SRI LANKANS HAVE CONFESSED TO NEEDING EXECUTIVE PRESIDENCY
“In June 2018, while addressing a public event in Jaffna recently, Vijayakala said the LTTE should be resurrected to ensure the freedom of Tamil people in the Northern Province.” - Wikipedia
That was a call for executive presidency. Four years later Southerners have confessed to needing Executive Presidency to preserve Sri Lanka’s heritage of self governance that I enjoyed, despite the ethnic riots.
Yesterday, I highlighted the following from the Ceylon Today Editorial:
[Unfortunately, the events that followed inside those historic State buildings were nothing short of tragic. It is true that the elected leaders kept the doors of those buildings closed to the ordinary general public, shielding from their eyes the kinds of luxury they enjoyed at the public expense.
However, those three buildings – now ransacked and vandalised – are part of this country’s historical and cultural heritage. They contain historic documents, invaluable paintings, mementoes and souvenirs brought here by foreign dignitaries to mark their visits, all of which are part of this country’s heritage and should be preserved for posterity.]
When there is a law, it confirms a structure. When there is structure, there are positions. When there are positions – the senior foregoes pleasures / benefits that become common value. The junior foregoes her/himself to become eligible for the enjoyment of benefits that the senior had foregone – directly and/or via the common pool. Thus as a whole, they maintain their sovereignty. Within that whole they are relatives. The whole is known as family.
In the case of protestors – they did not have such a structure. Lord Buddha & Mahatma Gandhi both renounced all that they had earned to become part of the group they sought to uplift.
Below is a conversation with veteran media coordinator Yoga Joseph, in relation to my yesterday’s article ‘ONLY A TRUE BUDDHIST CAN BECOME PRESIDENT OF SRI LANKA’
Yoga: DEAR MADAM.
WHERE CAN YOU FIND THE TRUE BUDDHISTS IN SRI LANKA WHO FOLLOWS THE TEACHINGS OF GAUTAMA BUDDHA?
FOR 70+ YEARS THE COUNTRY WAS MISRULED BY FAKE BUDDHIST RACIST CROOKS CRIMINALS MOBSTERS MURDERERS WHO HAVE LOOTED DESTRUCTED DESTROYED & BANKRUPTED THE COUNTRY WHICH IS MORE OR LESS A FAILED STATE NOW.
THE TAMILS HAVE SUFFERED FAR TOO MUCH & DO NOT NEED SUCH PRESIDENTS OR PREMIERS.
IT IS TIME FOR THE NORTH & EAST TO BE SEPARATED FROM THESE SAVAGES & FOR THE TAMILS TO MANAGE THEIR OWN AFFAIRS.
Gaja: Thank you Yoga. The true Buddha is one who renounces inherited Royalty to earn status from zero base and do so by living as one of the citizens with most junior position. That is what Gandhi also did. The reason why I wrote is to confirm that any communist to whom communism is the leading force, becomes ineligible to lead a Buddhist society – due to article 9 of the constitution. That was given birth due to the 1971 JVP insurrection. Warm Regards, Gajalakshmi
The hidden need in Buddhism Foremost article in the Sri Lankan constitution is Executive Presidency – due to JVP insurrection which promoted the junior castes headed by Karava caste. LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran also was from that caste – known as Karaiyaar – those along the coast. Due to living with junior caste as one of them, I developed this intuitive intelligence – which was later confirmed by published reports. Anyone who sacrifices for the common good would develop this. That is the beauty of commonness.
When I presented, to the Sri Lanka Reconciliation Forum, Sydney, my discovery that the LTTE fighting was due to caste and former Attorney General Mr Sunil de Silva PC, stated that that was also the case with JVP, Mr Premakumar Gunaratnam who has since become the leader of FSP (Frontline Socialist Party) – overruled the former Attorney General and stated that JVP’s uprising was due to unemployment. They are fundamentally the same, in a society where majority high positions were held by senior castes. The Rajapaksa family belong to the senior caste. This was their handicap.
Living in Thunaivi, a toddy tapper village in Northern Sri Lanka, I had the parallel experience to the Rajapaksas – when I went to the Police as a last resort, to report a trespasser into our temple grounds. Our cottage roof was stoned that night and I left the cottage, the following morning. Have since gone back to preserve the heritage value of our temple. We are now gradually developing a system through which both – junior castes as well as senior castes pray in common. The workers are also from both groups.
The Rajapksas failed to ‘sacrifice’ but rather ‘shared’ their benefits – largely as handouts. The juniors did not complain, so long as they received benefits and opportunities to ‘fight’ – which was natural to them – as confirmed by JVP. It is also Divine attribute that comes from the Universal Common Pool which fills the gap at soul level. I learnt this through my Australian experience confirmed by the Deva Dasis who were skilled in the art of sex as a service regulated by Kamasutra. Later when they were treated as prostitutes, those who were pure through their service to god – developed exceptional artistic skills.
Deva Dasis actually marry god through Pottukattu ceremony. Where a junior provides humble service to the senior – as if the senior is that art / divinity, the service is received at the level of the true position holder which often is not the apparent occupier of the position.
Yesterday, I completed my article ‘FALSITY EXPOSED’ with:
‘Thank you and bless you Mr President.’ That would have empowered every Sri Lankan who, like Mr Gotabaya Rajapaksa, did their duty even in times of chaos. Only a good Executive President would do that to confirm the ruling power.
The alleged protestors failed to develop a true/divine position through sacrifice of all they had. A position formed through sacrifice becomes Universal power which spreads Itself. All foreigners – especially foreign media – are trying to profit from this situation. Intellectuals like Ms Bawani Fonseka are feeding their desires.
The alleged Protestors have manifested the need of Sri Lankans, for Executive Presidency to regulate them top-down because the failed to be true Buddhists, Hindus, Christians or Muslims.
Any presidential candidate who promised to abolish the Executive Presidency is ineligible to act in that position until the next election.
