What is striking about the current dispensation is that they have rewritten the Pali cannon.

The Licchavis were known as a clan in ancient India during the time of the Buddha.

The Licchavis were known for their unity and consensus system of government for the common good. Unity and consensus governance became synonymous with the brilliant Licchavis.

Modern Lankan Licchavis led by the UNP leader are hell bent on creating more divisions in our society than there were ever before. Consider this. A full 60% of Sinhalese voted for Mahinda Rajapaksa at the last presidential election, and that is after calculating on the basis that 80 per cent of the minorities voted for the other candidate. That estimation is rather charitable towards the minorities in assuming that they had been somewhat neutral in that presidential election. It seems more than 80 per cent of the minorities voted for the other guy, and it means therefore that for all practical purposes more than 60 per cent of the Sinhalese voted for Rajapaksa, but we would leave the number at 60 per cent, and let things rest at that.

But anybody that has anything to do with the 60 per cent I am talking about are being hounded out.

That is the Licchavis doctrine of today – alienate 60 per cent of the majority community, and it is called consensus building according to the great Licchavi tradition.

2500 + years old Licchavi corpses must be turning in their graves due to this contretemps, but then perhaps that could be written off as a little bit of disruption by the new dispensation. A little bit of corpse-jogging, eh jolly good.

Disruption in the nature of stirring up the ghosts of things past. Their specialization.

Here is an academic excerpt on the glorious attributes of real Licchavi unity:

In ancient India, King Ajasath was such an autocratic ruler whereas the Lichchavis are considered to have followed a republican form of government. The Buddhist texts say that the Lichchavi’s royal government was a republican union which could not be defeated by any ruler during that time.
King Ajasath wanted to invade the Lichchavi’s kingdoms and the Maha Parinibbana Sutta records that the Licchavis were so strong in their unity that no one was able to defeat them, not even the powerful Ajasath.

But within ruling cabal here in Colombo, in the here and now, division means unity. A full 60 per cent of the majority community are ridden roughshod over.

Their leaders are flung in jail and their children are flung in jail and the rabble is roused again this segment of the demographic.
Licchavi unity is gradually being redefined as plain and simple disunity. This is basically standing things on their head. It seems to be a specialization for you know who.

Like saying that there should be should be a harbour in Pollonaruwa.

But they will say they are honoring the ancient Licchavis. Their support groups go around Colombo and are heard to say at every coffee stop, that the Licchavis were chic.

Ah Licchavi they say, with their lattes.

Who can argue with that? Latte jogging Licchavi corpses. Like price-control economics.

    The Yamapalana goons are not Licchavis but Lajja-nathi minissu arrogating to themselves an honorable clan in Buddhist history!

    What us more, there are no REAL BUDDHISTS in the Yamapalanaya, but a Kalliya of Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Tamil minorities HELL BENT on subjugating and eradicating Buddhism and it’s ethical moral teachings from Sri Lanka!

    Licchavis Indeed! My bloody foot!

    Never fear, we will oust and expel these pseudo-Licchavis VERY SOON to their foreign refuges VERY SOON!

    YAMAPALANA govt. is made up of LECHCHAMIS not LICCHAVIS.

    Lankan Licchavis should be called Demalichchavis because they survive on Demala (Tamil) support and are noisy like the birds Demalichchas.
