I am looking for some kind of Buddhist society/group/organization in Mumbai, India, where we can meet similar like-minded people, attend cultural events, discuss/talk/teachings (dharma talk) on Buddhist ideas/concepts, etc. I am looking for Theravada Buddhism & not neo-Buddhism. Any kind of help is highly appreciated.

I know there's COVID situation going on but I just need to know if there's any, will attend when the situation becomes normal.

There are 9 listed here -- that search is filtering on "Mumbai" and "Theravada".


I just searched on Google and found the Global Vipassana Pagoda, Gorai, North-west of Mumbai.

This is their website: https://www.globalpagoda.org/

This is obviously a Buddhist organization associated with S.N. Goenka. It's his Vipassana movement, teaching Vipassana meditation based on the teachings of Sayagyi U Ba Khin.

Therefore, it's Theravada.

  • That's for meditation, which I do on a daily basis. And its 10-day course is hard to get short-listed & me being the only earning of the family I can't afford it either way. Jul 5, 2020 at 16:06
  • @VarunKrish Please see the question Is it fine to learn Vipassana meditation online?, especially the answer by Ven. Yuttadhammo.
