Bhante does not forget even his homeland. He founded the DHAMMADIPA Foundation where he so far collected funds he has received from donors and also from teachings at foreign universities. The aim of the foundation and among the other things is the construction of the Shanta Van meditation centre in Czech Republic for all Buddhist groups - in the spirit of his thesis that "There is only one Buddhism." We refer to these in the section SHANTA VANA.

Dhammadipa Foundation is an officially approved, non-profit organization. It is setup to administer the SHANTA VANA Project in Snehov, Czech Republic. The project aims at providing an open space where yogis and meditators could use for higher spiritual pursuit.
