About Dhamma Sukha
Dhamma Sukha vipassana center is a big step forward towards realizing Goenkaji’s vision of starting a vipassana center that will cater to the San Antonio, Austin, and Houston areas.
32-acre land in the rural part of Central Texas is purchased to build a new Vipassana Center “Dhamma Sukha”. It is centrally and conveniently located, about 1.5 hours from Houston and Austin and 2.5 hours from San Antonio.
The scenic and secluded new acreage is a perfectly serene and quiet place for meditation.
A team of architects, engineers and reputed construction contractors is working to develop the Center in three phases.
Master Plan of the design is available here:
- Large meditation hall that can accommodate 120 students
- Two dorms with 20 rooms each with attached bathrooms
- Separate walking path for male and female
- Dining hall to accommodate 80-90 students
- 2000 sq ft state of the art home that will be used to house the teachers and servers during the course
Dhamma Sukha will start conducting residential courses immediately after the construction is done. One day courses will be arranged even before that, as and when possible.
The property is centrally located, about 1.5 hours from Houston and Austin and 2.5 hours from San Antonio, on 7819 Red Bird Road, New Ulm, TX 78950.
The CTVA trust committee has a phase development approach towards a center with the capacity to hold courses for up to 150 students. The first phase of construction would initially support smaller 10-Day courses for up to 50 students in the next one to two years,
