Dhamma Dullabha center is the only permanent Vipassana meditation center in Russia. The number of those wishing to take a course at the center increases over time and at the moment it is many times greater than the center's capabilities. Because of this, registration of any of the courses turns into a race against time, when every second counts, and all places are dismantled in less than one minute.
In such a situation, factors that have nothing to do with normal registration for a course, such as the quality of the Internet connection and the ability to quickly click on links, become an advantage. In addition, such a tight time frame causes a lot of tension among those wishing to register for the course, especially in cases when all efforts were in vain and it was not possible to get on the course in the end.
In order to give everyone an equal chance of getting on the course, at the Dhamma Dullabha center, registration for courses will be carried out using a random selection mechanism.
After the registration for the course opens, you will have a whole day in order to, at a convenient time for you, without haste, submit an application for the course. The day after the registration opens, the main list and the waiting list for the course will be filled with applications, selected at random from all submitted. The time of submission of the application will not matter.
All applications that are not included in the main list and the waiting list will be automatically canceled. However, in the future, as the applications are canceled from the course lists, even the canceled applications may be invited to be transferred to the course waiting list.
Also, if you apply for a course and does not get a place, then your next application for a future course will have a better chance of getting a place.
Please note that the random application scheme only works for the Dhamma Dullabha center, all other centers use the regular registration scheme, where places are allocated according to the order in which the applications are submitted to the registration system.
If you have questions, comments, suggestions regarding the course registration process and, in particular, the new registration scheme, we would be glad to hear your opinion. Please contact the registration committee at [email protected].
