Itsukushimi-Dera

ph06.jpg
 The term Metta Vihara means the temple of loving kindness or the abode (or residence) of loving kindness. In a very specific Buddhist sense it also means living with (or in) a heart of loving kindness.
 The Metta Vihara provides its visitors an exceptional and a unique opportunity of learning and practicing the early Buddhist teachings of the TheravAda tradition (including VipassanA BhAvanA) which represents the teachings and practice of the oldest Buddhist tradition in its history.
 The simple but profound teachings of the TheravAda tradition with its ways of practice were preserved in their pristine purity through the ages due to the devoted efforts of the Buddhist monks and laity in south and east Asian lands like Sri Lanka, Burma (Myanmar) and Thailand.
 The MettA VihAra has its roots in the Kelaniya Rajamaha Viharaya, Sri Lanka – a land where the TheravAda tradition has its unbroken history of 2600 years.



Consultation
