The Dhammakaya Meditation Center of San Jose was founded on November 1st, 2009, as a part of the vision of Ven. Dhammajayo Bhikkhu, the abbot of Wat Phra Dhammakaya in Thailand, who wishes to spread world peace through inner peace to every corner of the world.
We began from a small group of individuals in Northern California who came together for meditation. Now our group has grown to include members from many cities including San Jose, San Francisco, Sacramento and Redding.
