Overview
More
Ashram sir lanka is a spiritual retreat center. Where a place full of entire peace and tranquility, People occasionally need to attend to a conductive retreat, a place spiritually to recuperate and re-energize people in to their spiritual rejuvenation. This can be done both individually and collectively. A retreat can reinforce the day to day discipline in that we need to have to integrate spirituality in our lives in every step. Spirituality is a way of life and not just a means of relief. We have created an environment to magnify the way for the path to the freedom for you to find out who you really are, by being the teacher yourself; to seek what is the truth about who we are in this mirage life.( at the ashram you learn how to be happy with nothing)
