Originally a contract computer programmer by trade, Bhante Subhūti is an American Buddhist Monk with roots in the Sri Lanka and Myanmar Forest Traditions.  He ordained in 2001 under The Most Venerable Pa-Auk Sayadawgyi as his preceptor, a monk who is known for his strict practice of meditation and following the full list of monks’ rules which is very rare in the world today.  In 2007 he chose to go to Na-Uyana Monastery in Sri Lanka which also had similar rules and meditation standards. In Sri Lanka and still as a monk, he went through another ordination ceremony which reset his rains count and therefore, his seniority. He returned again to Pa-Auk in Myanmar in 2012. Three years later,  in 2015, Bhante Subhūti had an opportunity to go to Kauai, Hawaii, USA . He was very close to establishing a monastery but decided to leave for one year to allow the donors to save money. Back in Myanmar, he returned to school an earned a Diploma in Buddhism at the International Theravada Buddhist Missionary University.  He now, officially, has 11 “rains” (years of seniority), but has the combined total experience of 17 years. His heart has often floated back to Kauai and he has now returned again this April 9th to see if the vision of a monastery in Kauai can be revived. Bhante Subhūti is very strict in following the Theravada Buddhist monks’ 227 rules, and has not handled money in 17 years. He enjoys meditation, learning, teaching and collecting his food by alms where it is possible whether it be in Myanmar, Sri Lanka or Kauai itself.  He says, “It works, but you just have to have faith that it will work.”

Buddhist writings by Americam Bhikkhu Cintita Dinsmore.


Sathira-Dhammasthan, founded in 1987, is a learning community for peace and harmony, providing a variety of programs for people of all ages, genders, and walks of life. It is set in nine acres of trees, with lotus ponds, winding paths and meditative nooks. It is a tiny drop of water, radiating peace and serenity amidst the busy and bustling city of Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand.

Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee Sthirasuta is a Buddhist nun and the founder of Sathira-Dhammasathan, in Bangkok. The Center, under Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee leadership, believes that Dhamma is sacred, when it can be applied in the normal way of living. We also believe that every human being has the potential to live a life that is free from suffering. We believe that people can be different and that difference should be respected and accepted.

In all her work, Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee uses Dhamma to bring peace, harmony, respect, and an open heart, without discrimination or bias, into the chaotic world of high-power meetings.

The International College for Postgraduate Buddhist Studies, founded in 1996, is still a relatively new and small institution, but it provides an ideal educational and research environment for the philological study of Buddhism.

This is firmly anchored in the study of the classical languages in which the Buddhist texts have been transmitted: Sanskrit and Pali in South Asia, various Central Asian languages and Tibetan in Inner Asia, Chinese, Mongolian, Korean, and Japanese in East Asia.

Buddha Bodhivana Monastery is a branch monastery of the late Phra Bodhinyana Thera (Venerable Ajahn Chah b.1918  d.1992), the well-known and respected north-east Thai Meditation Master. Venerable Ajahn Kalyano is the Abbot of the monastery and resident teacher.

Buddha Bodhivana Monastery is primarily a training monastery for Buddhist monks (bhikkhus), novices (samaneras) and postulants (anagarikas), but it also provides a supportive environment in which individuals, families, visitors and residents are given the opportunity to be in contact with the principles of the Buddha’s teachings and to cultivate those same qualities in their own lives. The monastery is a place to study, practice and cultivate the central elements of the Buddha’s Path: generosity, virtue, mental cultivation, wisdom, and compassion.
