Meditation on your trip to Sri Lanka

Buddhism was introduced to Sri Lanka in the third century B.C and become an integral part of the country’s culture with a majority of Sri Lankans following the Buddha’s teachings. Meditation is an integral part of Buddhism, practiced to achieve a balance of mind which helps alleviate the stresses of modern life. Meditation is conducted at most Temples and Buddhist centres across the country while some of the Ayurveda and Yoga retreats conduct guided meditation sessions as an integral part of their holistic wellbeing programmes.

Buddhism in Sri Lanka
Buddhism was introduced to Sri Lanka in the third century B.C. when Emperor Asoka of India sent his son, Mahinda, to the island and introduced Buddhism to the reigning Sinhalese king Devanampiya Tissa (250BC – 207 BC). The king eventually became a powerful patron of Buddhism and established temples and the monastery of Mahavihara, which became the historic center of Theravada Buddhism in Sri Lanka. King Devanampiya Tissa followed the Indian emperor’s strategy of merging the political state with Buddhism. As a result, Buddhism became an integral part of Sinhalese culture and civilisation. Buddhism also had a great effect on the literary development of the island. It was in Sri Lanka that the oral teachings of the Buddha – the Tripitaka – were committed to writing for the first time. The language of these Buddhist scriptures, Pali, influenced the development of the Sinhala language. Since the third century B.C. to date, Buddhism continues to play an integral part in the lives of a majority of Sri Lankans in the country. In addition, the island’s Buddhist monks play a significant role in spreading Buddha’s teachings worldwide.


Ayurveda & Yoga retreats offering meditation

Sri Lanka's cuisine mainly consists of boiled or steamed rice served with curry or “rice and curry” as it is commonly referred to. A well-known rice dish served at breakfast is kiribath, meaning "milk rice." Curries in Sri Lanka are not just limited to meat or fish-based dishes - there are also a vast range of vegetable and even fruit curries. A typical Sri Lankan meal consists of a "main curry" (fish or meat), as well as several other curries of vegetable, lentils and potato. Side-dishes include pickles, chutneys and "sambols" which can sometimes be fiery hot. The most popular of these is the coconut sambol, made of ground coconut mixed with chillies, Maldive fish, lime juice and salt. This is minced into a fluffy combination and eaten with rice, as it gives zest to the meal and is believed to increase appetite. Sambol is also an excellent accompaniment for hoppers, string hoppers, roti or milk rice. Some people enjoy eating red rice with sambol for breakfast.

Sri Lankans also eat mallung - chopped leaves mixed red onions and sometimes with grated coconut. Coconut milk is found in most Sri Lankan dishes, giving the cuisine its unique flavor and adding body to the gravy.

Sri Lanka has long been renowned for its spices. In the 15th and 16th centuries, traders from all over the world who came to Sri Lanka also brought their native cuisine to the island, resulting in a rich diversity of cooking styles and techniques. Lamprais - rice boiled in stock with a special curry, accompanied by "frikkadels" (meatballs), all of which is then wrapped in a banana leaf and baked - is a Dutch-influenced Sri Lankan dish. Dutch and Portuguese sweets also continue to be popular. British influences include roast beef and roast chicken.
