Suryavana is the new retreat Centre for the Valencia Buddhist Centre. One possible translation of Suryavana is rather apt description ‘the sun’s dwelling place’. The Valencia Buddhist Centre bought a retreat centre of their own to cater for their gradually expanding retreat programme: increasing from three to four retreats a year to approximately twenty to twenty five retreats annually.
This Newsbyte explores the importance of going on retreat as a means of coming in touch with yourself, the earth and nature - with some beautiful footage of the lands around the retreat centre - and the hopes for the future of Suryavana.
