Global Vipassana Center

Since the past few days my thoughts have been wandering and sometimes to the extreme, at such times the one thing that i look forward to is "Peace". The learned one's say that Peace lies within and today I'm going to take you to a place which helps you in finding that inner peace.

The Global Vipassana Pagoda at Gorai, Mumbai

The magnificent pagoda stands tall at 320ft approximately


The dome is probably world's largest stone built dome


I've seen this structure so many times but it still amazes me every time


It's all a matter of Faith!


The Vipassana center offers various in-house meditation courses and as far as I know all of them are offered at free of cost.

I'm sharing this with my friends at My World Tuesday

This looks awe inspiring!
I like the way the roof seems to be floating just above the tree line (or at least that is how it looks in your photo).
