‘violently humping a 14 yrs old’ A Part Of A Buddhist Monks Preaching

In buddhism, magerata on April 4, 2010 at 12:11 am

Humping Part of the article by Bhikku K. Tanchangya

If this is the way to promote and protect Buddhism, Bhikkhu K. Tanchangya, I would rather be an aethiest. But luckily for me, there are good priests, who guides me, (and do not demand to be agents of nirvana), practicing Buddhism. They may not write much in forums, but I am sure they would have handled the same issue much better, and convey the message much better.

I did ask one of them the question, “How to protect and promote Buddhism?”.  I got a simple but very good answer;

“Practice Buddhism even harder, the Bodhisattva in you will awaken and cause people next to you notice the tranformation in you. They will naturally be inquisitive. Then you have to introduce your practice to them if they do not know about it. If they already know, tell them how you practice it but don’t ask them to follow you. Help them to find their own ways.”

Boy I was relieved, Buddhism will prevail because there are Bhikkhus who knows Dhamma.

I do not like Akons music nor his acts, but I dislike ( more like detest) this monk even more. It seems that Akon will perform in Maldives! after all and the crowd who could afford Rs.25000 tickets will see it in anyway and this monk only manged to degrade Buddhism. As I mentioned in the article about Akon in Maldives, should have been done in a much better way.

You can join a conversation at Groundviews and find a link to the article by The Bhikkhu K. Tanchangya here.

  2. too bad you are promoting terrorist parroting racist groundviews here. ppl who oppose it cannot join in the conversation even if they wanted to bc sanjana censors them.

    only spineless critics who suck up to sanjana are admitted . are you one of those now ? i thought you had a backbone . oh well.

    here are few examples of comments censored there.

    you can find more ( in other blogs too) by doing a google search

    btw did you notice them promoting a false story based on a fabricated qoute attributed to prez within last 24 hours . now that it has been proved fabricated they are trying hard to reverse their own words.

    lol
    are you going to defend sanjana there now? are you going to ask him questions about it? or are you all too ready to suck him and say nothing ?


    btw i am no buddhist but are you objecting to the use of words? why exactly?

    phrase obliviously borrowed from several videos on youtube where akon in fact does just that. akon known for this so much and there are so many videos of him doing this that there are even spoof videos .

    • Hi Sn, Thanks for the long comment. I stand for what I believe in. If I find Sanjana doing something wrong, I will comment or publish a post. I want to fight in a different way than you do. But you are welcome to follow your own choosing. If we do not stand first for ourselves, we will not be able to stand for others. I have seen you bringing up many issues and most of them I agreed and left comment when ever deemed necessary. Some I found not to my liking but I let them be out of respect you as a person.
      I think we all want Sri Lanka to be a better place. But I see some are working for their own gains first and that can’t last for ever and the truth will come out.
      There are different ways of fighting or opposing. Even though it may sound cliche, I like the art of war by Sun Tzu, There are many ideas and stratergies that we could apply to our daily lives.
      The chapter nine concentrates on “The Army on the March/Moving The Force describes the different situations in which you find yourselves as you move into new enemy territories and how to respond to them. Much of it focuses on evaluating the intentions of others.”
      You are right in thinking that I have a backbone, I do. But if it is not to your liking, I can’t help it.
      Akon I disliked the bugger a few years ago, perhaps even before you ever heard of him. He is/was a moron and the incident that threw me off was when he threw a kid off the stage, one of his fans, just because he was white kid. If you search YouTube you might find the video.
      Why did I write this post?, because I expect more from a leaned Buddhist monk. They should not ignite fires, they should douse fires. We laymen can do the burning. It is not the deed I do not like, it is the way he handled it. If one feels strong about protecting Buddhism, great, I do too. I do that by introducing the Buddhism to people who have never thought about it. I also try very hard to practice what I preach. Before going after morons like Akon, This Bhikkhu could start in Sri Lanka by going after his fellow monks that set to destroy the Buddhism.

      I do not remember defending or promoting Sanjana here. But like I criticize him (which I have done many a times) I will acknowledge or praise if he does something that demands such. Just Like I do with you.
      Just one more thing is that any one I disagree with, politically or ideologically does not mean I hate them. I will not hesitate to sit across from a table over a cup of coffee and continue the argument or the disagreement. Even with Indi. 🙂
      Kidding aside, even the Bhikkhu in this story, I will gladly sit down near him and listen to his reasons or arguments and present my idea in better manner. I just do not like the way he handled the issue. I have no problem with people depending or protecting the Buddhism they see fit. I just do not agree with harming another to do it.
      It goes the same for Tamil people and the terrorists. I am glad that the terrorists were eliminated, and I will salute President for that, no matter what thousand Sanjanas or thousand Sittingnuts say, bad and good, about our President. To me, he is the one who ended 30 years of suffering by Sri Lankans. My dislike to terrorists does not extend to other Tamil people. I was very sad to see those people in camps.
      Just today I read an article on Groundviews about Tsunami baby. The fact, that the author, and the actors were Tamil people did not even matter at all. Most important factor for me was the mothers love, that is what I read in that post.
      Hey man take it easy, smile a bit and bring out your ideas what ever the way you want. But do not dictate what I should not or should, because I will not heed. But you can certainly suggest or ask and you might find me reacting differently.

