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.
