    Corona Virus Update

    Given the present circumstances prevailing due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the near forseeable uncertainties, all courses till April 15 at Dhamma Thali and Dhamma Nilaya have been cancelled; also applications received for the 2nd half of April courses for Dhamma Thali and Dhamma Nilaya are being kept pending. As of now, we feel we will have a clearer picture by mid-April and only then will begin to process applications for such courses.

    In case of any queries, pls be in touch with +91-9610401401.

    for Dhamma Thali,
