Meals at Buddha Pāda

Healthy and hygienic international meals can be prepared in the Buddha Pada kitchen for people who are attending courses at the Institute or staying on campus. All meals are vegetarian, but not vegan.

In order to avoid wastage of food, we only prepare enough food for guests who have booked their meals in advance. Meal bookings for individuals have to be made at least three hours in advance at our dining area. We cannot accommodate individual food preferences and/or requirements.

Breakfast is served at 7:30am, lunch at 12 noon and dinner at 6pm.

Free filtered water is available throughout the day on our campus. We encourage all guests to bring their own water bottle in order to reduce waste generated through plastic mineral water bottles.

Prayer and Teaching Halls

We have one prayer hall and 3 teaching halls, referred to as Dojo with capacities ranging between 50 to 400. We also have additional workshop and studio spaces for smaller groups.
