Dhamma is the profound truths of human life pointed out by the Awakened One (Buddha) and other liberated spiritual guides. While the wording is conditioned by time and place, the true Dhamma transcends our differences and distinctions. A life wholly given to Dhamma is a life without suffering. This is our natural duty according to the law of nature. The Dhamma of Dhamma.
A Dhamma center such as ours seeks to live in harmony with Dhamma and to support others in doing so, with whatever skilful means available to us. We are especially inspired by the expressions of Dhamma found in the Pali suttas of early Buddhism, as preserved by the Theravada school, yet respect all teachings of genuine selflessness.
Ajahn Buddhadasa's most concise and inclusive definition of Dhamma:
"DHAMMA" HAS MANY MEANINGS, but its essence is the duty which is performed correctly regarding the practitioner's situation, according to the Law of Nature, leading to peace for everyone, no matter the time or place." (From his Eightieth Birthday Memorial Book)
