Dhamma Torana

  • Egbert, Ontario, Canada

About This Center

One of over 120 international centers where the technique of Vipassana meditation is taught and practiced, Dhamma Torana is situated on over 140 acres of beautiful woods, open spaces and ravines. Dhamma Torana (Auspicious Gateway of Dhamma) is aptly named. The nearest major city, Toronto, Ontario has been recognized by the United Nations as the most diverse city in the world, with more cultures and religions represented there than anywhere else. Goenkaji saw a Vipassana Centre amid this diversity as a passageway for Dhamma to spread to the world, and so the centre's name was born.

The surrounding countryside is mostly agricultural, but a number of small towns (Alliston & Cookstown) and the city of Barrie are nearby.
