Eliyantha Lindsay White, supernatural healer, miracle doctor, a charlatan it’s up to you to decide. The latest rumor says that President Mahinda Rajapakse told a friend that the controversial healer was a dangerous man as he dabbled in the spirit world. According to Mr.Rajapakse Dr. Eliyantha’s brand of healing required a great deal of dabbling in the spirit world. This conversation of President believes to be had with a Colombo businessman and a close friend of late “Sunday Leader” editor Lasantha Wickrematunge. Eliyantha White once said that “When someone sits before me with an ailment I can study his reports and feel his system, but what is more important is that I can see a light, as small as a welder’s sparkle and I begin to hear and sense the medication for his ailment.” According to him all human ailments are due to the sins of past births. “It is also called Nila Sashthraya, He started his supernatural treatments at the age of 12, by treating his own elder brother who believed to be suffering from cancerous illness which was considered to be incurable by the Western Medicine. Some spiritual powers which he believes to be from the spirits of Rishis, who lived in India long time ago, placed on his palm some medication and a bolus (guli) of medication. Those spiritual powers also told how to use the same to cure his brother and subsequently his brother was cured by this medicine. Eliyantha child continued going to the Temple where he was contacted by the spiritual powers and started studying traditional medicine from a monk at the temple. He studied traditional medicine under this monk for almost nine years. Then he went to India and learned Kundalini Yoga, the ancient art of channeling corporeal energy resting coiled at the base of the spine to seek lost wisdom. Eliyantha Whites's medical practice is neither Western nor strictly Ayurvedic. He uses herbs, blended according to ancient recipes. His treatments are mostly spiritual. President Rajapaksa’s own misgivings about his personal supernatural healer comes at a time the medicine man is embroiled in a controversy over administering banned drugs to one of Sri Lanka’s world cup players and opening batsman Upul Tharanga. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that medical examinations have found Upul Tharanga to have taken banned substances. However the Sri Lanka Cricket had not yet been officially informed about it by the ICC. Meanwhile the Ministry of Sports in Sri Lanka confirmed that Sri Lankan cricketer Upul Tharanga had indeed failed a drug test during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, after he has been tested positive for prednisolone, allegedly administered to him by Eliyantha White.
|“Eliyantha White travelled with Sri Lanka’s World Cup team in February-April this year as he had permission to treat Sri Lanka’s sportsmen and women” The head of the National Sports Council and the National Council on Banned Substances, Dr. Geetanjana Mendis quoted this week to the local media. The permission process to treat the nation’s best athletes and sports persons in an official capacity and why there was no better monitoring process by the Ministry and the governing authority is alarming but not surprising.|
