Czech Television documentary about Bhante Dhammadipa

Thank you Iva Tereza and her friends from Czech Television for a nice documentary film about Bhante Dhammadipa. The document can be viewed on the Czech Television website. The document is in Czech language.

We are sorry, the document about Bhante Dhammadipa cannot be watched outside the Czech Republic. This is due to the license terms for webcasting. We will write to the filmmakers, if they could enable playback for foreign viewers as well.

Bhante is teaching at Shanta Vana in Czech 8.28.-9.5.

Dear friends,

venerable Dhammadipa will have a meditation course in Shanta Vana, Czech Republic at the end of August 8.28. – 9.5. Venerable will lecture in Czech language.

For more information, please contact the course organizer – Theravada Buddhism:

We look forward to meeting you,

Metta

Statue of Maitreya Buddha from Hong Kong

Our dear friends from Hong Kong donated a beautiful wooden statue of Meitreya Buddha to Shanta Vana. We send you many thanks and hope to meet you here soon at Shanta Vana. All meditators are welcome to Shanta Vana. Unfortunately, we still have a covid lock down in the Czech Republic now. But we believe that the situation will change and soon it will be possible to meditate together here.
