The Dhammakaya Tradition
Founded by the Great Abbot of Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen, Phramongkolthepmuni (background picture), the Dhammakaya Knowledge was passed on to Khun Yai Chand Khonnokyoong (center), who in turn imparted the Knowledge to Luang Por Dhammajayo (left) and Luang Por Dattajeevo (right), the current Abbot and Vice-Abbot of Wat Phra Dhammakaya (the Dhammakaya Temple), Thailand.

Changing the World One Person at a Time

The teachings of Luang Por Dhammajayo have inspired millions of people around the world to perform good deeds and to cultivate their minds through meditation.  His campaigns for social reform have motivated thousands of people to give up smoking, drinking, gambling and other forms of vice.  His innovative teaching methods and communication skills have made Buddhism more visible and accessible to the general public than anyone in history. Today, Wat Phra Dhammakaya that he cofounded has become the world’s largest Buddhist temple with hundreds of centers around the world.  His home country Thailand is now the world’s center for Buddhism.

This website takes you into the life and achievements of Luang Por Dhammajayo and the Dhammakaya Knowledge, a profound meditation method that he teaches.
