The Conduct of Dambulla Buddhist Monks

 The Buddhist monks of Dambulla embarrassed the Buddhists world over by the way they conducted themselves on 20.4.2012. Buddhist doctrine teaches infinite tolerance.Buddha practised it himself (msha karuna)He resided in Jeatawanarama at Wranasi most of the time.Behind the monastery was Chuundaka who ran a slaughter house butchering pigs.The fact that groaning and shouts of pigs being slaughtered was well heard by occupants of the monastery is mentioned in so many scriptures.In front of the Jetawanarama monastery was the building occupied by Nighanthanatha Puthra,whose disciples activated many conspiracies against Buddha.Buddha tolerated these.
