If you are looking for that inner calm, an eternal bliss brought from the freedom of the physical from the emotional, then Sri Lanka is the ideal place to explore your mind through meditation. Meditation is a fundamental means to control one’s mind, freeing it of disruptive thoughts, a process that can only be achieved through rigourous practice. In the land where the teachings of the Lord Buddha are largely practiced and passed on, the methods and forms of meditation are freely shared at temples and meditation retreats. Special courses on meditation are conducted at retreats that focus on Vipassana meditation through week-long or 10 day courses.
