The Dhamma Park is a holistic Eco-Spiritual Theme Park planned on Buddhist principles as a Pathway To Peace, leading us out of suffering and conflicts into inner Peace and World Peace. The arts, sustainable science, nature and humor all combine to raise spiritual and environmental awareness and to encourage ethical values and aesthetics in society. Dhamma Park will bring people of all ages, races and beliefs into direct contact with the Universal Values, in ways that will keep pace with rapidly changing public perceptions and tastes.
Dhamma Park will support the wellbeing of all living, and uplift the spirits of all who enter its precincts. Centered around a fountain of wisdom, it combines experiential walks amongst works of art, organic gardens, multi-media arts, marketplace, displays on natural power sources, an alternative medical health center, and simple accommodations. The concept of the theme part is replicable for any part of the world where favorable conditions may arise. The Peace Park model would bring spiritual and economic benefits to any community.
We have focused on developing strong links with the local community. Educational establishments, from kindergartens to universities, departments of further education, local government, public health and tourist organizations have all used our facilities to hold seminars and workshops, meetings and social activities. The ordained Buddhist community have joined in our activities and supports our endeavors.
