Thank you for posting that.
What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

Níl sa saol seo ach ceo
There is naught in this life but mist
Is ní bheimid beo ach seal beag gearr.
And we will not be alive but a short hard time.

This is what the corrupt and wicked system of dirty money and wrong living hood is doing all over the world.
It is a shame that someone kill a disciple of The Lord, a being that intent only to benefit others.
I'm horrified, this kind of information make rise the most disgust feelings in me.
Some beings can be very ignorant to do that kind of action.
May all have peace.
