Over the past 2600 years of Buddha Sāsana’s history, the most fundamental tasks of the members of Sangha are mainly learning, writing, lecturing, meditation, preaching Dhamma and sharing Dhamma. Practicing and preserving the teachings of the Buddha not only essential for us but also for others. CDU has been assisting those who want to learn Dhamma or those who want to promulgate the teachings of Buddha regardless of who they are.
As we firmly believe that we can build the World Peace through the individual peace by learning and practicing the Theravāda Buddha-Dhamma, our vision is to give priority to the propagation of Buddha Sāsana by nurturing the Dhammadūta monks.
- to teach Theravāda Buddha-Dhamma by using the modern teaching-learning methods,
- to train the students in Pariyatti (Learning) and Patipatti (practice) and
- to train the Dhammadūta monks who are capable of carrying out the worldly benefits and Dhamma benefits after learning the Buddhist Literature.
