Mahabodhi Padmaloka Girls Hostel, Chandigarh
gurujiChandigarh is an educational hub, where many of the educational institutions and colleges provide a wide range of subjects, offering students a diverse choice of curriculum to choose from for their studies. Ven. Sanghasena always had a wish to unbolt avenues for the needy children to receive the most needed education in their lives. He yearned to provide a good education for the deserving students in a conducive atmosphere where the all-round holistic development of the students are taken care of. The Mahabodhi Padmaloka Girls Hostel in Chandigarh is essentially an extension of the Mahabodhi Education Programme at MIMC Leh, which endeavors to make higher education accessible to students who dream high but lag behind due to financial constraints and lack of information and educational facilities.

There are thousands of Ladakhi students studying in various colleges and schools in Chandigarh city however no hostel facilities exist to accommodate these Ladakhi students. As a result they either have to hire rented rooms or stay with the local residents as paying guests. The expenditure involved in either of the types of accommodation is far too high for an average Ladakhi family to adequately manage in many cases. Thus, the MIMC established the Mahabodhi Padmaloka Girls Hostel on the outskirts of Chandigarh city to pursue their education without difficulties and problems, which was a pioneering endeavor of its kind.

guruji Outside Ladakh, many students feel cut off from their cultural and spiritual heritage, causing them to feel displaced and cast adrift from their valuable roots and familiar support networks. It is with this experience and understanding that MIMC has also establish a Meditation and Yoga complex alongside the hostel, enabling the possibility to impart holistic, spiritual and value-based education alongside the more traditional curriculum subjects to the inmates. It will serve as a vital source or nucleus to facilitate both spiritual and secular education in this most challenging of times, bringing together and bonding a strong sense of shared community and values for the future – an undertaking of inconceivable merit for all those involved, both directly and indirectly

It also helps to provide a spiritual focus for the local residents of Chandigarh city and surrounding areas who are also inspired to follow the Buddha’s teachings.
