Dhamma Bodhi, meaning ‘Enlightenment of Dhamma’, is located in Bodhgaya in South Bihar. The simple 18-acre centre with its fruit trees and well-kept vegetable gardens can accommodate about 80 students in single and double room cottages with attached bathrooms. Surrounded by long stretches of fertile agricultural fields, Dhamma Bodhi’s rural calm is an ideal setting for serious meditation. The centre has a Dhamma Hall that accommodates 80 students, and a pagoda with 70 cells.

All courses are run solely on a donation basis. All expenses are met by donations from those who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the Teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration; they and those who serve the courses volunteer their time. Thus Vipassana is offered free from commercialisation.
Old students are those who have completed a 10-day Vipassana Meditation course with S.N. Goenka or his Assistant Teachers. Old students have the opportunity to provide Dhamma Service at the courses listed.
Meditation courses are held at both center and non-center locations. Meditation centers are dedicated facilities where courses are held regularly throughout the year. Before meditation centers were established in this tradition, all courses were held at temporary sites, such as campgrounds, religious retreat centers, churches and the like. Today, in regions where centers have not yet been established by local students of Vipassana who live in the area, 10 Day meditation courses are held at non-center course sites.
