The entire facility, called Miyo Samten Ling (Center of Unwavering Meditation) by H.H. the Dalai Lama, will be an ecological village with organic gardens and orchards. Crops will be watered from a water well in the property, and the cabins will be powered with solar energy.
The main house, with its thirteen rooms, will serve as an administrative headquarters. There, resident contemplatives will meet regularly to share their experiences, and receive collective guidance from the resident instructors. Scientists will use a scientific laboratory to be created in the premises.
This building will also provide accommodations for staff, visiting scientists and teachers. A limited number of rooms will also be made available for guests to engage in their own personal meditation retreats, for relatively brief periods.
