Panditarama Lumbini International Vipassana Meditation Center is located inLumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha and one of the four main places of pilgrimage for Buddhists. Lumbini is an international project including re-developing the ancient sites and constructing countless new monasteries. It is located in southern Nepal, near the Indian border.

Panditarama Lumbini International Vipassana Meditation Center was set up bySayadaw U Panditabhivamsa of Myanmar in cooperation with the Venerable Sayadaw U Asabhacara and inaugurated on February 7, 1999.

Panditarama Lumbini offers a supportive, comfortable and peaceful setting for dhamma-students seeking practice. The meditation method is Intensive Vipassanain the tradition of the Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw of Myanmar, which consists of sitting meditation and formal walking meditation throughout the day. Almost daily interviews and regular Dhamma-talks in English. Meditators observe Noble Silenceand keep eight precepts.

Panditarama Lumbini offers an ongoing retreat year-round. Meditators may schedule their individual retreat from a few days up to several months starting at any time of the year.

The resident teacher, Venerable Vivekananda, has trained with the Venerable Sayadaw U Panditabhivamsa of Myanmar since 1988. Venerable Vivekanandateaches meditation in English, Burmese, German and French.

The resident teacher, Sayalay Bhadda Manika, has trained under the Venerable Sayadaw U Panditabhivamsa of Burma for many years. Since the winter season of 2007, Sayalay Daw Bhadda Manika has joined interviewing meditators on six days a week.

Panditarama Lumbini is keeping the old tradition of Dana and has operated from its very beginning entirely on the principle of generosity. There are no set daily fees and monetary donations are used to maintain and further develop the meditation center for the benefit of present and future meditators.

If you plan a retreat at the center please read carefully the guidelines for meditators and contact the retreat manager to schedule your arrival and duration of stay.
