Royal Asiatic Society Sri Lanka (RASSL) Monthly Public Lecture on

The Buddha’s Sri Lankan Visits on Astro-Archeological Point of View”

by Dr. Kavan Ratnatunga, Astrophysicist, Post Graduate Institute of Archaeology

on Monday 25th May 2015 at 5.00 p.m.

at the Gamini Dissanayake Auditorium,No. 96, Ananda Coomaraswamy Mawatha, Colombo 07.

All are welcome.

The description of the event on the battle between the Nagas, Mahodara and Culodara matches the Total Solar Eclipse on BCE 481 April 19 at 8:30 AM. That event considered at the time as a miracle has been attributed by monks who wrote the 4th / 5th century CE chronicles of Lanka as the 2nd visit of the Buddha to Lanka, who in the words in the Dipavamsa was seen as the Moon.

    This is to be held at the Gamini Dissanayake Auditorium at Mahaveli Kendraya, building belongs to the Ministry of Mahaveli Development (close to Public Library in Greenpath, opposite Gamini Dissanayake Statute)

    Admission free

    Bus routes, 167, 155, 120, 122


    Royal Asiatic Society is an ANTI-SINHALA, ANTI-MR Organization. Now, dis-information in a monthly deal. Sampath how much do you get paid to be the publicity Director? Where is this punk Dr. Kavan (How about Kavan Tissa?) get his PhD in Astrophysicist? You can deceive the Colombo 7 but not the average SINHALA VILLAGER. Disgraceful set punks should be kicked of SL as soon as the legal government is restored.

  3. Independent Says:

    All those anti-MR are not anti-Sinhala. There are others who are pro-MR but anti-Sinhala. Those are the people who fooled MR from 2010 and betrayed the nation.
    Any bugger can pretend to be pro-MR and take this opportunity to attack our Sinhala Buddhist culture.

    Lankputhra, the current president is a top asshole. He was doing electronics job then announced he has a PhD in humanities! Has anyone seen the degree certificate? Can he provide a true copy pl?

  5. Sampath Says:

    Lankaputra, this current president (old fart) must be sent home this year. he thinks RAS is his private property, He tries to hang in to the president’s chair by hook or crook, man is ricketing old now. He tries to stay in the chair until death. a useless, rude moron, who is not qualified for the post


    Independent you are absolutely right. At last now we can see what idiotic things he did so that OBAMA agents penetrated his closed door Cabinet meetings. Sampath, do not get offended, RAS LK wants Catholics and Buddhist to kill each other. may be you dis-agree.

  7. Sampath Says:

    Lankaputhra, Disagree. The old fart of a President is only interested in clinging to power; we tried to oust him before he stays stuck like a balu makka. He won’t let us, the progressive force to come to power. I tell you, this old President does not give 2 cents care to Buddhism
