Hi guys,

I’m going to Bodhgaya tomorrow (6th of January) and I am interested in taking a meditation course for three weeks or something like that.

Does anyone have any experience and tips for good places in Bodhgaya to both get better at meditation and experience the life at a monastry?

I am grateful for every answer I can get!

The monasteries at Bodhgaya are representative ones, not meditation monasteries per se. Occasionally outside teachers come to Bodhgaya to give meditation courses, but there are none scheduled right now that I am aware of. The best course center for your purpose has a course running at the moment, and you cannot join it late. The good news for you is that you can take that exact same course back home in Europe. You are not saying in your profile, what nationality you are, so you have to find out yourself which is the closest center. Another option is to go to a center in India, where such a course is happening while you are staying in India (if you stay longer than your present 3 weeks).

On the Tibetan side, which has less to do with meditation, but with cultural-religious teachings, the Dalai Lama is at the moment teaching in BG, which incidentally means you might have a hard time to find a room, as Bodhgaya will be visited by masses of Tibetans, most of whom stay in their own tent city though. Good luck with that. You might need to reconsider your plans... or just dive in and see what opens up for you.

There is a nice Japanese movie on the subject of switched at birth and the Nature vs. Nurture debate showcasing parent-child relationships in contemporary Japan

child is raised is the main factor. Raising someone elses child in a loving way, as your own, will produce a similar child to how your own biological child would have turned out...
