The centre, surrounded by lush forest and sitting atop the Lal Pahad (red hill) provides an atmosphere of solitude ideal for meditation. It can also lay claim to one of the tallest statues of Buddha in the area. Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind.
Parshuram Kund- This holy kund is situated within the Kamlang Reserve Forest area and is surrounded by dense forest of Ruddhraksha trees which is considered sacred to Hindus. It is a sacred place where according to Kalika Purana, Srimat Bhagawata and the Mahabharata, sage Parashuram (one of Lord Vishnu’s incarnations) took a dip in the waters of Lohit at Brahma Kund to cleanse his sin (he had killed his mother on the instruction of his father). Every year on Makar Sankranti (first day of the month Magh) thousands of pilgrims converge here to take a dip in the water to wash away their sins. A fair (mela) is held during this period.
