Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre (MIMC, Leh, Ladakh, is a non-governmental, non-sectarian, non-profit-making, socially-engaged Buddhist charitable organization established in 1986, on a 250-acre stretch of barren cold desert land 10 kilometers from Leh.

Mahabodhi campus is currently home to several hundreds of people, including aged citizens, visually-impaired children, monks, nuns, meditators, volunteers, and school children. Over the past 30 years we have managed, but not without considerable effort and perseverance, to transform this barren piece of land into a heaven-like oasis, with greenery and the most incredible people. 

Quite rightly, the campus of MIMC is today known as "Devachan" (Abode of the Divine). Through the course 30 years, thousands of people of all ages, have directly and indirectly benefits from the various services offered at the Mahabodhi Devachan campus. MIMC's singular and compassionate vision is to serve the deprived and disadvantaged people of Ladakh- one of the most remote and environmentally challenging regions in the world. Besides these social and humanitarian services, MIMC has also been proactively involved in peace-Building and culture preservation programs through inter-faith conferences and dialogues at the national and international level. MIMC at present is home for more than 1000 inhabitants.
