Meditation and Science Center Facilities
Set on eleven acres and with a magniﬁcent view of the monastery’s main Prayer Hall, the center offers a community lounge, a digital media center, ﬁve classrooms for up to 125 students, four science labs, thirteen guest suites with bedroom, sitting room and attached bath, fifty guest rooms with attached bath, and a spacious dining hall with a modern institutional kitchen. All guest rooms are equipped with air conditioning, hot water heaters and a locking wardrobe, and classrooms are air-‐conditioned. During many months of the year, the center’s well-‐designed cross-‐ventilation makes air conditioning unnecessary.
Filtered and bottled water is made easily available to guests, and kitchen and cleaning staff are trained to maintain appropriate hygienic standards. A modern medical clinic with a resident doctor is located about 100 meters from the Meditation and Science Center and there is a western-‐style hospital a short drive away. Additionally, Men-‐Tsee Khang Tibetan Medical
Institute has a branch nearby.
To maintain a reflective and comfortable environment for all guests and in respect of monastery rules, smoking and the consumption of alcohol are prohibited within the walls of the meditation and science center and within the grounds of other monastery facilities.
