We are very pleased to inform you that we are arranging our 8th successive Dhammakranti Retreat at Buddha Gaya.  All are welcome to attend.  It is a wonderful and spiritual experience to be in retreat at the Enlightenment Place of the Buddha.

In the retreat we will do Meditation under the Bodhi Tree, listen to Dhamma talks, enjoy Buddhist Rituals, Group Discussion & Cultural Activities: this way we feel & experience close to the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha.  Many people come from all over India and abroad. donations page
