Where the white clouds whisper songs of Dhamma And rocks meditate on impermanence. This site awaits a great change from thick forest to a centre of mental culture.

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. ”
– Gautama Buddha

It is upon the aspiration of these words that Paramita Meditation Centre came to be.

Our vision is to provide a nurturing place for learning and self-discovery for all – hence the name – Paramita, which in Sanskrit, refers to the art and practice of cultivating universal values of generosity, virtue, patience, diligence, contemplation and wisdom in every aspect of life.

With the firm understanding that the mind is the forerunner of all things, Paramita offers a place of quiet solitude for those seeking a pause, clarity and purpose, away from their busy urban environment.

Set against a backdrop of verdant forests and rolling hills, our Centre is not only ideal for the practice of meditation and group retreats, but also for learning the authentic path the Buddha taught more than 2500 years ago.

Ultimately this practice is aimed at developing equanimity – to be able to bear witness to everything life brings.
