PROSTITUTION & THE DIASPORA

Mr Sirisena who caused the 2018 Constitutional Crisis as President of Sri Lanka, is now blaming the economic collapse for increase in Sri Lanka’s sex trade:

[“Girl children (gahanu daruwan) from unimaginable (hithun-ner-wuth beri) families are turning to prostitution in a large scale according to what police officials tell us,” ex-President Sirisena was quoted as saying at his party headquarters by Sri Lanka’s Aruna newspaper.] https://economynext.com/sri-lanka-girls-from-unimaginable-backgrounds-driven-sex-trade-by-currency-crisis-ex-president-100561/

If there is a group of  - ‘unimaginable (hithun-ner-wuth beri) families in a presidential mind, there must also be an imaginable group that opposes this unimaginable group. That is the fundamental principle of democracy.  Development of the positive value group is the duty of the democratically elected government.

This development is blocked when there is favouritism on social basis.  Mr Sirisena has drawn the lines of demarcation as ‘good families’ and ‘bad families’, as he did against the gay community during the 2018 Constitutional crisis.

Economy first is grouping prostitution with out-migration. They are both money-earning activities for Sri Lanka.  

[Out-migration as well as prostitution are routine trends seen in countries with Sri Lanka style central banks in Latin America whose currencies collapse steeply analysts have warned when the country started on on a devaluationist path]

 

According to the above, Prostitutes are the parallels of the Diaspora that continues to be involved with Sri Lankan issues. Within the Diaspora also there are those who are positive and those who are negative.  

At fundamental level, prostitution happens when sexual pleasures are rendered for money benefits. When it happens within the boundaries of marriage also – it amounts to prostitution. In Northern Sri Lanka, the law of  Thesawalamai,  minimises this risk of Prostitution in marriage through the conditions governing  the dowry system. When the Mallakam District Court disturbed this ancestral value, in the testamentary case where my husband and I were respondents, I disciplined both side lawyers by stating from my allocated area – that I was ‘not a prostitute’. I later realised that I did so due to my belief-based respect for my ancestors who gave us the law of  Thesawalamai which is a perfect law in terms of inheritance.

In Sri Lankan law common to all communities, prostitution is unlawful. Wikipedia presents the following picture of reality:

[Sri Lanka is primarily a source, destination, and, to a lesser extent, a transit country for women and children subjected to sex trafficking. Some Sri Lankan women are subjected to forced prostitution in CyprusMaldivesMalaysiaSingaporeThailand, and elsewhere. Within the country, women and children are subjected to sex trafficking in brothels. Boys are more likely than girls to be exploited in commercial sex in coastal areas for child sex tourism. In recent years, a small number of women from other Asian and Central Asian countries have been subjected to forced prostitution in Sri Lanka. Police reportedly accept bribes to permit brothels to operate, some of which exploit trafficking victims. Sub-agents collude with officials to procure fake or falsified travel documents to facilitate travel of Sri Lankans abroad]

 

To the extent we emigrate un-righteously, the negative Energy within us would mutate to make us un-righteous in our new nations, where prostitution may be legal. One who has settled her/his debts to her/his home community in Sri Lanka would carry those community laws as positive ancestral powers and v.v. When they resource Sri Lanka, the value would be exponentially global.

HIGH SECURITY ZONE & PTA

 

As per my experience when I share my belief, other believers in the issue share their belief with me. The forms may differ, but we develop ‘commonness’. This commonness develops into Sovereign power that leads and supports us from within. Some of these return forms are in Opposition. They contribute to a ceiling on the manifestation, at that level – so others are also facilitated to participate at the Common level.

Yesterday, I wrote about the need to maintain the PTA. Today, I was directed to  "We don't need a high security zone" at  https://youtu.be/tVqYcYdVzu0 

The expressions by the ‘protestor’ are in Opposition to mine. The line of Common manifestation is drawn at that level.  Then there is the report on this issue at https://www.dailymirror.lk/latest_news/Police-to-quiz-some-politicos-over-secret-plot-to-overthrow-govt/342-245839  ,

according to which:

[The police have launched extensive investigations over the involvement of some politicians who had encouraged some ‘protester’ groups to overthrow the government by forcefully occupying Parliament and preventing a vote to elect a new President following the resignation of former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in July.]

