The Center

Dhamma Paphulla is one of the many meditation centres in the world dedicated to the practice of Vipassana meditation, as taught by S.N.Goenka. It is situated on the outskirts of Bengaluru, the capital city of Karnataka state in the southern part of India.

Dhamma Paphulla meaning ‘Cheerfulness of Dhamma’ is serenely set on 10 acres of land just adjoining a natural stream.

The land was received as donation in the year 2003. Courses started after building two small dormitories, a functional kitchen and a basic office. The meditation hall was a thatched roof structure. Gradually it is shaping into a fully developed centre providing the apt environs for about 120 people to meditate at one time.
