Nilambe Meditation Centre

Tradition: Theravada
Notes and Events:

Contacting Nilambe in the new electronic ways is not always easy - we suggest that you come here and meet us! However, do try Upul on 0777-804 555;  Nalaka on 0777-811 653; or Pitigala on 0776-756 598. You may also want to try email: (sometimes checked).

Getting there and away: The centre is easily reached by the Galaha/Deltota bus #633 from Kandy. It passes Nilambe Office Junction (about 17km). From there it is a steep walk through tea plantations to reach the centre. Alternatively, taxis or autorickshaws are available from Kandy. Advice can also be sought from the Buddhist Publication Society in Kandy. Autorickshaws are often available from the bottom of the office junction, at Nilambe, but the gate half way up the tea estate road is locked most of the time.

General info: Meditators stay from one night to several years, and the centre can help long term meditators with visa extensions. Accommodation at the centre is in single or shared rooms. The centre has no electricity supply, and conditions are adequate but basic. Although this is a lay centre, often there are members of the Sangha undertaking personal retreats at Nilambe. The centre charges 400 Sri Lankan rupees per day (about GBP 2.15 sterling, USD 3.90 at June 2004 rates) to foreigners to cover accommodation and food. Sri Lankans may offer donations instead. The majority of resident meditators are westerners, but many Sri Lankans also use the centre (particularly around Poya days). Teaching is also available in English and Sinhala by the resident teacher, Upul. There is a good library of books and tapes in English and Sinhala. Make sure that you bring a flashlight (no electricity), an umbrella and warm clothes (cold at night). The centre provides bedsheets and pillows et cetera.

Spiritual Director: Ven Pa Auk Sayadaw  
Notes and Events:


Pa-Auk Meditation Centre (\'PAMC), established as a direct lineage of the Pa-Auk Forest Monastery (Pa-Auk), Mawlamyine, Myanmar, received the strong endorsement and support of The Most Venerable Pa-Auk Tawya Sayadaw Bhaddanta Ᾱciṇṇa (the Sayadaw), the Abbot of Pa-Auk.  PAMC is dedicated to the Sangha of Pa-Auk (the Sangha\\) as led by the Sayadaw, and draws its spiritual direction from the Sayadaw.

PAMC was registered in Singapore on 20 August 2007, and its registration was gazetted in the Singapore Government Gazette Notification No. 2555 dated 22 August 2007. 


PAMC serves to promote the learning and practice of Samatha and Vipassanā meditation, based on the teachings of Lord Gotama Buddha, as taught by the Sayadaw at Pa-Auk.

PAMC\\\'s principal activities include the following:

  • providing a conducive venue for the learning and practice of meditation under the guidance of resident teacher(s)
  • organizing  regular meditation retreats, courses and Dhamma talks (based on the Tipiṭaka, the Pāli Texts and the Commentaries),  taught by teachers authorized by the Sayadaw (and/or the Sangha)
  • publishing of Dhanmma books and CDs of Dhamma talks approved by Pa-Auk. 


 Our vision is to establish a meditation retreat centre with an environment that encourages the observance of the Vinaya and precepts, and conducive for the long-term practice by both monastics and lay meditators. The retreat centre is envisaged to have separate facilities for male and female meditators, including separate meditation halls and residential facilities, providing a certain degree of solitude and minimum distraction.

Our longer term vision is to have a Sangha residing in Singapore, forming part of the larger Pa-Auk Sangha, so that the Sadhamma (true teachings of the Buddha) can be taught and practised, can take root, develop and sustain, and will flourish in Singapore and beyond, for the welfare and happiness of all. 


PAMCs Logo, comprising the Asoka Lion Pillars topped by the Wheel of Dhamma, is similar to that of Pa-Auk. The Logo encompasses the following key features  :   

  • It symbolizes PAMCs lineage of Pa-Auk Forest Monastery 
  • Lion  is representative of the Buddha in many ways; Lion also symbolizes Singapore, the Lion City
  • The words Sīla (morality), Samādhi (Concentration), Paññā (Wisdom) as inscribed on the Wheel of Dhamma, represent the undertaking of Threefold Training (of the Noble Eightfold Path) that will systematically purify ones body, speech and mind (of defilements)  in order to realize Nibbana, a state of supreme peace and happiness  

The Logo hence depicts PAMCs direct lineage to Pa-Auk, and its aspiration  to be the place where :

  • The true teachings of the Buddha (the Sadhamma) are taught, and the Wheel of Dhamma turns,
  • The Threefold Training is undertaken and practised, can take root, developed and  sustained, will flourish in Singapore and beyond, for the welfare  and happiness of all.

Notes and Events:

One of the final wishes of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, was that his sons, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche and Chokling Rinpoche, build a monastery in Lumbini. This, he saw, would serve as a great inspiration for innumerable sentient beings and bring extraordinary benefit. Now, through the aspirations and heartfelt commitment of the sangha, this vision is about to become a reality. The monastery, which will be known as Pal Thubten Shedrub Ling, is about to be built on land granted by the Government of Nepal as a national heritage site and the architectural plans have already been drawn up.

As a major seat for the representations of enlightened Body, Speech and Mind, the monastery will house three large statues representing the Buddhas of the past, present and future. In addition, the monastery will house 1000 exquisite, golden representations of all the Buddhas of this Fortunate Aeon. Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and his sons have aspired that Pal Thubten Shedrub Ling will come to serve not only as an important monastic seat of learning and practice, but also as a source of immediate and ever-lasting peace and well-being for all sentient beings..

This monastery is currently being built , ccompletion by 2013/14.
