( November 30, 2014, Sydney, Sri Lanka Guardian) Mahinda Rajapakse who is having his personal astrologer and most of the time he is around temple Trees, to check for best times and days to engage in any activity, as Mahinda do everything according to Astrological dates and times. But the President who always use Astrological dates and times for everything he do, change his mind this time when he selected the dates for the Presidential elections, according to a very reliable source from the Presidential House.
The Astrological dates for Nomination and Election were different to the dates Election Commissioner announced this time. Why Mahinda now not following the Astrological dates and go for Numerical dates? Chinese has so much influence on Mahinda he is now forced to discard his Astrologer for Chinese auspicious dates as dictate by them.
The day Presidential elections was proclaimed, I never thought about the importance of the two dates in December and January. But after reading a Chinese article on Numerology, I suddenly realise Mahinda Rajapakse is well and truly is under the Chinese power. Number 8 (Eight) is the most important number for Chinese in their Calendar and their influence helped Mahinda Rajapakse to throw away the Astrological dates given to him and choose 8th in December and 8th in January as the nomination and election dates, as he was told by the Chinese that he will be able to defeat anyone contesting him if he used those dates.
Unfortunately late PM SWRD Bandaranayke was born on 8th January, and now this day he selected is creating problems for him and his advisers.
Why Rajapakse discarded the Astrological dates is a mystery to many, and the person who provided me this information told me he got very agitated when he heard January 8th is the Birth Day of SWRD Bandaranayke. Even he select any date this time he is going to lose very badly as he is hated by most in Sri Lanka. But now his trust on Chinese numerology has eroded and he is fuming about using the Chinese numerological dates for this crucial Presidential election.
