Wat Thai Bhavana is a Buddhist community in the Thai Theravada tradition.
It is a community for all people who are interested in the Buddhist way of life. Everyone is welcome, irrespective of age, colour or creed. We offer guidance to those interested in practicing the Dhamma.
The Dhamma is the teachings given by the Lord Buddha over 2600 years ago, and those teachings point to an underlying and transcendent reality which everyone can experience directly for themselves. In order to see reality as it truly is without the fetters of craving and desire, the Buddha established a series of practices taken together are referred to as the Noble Eightfold Path. This path of practice includes developing generosity and kindness, morality, and meditation, leading to the unfolding of wisdom.
