Founder Ven. Omalpe Sobhita Thero lives with the firm conviction that the monk's role is to serve for the happiness and well-being of all beings. Well aware that without life's basic needs, there can be no room for spiritual growth, he strives tirelessly to uplift the living standards of the rural poor while, at the same time, sharing his deep knowledge of the Dhamma with all.

"Caratha bhikkave carikan, Bahujana hitaya, bahujana sukhaya."


"Go forth, o monks, ........ for the happiness and well-being of all."
