Panditarama in Lumbini, some info?

Postby upekkha » Sun May 03, 2009 3:33 pm

Hey there,

I have been told that the resident teacher at the Panditarama centre in Lumbini is highly realized and knowledgeable, and have gotten a recommendation to go there for retreat (3 months). I have listened to several talks of his archived by dharmaseed (http://www.dharmaseed.org) and I was very impressed indeed.

Does anyone have some experience with this centre in regards to health issues, living conditions, and anything else?

I would highly appreciate some information and advice from someone who has been there.

Cheers!

Here is their website:

http://www.panditarama-lumbini.info/

It looks like a great place to study and meditate at. I have not been to this temple, but I have been to Lumbini and thought it was a wonderful place. It sounds like a good place to do a retreat, in my opinion.

Hello upekkha, all,

If you are looking for weather information on the internet, look for Bhairahawa rather than Lumbini:

This is the official website of the Government of Nepal Meteorological Forecasting Division:
