Inviting dhammaduta monks to join in strengthening the Buddhasasana in Germany
Here at Bodhi Vihara Monastery in the town of Freising near Munich in the south east of Germany, we have been working since autumn 2008 to develop a place for Buddhist living and learning.
In February 2009 we opened up Bodhi Vihara, a small temple located in a very traditional and old town with a strong Catholic background. Since then our lay community of both native Germans and people of international decent (Thai, Sri Lankan, Myanmar, Chinese etc.) has continued to grow and several projects have been started, among them the Sariputta Institute, Arogya Sangha health fund, Sumitta neighbor aid and Buddhasasana magazine.
Now we have come to the stage, that we hope to obtain reinforcement from dhammaduta monks for the further development of our community.
