Goljek Forest Hermitage – also called Samaṇadīpa – is a small monastic (samaṇa) sanctuary (dīpa) for small number of monks from the contemplative and conservative forest tradition of Theravāda Buddhism. It is the first of the kind in this part of Europe that follows the original teachings of the Buddha, as found in the early texts and has an unbroken linage from around 2600 years ago. The monks follow the high standard of the monastic code (vinaya) and the teaching (dhamma), which can be found in Theravādin countries (Thailand, Sri Lanka, Burma, Laos, Cambodia).

Samaṇadīpa uses two seperated lands. The main Hermitage's cottage (Ārāma) stands on a slope of half a hectare of land, and more than 3/4 of it is covered in forest. The cottage has the Shrine Room, the kitchen and two bedrooms; in the forest are two kuties, Abhaya Kuṭī and Piya Kuṭī. The second - more secluded and private property - has a cottage (Viveka Vihāra) with two bedrooms and one kuti (Viveka Kuṭī). The property is located about 20min walk from the Samanadipa Arama Vihara.

Samaṇadīpa welcomes visits from anyone who is interested in the Buddha's Teaching, meditation or seeking the answers to their existential problems. The main purpose of the place is to provide seclusion for monks, however any visitor is welcome to talk to monks and also could stay here overnight for few days.

La "Asociación Española de Buddhismo Theravada" es una asociación de carácter cultural, sin ánimo de lucro, fundada en marzo de 2008.

Es un proyecto que se ha gestado entre varias de las ciudades más importantes del país: Barcelona, Madrid, Alicante, Zaragoza y Castellón, donde residen los miembros fundadores.

No pretendemos, en absoluto, atribuirnos la representación de todos los interesados en el Buddhismo Theravada en el territorio nacional, pero sí aspiramos a que cualquier persona sinceramente interesada en el Buddhadhamma pueda unirse a nosotros para compartir su experiencia del Dhamma y contribuir a fomentar la enseñanza original del Buddha en España.

Saddha – Associazione Amici del Santacittarama, nasce nell’estate del 2011 con lo scopo di favorire l’incontro di buddhisti laici che cercano buoni amici spirituali con i quali condividere la pratica, uniti da un comune riconoscimento del valore dei Rifugi e Precetti. È non dogmatica e inclusiva, aperta sia a praticanti da lunga data sia a persone che vi si stanno avvicinando da poco, in sinergia con tutte le altre Associazioni italiane o semplicemente gruppi di pratica che stanno lavorando su questo sentiero di sviluppo della consapevolezza nel mondo laico.
