“Buddha is where peace is..!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Very peaceful place to visit and have a closest darshan with tibetial style poojas, where monks are not bothered with the visitors and are extremely involved in their poojas. Nice place.

“Great introductions to Tibetan Buddhism”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Whether you're interested in meditation, philosophy, or both, Tushita's introductory courses and retreats are a great introduction. They also host more advanced courses and retreats every now and then, and you can check their schedule online (http://www.tushita.info/).

“great for daily drop-in meditation”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Dharamsala. The land of his holiness, the Dalai Lama. You'd think that in a place that is founded upon Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan liberation, there would be a place for the common person to go meditate. Unfortunately, meditation in all of the main monastery's is restricted to monks only, (unless you want to sit and meditate by yourself amongst swarms of tourists taking photos of the monastery). Because of this, my sister and I went up to Tushita for their daily morning meditation class. As we hiked up the road to the meditation center, we saw many monkeys climbing all over the trees which was amazing. As we walked, we left the hustle and bustle of Mcleod Ganj behind us, and we reminded that we are in an amazing natural habitat nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas. When we reached the center, we walked around the grounds which are peaceful and quiet, and then went in for our one hour meditation center. As people who do not often meditate, we found this beginner session to be enlightening, calming, and a great way to start the morning. I do not know how it would be to stay here for a long amount of time, but for a nice (and free, although donations are recommended) way to start a day in Dharamsala, I highly recommend it for anyone passing through!
