The message said Ven. Sobitha Thera was a moral advisor who attracted the hearts and minds of devotees by preaching the Dhamma in a simple but firm voice. He communicated his ideas to the public at large impartially without taking sides. No one was able to obstruct his path as he continued his endeavour as a Buddha monk for the benefit and welfare of the public. It is no exaggeration to say that the Ven. Sobitha Thera was the modern image of heroic leaders of the past who took the forefront to defend the country in times of crisis in the history.

He dedicated his life selflessly to create a just society in the country. Although he is no more, his name will remain in people's memory for ever.

May the Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha there attain the supreme bless of Nibbana.
