Dhamma Kańcana

Notes and Events:

Dhamma Kañcana, meaning ‘Gold of Dhamma’ , is located in Kanchanaburi Province,

approximately 300 kilometres west of Bangkok and 60 kilometres from the Myanmar border.

Kanchanaburi is famous not only for its historical railway bridge built the River Kwai built by

prisoners of war during World War II but also for its picturesque landscape of hills, waterfalls and

rivers.

Donated by old students, Dhamma Kañcana is situated at the foot of a hill surrounded by a

sparse forest and close to a vast water reservoir behind the Vajiralongkorn Dam. The weather is

generally pleasant all year long: warm in summer, fresh during the rainy season from June to

October, and rather cold from November to February. Both the weather and the natural

environment make the site an ideal place for meditation.

The Centre is under construction. The meditation hall, the teacher’s residence and the kitchen

have been almost complete. The construction of a male residential building has just begun.

Dhamma Kañcana is expected to be ready in 2007, when ten-day, twenty-day and thirty-day

courses will be regularly offered.

Introduction to Dhammakaya Meditation

About five hundred years after the Great Decease of Lord Buddha, there remained no evidence of the Dhammakaya meditation technique. After devoted practice, the Venerable Chao Khun Phra Mongkol-Thepmuni restored the principles of Dhammakaya meditation and taught them. Today the approach has become well-known once again.

The Venerable Chao Khun Phra Mongkol-Thepmuni once said that Dhammakaya meditation would be known all over the country, primarily because it penetrates right to the heart of the practice of purification. Defilements such as greed, hatred, delusion, conceit, wrongview, doubt, sloth, restlessness, shamelessness, and lack of moral dread are uprooted naturally and effectively. Avijja or ignorance becomes Vijja or knowledge.

Dhammakaya meditation is not a new practice, as many believe. It is the original Buddha-Teaching. Dhammakaya meditation is the exact path that the Buddha practiced. It is cited many times in the Tipitaka (Buddhist Canon), and directly follows the Noble Eightfold Path which is classified into the three categories of Sila or morality, Samatha or Right Concentration, and Vipassana or Right Wisdom. In combination with the four Satipatthana or Foundations of Mindfulness, the Samatha (concentration) and Vipassana (insight) will advance to Right Wisdom pertaining to the Sankhara or compounds and Visankhara or non-compounds. The Right Wisdom of the Four Noble Truths will be unfolded. Nirvana or freedom from all conditioning and suffering will, thus, be attained.

Without Lord Buddha, this teaching would never have been known and practiced. Without the Venerable Phra Mongkol-Thepmuni, Dhammakaya meditation would never have been well known again. Various benefits will be gained even at the beginning of Dhammakaya meditation practice.

This is for all who seek to understand reality or the true meaning of life as well as those who seek inner purification. Wisdom and virtue develop hand-in-hand. As the meditator progresses beyond the distortions of the passions, insight sharpens and understanding deepens.

Dhammakaya Meditation does not require blind faith. You do not have to believe in Buddhism to benefit from it. It is a method for training the mind to become concentrated and keenly aware, focused inward at the center of the body. With practice, you will encounter new experiences for yourself and will develop confidence.

In 1916, Luang Phor Sodh Candasaro (Chao Khun Phra Mongkol-Thepmuni) rediscovered the Dhammakaya approach to meditation which had been lost sometime during the first five hundred years following the passing away of Lord Buddha. The technique leads the meditator directly along the path to enlightenment and emancipation by combining concentration (Samatha) and insight (Vipassana) meditation techniques. It is, thus, extremely focused and effective.

Dhammakaya Meditation practice has become popular and widespread throughout Thailand. This is intended to make the method more widely available to English speakers.

Meditation begins with turning the powers of observation and awareness inward. We are accustomed to perceiving the outside world, but introspection requires special effort. Steeped in science, we have prided ourselves on “objectivity” while remaining largely unaware of inner biases.

Traditional scientific objectivity required isolation from the object observed. Since quantum mechanics was introduced, science has recognized that we are part of the world we perceive and what we see depends on how we look at it. Meditation is like polishing a lens to enable us to see more clearly. Skill in meditation develops the ability to perceive experience directly without the distortions implicit in conceptualization.

Many seekers turn to meditation because of dissatisfaction with life. This is the universally experienced sadness / suffering / tension (Dukkha) on which Lord Buddha based the Four Noble Truths. But, this motivation to ease tensions or cope with anxieties is only a starting point. Many meditation techniques will provide relief on this worldly level, but the beauty of Dhammakaya Meditation is that it leads directly upwards from this plane to more and more refined, purer and purer levels of awareness.

The effectiveness of the Dhammakaya Meditation derives from focusing attention at the center of the body and combining three meditation techniques simultaneously. Meditators often debate the efficacy of concentration (Samatha) versus insight (Vipassana). Dhammakaya Meditation employs elements of both. Higher and higher levels of concentration enable personal insight to progress from a more worldly view to Right Understanding and ultimately to Supra-mundane Right Wisdom.

Notes and Events:

The main purpose of ordaining is to free yourself from worldly commitments and worries so that you may have the opportunity to fully commit yourself to meditation and break away from the shackles of desire so that you may find true happiness.

Monks manage to free themselves from worldly desire by fulfilling the daily routine required of them by the tenets laid down by the Lord Buddha. In this case, the word ‘duty’ (kicavatra) is a compound made up of two words: ‘kica’ and ‘vatra’.

‘Kica’ means duties that are so important that they are considered compulsory. ‘Vatra’ means things that are advisable do, although not required. If you choose not do these latter, the consequences may not be disastrous – they do not break the monastic discipline – but they could result in the lessening of respect by those who support the monks out of faith. However, if you comply with these activities, the level of respect accorded on you will only improve and strengthen. These items of daily routine will also help to free you from worldly desire.

Notes and Events:

The College of Religious Studies, Mahidol University, was founded in 1999 and is located at the Namthong Building, just opposite the Faculty of Veterinary Science at Salaya, Nakhorn Prathom, Thailand.

The College is dedicated to the study and research in the field of religious studies
and fosters mutual understanding, cooperation, and respect among people of different religious traditions both in Thailand and throughout the world, so that common concerns might be creatively addressed. In teaching and research, the College also strives to nurture global ethical values and promote peace and human well-being.

The 21st Century has come with all its promise and potential.
Southeast Asia and the rest of the world are entering a new and challenging historical stage. Accordingly the College has designed its program to meet these challenges.

Continuing in its mission,
the College advances the academic study of religion among members of the monastic and lay communities with special emphasis on Buddhism. Its academic programs address emerging issues that are new challenges to religion such as those which concern globalization, women’s rights, new scientific discoveries, and the use of modern technology in medicine. Other dimensions of the programs include training students in modern languages, computer, and critical thinking, along with religious studies, to enable them to live meaningfully in the globalized world.

The College of Religious Studies is currently offering Bachelor\\\'s and post graduate degrees
to produce competent teachers and scholars of religion as well as chaplains/ counselors to serve modern needs of Thailand and the wider global community.

Job Opportunities
In a globalized world the broad inter-cultural studies of our students prepares them for careers in multicultural settings such as government and multinational corporations.  Many of our graduates go on to study in such areas as law, education, management, psychology, political science etc, and then move on to careers in academics, law, counseling, media, banking, teaching, the airline industry etc.

For the graduate monks, they often go on to hold high positions within the Thai sangha serving as abbots, temple administrators, heads of meditation centers and as missionaries in many parts of the world.
