деревня Большие Коты
Иркутская область

Центр випассаны Dhammapadipa открыт в деревне Большие Коты на берегу Байкала. Мы принимаем учеников летом, когда можно медитировать, не отвлекаясь на холод.

Метод медитации - Сатипаттхана Випассана, медитация прозрения, базирующаяся на четырех основах осознанности:

осознанность тела
осознанность ощущений
осознанность ума
осознанность объектов ума

Медитация состоит из одинаковых промежутков ходьбы и сидения с осознаванием и умственной фиксацией внешних и внутренних явлений. В методе уделяется особое внимание равитию концентрации от момента к моменту в паре с осознанностью. Ежедневно медитатор получает новые инструкции от учителя. Предполагается, что медитатор серьезно практикует и четко следует инструкциям учителя, не смешивая випассану с другими техниками. Это довольно интенсивная и сложная практика.

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.

Buddha Bodhivana Monastery is a branch monastery of the late Phra Bodhinyana Thera (Venerable Ajahn Chah b.1918  d.1992), the well-known and respected north-east Thai Meditation Master. Venerable Ajahn Kalyano is the Abbot of the monastery and resident teacher.

Buddha Bodhivana Monastery is primarily a training monastery for Buddhist monks (bhikkhus), novices (samaneras) and postulants (anagarikas), but it also provides a supportive environment in which individuals, families, visitors and residents are given the opportunity to be in contact with the principles of the Buddha’s teachings and to cultivate those same qualities in their own lives. The monastery is a place to study, practice and cultivate the central elements of the Buddha’s Path: generosity, virtue, mental cultivation, wisdom, and compassion.

The Temple of the Victory of Truth

Dharma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara was founded on April 20, 1980. The main support for the Vihara came from a group of Sri Lankan Buddhists. Since its inception, the Vihara has been maintained by Sri Lankan, other Asian and Western Buddhists, plus non-Buddhist friends of diverse national and cultural backgrounds. Local American and Asian communities continue to support the Vihara. Venerable monks from Sri Lanka conduct the day-to-day activities and render guidance for those seeking the services of the Vihara.

Dharma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara promotes the Theravada tradition of Buddhism found primarily in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. The Theravada tradition is the oldest and most authentic version of the Buddha’s teachings now surviving. It preserves intact the original doctrines and practices taught by the Buddha 2600 years ago.
