The Church in India today is buoyant with life and vibrant with activity. The presence of so many young men and women accepting God’s call to be consecrated priests and committed religious is a sure sign of its vitality. The world today is eagerly looking for authentic paradigms of Christian holiness, and the universal Church today depends someway on the Indian Church for convinced, qualified and committed religious for witnessing and furthering of Christ’s worldwide mission.

Dhyanavana, which in Sanskrit means a ‘meditation-garden’ or better ‘the context of God experience’, is esthetically and artistically designed to offer a healthy atmosphere and conducive facilities for the spiritual formation and renewal programme. Since 1997, this institute has been conducting the long-term diploma course of nine-months and other short-term courses throughout the year, attended so far by over 5000 religious men and women from India and abroad.
