Dhamma M​uttā, meaning​ the “Pearl of Dhamma”, ​is located in the leafy valley of Tung Wan of South Lantau Island, Hong Kong. Having Shek Pik Reservoir and Tung Wan Beach in its vicinity and being 22km away from the Hong Kong International Airport, this permanent centre is secluded from the city and yet is a convenient location offering a tranquil environment ideal for meditation. With the first two phases of facilities in operation and a capacity of over 80 students, Dhamma M​uttā is the main venue in Hong Kong for 10-day courses.

Hang Tau non-permanent centre has been the first place in the territory dedicated exclusively to the teaching of Vipassana meditation since 1999. Originally farmland, it is located in a quiet village of Hang Tau in Sheung Shui. It is accessible by public transportation with basic facilities of living quarters accommodating about 50 students. Short courses are held all year round with occasional 10-day courses.

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.

Bilingual courses are courses which are taught in two languages. All students will hear daily meditation instructions in both languages. The evening discourses will be heard separately.

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.
