Welcome to Nirodha Retreats Worldwide

We are a non profit organisation established for the benefit of the  spiritual seekers who use meditation as a path towards  liberation as taught by Theravada Buddhist tradition of South Asia. 

 

First Nirodha Trust was established in 2005, followed by the establishment of the first Nirodha City Centre in Colombo, Sri Lanka in 2010. 

 

Retreats Worldwide was later established to handle the worldwide retreats that were conducted across 4 continents. Today after 10 years since its

establishment and with a background of over 30 years of meditation teaching, Nirodha Retreats is building their new Retreat Centre in the central hills of Sri Lanka.

  

There are many benefits that Retreats Worldwide can provide a practitioner not only through their philosophy of teaching but also the wide range of personalised support that the individual yogi could truly benefit from. Hope you find this website helpful for your spiritual journey.
