    There are so many poor people in SL but we have never heard of this person having done the same without a fee. Its all business. He has Spas, a hotel(not for free) , now the main income they are aiming is from foreigners i think.look how much they advertise. The real horiwila weda mahaththaya didnt do any advertizing. It a pity to see the Maharagama Center run by the son is without a fly on most days. He is found in Udahamulla near post office selling cloths and famous for fighting with people in the area.
