flying monks
When these monks wanted to fly to Eelam, SCN came to the rescue and provided a Dandu Monara.
Anyone with even a vague knowledge of early SriLankan history and particular the Ramayana would know that we invented the flying machine (Dandu Monara) long before Wilbur and Orville.
So it does seem natural that these monks should fly...although one has a vague feeling that such luxury goes against the teaching of Gautama Buddha...perhaps they should have walked?
The aircraft is ex-Aeroflot so perhaps that's really not luxury.
Note: On the subject of flying clergy here is a Flying Monk in one of the Tintin books (Tintin in Tibet) who flies without the aid of a machine. So could Superman tm. Jesus Christ could fly too but only after he died. He mostly ascended in helicopter fashion. Anyone can fly after they are dead.
A special delegation led by Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Refugees Minister Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena and Diyawadane Nilame Neranjan Wijeyaratne and comprising a large number of Bhikkus and members of several Buddhist organisation left for Jaffna by plane yesterday morning to participate in the pinnacle placing ceremony of the Naga Viharaya in Jaffna. Here they are seen at the Ratmalana Airport prior to their depasture. Picture by Ruwan de Silva / Daily News 25th May 2002

How many Poles does it take to change a light bulb?
Answer: One to hold the bulb and four to turn him around!
We presume that most SCN readers would know this rather ancient joke.
How many monks does it take to lay a pinnacle?
