Overview of Sri Lanka monasteries

Listing of monasteries

So far there is a number of Sri Lankan monasteries/meditation centres listed on this blog. But there are many, many more dotted around the island of Sri Lanka, so I wouldn’t be doing my duty if I didn’t share the following information, supplied by a veteran of the Sri Lankan Dhamma life, Bhikkhu Nyanatusita, seen above at the Forest Hermitage in Kandy.

The venerable is a Dutch monk who lived in Sri Lanka for two decades and gathered into a PDF document a vast knowledge of the country’s monastic offerings. The document he compiled, last updated in 2018, contains almost 40 pages of detailed information that is a must-read for any serious yogi or aspiring monk looking to understand what’s available here.
