      Persons who are unable to live according to vows of Celibacy and Poverty have unfortunately become members of the Sangha.
      The Sangha should formulate Rules of Recruitment.
      The government should assist, as Buddhism is ‘fostered and protected’ by the constitution.

    I do not want to insult clergy whether Buddhist or Christian.
    it is not a secret that some very supposed to be ‘respectable’ monks having lady keeps and children. At the same timethere are catholic priest charged in courts worldwide for sexual harrasment against young children.

    I believe that a Buddhist Council shall be formed to discipline monks whether they are samaneras or Nyaka hamudurows.

    These are the individuals who ordains as Buddhist monks only to survive and not to promote the religion. By becoming a monk they get food and lodging free, so why not. Additionally, the people provide them with best of foods that they doesn’t eat every day. What does this do, it increase the testsrone capacity and they have to engage themselves in some activity. The authorities who are responsible for the betterment of the the Buddhism should remove these culprits, disrobe them and send them back to join the normal society to earn their living. This action has to practice all time when Buddhist monks are involved in any action which is contrary to the teaching of the Lord Buddha. If not in time to come Buddhism will vanish because these rouges in Yellow Robes.
