The ‘donations of dhamma - the most generous and useful donations of all giving and sharing ( Ganu Denu)




Sabba daanam damma daanam jinathi

This is the avurudu season ‘give and take’ or ‘ganu denu’ has taken a big space of the nekath seettuwa not only now even back then since the day that celebration of the ‘aluth avurudu’ became top of national celebrations.

Although the old society people were divisioned according to caste system and class ( automatically)  there were no restrictions to celebrate this comes once a year celebration ‘ the aluth avurudda’ which brings happiness to kids to adults in almost all the united units, groups, companies, institutions plus all named and unnamed or unspecified organizations communities.

And there is something specific about this celebration though sometimes we people think that we both are deviated and isolated from each other even after achieving peace permanently that is really a very pre mature ideas what we need to understand this in a little mature way even nationally there is no space for such narrow minded thinking. Each year this celebration will remind all of us that ‘there are things that you still share nationally and societically this event is not only allocated for Tamils  only or to Sinhalese only it is named as ‘ Sinhalese & Hindu new year’. This no ‘drams script’ like some like to explain or give some my explanations and behaviours on footpath and other any spaces the way I deal with things (not really life dealings I deal nothing when it comes to my life related things but all these other work I do is a part of my life not my total life or full life package there are other things as well in my total life package)  

Give and take ‘ganu denu’ I thought why people always expect somethingback after hearing what my little brother ( he was kidding ) said after giving some hundreds  to me and his amma , nangi ( generally he does not give any to his big brother he thinks that he earns enough J

Mama 1500 k dunnoth amma mata 2000 denna owne ethakota mata 500 labhai’
If I give 1500 to my mother she should give me 2000 in return then the profit will like 500 rupees

like vise he said it is a kind of a ‘profit earning moments

I took the money he gave and gave nothing in return J

 He started teasing me saying ‘nona mata wanchawak keruwa mata muth dunne neha’ ‘lady you cheated me you gave nothing to me

Some give but do not expect things or nothing in return there are ways of giving and taking. Some things are not materialistic or assessable movable or immovable therefore such things do not categorized as ‘real giving among some people.

So we ganu ( take) and denu ( give) many types of things during this new year season  money’ still plays a big role in this ‘give and take on a auspicious time fixed and decided by the worldly known astrologers or numerologists and gifts, and kewili pewili  ( eatables( mostly and drinkables) too people love to exchange.

Let me come to my title of the day there are gifts unforgettable some losable, some mispalceable, stealable,   some gifts people just forget or do not stay forever in their minds but there are things inerasable or deleted from peoples mind because such gifts generally stays even in people’s unconscious mind and automatically comes to the surface of their life and even without knowing they practices such things in their lives. 

the donations of dhamma is such kind of a gift, giving , donation that are immeasurable and in any teachings of dhamma that you are ready to share will bring no harm but always bring some good results in living‘ or in your any typed dealings (dhamma is not just a narrowed word it comes in many shapes and sizes and this has various facets) dhamma I am not an expert to describe this in a very proper way, I even do not have the adequate English terms to explain what I really mean I share things with you the way I can or understand
most of you I know ‘have the words to do the job properly’ brilliantly, therefore you do not write rubbish but I may write rubbish coz of the ‘ inadequacies of my vocabulary ‘ pardon me I am a neonate in the language of ‘ English’ I am just learning by imitating the big ones who know the subject very well, I just follow their ways, I just take one or two words when ever possible and try to keep them devising them in my inner brain lanes   and I try fill the gaps putting the right word sometimes I fail and sometimes I become alright ( little ) in explanations. Natural for a beginner or for an amateur.



 when you hold good thoughts about somebody or someone , person, individual, people, near ones such things work as ‘ rays of non harmful thoughts that come and touch your deep mind ‘ in many ways reason is when you releases your good thoughts to the outer world you live that goes and touches the person that you aims ‘ good things not the bad things’ think good or think positive things I am sure has a huge power’ and it has the ‘man changing power’ ( Man = human)

sharing or donating dhamma is not just sil or upasaka upasika’s tasks such things different and you do not have to wear a robe to follow such things or share such good teachings among or with your associates or workers, friends you even do not have to aim to reach nibbana just by doing it nibbana one can not reach easily that is a far away thing from me I do not know about other people. We need at least a bit of dhamma to live a good life a peaceful life.
 I have heard some people say many things about the harvests /‘fruits they get of some cultivation lets take it as an example (harvest/fruit is equal to result of effort cultivation for instance)  

Power of voices, good words (that always bring good thoughts, peace of mind, some good no harm to people’s mind ) one has to follow his/her instincts to live or share good things, teachings, every knowledge that will bring some positive side, some good results to the people of this world I like to remind you that ‘ every single person of this world do not get the chance to learn academically , professionally , or universally entering in to formal or informal established, or not recognized institutions do not try to apply this to the society that we live ours is a tiny part of this world map of people how many societies units that we can think of how many are there that we have not even recognized and yet to be identified. So you are one of the privileged person that is how you should start thinking no matter what level of formal education you may have achieved always try to think that there are many other below your level of education as well so there are plenty of things that you can do using your knowledge for the sake of ‘the world’.

