Vipassana Meditation Centre, Sravasti

This meditation centre is situated right on State Highway 26, opposite Buddha Inter College, barely a few minutes walk from the Jetavana Archaeological Park. As Jetavana is the place where the Buddha spent more time than anywhere else (24 rain retreats), this centre is highly recommended for those who wish to learn meditation, as well as the experienced meditators.

The center offers Ten-day courses, which are held twice a month. These are fully residential courses, and each course can accommodate about 50 students. Old students of this technique are welcome to attend shorter courses also, which are offered from time to time. A complete schedule of the courses, the code of discipline to be followed, and facility of online application is available at the following site: http://courses.dhamma.org/en/schedules/schsuvatthi
