GO OR TO STAY
[“In the name of God, go!” – Oliver Cromwell, 20 April 1653,
Two weeks from today, nearly 400 years ago, Oliver Cromwell sacked a
corrupt British parliament (the Long Parliament) and scolded away its MPs, “You
have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let
us have done with you. In the name of God, go”.] Rajan Philips at https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/in-the-name-of-god-go/
But Oliver Cromwell wrote also :
[ "as for the
people, what thoughts they have in the matter of religion in their own breasts
I cannot reach; but I shall think it my duty, if they walk honestly and
peaceably, not to cause them in the least to suffer for the same.]
If the current Leader of the Opposition had been an
Army leader and then he had stated the above as Oliver Cromwell did – that would
have been valid. But if Mr Sajith Premadasa asked the government to go home
that would be copying Oliver Cromwell.
Whether Sajith is conscious of it or not – he has inherited his father’s
political heritage and therefore includes the karma in the following Wikipedia report
about his father:
[His handling of the country's civil war was less successful.
In the north, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil
Eelam were facing off against the Indian Peace-Keeping Force the Indian presence on the island was unpopular, and
Premadasa requested India to pull out its troops. In order to force the IPKF to
leave the island, he authorized a clandestine operation to supply arms to
LTTE to fight the Tamil National Army formed by the IPKF, a collusion that came to light in the report
published by the Sri Lankan Presidential Commission to inquire into the 1992
assassination of Lieutenant General Denzil Kobbekaduwa. While the IPKF was recalled by New Delhi in
1990, the government's war with the LTTE resumed, beginning Eelam War II, which ended in a stalemate five years later. The 1990 massacre of Sri Lankan
Police officers, which occurred after the policemen were asked to
surrender to the LTTE in Batticaloa at Premadasa's request, was later
established to have been performed with the same weapons he had supplied them]
effect the heritage from father to son was to ‘separate’ from India – which is
the regional leader. This heritage included also the partnership with the LTTE
to oust the Indian Peace Keeping Force.
the People were asking the current government to ‘go home’ – then they must not
have suffered seriously during the war.
who did suffer and accepted that pain due to actions beyond their control, develop
their own natural laws. These laws connect them to Universal Powers which come
I responded as follows, to a Tamil who highlighted parts of analyses based on
Mr Gajendrakumar Ponnambalam’s speech in Parliament – highlighting high Defence
allocation in the Budget:
notice that Tsunami Reconstruction work is also highlighted. I was part of that
program – which I believe happened due to the difficulties I endured in 2003 –
while working in Vanni. I wrote the report for TRO which lacked the resources.
On my own – as per my intuition – I submitted the report to President
Kumaratunga. During that experience I noted the Australian High Commission’s
group trying to ‘takeover’ power through their own local NGO. The Diaspora
groups were not there at all. Mankerny folks got their homes and wanted me to
come despite the train strike in 2008. This led to my experience of Divine Yoga
Swami guiding me and confirming that true service is forever. Yesterday for
example – we celebrated my cousin in law’s life through memorial service at our
family temple in Sangarathai-Vaddukoddai. This happened because of his wife’s
faith in the system and also because her husband identified with the value of
our investment in Thunaivi. Heavy rain poured only after the sweet rice was
made outside the sheltered area. Later here in Sydney we watched without any
plan – the movie ‘The In-between’. In essence those who have deep insight
– believe that the soul of the departed loved ones continue to live with them.
That is how amazing the power of truth is.
LTTE would continue to live for those who loved them
and were loyal to them. Likewise politicians. Those who read at surface level
tend to gamble.]
My cousin who received photos of the service in Sri
Lanka wrote to me that her husband had come in her dream and that she felt he
was happy. When my cousin shared with me – she had no knowledge about the
connection I made with the film. To those who do not believe – these would seem
like coincidences. The believer sees deep and connects to the truth within.
As per Dharma – the government that created the mess has
the first responsibility to bring back order. The current situation is
interlocutory. As per Dharma, unless the Opposition caused the call in
Parliament – before the People did – it has no mandate to ask the government to
step down. The elected government has that mandate to facilitate fresh
elections. Until then we have the responsibility to ‘wait & observe’.