The above, is in line with my own expressions at the time of manifestations. They also confirm the need for PTA which was enacted in 1978. As per Wikipedia:

[Under the PTA of Sri Lanka, a person can be detained for periods up to 18 months (renewable by order every three months) if the Minister has reason to believe or suspect that any person is connected with or concerned in any unlawful activity. Unlawful activity includes even pasting posters on walls, and is punishable with death]

 

If therefore the President therefore ‘suspected’ that the Protestor in the above video was influenced by those against the Parliament, he has the power of the law to imprison that lady. Given that this has not happened, I conclude that the President and the Police are not abusers of the law. This approach confirms the ancestral value of PTA which need to be left undisturbed for current purposes.

The power of belief was today confirmed through the message headed ‘Federal Senate of Brazil pays tribute to the Institute of Sathya Sai Education of Brazil.’ at https://www.sathyasai.org/bulletins

 

My response to the communication included the following:

[This message brings to my mind, the legend of Poosala Nayanar :

[Pusalar was a Shaiva, a devotee of the god Shiva. He wanted to create a grand temple for Shiva, but did not have the money to do so. Thus, Pusalar decided to build a temple to Shiva in his mind with his imagination. He followed the rituals of temple-building, sanctified the ground and lay the first stone of his mind temple on an auspicious day. Over course of time, he completed his mind temple and selected a holy day for the Kumbhabhishekam ceremony, when the temple is consecrated and the image of God installed in the garbhagriha (sanctum sanctorum)…. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pusalar

 

My question to you and this group of  Sri Lankans is – Are you (1) the followers of the king who built a grand temple, (2) the heirs of Poosala Nayanar or (3)  neither? The king of this group is Mr XXX who as per my knowledge is not a devotee of Swami Sathya Sai Baba. Dr Kkk who chose to share this, has listed Mr XXX, first on his list.  If the sharing was belief based, Swami would have appeared in  Dr Kkk’s dream and indicated to him the true order as per belief. Your belief in Sri Lanka – which is common to us, has influenced you to share with me. Thank you. This group, like the Rajapaksa family, is driven by the visible connections. They would promote their own clan and be comfortable with it. They will be failures in Democracy which we have inherited through Poosala Nayanar.

PTA AND ITS OPPOSITION – GENOCIDE CLAIM

Laws are of two types. One like the Parliament, is current and they mark us right or wrong as per our current actions. The other is ancestral like the Queen/King and confirms Preventive  power. Examples of this are  the British Royalty, and ‘Buddhism foremost article’ in the Sri Lankan constitution. Both are Preventive heritages.

When invoked for current benefits, they would result in exponential costs. The global example is the disturbance to World Heritage – the Silk Road by China, resulting in the Covid Pandemic. At Sri Lankan level, the immediate past President disturbed the ‘Buddhism-heritage’ after using the Secular pathway to occupy the position of Head of State in the secular structure. This resulted in exponential economic collapse and the self-dismissal of the President.

 

Now, the Tamil National Alliance is on a campaign to repeal the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) https://www.themorning.lk/tna-led-anti-pta-campaign-ends-next-week/

 

Which of the above two does the PTA belong to,  at the level of the Tamil community – current need or ancestral protection?

Yesterday a Tamil elder shared his concerns with me as follows:

[Tamil Political prisoners arrested under draconian PTA  still in jail

PTA is misused to arrest and torture Tamil youths. ]

My immediate response was:

‘Many nations still carry LTTE on their Terrorists- listing. If we seek the energy of those nations, we need to confirm that through affirmative actions, in law and order that we are not Terrorists.’

If we believe that we as a community,  did not need PTA in the first instance, then we have to accept political killings as unpunishable by our current laws, and therefore we consider the Politicians who were killed to be part of the ‘freedom costs’.

This then gives us a recent origin, with armed rebels as our ancestors. That would be the Ancestral power that would support us naturally and exponentially. This would be only when there is a war.

If on the other hand, we consider the armed rebels ‘guilty’ of war crimes, using the same measure that we used with the Sri Lankan government at UN level, then PTA becomes an ancestral law that protects our ancestral powers in civilian life also. Ancestral powers awaken themselves to protect us when we are in need.

