About Subud Puebla

At the New York World Congress in 1963 Bapak recommended that each Subud group should have its own house where members could do latihan. This inspired Subud members in Puebla, Mexico and with the help of a designer, engineers, and plans for the necessary labour, the house was built in only 45 days. On the 15th of April 1964, during the first Subud National Congress in Mexico, the house was inaugurated. This was to be the first Subud house in the Americas and the third in the world. The house has two latihan rooms at either end, one for women and one for men. In the front there is space for meeting with a small dining-room and kitchen. Puebla, Mexico is a city of 1.3 million people located about 2 hours from Mexico City.

 

It was established by the Spanish in 1531 on the main route between the port of Veracruz and Mexico City, and was the principal city of colonial Mexico. Puebla's appearance is the most European of all the colonial cities, because it was planned from the ground up by a Spanish city designer rather than being built within an existing indigenous community. Puebla is known for its textiles, exquisitely decorated pottery and tiles, and for the architectural beauty of its buildings. Although modern Puebla is highly industrialized, the historic downtown remains a Spanish-colonial treasure filled with elegant 17th and 18th century European architecture and art.
