About Nisala Foundation
Established in 2014 by Acharin G. Wijenayake, Nisala Foundation stands as a beacon of spiritual awakening in Sri Lanka and globally. It is recognized as one of the few places worldwide where participants can easily attain the profound state of 'Shunya'—the state of effortless consciousness, in a relatively short period of time. Located in the heart of Sri Lanka's central highlands, the Foundation is enveloped by lush greenery and scenic paddy fields, offering a serene and breathtaking environment conducive to deep meditation and introspection.
Our residential retreats are particularly distinguished for consistently guiding participants into deep states of relaxation, inner clarity, and spiritual awakening. This extraordinary journey to 'Shunya' is facilitated through an age-old, though rare, method of direct transmission from teacher to student, combined with various powerful techniques for cathartic purification and induction. These methods have been carefully honed to ensure that every participant can access these transformative states.
Nisala Foundation is not just a meditation center; it's a global meeting point for seekers of all backgrounds. People from around the world regularly attend our retreats, drawn by the promise of a genuine and profound spiritual experience. Being non-denominational in nature, our retreats, outreach programs, and online events are designed to accommodate everyone,including those beginning their spiritual quest to those seeking deeper enlightenment.
We cordially invite you to Nisala Foundation, a place where ancient wisdom is vividly alive and accessible. Here, you can immerse yourself in an environment that fosters profound relaxation and spiritual discovery. Join us in this unique and nurturing space, amidst the natural beauty of Sri Lanka, and embark on a transformative journey to inner peace and awakening.
