Inviting dhammaduta monks to join in strengthening the Buddhasasana in Germany
Posted on 3. Juli 2013

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. Spreading the Dhamma in a foreign country is a great challenge, thus

we need you to

have sufficient fluency in English in order to communicate and teach Dhamma-Vinaya

be interested to learn the German language and explore the German culture

give rise in saddha to people by being an inspiring bhikkhu living on pindapata and without money

help to share the responsibility for our newly founded Sariputta Institute and to dedicate yourself to teaching and promoting Buddhist knowledge and Suttanta (pariyatti)

plan to stay a minimum of one year.

We offer you to

cover all your expenses in Germany, incl. flight to Germany, health care, study materials, clothing, transportation etc., and assist you with the application for a national visa

participate in a German language course soon after your arrival

have sufficient time for your own studies and practice

If you are interested to help us introduce the path of liberation to the people of Germany, please contact us!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
