Residential and Non-Residential training for Young Men Requesting Ordination

As well as the creative non-residential training for young men outlined in our last past, residential training is also available at retreat centres at  Bhaja and Bor Dharan. In these, young men have the opportunity to live in a residential spiritual community, and to support the retreat centre. These photos are from the Vidarbha and North Indian regions.

Non-Residential Going for Refuge Training Course for Young Men.

Mon, 4 Feb, 2019 - 18:05


In a creative initiative from our ordination teams in India, young men are now able to join an 18 month non-residential training course. 72 young men study 6 major themes in the city environment, and go on retreat for a more meditative experience. The men are befriended and undertake written projects and speakers’ classes, receiving feedback throughout the course.  The aim is to provide a thorough Dhamma training for young men unable to go on extended retreats. They...

Remembering Bhante in India

Sat, 3 Nov, 2018 - 12:49

A very moving film of Bhante in India. Despite the constant attention and long train rides, he looks so delighted to see the Indian Buddhists. Let us continue his work in India in his memory with the India Dhamma Trust.
