May all beings be well and happy !
This is an official website of the Sri Matikarama Purana Vihara. It is a Theravada Buddhist temple in the village of Uda Aparekka which serves all those interested in learning about the Teachings of the Buddha. We offer teachings for children and adults. We welcome practitioners to "come and see" the teachings of the Buddha and to participate in all ritual and cultural events.
Buddha's brief advice is:
Sabba papassa akaranam - kusalassa upasampada
Sacitta pariyodapanam - etam buddhanasasanam
which means - abstain from all evil, cultivate wholesome, and purify one's mind. This is the teachings of all Buddhas.
