Located 1,600 metres above sea level in La Alpujarra, the Centro de Retiro Budista Osel Ling focuses on practising meditation.
From the house you can see the snowy peak of the Mulhacén and the white villages of the Barranco de Poqueira, such as Capileira, Pampaneira and Bubión. This is the perfect place for Buddhists and for those who need to de-stress and to spend time away from their day-to-day lives, to take time to find themselves.
The air is pure, the silence is inspirational and the feeling of peace is all encompassing. The typical Buddhist statue that represents the enlightened mind of the Buddha is the symbol that represents the centre.
The centre offers individual retreat houses isolated in the mountains and it also organises intensive courses in meditation and Buddhist philosophy. There are regular classes offering assistance and guidance in meditation for those who need it.
It is the ideal retreat for those who are interested in meditation at all levels, especially for those who would like to go on a retreat for a longer period of time.
The Centro Osel Ling has been here for more than 25 years. It is affiliated to the FPMT (Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition).
