You can visit Ārāma Karunā Sevena solely for the purpose of getting to know and practicing Buddha’s teaching, developing your meditation practice and spiritual growth. Last but not least, there is the opportunity to meet and talk to bhikkhunī Visuddhi and obtain a direct mediation of the Buddha’s teaching through a representative and a member of the Saṅgha. Every single meeting with bhikkhunī Visuddhi must be announced and planned ahead.
To be accepted to stay in Ārāma Karuṇā Sevena, one must first take at least a weekend meditation course led by the venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi. This course is prepared as an introduction to meditation with the opportunity to discuss practice and conversations with the venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi.
Prior to a meditation seclusion everybody has to be familiar with the Terms and Conditions of stay in Ārāma Karuṇā Sevena and the Daily Schedule in the Ārāma Karuṇā Sevena, and make a commitment to keeping the rules.
The stays are time-limited, you can attend a meditation retreat twice a year at the
maximum of 10 days. This applies to both - nuns and lay practitioners.
After completing a weekend meditation course for beginners and after approving from venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi, you will be able to go to the monastery (Ārāma Karuṇā Sevena) regularly and on your own, without an officially announced course.
Each stay is decided by the committee of the Karuna Sevena Association after discussion with bhikkhunī Visuddhi.
