One can locate this place in McLeodganj and was established in 1972 to cater to a surge in demand by westerners who wish to learn more about the Buddhism. Collaboration between Zopa Lama and Yeshe Lama and some western students led to the birth of this centre at a house in Dharamkot. It was first known as the Tushita Retreat Centre and then as the Tushita Meditation Centre. Since the establishment of the institute there had been no looking back and true to what the name means, it’s a place of joy and learning about the tenets of Buddhism.

One of the most quietest of all the places where even the dogs don't bark and everyone talks in whispers for the voices echo. Situated on a very small hill it's both a centre and a tourist spot. One can join courses here and also simply visit. The view of His Holiness's home is directly visible through Tushita.
