In 2012 the ground in Ahba’s monastery was blessed for the construction of the Maha Bodhi Chedi (also called Bodhgaya Temple), a 1:1 replica of the temple in Bodhgaya where the Buddha attained enlightenment.

In this short video the western monk Ajahn Kalyano is speaking, himself a pupil of the well-known meditation teacher Ajahn Anan.

He describes how special it is that Ahba is having the temple built, but also that Ahba’s Pali school has been the number one in the country for years and that Ahba has been given the unique position of being both abbot of a Pali school and a meditation monastery.

In this way, Ahba combinbes the transference of knowledge with acquiring one’s own insight through meditation.

Over Buddho

Avatar Sinds 2017 werken we eraan om mensen de kans te geven om via het internet kennis te maken met samatha-meditatie op buddho, een meditatiesysteem dat ons veel goeds heeft gebracht. Naast het verspreiden van dit meditatiesysteem hopen we een waardevolle bijdrage te leveren aan de kennis over het boeddhisme en meditatie in Nederland. Hiervoor schrijven en vertalen we regelmatig teksten en plaatsen we andere inhoud die we van hoge kwaliteit achten of die direct gerelateerd is aan onze leraar Ahba.