If therefore, the current campaign to repeal the PTA is successful, then any future attacks by other communities and foreign powers would need very strong current laws, to mark rights and wrongs. We would also need to campaign to repeal all cultural laws older than the PTA. The Tamil law of Theswalamai, Sinhalese Kandyan law and Muslim law in Sri Lanka, are all laws that protect our ancestral powers. By practicing them with respect, we strengthen our ancestral powers which naturally offset the ‘unsettled wrongs’ that have become sins.  That is how ancestral debts are settled.

I presented this as follows to the above mentioned Tamil elder who stated:

No response for the genocide of 147,000 Tamils [UN estimated 80,000]

My response:

But we as a community have not addressed Tamil rebels killing Tamil politicians. That is then the level of impunity that we have allowed ourselves. To that extent, we lost the moral authority to accuse another community of ‘genocide’.

If therefore PTA is repealed, so should the ‘Genocide’ accusation. That would be a huge loss to Tamil Politicians in National Parliament. These would apply also to Sinhalese Political parties such as the JVP who took up arms to come to power.

GENOCIDE CLAIM KILLED BY CHIEF MINISTER

Democracy is based on majority power of the ruled. Autocracy is based on the power of the ruler. When one is active, the other becomes Energy. This is like the sins or virtues in a horoscope, drawn up as per the stars at the time of our birth. Where the brought forward Energy is stronger than the Energy generated by the current system, there is an exponential collapse of the current system. This happened in Sri Lanka, through Buddhism being used actively alongside the secular system. By taking oaths at Buddhist shrine, the immediate past president OF Sri Lanka, made Buddha Sasana, the current constitution and Secular law, an ancestral power, driven by its own power. This led to Democracy becoming an ancestral power. Global powers therefore opposed him and his government.

Buddhism in Sri Lanka is an ancestral power. Mr SWRD Bandaranaike, whose death anniversary was on 26 September, was the first political head of Sri Lanka, to become a victim of his own ‘Sinhala only’ language policy which has now mutated as ‘Buddhism Foremost’ article in the constitution. The Buddhist influence is confirmed as follows by Wikipedia presentation:

 [On 25 September, Somarama had visited Bandaranaike at his private residence, Tintagel, in Rosmead Place, Colombo. Since Somarama appeared to be a member of the Buddhist clergy, he was not searched for weapons and given free access to the prime minister as he began his routine meetings with the public. The monk then fired a revolver at Bandaranaike as the latter stood to greet him; he was rushed to hospital but died the following day despite six hours of surgery by Ceylon's most skilled surgeons. A Supreme court trial found Somarama, Mapitigama Buddharakkitha, H.P. Jayewardena guilty and pronounced on all three of them the death sentence (death by hanging)]

 

Given that all concerned were practicing Buddhists – their punishments also ought to have been as per Buddhist laws, to be a natural deterrent in a Buddhist nation.  Colonial law became ancestral power during  SWRD Bandaranaike’s rule. When ancestral power is murdered, the result is exponential punishment. The Corona virus is such an example of self-punishment.  This is prevented  by settling our Pithur Kadan/Ancestral Debt. This will lead to positive Ancestral Energy supporting us. It cannot be settled by a currently active relative system.

 

Former Chief Minister of Northern Province of Sri Lanka, activated LTTE power and thus earned the negative Energy of the lawful path. As per the report ‘Wiggy proposes regional councils at provincial level’ at https://www.themorning.lk/wiggy-proposes-regional-councils-at-provincial-level/   :

 

[Thamil Makkal Thesiya Kuttani (TMTK) Leader and Jaffna District MP C.V. Wigneswaran said yesterday (26) that he had requested Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena to constitute Regional Councils for each province since every province has different issues. 

Speaking to The Morning, Wigneswaran said that since the problems in the North are different to those in the South, he had therefore suggested to Gunawardena to establish regional councils in every province. “Our problems in the North are different to those of the South. I suggested that we have Regional Councils for each province,” he added. ]

The above is the parallel of ‘Sinhala only’ policy by SWRD Bandaranaike. It is no coincidence that this policy was made public on the death anniversary of SWRD Bandaranaike -  Hindu Wigneswaran’s natural opposition by belief.

In turn, Tamils driven by ‘hearsay’ are finding fault with the queen who represents our Common British Ancestry.

