Our Campus

Dhyanavana has a campus of three acres of land and is in the greener sectors of the city of Mysore. On the campus there are three main blocks, namely, the administrative block for the residential staff and administration functions, at the entrance, the chapel at the centre, and finally the compact residential block for the participants. There are besides, separate quarters for the auxiliary staff.

In the beautifully designed octagonal chapel at the centre dwells the Sadguru (the Divine Master) whose darshan participants seek before undertaking programmes. Daily they sit at His feet seeking direction and enlightenment in the quiet prayerful divine milieu of the “meditation-garden”. In the residential block there are 35 well-furnished self-contained double rooms, 6 single rooms, a lecture hall, library, kitchen, dining hall and spaces for other requirements. Besides, there is also a playground. The whole campus is eco-friendly, luxuriant with garden greenery with many birds nesting and select trees of fruits and flowers, intended to create an experience of nature contact.

Apart from the residential staff, Dhyanavana can provide accommodation for 70 persons in self-contained and adequately furnished double rooms and 6 persons in self-contained and well-furnished single rooms. Besides the course, the participants will be provided with board, lodge, refreshments, ordinary medical first aid, recreational facilities and all that is needed to build up a good and effective community such as clean and safe surrounding, well planned garbage sorting, a laundry etc. It always promotes and favours interface and community bonding required of the committed disciples of Jesus, to be of one heart and one mind, in spite of all cultural, linguistic, ethnic differences.
