"Do not give way to heedlessness. Do not indulge in sensual pleasures. Only the heedful and meditative attain great happiness."
(Dhammapada 27 - Appamādavagga)
We are happy to be able to organize monthly Vipassana courses. Furthermore every first Friday each month there is an open meditation evening and Dhammatalk (in German). Also for special occasions we are organising small ceremonies.
At Most Venerable Phra Prom Mongkol Vi´s (Venerable Phra Ajarn Tong Sirimangalo) suggestion and with his blessings, the Buddhist teaching and the Vipassanā meditation (insight- or mindfulness meditation) is taught and promoted. Furthermore it is a place where nuns or postulants can practice Vipassanā meditation and tread the monastic Path.
The center has been named by Most Venerable Phra Prom Mongkol Vi (Venerable Phra Ajarn Tong Sirimangalo) as Dhammanikhom Vipassanā-Meditationszentrum.
Dhammanikhom describes a community of persons, who come together to live and practice the Dhamma together. It can be translated as a Dhamma community.
Dhamma is the Teaching of the Buddha.
Nikhom (= Thai) or Nigama (= Pali) means community, settlement, also meeting place, market or small town.
