“If we know how to approach life mindfully, it will be easy for us to live a life of service. Buddhism is essentially about how to ease suffering” – Ven. Maechee Sansanee Sthirasuta, Founder of Sathira Dhamma Sathan and Savika Sikkhalaya
Sathira-Dhammasathan is a learning community for peace and harmony, a center where people of diverse backgrounds, ages, languages, races and religions come together. This is a community of all ages: infant, teenager, young adult (Generation Alpha), as well as parents and the elderly. A learning community where older generations pass their knowledge and experience on to the young, the new generation of the digital communication era.
The year 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of Sathira-Dhammasathan in serving people and society: 30 years of kindness, compassion and spirit of service.
