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.
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.

Thanks to our friend Tzuyi Hsu (Shinko), who stayed in Shanta Vana for a long time and taught us chi-kung in Bhante courses.
