People living in this world are constantly working hard to get rid of all kinds of mundane sufferings of life. The modern science is always trying to give an answer to this question by introducing new inventions with unending research, but have not come across an ultimate solution. Day by day the problems are getting more complicated. Buddha has found the way to get rid of all sufferings and his teaching on the path to freedom is documented in the tipitaka. But it is not easily understood by the layman just reading the text. Only a good teacher who has practiced the path to freedom successfully and experienced the teachings can explain in a systematic way for novices to understand. Siri Amathagavesi Foundation was established to take you to an experienced teacher. He is Ven. Panditha Waturugama Nanadasiri thero. Nandasiri thero teaches Saddha Seela, Samadhi, Panna sections with meditation through a very pragmatic approach and proven that an ordinary man is able to understand the path to nirvana. Over 12000 laypeople from Sri Lanka and abroad have followed his teachings and have improved their intelligence to understand the life and how to overcome the suffering.

The entire course is divided into the following sections.

1.    Saddha Bhawana       (Devotion meditation)
2.    Seela bhavana            (Seela Meditation)
3.    Samadi bhawana        (Samata  Meditation)
4.    Kayanupassana          (Contemplation of Body)
5.    Chitanupassana          (Contemplation of Thoughts)
6.    Panna bhavana           (Wisdom Meditation)

There are residential and part time classes organized by the management. The seven day residential course is conducted at Veluwanaramaya temple, Kannimahara, Waturugama (Gampaha District) Sri Lanka.

Notes and Events:


In November 1992, a young man attended the Sunday morning Puja at the Subang Jaya Buddhist Association made an interesting observation. He noticed that there were many adults and children, but hardly any teenagers. This sparked a thought: what SJBA really needed was a section catering for youths to gather and interact while learning the Dhamma. Inspired by this idea, he gathered a group of teenagers and established the SJBA Youth Section. The year was 1993. Over the years, this section grew leaps and bounds under the guidance of that very young man, our dynamic founder and first chairperson, Bro. Ong Beng Chung, and subsequently, his successors who followed. In 1997, we decided to expand our gatherings into two separate sessions in order to fulfill and cater to the needs of two different age groups.

The Young Seekers Gathering, held on Friday night, caters primarily to college or university students and young working adults. Dhamma programs and activities are planned by a committee focusing on members spiritual development. The younger members, however, were given a different approach. Based on the concept of "by the members for the members", our Sundays Teen Quest Gathering sees a vibrant committee running the show with close guidance from their older brothers and sisters in the Youth Section itself. Having a younger committee often translates to having more creative and interesting Dhamma-based programs.

Besides our weekly gatherings that gives the much needed emphasis on Dhamma, our members also take up various projects such as camps, exhibitions, fellowship outings, and welfare activities. Having to take up the responsibility of planning and organizing these projects, our members embark on the practical approach to learning important living-skills such as peers-interaction, social and communication as well as leadership skills.

Through encouraging active participation and continual trainings, we hope to mold our members into responsible and capable Buddhist leaders of tomorrow. Ultimately, when they participate, we also hope that they will come to love and have faith in the Triple Gem and learn how to apply the Dhamma in their daily lives.


  1. To instill the love for learning, practicing and propagating the Buddha-Dhamma as to cater for the spiritual needs of the individuals.
  2. To build individuals with a socially-engaged attitude as to cater for the social needs of the individuals, the families and the society at large.
  3. To provide a conducive environment for the development of academic excellence among members.
  4. To implement a systematic Buddhist training and development programme for the members.


Towards a strong and committed youth group to cater for an integrated enhancement of an individuals overall quality with the Triple Gem as the members Supreme Guide.

Notes and Events:

NEPAL is well known in the world because of its two prominent locations. The first one is Mount Everest, the highest summit of the world while the second one is Lumbini, the holy spot sanctified by the birth of Lord Buddha. Nepal being the birth land of Lord Buddha, the greatest apostle of world peace, foreigners visiting this country feel themselves glorified and when they step into this land, they expect to learn something solid on Buddhist religion and philosophy.

In 1997 AD when Nepal Buddhist Council was established, there were no suitable environment existed in this Buddhist land for disseminating knowledge on Buddhism. Whereas, in many other countries of the world, like Japan, China, Sri-Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar etc., there are numerous schools, colleges and universities which are being set up for disseminating Buddhist education from different aspects. The World Buddhist Conference organized in New South Wales, Australia from 29th October to 2nd November in the year 1998 has also decided to set up a world Buddhist University and has passed a charter to establish its head office in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. It is a fact known to all.

When the trans-oceanic countries are taking keen interest in Buddhism and setting up educational institutions for spreading its knowledge in a massive scale, it is but an irony of fact that no suitable institutions exist in this Buddhist land for undertaking such a laudable venture. Taking note of all these facts, the Nepal Buddhist Council did venture to operate a free class on Buddhism. In this connection it started a foundation course on Buddhism from Theravada to Bajrayana since 2003 AD. To our pride, the classes were regarded as very successful and has completed its ninth batch till date. Within this time more than 300 participants have successfully completed the course. It has operated many symposiums, talk programmes, seminars, and also had published 13 books and 9 souvenirs with scholarly articles on Buddhism, which have been popular among the readers.

We feel proud to announce that Nepal Buddhist Council is now opening a Buddhist collage in Lalitpur, with the name of Sugata Buddhist College under the affiliation of Lumbini Buddhist University. The objective of this college is to provide education on Master level in Buddhism. We believe the Buddhist education in the college will quench the thrust of the students willing to accomplish their Master Degree in Buddhism in Nepal.
