Nagaloka Centre is the home of the Nagarjuna Training Institute, which offers a one-year residential training program in Buddhism and Social Action for young men and women from all over India. The goal of the program is to train people in meditation, Dhamma and social action so they can return to their home regions and share their knowledge of the Dhamma and help create a society free of caste and discrimination.
The Buddhism and Social Action training program is a full-time residential course for 80 to 100 men and women. Students attend daily classes, participate in cultural activities, visit social projects in Nagpur, and learn meditation and Dhamma.
The Nagarjuna Training Institute is the only program of its kind in India. Students come from many different states and caste communities all over India to develop their skills, confidence and friendships. Having grown up in some of the most deprived and oppressed situations in the world, these young people often feel that the year of Dhamma practice and coursework completely transforms them and gives them a new vision of life. Many alumni are active in their communities, teaching the Dhamma and establishing social projects.