  3. [i also left this comment on the post you esp created for your comment.]

    very confused are you ?

    did i dictate to you ? did i say what you should do. where ?
    i did not .

    so main point your post/comment is not valid.


    btw it is always good to link/qoute/screen shot what you are refuting, if it is in different place. (as my comment is to this post.) btw are such suggestions what you call dictating ? lol

    what i did in my comment was to point out that groundviews censors legitimate comments and criticism . with examples .
    here are some
    http://llibertarian.blogspot.com/2007/02/citizen-journalism-or-trampling-on.html

    as such when you call on your readers to “join a conversation at Groundviews ” with link, that is impossible. (that is also a promotion.)

    spineless suck ups never face that problem.

    are you one? – was the question i raised. i don’t determine that. you actions do.


    i also refereed to what they were doing last 24 hours

    http://llibertarian.blogspot.com/2010/04/jvps-lankatruth-sanjana-hattotuwas.html

    and asked you, “are you going to defend sanjana there now? are you going to ask him questions about it? or are you all too ready to suck him and say nothing ? ”

    btw did you do any of that ?

    anyway is such questions what you call ‘dictating’? lol

    you are of course free to have tea/coffee/whatever with ppl like sanjana and indi padashow samarajiva, but they did not attack
    you with falsehoods ( not on my politics etc but on a irrelevant personal level through second hand blogs, like lefroy and padashow. there were whole posts devoted to attacking in a similar way in sanajana’s now deleted moju blog ) .

    here are latest examples
    http://llibertarian.blogspot.com/2010/04/jvps-lankatruth-sanjana-hattotuwas.html

    i am sorry i don’t and can’t smile at that sort of thing.
    can you?

    – –
    in addition to all that i asked you what you were objecting to about some monks statment?
    you have replied more or less. that is that.

    as i said i am no buddhist as such don’t care how monks should behave or use language .
    i don’t have any objections to anyone describing what akon seem to be well known for doing ( as i pointed out youtube has lots of examples ) at concerts in clear terms.


    did i say you don’t differentiate between tamils and terrorists? never.
    in fact whenever i see ppl equating tamils with ltte explicitly or implicitly i always point that out and criticize them in no uncertain terms.

    you never did that so i never criticized you on that count. so what the refutation.

    (btw this racist equalization is very common in groundviews but did you ever counter it there? why not ? )


    you make several other references to other issues never mentioned in my comment . where you confused ?

    if you have any objections to my words pl refute them where and when i make them. and qoute, link, etc if you do it in another place .

    of course that is a suggestion . would you take that as ‘dictating’ too? lol

    you are free to range wide far refuting things i never said if you want. feel free if you want .
    lol

  4. the third link in my main comment above ( which is awaiting moderation at this time ) should be
    http://llibertarian.blogspot.com/2010/03/attack-blogs-naked-pics-fake-comments.html

  5. People are free to write what they wish. If you have a problem with the phrase “violently humping a 14 year old girl) – which was exactly what Akon was doing then you need to go and practice your Buddhism better. Who are you to tell others how they should or shouldn’t right?

    • Hi Ajay, if your argument is right, then I am free to write what I wish too. I wish you had read the article instead of the title. And your logic of me practicing Buddhism, if I problem with the phrase, wow. I was practicing Buddhism before the phrase of this priest and will continue to practice long after.
      Also could you tell me what will happen if this priest says the same phrase, in Sinhalese, in a temple full of people, as a part of a speech?
      Thanks for the visit.

  6. dear magerata,

    i hv read all d relevant articles..n comments>!!! but by taking out a partial sentence out of a larger article n coming out with a whole lot of personal attack on this particular monk, u cannot certainly claim a superiority of spirituality…!!! i dont know u, so i wont comment on your personal spirituality based on hw u tried to attack this monk’s choice of phrase nor do i know about the monk’s spirituality and qualifications. but out of curiosity i did give a google search on this monk’s name n found few of his articles which reflect his deep understanding of the dhamma. trying to bring up a whole lot of faults with the monk’s spirituality just becox he included a phrase which he obviously must have borrowed from the internet (not his own creation n he may not have intended d meaning of how u jeopardized and manipulated its meaning in ur mentality), do u think u r being fair to this monk???!!! and do u think u r even better off???!!!(n for everyone’s sake, pls educate urself on the difference between a monk and a priest!!!)

    hv a good day…!!!!!

    • Hi Sujohn,
      I might have been too harsh but my statement stands. I expect more from a monk than a lay person like me. I also checked on the Monks articles like you did and found a few nice articles. I have no personal knowledge of this Monk. As you mentioned, he could be a very good person.
      I am not certainly in attack mode, sorry if I appeared so. I would like Monks like these who actually has contact with west to convey a better message. I do not like Akons music either and I do not care how he acts or conduct his life, to me he is another human being who decided to live his life in a certain way. If we are to clean up misuse of Buddha statues all over the world it will take eons. But it is certainly needed to educate people about the significance and the reverence Buddhists have for Lord Buddha’s statues or likeness.
      In Magerata, or En Nadu (means My country if you are not a Sri Lankan) there is a saying that goes, ” you can milk a cow to fill a whole pot of nice refreshing milk but it only takes tiny bit of goma (cow dung) mistakenly allowed to fall in and destroy that pot of milk and lose all the hard work went in to it.”
      So even if this Monk has done whole lot of good, as far as I am concerned, I am done with him, I will visit the next temple. As far as Buddhism is concerned, I am a ego full lay person, still learning my way to become a good Bodhisattva. I am very sorry if I cause any angst for you with my writing. I hope the Monk will edit his article and correct the context.
      Thank you for your valuable comment, I will think twice before I write something like this again.
