Dhamma Madhura Vipassana Meditation Centre
Dhamma Madhura, meaning ‘Sweetness of Dhamma’, is one of the many centres committed to teach Vipassana Meditation, an ancient technique of self-introspection, as taught by Ven.S.N.Goenka under the tradition of Ven. Sayaji U Ba Khin.
Dhamma centre is surrounded by the hill on one side, the road on another and a canal of natural water, streaming down the hill during rainy seasons, on the third side. The centre is located 10 km from Dindigul City, 160 km from Coimbatore, 100 km from Tiruchirapalli, 64 km from Madurai, 75 km from Karur and 84 km from Kodaikanal hills. Dhamma Madhurā is able to comfortably accommodate 100 students for Vipassana courses.
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.

Swami Vishnudevananda was born in Kerala, South, in 1927. As a young child one of his main character traits was a strong will and determination. His mother said that whenever her son wanted something, nothing or no-one could stop him. An interesting anecdote tells how as a 5 year old youngster he had the strong desire to go to school and learn. When told that it was not possible since the nearest school was located more than five miles away, the child took upon himself to pack and go early the next morning for the long five mile walk through the jungle. He walked back that evening and would do the same for many years to come.

It is on these five principles that the activities of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre are based.