There are formal ways of sharing knowledge of dhamma or other knowledge there are informal ways, there are acceptable ways and inacceptable ways what ever way there are no restrictions in sharing only when you do not earn any cent out of such things because when you have things to do with money importance of such things become less value’ one should not always thinking of selling such knowledge dhamma we have gained free of charge , the knowledge of dhamma we have gained effortlessly because we are not the ones who put their total effort to understand explain well teach well to the world who were desired or longed to know or absorb bit of dhamma and apply such to not at all to their own lives but to the lives of the world think of the religious leaders you know and analyze their lives.

Sharing dhamma ‘ is not official task of a general person who does not wear any robe or follow any religious routings aiming at achieving nibbana or thinking of shortening travel time of the journey unlimited.

Monks or priests they have a huge responsibility to lead the society towards ‘ a better place’ they truly have to be role models though it is little difficult ‘ sharing dhamma is a huge part of their lives, there are formal establishments, institutions to teach and share ‘dhamma’

I am not specifically trying to focus on ‘ Bududahama’ ( Buddhism) but on all sort of religious teachings   

I thought this is the right time to talk about ‘how to use language for the sake of sharing the thoughts of Damma(Religious teaching) for the sake of the existing world, living beings, for the better improvement of the world, for the sake of the believers of a ‘non violence world’.

The Theros of my country are not the only group that are aware of this valuable immeasurable teachings of Lord Budhha, ‘Buddhism’ how they all have leant this ‘language of understanding life and living’ – Buddhism I believe it is mainly because of this language ‘ English’. And of course there are other languages like Pali and Sanskrit. But when it comes to using the languages such as ‘Pali and sanskrit’ there are limitations reason I believe apart from the ‘ Buddhists monks there are very few who are interested in learning such languages knowing the things that they can learn via the old prints ( books )or may be having other aims ( educational or other wise ) in their minds some named or called such languages ‘ as dead languages’ on the other hand some are not really interested in learning such languages I am not sure about the reason may be because ‘it is not easy to learn’ when it comes to using or learning a language that is not in practice all the time or when people do not hear it all the time the chances of learning such languages is limited or very minimum lets say when you do not hear people use such language as their spoken languages you only have the chances to learn them by reading , or studying yourself or getting help from your teachers.

English is different. When you think of the number of people who use English Language for any educational or other purposes business or otherwise ‘English come on top of the languages that are people interested in learning or teaching , studying or the choice of learning English is million times larger. Sometimes people have no choice because English has become the most used language among the international languages that are generally people uses of prefers to use.

I believe no one doubts about the validity or the universality of the teachings of Our Lord Buddha and many are interested in learning this language of life ‘Buddhism people who live along all the territorial channels or canals, borders

About a year ago I started this path with THE INSPIRING SUPPORT OF the KNOWLEDGEABLE. I had a little doubt when I first started this and I had a little bit of ‘shaky mind’ reason was I was a little worried because whether the people would accept this or not or will they laugh at me? many thoughts were entangled in my mind always but somehow I started this havinging very, very limited technical knowledge and I knew nothing about ‘blog creations’ J
Luckily it worked somewhat well.

I do not think that I use this path totally to share ‘dhamma’ because the things I know are very little I know only a few or an ounce of the world full of knowledge but I like to write them down in different forms or ways when I re read what I write after few days or months I feel that there is a lot lacking in my essays. I know.
 
    

Footpath is my personal tuition class though I am not surrounded with many number of students like in ‘ape Sinhala pathiya’ (Our Sinhalese class) of one of the most romantic script writers of this era ‘Upul Shantha Sannasgala’ – Upul sir I like to share bit from this and another bit from that but every single essay I admit is an incomplete efforts due to various reasons.

So this my effort I like to name as another incomplete essay for all of you to read

I am not going to focus on all the benefits of using proper language or the right uses of language today I like to focus more on ENGLISH language.

Following is another side that one can think of using language for various purposes ways of communication are generally very different from each and every way of using or styles methods, strategies.

Oral and written  

Both ways of communication and sharing knowledge or sharing people’s inner lanes with others are immeasurably important.   

English for religious groups, Monks, teachers, formal and informal teachers’ institutions (formal institutions) such as in PIRIWEN essential because that helps to share the knowledge of dahama with the world who likes to learn and embrace such knowledge 

 Tools generally play the roles of the helpers one can also name or introduce them as the assistants, guiders. For words, we need letters. No letter can bring a meaningful sentence 'alone' for a meaningful explanation we need at least two letters that is to create a meaningful word or a sentences except the big letter 'I'. This big letter I can survive or stand alone but to give it a little frills and shapes and sizes the supporting letters can give a big boost.

Single words alone can stand firm no doubt. I, run, play, act, good, care, love, like, ugly, handsome, share, dhamma etc.but when you think of using them adding all the necessary gramaticals and coloured them with meaningful articles before all I 's and She's He's they's All's Ah! Then everyone feels like embracing then the meaning of the total idea become so close to the person who hear or read them or learn them. 

