The center has a library and meditation room. HYI is affiliated with Kopan Monastery, north of Boudha, where it offers seven to ten-day meditation courses during the autumn and spring.

It also conducts one-day courses in Buddhism and two-day meditation workshops at its premises next door to Hotel Ganesh Himal, about 200m south and then west of Chhetrapati Chowk, overnight retreats at Nagarkot, and five-day residential courses in Patan.
