Welcome to The Mahamevnawa Meditation Monastery Florida

Sunshine Meditation Center

Sunshine Meditation Center (Mahamevnawa Florida)

The Sunshine Meditation Center is a branch of Mahamevnawa Meditation Monastery in Sri Lanka. SMC works as Mahamevnawa Meditation Center Florida (MMMF). The SMC will provide a quiet, peaceful refuge for all humanity (both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike) with facilities that promote meditation, personal reflection, and spiritual growth. It is our goal to lessen, and inevitably eliminate, the suffering of all beings. We will emphasize the universal teaching of the Buddha that can be applied to modern life. 

Mahamevnawa is an organization of meditation monasteries established for the sake of spiritual development of human beings through the teachings of the Sakyamuni Buddha who was born in 500 B.C. Our only wish is to give you spiritual help in order to make your mind pure which is useful for the realization of Nibbana: the unbounded liberation. We have already established over 50 branch monasteries to give you more space to practice spiritual life. There are thousands of people who have joined with us to practice this joyful spiritual life together. Now, we have spent 17 years with you, with our pure service.

About Vipassana meditation:

Vipassana is the oldest of Buddhist meditation practices.

The object of Vipassana meditation practice is to learn to see the true nature of reality: anicca (impermanence,) dukkha (unsatisfactoriness,) and anatta (selflessness of phenomena.)

“When insight is developed, what purpose does it serve? Discernment is developed. And when discernment is developed, what purpose does it serve? Ignorance is abandoned.” AN 2.31: Vijjābhāgiya Sutta
