The Center, Kirpal Meditation & Ecological Center (KMEC) is set on an
orchard of ten acres surrounded by tropical forest and has an ocean
view from the house. The main purpose of KMEC is to provide a place
for those who seek quietude and a place to meditate.

We ourselves follow the practice of Surat Shadb Yoga - the yoga of
light and sound. Sant Kirpal Singh Ji died in 1974 and was a Master of
this science, and the Center honors his memory. Guests are welcome to
practice their own form of meditation and prayer. For those who
require yoga instruction, Yoga Oasis is just two miles from the

KMEC is situated a half mile from the Ocean on the eastern tip of the
Big Island of Hawaii, approximately seven miles from the small village
of Pahoa. The 10-acre ocean-view property is blessed with daytime 85°F
weather year-round, 65° F at night, with cool, fragrant trade winds,
and tropical flora, including old growth mangoes, nearby swimming,
surfing and snorkeling.

This property was once a papaya farm and is now newly planted with
bamboo, papaya, palms, banana and many other fruit trees. The
newly-constructed octagonal Balinese meditation pavilion is set among
shade-trees with an expansive view of the ocean. Natural wonders
include Volcanoes National Park (lava and crater viewing),
volcanically heated warm ponds and steam vents (as outdoor saunas) and
other wonders of the lush tropics. There are no snakes.

Kmec opened in the summer for pre-arranged seasonal meditation
retreats and private meditation-vacations on request, for initiates
and non-initiates alike. A local Satsang facilitator holds weekly
Satsang at KMEC whenever satsangis are in residence.



It is our sincere belief that Param Sant Kirpal Singh Ji has provided
this property not only for mine and for my family’s well being but
also for the benefit of all sincere seekers. KMEC has therefore been
formed under our stewardship. Those who come here, initiated or
uninitiated, are all welcome.

Satsangs are held under the guidance of Sant Rajinder Singh. The
strict principles of vegetarianism are followed and the environment is
free of all intoxicants.

KMEC is a place where the teachings of Sant Mat are practiced; where
retreatants can meditate, and where stories from the initiates of the
Living Masters of our time can be shared. Time may also be spent in
doing seva, with quiet and sweet remembrance of the Masters of Sant
Mat and of God.

This is a beautiful place near the ocean where the weary Soul can rest
from its entanglements with Mind. The primary goal being to
distinguish between the two.

We pray that the grace of the Masters, and in particular the Masters
of our own time, Hazur Baba Sawan Singh Ji, Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, Sant
Darshan Singh Ji and the Living Master, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji, bless
all who come here.



The nearest international airport is Hilo. Those who come for retreats
are expected to provide their own food and transportation. Any fruits
and vegetables grown at the Center can be shared. Communal cooking and
eating together is encouraged. The Pahoa and Hilo natural-food stores
cater to both vegans and vegetarians offering fresh produce and a
broad range of popular packaged foods and supplements. During the week
and on Sundays there are farmers’ markets where local
organically-grown fruits and vegetables are available.

Currently the Center's lodging is limited and subject to space
availability. Tenting is therefore encouraged until other facilities
can be constructed. For Initiates of Sant Mat the rate for
accommodation is $30 per person per day. All income is used for the
benefit of future retreatants and maintenance of the center. Maharaj
Ji has recommended KMEC to the Sangat. However, it is not an official
SOS retreat.

Seva is also welcome. When applying for accommodation, please let us
know if you have carpentry or gardening skills.



$30 per person per day to $160.00 per day ($800.00 for the week)for the entire facilities for up to six or seven people. Tenting is $20.00 per day (one or two people).

Credit Cards Accepted
