A Monk From Leh, Created a Whole New Trend For Spirituality



Ladakh has been in the bucket list of almost all travellers for various reasons. Ladakh’s beauty is unconventional. Most residents in and around Leh are followers of the Buddhist faith. The region has many monasteries to its credit that date back few centuries and are located on hilltops. Venerable Bhikkhu Sanghasena founded Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre and established his way from ground of guns to a platform build with peace to mark the presence of Buddhism as a religion. MIMC aims to revive the heritage of the Himalayas and be a source of truer enlightenment for people from all corners of the globe to garner the inner peace in one and all, to have humanistic, scientific, rational and non-sectarian principles contained in the Buddha’s teaching based on right understanding and the right way.

Venerable Bhikku Sanghasena

MIMC has been a widely famous centre for promoting peace and awareness of nature. It has been titled as the centre for sharing experiences and delightful views. Here at MIMC we aim to create a totally unique approach to community living. MIMC can be a heart for the needy from every corner of the world. It welcomes all religions.


A visit to Ladakh definitely deserves a visit to Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre. The practice of Buddha’s teachings in everyday lives and welcoming everyone with no inequality irrespective of anything is seen to be necessary in today’s world where humans are not viewed indifferently. Dedicating time on physical and mental wellbeing along with social harmony and world peace in the busy lives does not seem possible else ways. Here at MIMC, it is a whole different experience of travelling along with monks and other fellows working towards it through meditations and social works.

An amalgamation of prosperity, medical facilities, availability of schools and colleges, hygienic service of food and beverages at an affordable price, and a lot more is here to make a tourist feel like home. The main highlight of the place is its peaceful environment and power of meditation.
