One day meditation programs target the Newcomers to Mitirigala Nissarana Vanaya Monastery. This is a series conducted in English. The programs are jointly conducted by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero and his Lay student Aruna Manathunge.

  • We have also included a new movie clip at the end as a response to a question raised by the audience regarding the use of Mindfulness meditation by the US army soldiers. That is the official trailer from the 80 minutes long movie called ‘Free the Mind’. This complete movie will be shown at a future date during the residential retreats at Nissarana Vanaya Monastery.
