The renowned spiritual leader and socially engaged Buddhist monk Venerable Bhikkhu Sanghasena, spiritual director of the Mahabodhi International Meditation Center (MIMC) in northern India, has announced a series of meditation retreat dates for 2023

“I would like to offer all seekers of truth and lovers of peace a hearty welcome to the high Himalayas to experience our unique Shangrila meditation,” Ven. Bhikkhu Sanghasena shared with BDG. “As such, we are thrilled to announce the dates for our 2023 Meditation & Yoga Retreats, at the Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre’s Sambodhi Retreat Centre!”

A non-sectarian Buddhist non-profit charitable organization based in Ladakh, in India’s far north, the MIMC has become the launchpad for Dharma-based activities and social outreach programs for vulnerable communities in the region.

“We look forward to having your presence at our serene and enchanting retreat center here in the high Himalayas!” Ven. Bhikkhu Sanghasena affirmed.

Ven. Bhikkhu Sanghasena founded the Mahabodhi International Meditation Center in Leh, the joint capital of Ladakh, in 1986. He has since become an exemplar of socially engaged Buddhism in the region, launching numerous humanitarian projects, events, and initiatives. His outreach work includes providing educational opportunities and refuge for underprivileged children, empowerment and literacy programs for women and other socially disadvantaged groups, healthcare for the sick and needy, and a care home for the aged and destitute. The MIMC’s expanding campus has evolved into a hub for a multitude of socio-cultural and community programs in India’s far north.

In addition to integrating spiritual development and human welfare, Ven. Bhikkhu Sanghasena and the MIMC are also closely involved in peace-building and interfaith dialogue, environmental conservation, and in promoting Buddhist and Himalayan cultural heritage through national and international festivals. Ven. Bhikkhu Sanghasena has traveled extensively to participate international conferences, seminars, and workshops to promote spiritual and cultural values, environmental awareness, non-violence and world peace, and elevating the status of women in society—especially those from underprivileged communities.
