I visited in April 2014 after 2 years ( July 2012 ) and had a tremendous experience. Venerable Joan took our classes , she epitomises love Compassion and influences your psyche. Richard is actually more humorous than meditative . Very good management and great ambience with good food. Would definitely visit again.

The particular meditation teacher at the time (Richard) didn't do it for me at all, and the meditations were not Buddhist meditations, just his own style. Other meditation leaders (Jonas, Glen, Joan) were much better and worth doing.... More

Stayed at Tushita in April for the Introduction to Buddism Course. First of all the surroundings of Tushita are beautiful, it is so peaceful even though it is not that far from the town. The facilities at Tushita include drop in meditation, library and movie days. The accommodation was much better than I expected, yes it is basic but perfectly... More

Silence during the courses really allows to get into the teachings, and at the same time a strong bond is formed with other participants and the environment. Great food, too, so important in the...

I went for 3 meditation sessions....its held from 9 30 am to 10 30 am on weekdays. Its totally worth the effort ....the place is beautiful, silent and the guided meditation is extremely effective. Would advice everyone to visit the center if they are in Mcleodganj.

I took the 10 day intro to Buddhism course in February 2012. I had studied a little bit about Buddhism prior, but this experience confirmed my faith in the Buddha's teachings. I met so many amazing people and some of us actually went on to travel together. The vegetarian food was excellent. The room was simple and clean. It does... More

I just completed a 10 day silent meditation/Intro to Buddhism course in June 2013. The silence really forces you to take an inward look at yourself and the meditation and Buddist courses challenge you to revelautae your life and your way of seeing the world. This retreat was one of the hardest yet easiest things I have ever done in... More
