Tushita Meditation Centre, Dharamshala Reviews
Tushita is a meditation center based on Tibetan Buddhism tradition. I did my first introduction course on October 2017 and my second intermediate course on July 2018. I will definitely recommend it, specially if your searching to learn about Buddhism and start with your meditation practice. The place is beautiful and peaceful is a perfect environment to connect with your inner self. Also if you register in advance you will have the chance to choose your room, if you are one of the last to register probably you will take the last rooms. The only down side for me is that during moonzon season some rooms could be a bit moldy, beside of that everything is great! Food is amazing! And peanut butter is just delicious Staff is helpful and kind :)
I attended the free morning meditation session here twice. The session was popular, well taught and professional and I really enjoyed it. The Tushita compound is beautiful and well maintained. There's a peaceful atmosphere and I think it would be lovely to do a course here!
A very peaceful place to come visit if you are in the area. You can spend a day wondering around, meditating during their morning guided meditation sessions and enjoy books on Buddhism and Tibetan history and culture in their library that’s open for anyone. You can even rent books to take with you for a few days if you are staying there for a while. Very friendly staff and volunteers who are there for you to help. They have Introduction to Buddhism silent retreat that last for 10 days. An incredible place for a thing like that. I’ve stayed there for that course in July, 2018 during monsoon season and watching those clouds rolling up and down those mountains was meditative on its own! The accommodation isn’t ideal and the group I was a part of was very large (111 people) plus additional course of about 20 people who where taking an intermediate course. But overall it’s a very nice place! Good food! I wish they were selling their peanut butter too, it’s sooo good! The only this is it’s getting not as secluded anymore which is out of their control, due to the popularity of the area and a very high volume of tourists coming. Many bars are opening and I could hear the music in the evenings (during the course you go to bed around 9-10pm with 5am wake up). So I guess that’s different from about 10 years back time. But if you have ear plugs you can solve that problem easily!
A lovely and welcoming place to practice meditation. To get the best out of their free morning sessions, aim to arrive a few minutes before 09:30 to get settled and calm yourself before starting.
Place is uphill from dharamkot. The atmosphere is really clam and soothing. You can try one hour meditation which is from 9:30 to 10:30 and if you want to explore more about meditation you can reach the registration office. Everything is donation based no extra charge for morning one hour meditation but it's good if you can donate.
