|The term “Ashram” (sometimes spelled “Ashrama”) derives from the Sanskrit phrase “samaya,” which means “making an effort toward liberation.” In all of its manifestations, emancipation (liberation from thoughts) is strong and peaceful. We all want to achieve it in some way, and we each approach it in our own ways. Ashram Sri Lanka is a retreat destination with a meditative environment reminiscent of Ashrams from two to three thousand years ago. We are providing the concept of realizing your own self and you can find perfect silence and tranquility here.
What Ashram Sri Lanka Offers
At Ashram Sri Lanka, our tranquil retreat is more in line with the ashrams of the past. We offer simplicity, clean and peaceful space. Our ashram is nestled in a beautiful environment, surrounded by nature in all its magnificence, with fields of greenery and flowers that envelop the senses. We share in nature’s space. We nurture our environment and show it compassion. We believe that our oneness with ourselves and our shared environment ultimately connects to the larger universe and beyond.
Ashram Sri Lanka aims to offer its guests a space that is both an escape from the pace of today’s world and a retreat that brings back the basics. It is a simple and pristine place that provides an environment to allow one to leave their first-world problems behind and delve into their inner journey toward liberation. We strive to continue to nurture an environment that allows you to find and explore who you really are. You are your own teacher, and you are seeking your personal truth. We provide you with a space that can help you find your way back to your inner peace and consciousness (realization of one’s own self).
We are driven by the desire to assist others in assisting themselves. If you want to be free of emotional and physical responsibilities, self-imposed limits, and the stresses of life in a complicated society, we hope to bring you closer to finding inner quiet and stillness in the chaos that can be our world.
A retreat with us will provide you with the time and space you need for introspection, reflection, contemplation, yoga, and meditation. The ultimate aim of meditation is to seek freedom from the wheel of ‘sansara,” the cycle of birth and death. Even though it is a difficult task, it can be obtained through effort and dedication. And if one aspires to achieve spiritual growth and its benefits through serious meditation, Ashram Sir Lanka is the place for you.
We seek to provide you with a clean slate to chart your life going forward, and in helping you while sharing our collective journey.
Our Request of you at Ashram Sri Lanka
At Ashram Sri Lanka, we value all forms of life and beings. We see everything as valuable and deserving of life, and we want all of our guests to act with humility and respect. At Ashram Sri Lanka, we respectfully urge that all of our guests behave appropriately. Seeking what we call “sense stimulation” or “sense pleasures” will only provide brief delight and contentment. It is also known to establish a loop in which we become slaves to our senses. At Ashram Sri Lanka, we ask that our norms of decency and politeness be followed at all times.
