Meditation Retreat in
Gajang Kongpo Monastery 

January 2024

Next January, Lama Samten and Tenzin Gawa (Jason) will fly to South India a Meditation Retreat in Gajang Kongpo Monastery, together with a visit of the Buddhist Caves Ajanta & Ellora, located close to Mumbai. You are welcome to join us. We ask certain essential prerequisites, in order to take full advantage of this spiritual journey. The best preparation would be to have followed the Courses given at Paramita Centre : Calm-Abiding Meditation Course and Lamrim (Buddhist Philosophy) Course; or else, if you already studied and practiced Buddhism since a while. You can see here the video of our retreat at Gajang Kongpo monastery in 2017. The price of the stay should be approximately 2950$, including all meals, lodging and visits. You have to add on top of that the price of the international flight.
