LOVE CONQUERS ALL
03 July 2022
Today is the birth anniversary of our aunt Mrs Padma Sanmugarajah. I believe that when we remember loved ones as if they are currently with us, and appreciate their goodness, we canonize their goodness. If we owe them and fail to settle it even after death, we inherit the opposite of their good qualities, or worse their bad qualities, if any. As per my discovery, when we pay our respects to our ancestors, we inherit their positive aspects. They mutate as per our true need.
I was therefore unhappy to read the article ‘Shock reason Sri Lankan-Australians won’t send money to struggling friends and family’ at https://www.news.com.au/world/asia/shock-reason-sri-lankanaustralians-wont-send-money-to-struggling-friends-and-family/news-story/ea6912fd118d884becb8bbe60f859ef0
As per the above:
[Sri Lankans living in Australia are refraining from sending desperately-needed funds to struggling friends and family back home, fearing money will never end up in the hands of those in need because the government will steal it.]
The names in the report were Sinhalese, who in Sri Lanka hold majority power to elect government. For example:
[Upul Chandana, 49, is the secretary of the North Victoria Sri Lankan Welfare and Cultural Association.
He says the Sri Lankan community feels powerless….. Mr Chandana is also secretary of the Samadhi Buddhist Association and volunteers for the Craigieburn SES unit]
