Dhamma Salila, meaning 'Water of Dhamma', lies in the Doon Valley of the Himalayas, in Dholos Village on Noon river. The Centre is 10 km from Clock Tower in Dehradun. Established in December, 1995, the centre presently holds about twenty courses a year. Twenty double rooms for males and sixteen double rooms for females are presently available. Seventy-eight cells have been built for meditators.
Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, i.e., an Art of Living.
The technique of Vipassana Meditation is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results. There are no charges for the courses - not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from people who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit.
Dehradun Vipassana Meditation Centre is on the left bank of upstream of Rivulet Noon. Further upstream of Rivulet Noon, on the right bank is the pilgrimage place, Santala Devi temple which is about 2 Kms Kilometer from our Vipassana Meditation centre. Our Meditation centre is well connected by Road, Rail and Air.
