Anagarika Dharmapala Thuma

ලෝකය විවිධාකාර මිනිසුන්ගෙන් ගහණ ය. එහෙත් වීරෝදාර ශ්‍රේෂ්ඨයන්ගේ ප‍්‍රමාණය අල්පය. සැබවින්ම ඔවුන්ගේ සුලභකමක් වේ නම් විශේෂත්වයක් ද නැත. වර්තමාන ජාතික, ආගමික, සාමාජික, සංස්කෘතික, අධ්‍යාපනික ආදී විවිධ ක්ෂේත‍්‍රයන්හි ප‍්‍රබෝධයේ පුරෝගාමී වූයේ ශ්‍රී මත් අනගාරික ධර්මපාලතුමා ය. එතුමා සිය වස්තුවද, ජීවිතය ද ඒ සියල්ල වෙනුවෙන් කැප කරන්නට අධිෂ්ඨාන කර ගත්හ.

Are Buddhists really idol worshippers? – Ven. Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda Thero

Many people are under a misapprehension that Buddhists pray to idols. This is due to a lack of knowledge of the teaching of the Buddha and Buddhist customs and traditions.

Buddhists do not normally pray to images and idols; what they do is to pay homage to a great religious teacher who is worthy of honour. The images are erected as a mark of respect and appreciation for the highest achievement of enlightenment and perfection by an extraordinary religious teacher. To a Buddhist the image is merely a token, a symbol, a representation which helps him to recall or to remember the Buddha.

Buddhists kneel before the image and pay their respects to what that image represents.
