LOVE CONQUERS ALL
03 July 2022
is the birth anniversary of our aunt Mrs Padma Sanmugarajah. I believe that
when we remember loved ones as if they are currently with us, and appreciate
their goodness, we canonize their goodness. If we owe them and fail to settle
it even after death, we inherit the opposite of their good qualities, or worse their
bad qualities, if any. As per my discovery, when we pay our respects to our
ancestors, we inherit their positive aspects. They mutate as per our true need.
I was therefore unhappy to read the article ‘Shock reason Sri
Lankan-Australians won’t send money to struggling friends and family’ at https://www.news.com.au/world/asia/shock-reason-sri-lankanaustralians-wont-send-money-to-struggling-friends-and-family/news-story/ea6912fd118d884becb8bbe60f859ef0
As per the above:
Lankans living in Australia are refraining from sending desperately-needed
funds to struggling friends and family back home, fearing money will never end
up in the hands of those in need because the government will steal it.]
names in the report were Sinhalese, who in Sri Lanka hold majority power to
elect government. For example:
[Upul Chandana, 49, is the secretary of
the North Victoria Sri Lankan Welfare and Cultural Association.
He says the Sri Lankan community feels
Chandana is also secretary of the Samadhi Buddhist Association and volunteers
for the Craigieburn SES unit]
Tamils do not trust this government, that would be understandable, due to the war
against the LTTE, in which a large number of Tamil civilians were seriously
wounded and/or killed. In my circles,
only a handful of Sri Lankans of Sinhalese origin felt for the civilian victims
of the armed war. The rest inherited the karma of the government. Those who
were grateful to the soldiers who risked their lives to do their duty inherited
the commitment to duty through lawful process. Those who celebrated with the
government – are paying the price now of that victory celebration. I witnessed
some of those in Colombo, in 2009.
on its own is like unregulated/free pleasure. One such pleasure is the war
victory celebration by those who were not direct victims of the war. The
discipline in war is largely personal, due to absence of supervision. At personal
level those who use their own conscience to know right from wrong, and abstain
from acting ‘wrong’ earn positive karma. The reason for this is embedded in the
saying ‘all is fair in love and war . We use our conscience which is the basis
of our belief. Belief is soul power.
who celebrate war-victory against fellow Sri Lankans is unregulated to the extent
common resources were used to wound and kill
on personal basis – as if for personal pleasure. Laws and Rules help prevent such
personal pathways being taken.
government and especially this President have their share of unregulated pleasures
of war. But the reason why it affects the Sinhalese is their own failure to
discipline that government through their votes.

we sent money through the banking system. This was largely towards post-war development
work through structures developed by us. Those who are now hesitating to send
money through the banking system are confirming that they have failed to
contribute to the official system and that they have their own ‘unofficial’
foreign debts from India and China , to the extent they come from the common citizen’s
money – becomes a curse when it is not settled. Australian Government also donated money. If the current government
is trustworthy – all refugee applicants from Sri Lanka need to be sent back to
Sri Lanka. Otherwise, the current government
is paying towards prolonging the war – possibly to oppose China.
Monies need to be based on belief. Belief regulates us perfectly. Lack of
belief requires firm agreements for money transfers – be they between
individuals or governments.

a lesser level. If LTTE had taken over North & East – Tamils also would
have gone bankrupt.
