Tushita Meditation Centre
Perhaps the most popular meditation center in Himachal is the Tushita Meditation Centre. The centre focuses on Buddhist philosophy and teachings, offering a wealth of meditation and spiritual retreat facilities along with courses on Buddhism. Introductory and group retreat courses as well as drop-in sessions are also on offer. Courses are suitable for anyone from absolute beginner to the seasoned practitioner.
Here you can completely immerse yourself in silent meditation amidst the beautiful, natural environment. The morning session starts with shamatha meditation (mindfulness), which aims to develop concentration and awareness. The other meditation sessions include a series of analytical meditation retreats and chanting of mantras that provide a relaxing and powerful experience. All the course takers are required to do Karma Yoga, which involves participating in activities like cleaning, sweeping, washing dishes and the general upkeep of the center. All the classes are led by Buddhist practitioners or course teachers holding decades of experience.
