Revolutionary politics influences Buddhism

Lives of more than 40,000 monks were lost to the country responsibility to programming by revolutionary parties. As an alternative of the Buddhist teaching, those monks pursued political agendas, Buddhist Cultural Center Director Ven Kirama Wimalajothi Thera said in Sri Lanka.

Transfering a message to the JVP the Thera said: The majority of the temples have become empty and abandoned due to the scarcity of Buddhist monks. Buddhists are stranded in life due to be deficient in well informed monks to offer proper leadership to them.

This has really spoiled language, literature and culture. This condition suited the agendas of certain NGOs.

The monks who were related to political activities with the JVP were lost to their parents, teachers and supporters. Because of the demolition the JVP has done it formed their defeat in the final election.

If they would be able to rearrange, escaping harmful activities of their branch every person will bless them, the Thera said.

Young monks should be well-informed under the Buddhist teaching in Pirivenas, or another appropriate higher education institute to accomplish the expectations of the fated life.

The JVP created protectiveness, hatred and anger among young monks instead of fondness, loving-kindness to obtain the political achievements.

Variation of young monks to the political activities is the largest violation of the human rights, said by the Thera.
