Dhammakaya Activities

Buddhist Tradition: World Peace through Inner Peace

In nearly half a century history of the Wat Phra Dhammakaya has never wavered from its mission to create world peace through inner peace by promoting the Buddha’s method of meditation and teachings that have changed the world since 2558 years ago. The ultimate aim of all activities organized by the temple is to bring peace to the minds of individuals, to the Thai society, and to the world that we all share.

The goal was to make the temple a meditation-learning center for monks, novices, and peace-loving people of all ages, nationalities and races.  Back then, the questions were: ‘why is it that the majority of people who come to the temple – any temple – are old people when the Buddha’s teachings are applicable for people of every age and are best learned when they are young?,’ ‘Have people lost interest in temples or have temples ceased to be interesting?,’ and ‘How can we encourage and inspire people to learn Dhamma?

During its first 30 years, we concentrated on building a strong foundation of activities and different projects within the temple. Later, we expanded the scope of these activities in cooperation with many other Buddhist organizations, non-governmental organizations, and educational institutions. Below are the examples of such activities.
