Tamil Hunter Genes Lead Lanka

Zero and Absolute have no physical form. One is totally dependent whilst the other is fully independent. Fundamental values that laws are based on, require the latter. What happens when they are not?

Let us take for example  - ‘Buddhism foremost’ article in the Sri Lankan constitution. ‘Foremost’ confirms that it is not absolute. As per my knowledge, this is never used in practice. I believe that Buddha himself attained Nirvana/Ultimate Reality. Hence why has no government written down the laws of Buddhism as applicable to Sri Lanka? Is it of zero value in the constitution? Does it therefore keep diluting the governance values of other parts of the constitution that are actually practiced by the People?

If Buddhism is the law of Sri Lanka – then Buddha is the Absolute power. How can then a President be immune from prosecution – as if s/he were less than the Absolute Power of Buddha?

Is a citizen who believes in Buddha immune from prosecution as if he were Buddha? If on the other hand, the Constitution is Democratic and the president is democratically elected, and such election was based on Belief, such a person is entitled to immunity from prosecution because of that absolute value of belief. Such a person is the parallel of Buddha in a Buddhist system. In a Democracy even if one citizen is not a Buddhist   there is no completion through Buddhism and therefore no entitlement to immunity from prosecution. Hence there can be no presidential pardons. Where there are – the naturally downgrade the value of the written law.

As we keep learning, the current government is including in its makeup those who have been convicted by the Judiciary. To the extent it is belief based – our civilization is limited to that level. This is NOT Buddhism nor Christianity.  It is true of some parts of Hinduism – in the form practiced by hunters and other primitive tribes. Hindu Saint Kannappa Nayanar was a hunter and he offered meat to Lord Shiva. His name was Thinna and Wikipedia presents the legend as follows:

[Thinna noticed that one of the eyes of the Shiva linga was oozing blood and tears. Sensing that Lord Sri Bhalanetra's eye had been injured, Thinna proceeded to pluck his one eye out with one of his arrows and placed it in the spot of the bleeding eye of the Shiva linga. This stopped the bleeding in that eye of the linga. But to complicate matters further, he noticed that the other eye of the linga has also started oozing blood. So Thinna thought that if he were to pluck his other eye too, he would become blind to exactly know the spot where he has to place his own second eye over the bleeding second eye of the lingam. So he placed his great toe on the linga to mark the spot of the bleeding second eye and proceeded to pluck out his other and only eye. Moved by his extreme devotion, Lord Sri Priyabhakta appeared before Thinna and restored both his eyes. He made Thinna one of the Nayanmars and he was called as Kannappan or Kannappa Nayanar.]

Lankans who carry Veddha/Hunter genes would find the laws of Sri Lanka to be foreign. The likes of Premalal Jayasekara and Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan – if they were elected through due processes – confirm the existence of such groups. This is true also of armed militants – both in South as well as in North. LTTE leader Prabhakaran was such a leader in North.

Martyr Thileepan belonged in that group. Martyr Thileepan’s memorial falls today. Those who are seeking to hold memorials for Martyr Thileepan would forego their own body and not seek Judicial approval to do so. If someone who died to uphold the law was to be remembered, the Judiciary has the duty to facilitate such a memorial. When militant supporters make such a claim – it is lacking in belief and therefore is frivolous. When Mr Wigneswaran who carries the title of Justice claims it – it is like a Hindu priest offering meat to Lord Shiva/Guru Thevo Maheshara.
