Umandawa Sri Lanka
The Sangha lead by the Venerable Siri Samanthabadra Maha Thero, has performed a tremendous service to the country and the society through Siri Sadaham Monastery for a period of more than a decade. Siri Sadaham Monastery is situated in Bellanthara, Colombo.
A distinctive concept of Most Ven Siri Samanthabhadra Arahath Thero, Umandawa is spread across 70 acres in Malsiripura, Kurunegala. Umandawa was initially an abandoned land that was overgrown with jungle, the Thero visualized a master plan to create an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly ‘walking monastery’ with hamlets, gravel paths, gardens, organic farms, ponds and large water bodies, and sculptures.
The balance of the environment was re-aligned by creating rain gardens and by growing several varieties of plants, flowers as well as trees both Sri Lankan and foreign. By doing so wildlife too has been encouraged to flourish at Umandawa. The Thero created a healthy, and nourishing environment, where people can learn the art of living in harmony with one another and with the Earth.
Now you can be a part of our project in building thousand Buddha statues at the Umandawa Buddhist Universal Village.
