An Invitation to Disconnect


Humble Beginnings

It is a mindfulness practicing centre for lay people as well as a monastery for monks engaged in Buddhism. We practice in the plum village traditions as taught by venerable Thich Nhat Hanh. It could also be called Zen Meditative way of living.

It is an opportunity to enjoy a restful simple living. We learn how to cultivate energy of mindfulness while we do our ordinary daily activities like eating, washing, walking and sitting. By this very practice itself, we could transform our individual suffering. Accept the fact that disappointments and dissatisfactions are inevitable.

We understand that the time and space to escape from the hustle and bustle of life can be in limited supply, which is why we dedicate so much time and effort into all the preparations. We’re sure doing something right, because most of our guests keep returning for more.

His teachings is so true right now right here seriously removes all our stress , ego , worries etc a minute of concentration over breath has a magic to control our anger sorrows etc....Zen is a wonderful way to lead a practical life rather than sitting for hours and offering payer in temples and religious places those people knows only to discriminate people in the name of caste but this zen way of life cares about everyone and helps to lead a healthy peaceful harmonious life..

Thank you
