Mr Sugash Kanagaratnam of Vaddukoddai stated publicly
about the March – Pottuvil to Polikandy – that it was an overwhelming success
and that about 100,000 participated in the March. Mr Kanagaratnam stated that they had expected
only about 50,000. In relation to the voting process in which 1.1 million participated
from north and east – the numbers are only 9% of the voting population. Even if
a minority of One had Marched with belief in the purpose, Universal Powers
would have been invoked. When belief is the root – the manifestation is the Ultimate
Reality / Nirvana / Fact/s
Is the above statement confirmation of
success? There is a Tamil saying that the seen and the heard lies but that
which we inquire into thoroughly and discover is fact. This is also the motto
of the University of Jaffna – the Alma Mater of Mr Sugash Kanagaratnam.
In Sri Lanka, ‘Majority rule only’ has been the main cause
of our problems as minorities. Hence all statements on the basis of the seen only,
need to be eliminated from our conclusions.
Jaffna Tamil paper Eelanadu has reported
without concluding. But the focus of its editorial is about religious leadership
in Politics and includes mention of Ellawala Medhananda Thero about whom, Wikipedia
presents the following picture:
[Ellawala Medhananda Thero is a Sri Lankan politician and a former
member of the Parliament of Sri Lanka. He had also organized many charities and engaged himself in
educational activities in under-prevailed rural communities. As an
academic scholar (see Pieris, op. cit.) he has published 40 books of academic and
archaeological research of which the book on the "Sinhala-Buddhist
Heritage in the Northern and Eastern Provinces" published in 2003 by
Jayakody Publishers in Colombo is most well known Medhananda was a parliamentarian
elected by the Jathika Hela Urumaya, a party which campaigned for the rights of
Buddhists. As a consequence, many Marxist as well as Tamil separatist writers
have criticized him for his alleged right-wing political leanings and
pro-majoritarian sentiments. He presented himself for elections
only once. Since then he has devoted himself to charitable works, teaching and
scholarly activities in rural regions of Sri Lanka]
How do we manage majority power without adversely affecting minorities?
The tendency with those
emotionally driven is to ‘show’ majority power or access to it when needed. In
terms of Tamils of Sri Lanka this is usually done through India’s Tamil Nadu
whose population is three times as big as Sri Lanka’s.
main thrust of the protest seems to be the claim of ‘Buddhist Heritage’ by the
government in various ways.
When ‘Sinhala-Buddhist Heritage in
the Northern and Eastern Provinces’ is brought into the picture in addition to
current majority status – it becomes like Corona Virus – due to its exponential
spread. Whether it is Punniyam / Virtue or Paavam / sin – it is exponential and
independent Universal power – beyond our control.
When we also match it by our
own claims we also would be affected exponentially . It is for this reason that
Saint Yoga Swami of Nallur said ‘Summa Iru’ – which means ‘be still’. The recommendation
by Walter Bagehot in terms of the English Constitution also indicates this need
to ‘be still’ to uphold one’s dignity. The Hindu Legend in which Lord Ganesh
went around His parents as if they were His whole world also confirms this .
Nirvana in Buddhism also confirms this.
Heritage confirms commonness
through time. This needs to be still for us to be supported by Universal Power.
When used for current credits its costs also surface and do so exponentially.
One such act was the removal
of the Special Task Force officers guarding Tamil
National Alliance Member of Parliament M A Sumanthiran who had this facility
after there were death threats against him. It happened because he became ‘active’
to ‘show’ efficiency.
of the LTTE members I worked with in 2003 through UNDP project, demonstrated
any commitment to ‘heritage’. If they had, it is highly likely that they would
have become inactive in terms of ‘winning’ as per their chosen pathway.
the British, we also have Kings and Queens in the Tamil community. Preserving
heritage is their / our primary responsibility. Some were killed by those who chose the armed
pathway. In terms of karma, we need to first discipline ourselves to include
them as part of ourselves and repent on their behalf. That is when our heritage
is purified and restored to its original value.
of the Marchers – including the politicians have contributed to this purification
of our own heritage. Heritage to heritage – there is commonness. When each
group preserves its own heritage as facilitated by articles 10 & 14 of the
Sri Lankan Constitution, the ‘fighting’ would be limited to level of sports.
current contribution in Northern Sri Lanka is to preserve my heritage,
including through our temple in Thunaivi, Vaddukoddai – not too far from the
office of Mr
Sugash Kanagaratnam. He is yet to walk from his office to mine to confirm his recognition
of the elimination of the curse of Vaddukoddai – unjust discrimination
on the basis of Caste.
Gandhi while fighting against the British purified
India’s heritage that was seriously damaged by caste and gender based
discrimination. Even his death confirm the excesses of active work by majority
religious group. In Sri Lanka Mr SWRD Bandaranaike was killed in his third year
in office. Mr SWRD Bandaranaike’s government passed the Sinhala Only Act to Parliament in July 1956 – within 3 months of his term as
Prime Minister. The dignity of Sri Lankan heritage which included the
contribution of British to commonness in Lankans was seriously damaged. This
will be repeated in all communities of Sri Lanka that work to ‘win’ and in the
process, damage the heritage that is close to Common Spirit of Nirvana. When Hindus, Muslims and Christians react to
Buddhists – they become like them when they win.
I took Yoga Swami’s advice of ‘Summa Iru’ and stopped myself from writing to a victim of
the changes in the system at University of NSW. I stopped because of my faith
in Swami. Later I realised that it was to let the Truth manifest Itself to ‘show’
the massive damage to the core values of the University. Mr Velan who has been
presented as a Saint and who was in the first row of the protest march, obviously
does not believe in Yoga Swami and therefore Nallur Murugan.
