Description:

The Indian government is developing a Buddha Park on 285 acres of land in Nagarjuna Sagar. In July 2004 on one side of their project on the edge of the hill they allocated 35 acres of land for the development of a Vipassana center. Goenkaji has named this centre Dhamma Nāgājjuna after the great scholar Acharya Nagarjuna who was the chief abbot of Nalanda University. The centre enjoys a beautiful view of the reservoir and the surrounding hills. Dhamma Nāgājjuna is 160 kms from Hyderabad. From Hyderabad one can go by car (2.5 hour journey) or bus (3.5 hour journey).
By feb 2005, a Mini Dhamma Hall to seat 50 to 70 students, Office, Kitchen, Male and Female dormitory and toilets were constructed. The first 10 day course was held here in August 2005 after an additional dormitory and two single rooms with attached toilets were constructed on both sides. In 2006 construction started in the main course area. Since the environment here is ideal for long courses, it was decided to build individual rooms of 10’x10’ each having its own veranda and toilet. 18 such rooms were built of which 12 were used for males and 6 for females. A circular Mini Dhamma Hall for 50 students was also built by July 2007 and the first 10 day course was held here. Later 6 more rooms were added to the female side. A Pagoda with 64 cells was constructed in 2010 and it can be extended up to 200 cells. In 2014 twenty new rooms were constructed on the male side. The rooms are big enough to accommodate 2 people so 86 students can be accommodated. Every month two 10 day courses are conducted and Childrens’ courses on the last day of 10 day courses, teenagers courses, Satipattana courses and 10 day special are held. The first 20 day course was held in 2011. The first 30 day course was held on 30th of April 2014. The first 45 day course was held in January, 2015.
Developments:
Now in its second decade Dhamma Nāgājjuna has been evolving to meet the growing demand of students who want to attend courses. The completion of Kitchen, Dining Hall and Pagoda is a major accomplishment. These 3 projects have costed the center around 1.5 crores. Huge plantation has taken place in the first decade and now the trees stand tall having grown enough to give the barren land a vibrant lush-green look. Trees of Neem, Lemon, Amla, Mango and Kanuga trees occupy the garden. The garden is producing enough lemon and amla for the students.
Recent additions include Solar Water Heaters, Wood Stove and a Bio Gas plant to utilise the fire wood and food waste.

property, purchased in June 1999, is near Palautordera, about 35 miles northwest of the vibrant
city of Barcelona and a similar distance southeast of historic Girona, both of which have
international airports. The French border is just one hour’s drive away. The site is located
approximately 1,300 feet above sea level and is overlooked by the imposing mountains of
Montseny Natural Park (height of over 5,500 ft) and is snow-covered in the winter. Being only
30 minutes from the Mediterranean, the Centre enjoys a mostly mild climate.
A quadrangular building sits in the middle of the level four-acre property, surrounded by a high
hedge and an abundance of fruit and ornamental trees. Presently the Centre accommodates 63
students and servers, but planning permission is expected to be granted for expansion from the
present 7,000 sq feet of construction to about 38,000 sq feet. This will enable the provision of
full facilities for about 120 students, including cells, two Dhamma halls, new teachers’ residences
and kitchen and dining facilities.
The Centre is holding an average of 15 ten-day courses and one 20-day course - as well as several
short and young people’s courses - per year. In addition, there is a growing programme of noncentre
courses in five regional locations on the Spanish Peninsula and the Islands, where
additional seven 10-day courses are being held annually as well as several short courses.

Description:

In 500 BC in South India, Nizamabad with 3 more districts was called Asaka country. A monk called Bavary from this place sent his 16 diciples to North India to learn Vippassana. From this place they spread Vippassana, in South India and South Eastern countries. Dhamma Nijjanna Centre is situated in Pocharam village, which is 13km from Nizamabad district in Andhra Pradesh, India. A non-centre course was conducted in Nizamabad town in 2001 May in a hostel building with 71 students. Seeing the response of the course an old student donated his residence with 1.2 acres land in Pocharam village and with the help of other old students, one-day courses were conducted every sunday for 2 years. During that period a Dhamma hall to seat 50 was constructed and the old residence was modified into male residences for 29 students. Female residences for 25 - seven 3 bedded rooms and two double rooms all with attached toilets, a mini hall for 25, one room each for male and female AT’s, 3 rooms for Dhamma Servers and separate dining halls with kitchen were also constructed. On 15/5/2003 the first 10 day course was conducted and since then one 10-day course, on the first Wednesday of the month, childrens courses on the ending day of the 10-day course, one teenager course and one Sattipattan course per year are being conducted. There is a plan to construct 12 single rooms with female teacher residence and shift the male students to the old female residences. There is also a plan to purchase land for the construction of the Pagoda and extension of the centre. As Nizamabad District is near the border of Maharashtra State many students come from there too. Nizamabad is around 180 kms from Hyderabad and it would take about 3 hours to get there. From Nizamabad it is 13km to Pocharam village. There are buses which go via the centre and the Devgiri express from Hyderabad to Mumabai goes via Nizamabad.

Dhamma Nilaya, meaning ‘House of Dhamma’, is run by the Khmer community in France
(Association Khmer Support Vipassana). It was a private house prior to purchase in May 1997. It
is situated in a quiet suburban area 55 kilometres to the east of Paris and as such it is quite
convenient for the large group of Cambodian and French meditators in the Paris region.
Although extending in area to about 5600 square meters, this is a small facility unable to
accommodate students staying overnight. It runs one-day and courses for children. From July
2005, two one-day courses a month catering for both Khmer and French speaking students will
be held. Dhamma Nilaya has a well-established programme of courses for children being served
by both Khmer speaking and French speaking children’s course teachers.
The Dhamma Hall accommodates up to 40 students and the kitchen and bathing facilities are
quite adequate for that number. It has nicely maintained grounds with mature trees and a pond. It
is a nice quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan region of Paris and is much
valued by those who can spend time there.
