The Theravāda Academy is a learning centre of Theravāda Buddhist education that embraces the learning, practice and realisation of spiritual attainment, intellectual stimulation, vibrancy and digitalisation that underlie our current attempts in revitalising the resurgence of Theravāda Buddhism in Malaysia.
The Theravāda Academy is an initiative that aims to realiseBrahmavihara Monastery & Retreat Centre’s key missions through a single synthesised academy that coordinates and integrates a Theravāda educational programme. It is founded upon a clear vision of promoting the growth of Theravāda Buddhism and benefiting the community by facilitating the development of the spiritual and other resources of children, youth, meditators and volunteers so as to equip them to learn and propagate the Dhamma, as well as serve to the society’s disadvantaged and afflicted persons. At the same time, it aims to benefit participants personally by realising wisdom and compassion through the cultivation of mind in addition to facilitating the development of lifelong friendships among like-minded “good friends” (kalyāṇa-mitta).
