Sat Chit Anand Buddhist Centre and Guest House


Look upon the rising sun: there God does live,
and gives his light, and gives his heat away,
and flowers and trees and beasts and men receive
comfort in morning, joy in the noonday.
And we are put on earth a little space,
that we may learn to bear the beams of love.
[William Blake]

Plettenberg Bay, originally christened Bahia Formosa (beautiful bay), is known as the jewel of the Garden Route. It is tranquil and charming, hospitable and special. It embraces one of the most glorious sweeps of coastal scenery in South Africa. Backdropped by the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountain ranges and protected on one side by Robbery nature reserve, the area is characterised by sweeping, unspoilt sandy beaches, unpolluted rivers and sea, a dramatic rocky peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries, and lush indigenous forests. It has an exceptional climate, and is the perfect destination for tourists and holiday makers. With such an abundance of nature on our doorstep, there is a host of outdoor activities to enjoy.

Sometimes you can see it, you can feel it ~ out of nowhere it will hit you,

like a sudden moment of magic ~ and you get a glimpse

of how deeply life is in love with itself.