Language is a big tool a very powerful one, it is a  weapon that even a poor owns and they can become rich using the language that they know only when they decided to use them a right way, meaningful way, intelligent way.

Anyone who is rich in words is a richer not a poor the way they use their language so humble, so genuine, so gentle, so beautiful so appropriate, so useful, so intelligentful , meaningful everything become fill and full for the people who knows the correct tack ticks of using language for better of course. some big have earned this 'fullness' or the meaningfulness by using the language they know correctly, accurately, intelligently, and of course so brilliantly appropriately. 

For some language is like their profession, carrier for some language bring the world before them. some can reach high  of all high levels because of their levels of language brilliancies. NO easy to learn. use or deliver good language all depends on ones levels of proficiency or professionalisms.   

FM channeling i like doing once in  away but i do not know why i have become no partner of FM channels these days ' members, listeners  viewers, readers are the true partners of something, institution, a component that has many things to do with voice and pictures + knowledge and skills and  LANGUAGE. it is not just a scissor or a hammer or a sword this brilliant communication tools have to play a many number of roles before people, their listeners, viewers etc. but I listen to them on bus or when going passing the lotteries outlets or at friends places but i know who works where what role they play because i was not a sleep walker though i am alone talker :) to a invisible brains and minds ( they truly have the brains i like to think they may differ from each other the way they use their brains and minds that is the only difference that i see and understand)

so aney please take care of your language buddies little girls and boys when you become a granny one day there has to be something that you can share with your grand children. Earn something from using right words right ways and save something for your own grand children.

One thing young sweet voice owners can do is to meet strong voices, historical (SLBC or other places) and share knowledge and be brave to ask any questions. Do not hammer or scissor anyone unless you really have to. What is important is for a listener or a reader 'what you give to your readers, LISTENERS, viewers, etc. give something fruitful, useful meaningful to them. Associate good peer groups colleagues, read the profiles of tall personalities who contributed not only their time but also their life. 

one thing you need to remember 'you are not just representing 'YOU' you are representing your organization, your institution, your intuition, your attitudes, your beliefs  your ethics, your ideologies and finally you are representing your guru 's and your language am i right or wrong? Do not give any black marks to self think how not to sustain but how to sustain in the areas 'one can easily earn a name one can easily be popular. Even one engage in killing or murdering, stealing they too can be popular but think of writing your good name in the hearts and minds of the ones who channel you via their choice of frequencies. I may be wrong the things that I tell or the way I express these my ideas invalid or no use but at least one can think of 'better to meet an expert to get a better idea' learn and share with a an expert.

i do not believe in  hammering people, insulting people but educating them the way we can, make aware of people on this and that of current issues or needs of a society.

YOUTH is a very powerful asset we have or a better tool that can be used on right purposes. So you represent youth 'good voices holders' therefore people prefer to channel you via the channeling agents they know, via the frequencies. take sand fm for instance they still have many things to earn 'language' skills, knowledge meeting good knowledgeable personalities who knows the subject, reading good books on how to channel people via fm's, how to live with people, for people what to give them what not to give or what not to touch, what to share what to talk discuss, what topics should reach PLUS of course good MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC AND MUSIC more of them. 

good fm's avoid what i say if the things i  discuss here in this path not applicable to you. i respect each and every word that you aired for the sake of people lets fill the air space with loads and loads of positive and non harmful but very educational, useful things. 

Good discussions on all topics i guess is a good thing to think. This my sand fm
J that I know some sometimes listen they have plenty of fields yet to be discovered and polished.

so dear girls and boys ( of course you are young and energetic but do not forget the life realities when ever possible talk to your own mirror images when ever possible ) use all you existing strength and knowledge and skills , brilliance's not to hammer or scissor people but to educate them in every way talk to them every good way.

Please accept my respect and wishes all the good , voice and knowledge owners.

Have a listening -full meaningful watchful day!   

  English or what ever language you use, me use, they use, all use ‘ share good stuffs only’ stick to that law I know that we organize for a better purpose aiming to achive targets of our professions naming them any many or different ways. FUTA or weli, gal saha gadol ekathu karannange samithiya ( the society attached with weli park the collators or sand, bricks etc this is next to open university premises ( Nawala) or a funeral assistant society what ever society or a committee ‘words and aims( objectives) they have to deliver using the language they know what I am trying to say here is that ‘ to achieve what ever ( important or less important or massively important language plays an important role)’

Communication closes people and makes them apart or depart from each other reason is unexplainable some things happen due to lack of communication, or the immature ways of communications I do not think of channeling the ones that do not respect me at all why should I ? I do not like to channel the ones that hurt me purposely

Young ones ‘ core’ or the spine of our society ‘ follow the educated, follow the ones who respect people work as an inspiring agents, teaches you something always directly or indirectly.

Young can be a teacher to any adult. Fill my brain lanes with something good not with insulting words or inhuman ways of explaining things ‘people’s minds generally get hurts easily ‘ it is breakable , it is irreparable it is irrecoverable so handle with care your target group should be ‘all’ not just singles or doubles or fourbles ring something good morning to night of your sharing through your ‘own frequencies’ children, friends, buddies, adults, experts , tall personalities I am ready to listen read

Have a good day
