    I`m a buddhist and i dont understand this fascination with temples all over the country throwing money at building garish statues and see which one is bigger or shinier when there are people who cant afford food to eat. its important to appreciate and protect archealogical treasures but this is nothing to do with buddishm, buddhism teaches to let go off the material world, not worship it.

    This is a great work indeed. I understand that late Minister Jeyaraj gave a helping hand to the project.

    While I appreciate this contribution, I am not for building statutes of any kind including those of politicians. Buddha placed his doctrine, Dhamma, as the place of worship if such a thing/place is needed for worship.

    Should have used the 2m bucks to feed the IDP`s!

    When the war is over we think of build Temples and Statues.

    Army Commander should have given that money to disabled soldiers.

    How was he able to give 2 Million Rupees? How did he become so rich?

    What a waste of Money .

    [ Army Lieutenant General Sarath Fonseka on hearing of its construction donated a sum of Rs. 2 million for the project.]

    How much of this is ill gotten funds through kick backs and what portion is from looted jewelery of Jaffna?

    Rs 2 million isnt much these days. the rupee has devalued a lot.
