European Ordination Program

While many are searching for peace outside, we believe that world peace MUST begin from each and everyone of us. That is why we promote the use of meditation in order to help individuals cultivate peace from within.

Open to men of all ethnicities and backgrounds, the European Ordination Program provides the opportunity to learn about Buddhism and a monk's way of life. Taking part in the experience will aid in the cultivation of one's inner peace.

The Dhammakaya Foundation is a non-profit organisation, based on personal development, aiming to promote activities for the restoration of morality in individuals, families, societies, and the world.
