    I appreciate that you and Dham are protecting Buddhism! That makes me feel good! Whish there where more like you two! There will be always people who will try to infiltrate their ideas in to Buddhism, to corrupt it, as long as we have right understanding of the teachings they cant get their way! This kind of thing (Singhala Buddhism without Nibbana etc.), might be a way for them to start a new sect which will be easy to be absorbed by Christianity. This time we should not make the same mistake as before (like giving hospitality to Christian preachers to even preach in our Temples), because they will abuse us, Buddhist, as before! We should use our brain and reject this sectarian humbugg, iff we learned any lesson of the past, we dont need any Panadura controversies any more, we won them long ago!! Friendly greetings and Metta to you! Devamitta Thera

  14. Nanda Says:

    Thank you very much for NBA team. You are the true hela people, not Ben_Silvas and the like.
    As you said rightly, chasing IPKF and saving coastline is not the duty of Buddhism.
    Buddhism is the solution to the main problem every being is facing, sickness, old age , death followed by sadness,lamentation etc. It is a common rpoblem to Hela people as well as Tamil people. The Buddha did not discriminate.
    There is no need to attack Buddhism if you hate others. IF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF HATRED FIND THE SOLUTION WITHIN, AS INSTRUCTED BY BUDDHA.

  15. Ben_silva Says:

    It is time to return compliments to Dumb Dham. He is an obnoxious fool, without a single brain cell in his body, incapable of intelligent discussion and only capable of hurling abuse. This is my first and the last time I will respond to Dham. He is welcome to hurl abuse, as it is the only thing he is capable of.
    As for NBA, best wishes to them to carry on the good work.
