Controversial Monk Gnanasara Thera Undergoes Major Physical Transformation Following Surgery At J'pura Hospital

September 26, 2018

The controversial Buddhist monk Galagodaaththe Ganasara Thera has apparently undergone a major physical transformation after his surgery, last month. 

The latest photographs of the monk, which have been released to social media by his supporters, show that the monk has lost weight considerably over the past month. 

He was re-admitted to the Jayawardenapura Teaching Hospital today, following a routine clinic he attended last morning. 

The monk has been shuttled between the Prison Hospital and Jayawardenapura Teaching Hospital several times, after his surgery last month. 

Doctors said several stones had been removed from his kidney following a successful surgery. He is also suffering from high blood pressure which made his surgery complicated. 

Gnanasara Thera, the General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena organization, is currently serving a 6-year Rigorous Imprisonment for contempt of court. He has been convicted for threatening Sandhya Ekneligoda, the wife of missing journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda, within the Homagama Magistrate's Court premises.
