Notes and Events:

Stammbach is a municipality in the district of Hof in Bavaria in Germany.

The forest monastery is a dwelling place for monks, novices and ordinands. Guests who want to participate in the monastic life and are willing to adapt to the routine and discipline are welcome as the monastic community sees fit.

The monastery is not some kind of spiritual hostel or guesthouse, nor a retreat centre, a seminar centre or a temple serving a particular cultural purpose.

The name “Muttodaya” means Liberated Heart in Pali, the language of early Buddhism. It is a poetic expression of our goal that we are trying to reach. The monks follow the standards of the forest tradition as we can still find it in the Theravada countries (Sri Lanka, Thailand, Burma, Laos, Cambodia). It is not fixed on a specific lineage or a particular master. It should give an opportunity for those who are seriously interested in practising on the basis of the Dhamma-Vinaya.

It is a network of Youth that dreams to change India through the teachings of Buddha and Dr. B.R. Ambedkar into an Ideal society based on liberty, equality and fraternity.

We would like an Indian society to be based on mutual love and friendship so that everyone has a fair chance to grow and is valued as a fellow human being.

            If we overlook the revolution of the world we found youth contributed most.   We are dedicated to “Dhamma Revolution” in India.

            Revolutions are not born on the street they raise in your mind, r world need more living heroes and you are here just in time.

            NNBY responsible for the revolution in peaceful and democratic way without bloodshed.  We want to make India a Buddhist nation once again.

Tracking the trail after 6years of organization:

It was year 2006, the 50th anniversary year of the great conversion by Dr. Ambedkar, we started our work. It was December of 2006, an excellent youth retreat was being lead by Dhammachari Subhuti. Amongst the participants of this youth retreat, an inspired young men and women’s group started to come together and in a year’s time they created the National Network of Buddhist youth.

History of last six years: It’s now six years, we are persistently trying to do our best to remain together and grow as human beings together. We struggled to do our best, raise money, organize programs, form teams, support individuals and so on. We organized National gatherings every year. We brought together youth from many different regions of India, and from all the economic backgrounds. 

We lead hundreds of one or two day’s trainings for the development of basic life skills for youth. Many benefited and are still benefiting. We trained at least a dozen young men and women who are presently conducting trainings, they come together often to help improve the quality of their trainings and support each other.

The structure of the system: Beginner – any one visiting or attending our program is known as beginner. We welcome youth from all walks of life to participate in our gatherings. They are encouraged to learn what they can. We extend our hand to them for friendship and keep an open invitation to keep engaging with us for their own benefit.

Activists – when beginners show more interest in NNBY and start helping in our activities, organize 000events in their area, we initiate them as activists, we offer tem trainings in basic Buddhist teachings and practices, understanding the message of Dr. ambedkar and various modules are offered for their personal improvements.

Leader – When activists wants to deepen their learning and wants to learn through mentoring individuals, leading groups, creating and offering their own trainings we initiate them as leaders. Leaders need to go through a raining to be effective leaders; this training is for minimum two years.

Cadre – Cadre is an Ideal member of the Network, any leader aspiring to be cadre needs to go much tougher trainings, intensify his commitment to social transformation through the practice of Buddhism and understanding of Dr. Ambedkar’s vision. He/she would be able to work in tougher conditions and are able to lead on a large scale. Cadres are expected to continuously working on their own development and work in close connection with other Cadres.

International Associations: We are constantly connected with youth and youth organizations from other countries, East and West.  We draw in various techniques, learning, methods of working with youth from Buddhist and various non Buddhist organizations who are working for the development of human values and welfare. We are also coordinating with various international organizations to create an international network for the learning and exchange of Buddhist Youth.

Small initiatives to take responsibilities in society: Running of the network itself is a large activity that benefit couple of thousand youth every year directly.  Our members are also engaged in various smallish activities to help youth in various areas. We support youth to find appropriate professional courses, to resolve their emotional, psychological conflicts. We actively work to pass on information to youth that are not easily accessible for the employment opportunities and better options for higher education.

