Bodhi Heart Sanctuary has always been a prime venue for Buddhist organizations from all Traditions, both private groups as well as societies, to conduct their study-cum-meditation retreats i.e., whole day program of mental cultivation. Our facilities are intended for activities of the Buddhist Fraternity - this is our strategy to engage, enrich and enlighten people on the noble and beautiful practices of Buddhism. Subsequently, we have conceived this program known as Yogis in Retreat Fund (YIR).
In this Program we have shaped the environment and our facilities to provide simple comfort and convenience, and most importantly - affordability to the Yogis and their organizations. Yes, your donation to YIR helps to defray their cost of meals, accommodation and utilities of these yogis and their organization during their pursuit for a taste of freedom. All contribution for this program will be collected under our Yogis in Retreat Fund. It is a fund that makes it possible for organizations and individuals to use our facilities at the lowest possible cost. In short, it is a fund to support Yogis in their quest for truth and freedom.
Our various Dharma go-forth activities which currently involves Dharma Guide for Tertiary Institutions (DG.4.TI), Dharma Guide for Young Adults (DG.4.YA), Dharma Guide for Dharma Groups (DG.4.DG) and Dharma Guide in Social Media (DG.4.SM) are our contributions to support Dhamma propagation at the domestic level.