Hence the following contradiction:

[He also noted that he had suggested that Prime Minister Gunawardena visit the North to ascertain the problems there and seek solutions.]

How can the mind that is ‘common’ or is opposed to Tamil Nationalism be expected to read / identify with the problems of Tamils? The LTTE would punish him as a Traitor

Mr Wigneswaran has thus killed his own ‘Genocide claim’. One who truly believed that it was Genocide, would not pollute that area by inviting a member of the very same government to identify with the problem and facilitate a solution. This invitation has confirmed that Mr Wigneswaran has already killed the Genocide claim.

SRI LANKAN DIASPORA’S DEBT

 

Does a child owe its mother? If yes, how is that debt settled? What happens if the debt is not settled?

When we have our own belief-based answers to these questions they would apply also to the motherland. These questions came to my mind when reading Sunday Observer Editorial ‘Engaging the Diaspora’ at http://www.sundayobserver.lk/2022/09/25/editorial/engaging-diaspora

As per the editorial:

[President Wickremesinghe understands perfectly well the need to engage with the members of the Sri Lankan Diaspora, most of whom would like to “pay it forward” as far as their brethren in Sri Lanka are concerned. After all, most, if not all, expatriates have received free education and free healthcare in the land of their birth and are duty bound to help their countrymen back home who funded their education.

Hence the President’s timely invitation in London to the Diaspora to invest in all areas of Sri Lanka, not just in the North and the East. He painted a true picture of the rather dire situation at home in extending this invitation. We hope that the Diaspora will take up this offer and help their Motherland in its hour of need.]

Whether one owes the land one is born in is the key question here. What happens if one were made to feel like a Terrorist in one’s Motherland? Does that Mother also become a Terrorist and does the land also become Terrorist Land? Recently, a young Australian law student shared with us her University experience in this regard and asked the question as to what picture came to mind when one heard the word ‘Terrorist?’

Let’s analyse through the following passage from the editorial:

[It has been 13 years since the battle against terrorism ended and now it is time to give up these discriminatory labels for good. As President Wickremesinghe has repeatedly said since assuming office, the Sri Lankan Diaspora means just that – all Sri Lankans of all ethnicities and religious groups living abroad. It is in this context that the President met the Sri Lankan community in the UK.

Prior to that, soon after ascending to the Presidency, he had ordered the de-proscription of certain Diaspora groups which had given up their separatist sentiments and aspirations to all intents and purposes. This has been welcomed by the Sri Lankan Tamil community all over the world and many such groups have since vowed to work together with the Government of Sri Lanka to achieve lasting peace and reconciliation.]

 

If there are no Terrorists in Sri Lanka, then why do we need the Prevention of Terrorism Act that was activated by President Wickremesinghe ?

In terms of the LTTE, the Tamil community taken as a whole, would classify them as armed rebels and not as Terrorists. The editor of Sunday Observer refers to them as Terrorists.

13 years ago, the Sri Lankan government took the path of Retributive Justice. This meant that every Tamil who felt that the LTTE were rebels was alienated.  

The Sunday Observer has published an interview with Sri Lanka’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Ali Sabry (http://www.sundayobserver.lk/2022/09/25/opinion/sri-lanka-confident-chances-geneva-vote-ali-sabry )which includes the following:

 

[Q:  Has Sri Lanka made any tangible progress with regard to the human rights situation in the country as demanded by the Core Group and other countries at the UNHRC?

A: Yes. I mean not because anyone demands it but we have done that very well. If you look at it after the battle against terrorism, 12,194 LTTE cadres surrendered and all of them were rehabilitated and reintegrated.]

As per Wikipedia:

 

[Retributive justice contrasts with other purposes of punishment such as deterrence (prevention of future crimes) and rehabilitation of the offender.]

Additional rehabilitation on top of taking an ‘eye for an eye’ through the war – is double punishment. Do members of  the community that was so punished, legitimately owe the Motherland at the same level as those members of another  community NOT listed as Terrorists  for identical actions?

When a government punishes a citizen unjustly, that automatically causes debt owed to that citizen by the government and does so exponentially. Where such citizens fled Sri Lanka for that reason, they do not owe Sri Lanka. Their new Motherland is the new Nation that adopted them. The Tamil Diaspora has a good proportion of such folks who have no debt owed to Sri  Lanka.