Notes and Events:

We offer you an opportunity to read and learn about Buddhism in the Theravada tradition. Theravada (Pali: Thera=elders, vada=doctrine) or the "doctrine of the elders" represents the school of Buddhism that draws spiritual inspiration from the Pali Canon (or "Tripitaka") generally accepted by scholars as the oldest record of Buddha's teachings.

Imparting knowledge with a view toward developing and improving another's knowledge is Dhammadana in Buddhist terminology. The Buddha teaches us to appreciate the value of wisdom since it is the most valuable asset for a living being: hence, the need for us to develop our minds, as well as to help others to develop their knowledge.

There are two ways to achieve this end. One is by reading extensively on Buddha Dhamma. The other is by questioning that may invariably lead to discussion. It shall be our   endeavour to provide satisfactory answers to such queries.

Tavor and provides training for people who are interested in learning about and practicing vipassana meditation. The center is open to new and experienced practitioners all year round.

The Newman Society was founded to promote Dharma in Israel by means of the establishment and maintenance of a Buddhist Center for the practice and teaching of vipassana meditation, under the guidance of the venerable Ajarn Tong Sirimangalo (one of the best known teachers in Thailand) for as many practitioners as possible. Ajarn Ofer Adi,an Israeli monk and disciple of the venerable Ajarn Tong, is resident head monk and teacher at the Ein Dor center, devoting his time to guiding practitioners and teaching Buddhism. The society’s future aims include providing facilities and accommodation for monks and teachers from other Buddhist traditions. The Society operates in the same manner as the teaching of the practice at the center – on the basis of generosity and donation not for profit or benefit.

Phra Ofer Adi is a monk who been practicing vipassana meditation for 16 years at Wat Lampang Wat Chom Tong in Thailand under the instruction of Ven. Ajarn Tong Sirimangalo. Phra Ofer taught for several years in Israel before becoming a monk in Thailand 6 years ago followed by several years as monk and teacher at a Buddhist temple near Frankfurt Germany. He is currently head monk at the Ein Dor center teaching in Israel as well as various places in the world.


Nilambe Meditation Centre

Tradition: Theravada
Website: http://www.nilambe.org/
Notes and Events:

Contacting Nilambe in the new electronic ways is not always easy - we suggest that you come here and meet us! However, do try Upul on 0777-804 555;  Nalaka on 0777-811 653; or Pitigala on 0776-756 598. You may also want to try email:  info@nilambe.org (sometimes checked).

Getting there and away: The centre is easily reached by the Galaha/Deltota bus #633 from Kandy. It passes Nilambe Office Junction (about 17km). From there it is a steep walk through tea plantations to reach the centre. Alternatively, taxis or autorickshaws are available from Kandy. Advice can also be sought from the Buddhist Publication Society in Kandy. Autorickshaws are often available from the bottom of the office junction, at Nilambe, but the gate half way up the tea estate road is locked most of the time.

General info: Meditators stay from one night to several years, and the centre can help long term meditators with visa extensions. Accommodation at the centre is in single or shared rooms. The centre has no electricity supply, and conditions are adequate but basic. Although this is a lay centre, often there are members of the Sangha undertaking personal retreats at Nilambe. The centre charges 400 Sri Lankan rupees per day (about GBP 2.15 sterling, USD 3.90 at June 2004 rates) to foreigners to cover accommodation and food. Sri Lankans may offer donations instead. The majority of resident meditators are westerners, but many Sri Lankans also use the centre (particularly around Poya days). Teaching is also available in English and Sinhala by the resident teacher, Upul. There is a good library of books and tapes in English and Sinhala. Make sure that you bring a flashlight (no electricity), an umbrella and warm clothes (cold at night). The centre provides bedsheets and pillows et cetera.
