Tushita Meditation Centre, Dharamshala Reviews
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!
I did an introduction course here. All I can say is that the grounds are very conducive and suited for spiritual experiences and meditation. Would highly recommend a visit even if just for a morning meditations or just to see the place. If you're looking for information about courses etc. their website is extremely thorough.
Beautiful and serene place. Best thing I have done in Dharamshala is to visit Tushita. 2 Day meditation course was life changing experience. Would recommend it to everyone who want to explore and learn Buddhism principles and participate in free guided meditation at 9:30 every morning.
Tushita is a centre for the study and practice of Buddhism from the Tibetan Mahayana tradition in Himachal Pradesh in northern India. It is located in the forested hills above the town of McLeod Ganj in village Dharamkot. The centre offers Introduction to Buddhism Courses and intermediate level courses for those who have already taken one of these introduction courses besides conducting Group Practice Retreats for practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism.
It was a deep moments of self realization.. my initial experience with meditation.. I realized how important is to be aware of our breathing. How magical is to observe that every breath we inhale is unique and and keep us as living being... moment of inner peace .. hope I can continue my practice..
