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.
