Dhamma Maªgala, meaning ‘Auspicious Dhamma’, is established near the city of Ulaanbaater. More than
200 students participated in each of the first two courses held in 1997 in a campsite in Mongolia. These two
courses generated so much enthusiasm for Dhamma that it was decided to establish a Centre immediately.
Ten-day, Satipaµµh±na and 20-day courses are now held at the centre.
Dhamma Mahavana is situated on 109 acres of forested property in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Groves of oak, pine, cedar, and manzanita reinforce the California Vipassana Center's name of Dhamma Mahavana, Great Forest of Dhamma.
The French Vipassana centre is situated on 100 acres of land, 165 kilometres to the south of Paris, in beautiful country, a lovely mixture of woods and meadows. Goenkaji called the centre Dhamma Mahi, « the land of Dhamma ». The climate is temperate, warm summers and wet winters with occasional ice and snow. The property, constructed as a holiday camp for young children, was bought to serve as a Vipassana centre in February 1988. The area for walking is considerably expansive and well protected from both sides by woods. In 1993 a neighbouring farm was bought to house long-term servers and to offer sufficient space to assure a meditative atmosphere.
