(Lanka-e-News - 24.June.2017, 11.30PM) A number of rare and most sublime Damma padhas (Buddhist preaching) which a Bhikkhu who had not attained the state of Rahat could deliver was preached by most Ven. Dambara Amila Thera at the State Information department on the 21 st evening.
These preachings are most paramount because a great part of those few banapadhas had reference not to laymen but rather to Mahanayake of the Asgiriya chapter and its clergy council.
While delivering his sublime Buddha’s words laden with wisdom of true Buddhism, most Ven. Dambara Amila Thera explained and enlightened that the announcement made by Mahanayake of Asgiriya chapter and its clergy council on behalf of a confirmed idiot and scoundrel Gnanassara wearing robes who drove vehicles sans driving license ; ran over a three wheeler when driving a lorry in the dead of night after consuming kasippu , and was therefore punished by court after admitting his guilt ; and who is setting the country on fire for cash rewards, is most deplorable and deserves absolute denunciation .
This robed Gnanassara on whose behalf the Asgiriya Mahanayake made the announcement is nothing but a debauched moron , marauder and a despicable masquerader in robes disgracing his own religion .
It is the view of Lanka e News, those few historic words in the preachings (banapadhas) of Ven . Dambara Amila Thera’s were not only most sublime but most pertinent in the present context when the pristine purity of Buddhism is being distorted by so called religious dignitaries based on their contorted mentality and warped thinking .
Most Ven. Dambara Amila Thera’s preachings are historic specially because , never in the history of Sri Lanka , anybody had criticized the bourgeois Mahanayakes and their wrongs in public , despite the fact Lord Buddha who renounced all his worldy possessions in search of enlightenment clearly preached to speak the truth without fear or favor.
For just the few banapadhas he preached to the media personnel alone , Ven. Dambara Amila Thera deserves to be worshipped not only kneeling down but even falling at his feet …. that is, he said , in order to douse the evil flames of racism and religious hatred , writing or telling a lie is not a sin.
We are very unfortunate that we do not have the text of the full speech of most Ven. Dambara Amila Thera . However a video footage of it compiled by journalists of ‘Lanka Daily’ is hereunder. Though these Dhamma padhas were full of rarest pearls of superlative quality and most sublime , it is a matter for deep regret those nitwits and nincompoops in the State information department where those Dhamma padhas were delivered could not appreciate the value . It was like casting pearls before Swines. Those most valuable sermons were not even made into a news publication . In the circumstances , we urge you to watch the video hereunder
