Dhamma Paṭṭhāna, meaning ‘Established in Dhamma’ is the sacred place where the Buddha gave the famous Maha Sutta, the discourse that contains the essence of Vipassana. Constructed on seven acres of green land 45 Km from the Delhi bus terminal (Kashmiri Gate), the Dhamma Centre is completely ready for meditation for old and serious meditators. As mentioned in the Maha Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta ‘in Kuru Pradesh’,  these was a place (Nigam) called Kammasdamma. It is this very place, where the historic center has been located. The Buddha gave Satipatthana and many other important suttas in this region.

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.
