Multiple Characters Multiple Suffering

Meditation is a qualitative development. We misidentify meditation for rest and stop there without reaching that qualitative state. We always wear a wrong dress as meditation. Rest is only a by-product of meditation. Ease is only a by-product of meditation. No need to meditate for ease, as it is possible to relax when leaving the restless and stressful society for a calm and quiet place.

About Upul Nishantha Gamage

Upul Nishantha Gamage, present resident meditation teacher, has been guiding thousands of people from different backgrounds who come to Nilambe to practice meditation. According to the article titled “Mistakes” published in Dhammaja (Nilambe Buddhist Meditation centre Newsletter-Volume 2, Jan 2009), he started meditation in 1977, at 13 years of age. At that time, he was instrumental in establishing a Youth Society at a Buddhist Temple near his parents’ house and got involved in many activities as the Secretary of the Society. In late 80’s, he had offered to help Godwin at a point where someone’s assistance with the activities at the Meditation Centre was vital. Subsequently, he had been introduced to those at the Centre by Godwin as the “new boss” of Nilambe.

Ever since he has been a very dear friend and an outstanding Dhamma teacher for thousands of people who attend programs conducted by him, also many others who are yet to attend his programs and a counselor for those who are in need of counseling. Besides teaching at Nilambe, Upul conducts programs at prisons, schools, monasteries, private residences etc. He is regularly invited to conduct meditation retreats in Hong Kong, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden. According to his teaching, practice of Meditation paves the path to help ourselves, to understand ourselves and to change ourselves for better as we are becoming more and more mindful about all our day-to-day activities. Moreover, Upul’s great ability to speak to our hearts and practical and philosophical way of presenting Dhamma has enormous power to make us practice Meditation in a joyful manner.
