Welcome Upul Gamage

July 15, 2017

Thursday 20 July 7:30pm at Yoga Tree:

Green Papaya Sangha has the pleasure to welcome Upul Gamage, the resident meditation teacher of Nilambe Meditation Center located in the hills above Kandy, Sri Lanka.

Upul has been guiding thousands of people from different backgrounds who come to Nilambe to practice Vipassana meditation.   Upul’s interest in meditation began in 1977 at the early age of 13 and he was instrumental in establishing a Youth Society at the Buddhist temple near his home. He later met Godwin Samararatne who had founded Nilambe.  Upul continued to assist Godwin who was a very beloved teacher and subsequently Upul took over the direction of Nilambe since Godwin’s passing in 2000.

Besides teaching at Nilambe, Upul  conducts programs at prisons, schools, monasteries, private residences etc. He is regularly invited to conduct meditation retreats in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Germany and Switzerland. According to his teaching, practice of Meditation paves the path to help ourselves, to understand ourselves and to change ourselves for better as we are becoming more and more mindful about all our day-to-day activities. Moreover, Upul’s great ability to speak to our hearts and practical and philosophical way of presenting Dhamma has enormous power to make us practice Meditation in a joyful manner.

We hope you can join us for this opportunity to engage in discussion and loving kindness meditation with Upul.
