‘President gave fearless leadership to Sri Lankans’
President Mahinda Rajapaksa is the only leader who gave fearless leadership to Sri Lankans in erasing the black mark which stained the country’s image for three decades, said Ven Dr Bellanwila Dhammaratana Sanghanayake Thera, Director Singapore Buddhist Centre and Founder Singapore Buddhist Library.
“People are today able to proudly call themselves Sri Lankans due to the great service rendered by him,” he said.
Ven Dhammaratana Thera said so delivering an anusasana when a group of Sri Lankan Bikkhus engaged in Dhammaduta activities in Singapore called on President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Singapore yesterday morning to invoke blessings on him.
The prelate said even though they are away from the motherland they regretted the utterances made and the unruly behaviour resorted to by certain sections of the people in Sri Lanka in the face of the world economic crisis. People should not act in a short sighted manner to seek petty ulterior motives as the escalation of prices of oil and other consumer items were beyond any ones control.
The Ven Dhammaratana recalled that they had to encounter serious problems and obstacles during their dhammaduta activities during the past 40 years due to the negative international image on Sri Lanka. “After assuming duties in 2005 President Mahinda Rajapaksa has defeated terrorism and steered the country on a correct path and it was the duty of all to support him in his endeavour to usher in development and progress for his people. He also noted that steps should be taken to forge links with Bhikkhus in Temples in the Northern parts of the country”,the thera said .
Chief Patron Thisarana Bauddha Madyasthanaya and Head of the Institute of Buddhist and Pali Studies Ven Dr Pategama Gnanarama Thera presented a special memento to President Rajapaksa on behalf of the Maha Sangha engaged in Dhammaduta activities in Singapore. Singapore Meditation Centre Director Ven Weragoda Sarada Thera presented an illustrated copy of the book ‘Buddha Charithaya’ to President Rajapaksa.
The Maha Sangha thereafter chanted seth pirith and involved blessings on the President.First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa, External Affairs Minister Prof G L Peiris, Parliamentarian Sajin Vaas Gunawardena and Secretary to the President Lalith Weeratunge were also present on the occasion.

yes we all srilanken know that,that is why srilanka won the war against tamil terroristen.God bless Mr.M.R.
Did he visit his ailing compatriot, the drug baron turned street killer. in hospital before or after the blessings of the monks?
Kudu-Duminda will not dare return to SL at the moment, even though the evidence of murder against him has been erased on orders from ‘above’ by the CID. Natural justice will catch-up with him eventually. He has committed many serious crimes and escaped with help from ‘powerful men’, to their eternal shame. By aiding and abetting a criminal they are just as guilty. He cannot escape God’s justice! “Vengeance is Mine. I will repay” says the Lord.
Hon Duminda Silva, MP, Supervising MP of the Defence Ministry will return to Sri Lanka when he is well enough to do so.
The Kurakkan Satakaya regime is built on drug trade, extortion, skin trade, commissions and extr-judicial executions.
It cannot survive without any of these foundations and key players who feed the regime with energy.
The leadership and judgement is so…… good that he gives a Ministership in PUBLIC RELATIONS to a subhuman who ties another man to a tree, underworld king pin, plays out multi millions from his poor electorate, talks in filth etc etc
Similarly he gives a Supervising ministership in Defence/ Law and Order to a thug, a drug lord,a rapist….. oops no wonder he kills again!!!
What a fearless leadership !
Yes guys.., according to everything we know as above, it appears that there’re good & bad both have done by MR. That’s it.
Some of His bad acts mentioned in above comments. Whenever He’ll ‘pay’ for it too.
Then, today we srilankans enjoy social freedom & freedom of terrorism which had NOT under UNP governments since 1980. Those’re some of key good things done by MRs govt. Whenever He’ll benefit for it too.
So, that’s the truth which on one can refuse.
Then is there anyone who does only good & not doing any bad.? NO.! We’re all have good & bad both.!
So, don’t blame others as BLIND FOOLS while you’ve also f..king FAULTS…!!!
This world contain good & bad both. So we must LEARN 1st good & bad. then try to avoid bad & except good by SELF. Not only looking always others faults as gossip mongers..!
BE PERFECT YOURSELF 1ST & then advise others. Otherwise what a fool cares your word..?
In blog No 3 you say “He has committed many serious crimes and escaped with help from ‘powerful men’, to their eternal shame” refering to Kudu Duminda. Who are these ‘powerful men’ whom you are refering to. You seem to portray yourself as having lots of guts. If so could you name them or will you go and hide in a corner?
