Meditation Programmes

Ti Ratana Community Centre in Sri Lanka, conducts guided meditation classes, mainly for layman, who interested in practicing Buddhist meditation in a peaceful environment.

Why Meditation

Because it helps to manage stress, which has become a serious health concern in modern society, due to its hectic pace, and our inability to cope with it. Stressful life makes us unhappy, tired, impatient, and lead us to face more and more complex problems, that can be mental, physical and emotional depressed.

Meditation makes us relaxed and our minds calmer and more focused. Even a simple breathing meditation can help us to overcome stress, as it helps to understand our own mind and transform our negative attitudes to positive, disturbed mind to be peaceful, and un-happiness to be happy. Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts are the purpose of Buddhist meditations. This is a profound spiritual practice one can enjoy throughout the day, not just while seated during meditation.
