The Sayagyi U Ba Khin Village was one of the three major projects to be taken up to mark the birth centenary of Sayagyi U Ba Khin in 1999. This unique facility with bungalows and flats enables students from all over the world to reside adjacent to Dhamma Giri. This facility is extended to meditators. All residents are required to observe the five precepts.

 

 

 

The Asoka Pillar, with the Wheel of Dhamma atop, situated near the Myanmar Gate is a symbol of deep gratitude to Emperor Ashoka who sent Vipassana to the neighbouring countries. Had Emperor Ashoka not sent it to Myanmar, Vipassana would have been lost totally.

 

 

 

A Buddha Park is also to be constructed soon near the Community Centre. This will include an exhibition of fine marble engravings depicting important events in the life of the Buddha. The engravings are ready. The Sayagyi U Ba Khin Village is to evolve to be an idyllic and personal dwelling place for meditators.
