"Lege dingen maken een geluid, volle dingen zijn altijd stil." "De wijze hecht zich aan niets, niet aan het geziene, het gehoorde of het gevoelde." "De geest is de oorzaak van al het geluk en al het leed, om het lijden te verminderen is opmerkzaamheid nodig, elk moment."
Welcome to Dhammadipa
A place to practice awareness of body and mind
Dhammadipa is a vipassana meditation center in the Theravada tradition, following the line of Mahasi Sayadaw. The center offers:
- the opportunity to practice vipassana meditation;
- the opportunity to study the teaching of the Buddha (dhamma and abhidhamma) and
- related activities, such as special days revolving around specific themes, like for instance metta meditation, or the celebration of a Buddhist holiday.
Dhammadipa is an open sangha, or community of practitioners. Here, people in search of purpose and spirituality can learn about and familiarize themselves with the Buddhist path of development. For those already on this path, the center serves as a support to deepen insight and wisdom.
