PO Bodh-Gaya 824231
Dist, Gaya, Bihar
Abbot: Ven. Dr. Rastrapal, Mahathera

He was a student of Dipa Ma, and a wonderful teacher. I was there for two days.

Yes, they have 10 and 30 day retreats

Yes, it's best to make arrangements before going. :)

Thank you so much mr. gordo for this info..Even I am thinking of taking a 10 day retreat in mahasi-style.

Is this address info complete and can I send a snail mail to them ? Do they have a phone number where I can call ?

I'm not actually sure. I went to Bodhgaya without even calling or mailing them.
