Response to the allegation of not having respect for the Lord Buddha

Wat Phra Dhammakaya is accused of not having respect for the Lord Buddha and considers itself superior to the Lord Buddha. This accusation is completely baseless. In fact, to commence and conclude every ceremony at Wat Phra Dhammakaya, the entire congregation pays homage to the Triple Gem, having the Lord Buddha as the principal of the three, and the chanting of these words: “Araham Samma Sambuddho…” the chant that upholds the Lord Buddha. The temple teaches all its followers to venerate and have utmost respect for the Triple Gem, and aspire to be like the Lord Buddha.
