Buddhist Hermitage Lunas was founded by the late Venerable Acara Suvanno Mahā Thero (1920 – 2007) following the Theravada Buddhist tradition as a centre to teach meditation to both monastics and lay people. Located at a former sand farm next to the Kulim river, the hermitage covers an area of 0.64 hectares / 1.58 acres. The nearest town – Lunas, in the state of Kedah, is one kilometer away from the hermitage.

BHL was officially opened by the late Venerable Dr. K. Sri Dhammananda Nayaka Mahā Thero (1918 – 2006) (formerly Chief High Priest of Malaysia and Singapore) and Venerable Sayādaw U Panditabhivamsa of Myanmar on 25th December 1990.
As a meditation centre, the hermitage focuses on teaching vipassanā / insight meditation as envisaged by the late Most Venerable Mahāsī Sayādaw U Sobhana Mahā Thero.
