How religious beliefs change over time

Thought of sharing an interesting article which shows how Buddhism changed in the past and how it’s changing now.

Read the article here – http://www.groundviews.org/2009/11/25/the-transformation-of-buddhism-in-sri-lanka/

The above article shows how Buddhism in Sri Lanka got influenced from other religions. This transformation is happening to every religion, to every culture with ‘Globalization’.

The Problem in Sri Lanka is people adopt all the silly things from other Religions & cultures. There are well organized groups who change our culture and after some time those changes become permanently absorbed to culture & religion. The worst part is our Sri Lankans are so blindly religious and they start to believe and/or worship to all the silly things at the end.

    Thanks for the link crd.

    Although Buddhism in its current form (and present culture) is far from what was probably preached, the path to the end the cycle still exists for anyone with intelligence and determination. The commercialisation and modern day adaptations has no impact on it !
    Looking forward for more posts.

    Kolitha’s comments truly are infantile as is this “article” off ground views.
    This really isn’t news to me! All of the points put forward by the esteemed author at ground views have been put forward at some point or another by people like Kumari Jayawardena and Gananath Obeyesekere.
    Yawn.
    Enough said.

    Christian Fundamentalism in Sri Lanka is growing, and the God Cult is eating away at Sri Lanka day by day. Don’t believe me? See the following site which explores evangelical Christianity in Sri Lanka:

      Aruna, the site doesn’t seem to exist anymore. Geocities pulled down their sites a while back.

      Thanks for the video link!

      Broadcast on Sri Lankan TV and radio? That is great news, may I ask who or which organisation is behind the effort?

  6. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you
    know any methods to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.
