Description:

In 1975 Ratilal Mehta, a very spiritual businessman, after sitting a couple of courses with Goenkaji in Rajasthan, invited him to conduct a course in his newly constructed switch factory in Hyderabad. After a couple of courses being conducted there, he decided to construct a meditation centre in 2 acres of adjoining land. Goenkaji named it Dhamma Khetta and the first course was conducted there in September 1976 – the first centre to conduct a course in this tradition. Initially Goenkaji used to conduct two courses a year there, but later when he appointed Assistant Teachers, a course was conducted every month. Gradually over the years, more land was donated and now the centre has almost 7 acres.

A spacious Dhamma Hall for 150 students and a Pagoda for 72 students were built in the early 1980’s. Later a mini hall for 50 students, one hall for 30 students and another one for 75 students were built. Pagoda cells also have been increased to have a total of 125 cells. There was accommodation for about 90 males and 75 females initially but as the buildings were very old they are being slowly upgraded and now there are 24 single and 15 double rooms on the female side and 20 double rooms and 12 single rooms on the male side. 7 more single rooms on the female side and 28 single rooms on the male side will be built in the future. The kitchen and dining hall will also be upgraded after that. Eventual the centre will cater to 75 male and 60 female students. There are residences for 2 female AT’s and 4 male AT’s.

Two courses are conducted every month, starting on the 1st and 3rd wednesday except when there is a long courses of 30 and 45 days. A childrens course is conducted on the Sunday that the course ends – twice a month. There are many buses from the city to the centre. The centre is 1km away from the main road (which leads to Nagarjuna Sagar). The airport is 34 kms away and the various train stations in Hyderabad are between 20 to 22 kms away.
