 Why did Chinese professor and 2 others enter monkhood in front of Aukana statue?


Why did Chinese professor and 2 others enter monkhood in front of Aukana statue?

A Chinese professor and 2 others had temporarily attained monkhood in front of Aukana statue last 26th. Buddha Sasana Minister, Gamini Jayawickrema joined this occasion.

It was Professor of Aesthetics in a Chinese university, businessman Wan Li Goh living in Talien of China and a railway employee by the name of
Wan Hui who became monks. The three of them attained monkhood in front of Aukana statue on a temporary basis with the mediation of Chief Incumbent of Aukana Raja Maha Vihara, Dhammakiththi Nahimi under the names Thalium Padumakiththi, Thalium Pagnakiththi and Thalium Sumanakirthi. The atapirikara was offered to these Chinese monks by Minister Gamini Jayawickrema. 

What Dhammakiththi Nahimi said was that many Chinese nationals used to visit this sacred location of Aukana and engage in religious rites and that this group of persons who were living in China had shown a great attachment towards Buddhism and had made the request of entering priesthood and to remain in meditative behaviour for the purpose of engaging in studies on Buddhism.
