Description:

Sathira-Dhammasthan, founded in 1987, is a learning community for peace and harmony, providing a variety of programs for people of all ages, genders, and walks of life. It is set in nine acres of trees, with lotus ponds, winding paths and meditative nooks. It is a tiny drop of water, radiating peace and serenity amidst the busy and bustling city of Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand.

Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee Sthirasuta is a Buddhist nun and the founder of Sathira-Dhammasathan, in Bangkok. The Center, under Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee leadership, believes that Dhamma is sacred, when it can be applied in the normal way of living. We also believe that every human being has the potential to live a life that is free from suffering. We believe that people can be different and that difference should be respected and accepted.

In all her work, Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee uses Dhamma to bring peace, harmony, respect, and an open heart, without discrimination or bias, into the chaotic world of high-power meetings.
