High in the mountains near Kandy is a meditation retreat center at which I sometimes stay. It is situated on an old tea plantation. A few years ago I was up there taking photographs to be used in a web site that they had asked me to publish for them.  http://paramitaibc.org

It was a Saturday and women from the nearby town of Kadugannawa were there for their weekly meditation instruction. The resident monk was delivering a Dhamma talk for them when I took this photo. A young novice looks on.

Many homes in Sri Lanka are multi-generational. Younger women have little time for the contemplative life as they are busy raising children and running the home. But as they become older and the next generation steps up, they are able to pursue a more spiritual life.
