The Oxford Buddha Vihara (OBV) is a centre for teaching the Buddha's message. Vihara means dwelling place. We aim to offer a programme which is practical and relevant for this modern era, so that more can benefit from the Buddha's teachings. The OBV was founded in 2003 by the Venerable Dr. Khammai Dhammasami, who has lived as an ordained Buddhist monk for the last 30 years. Since 2003 the Vihara has developed into a thriving community of monks and lay Buddhists from many different countries and cultures, with an emphasis on the traditions of SE Asia. The community includes groups of Burmese, Thai, Lao and Sri Lankan origin as well as Buddhists with a European background. In keeping with the tradition of the SE Asian temple, the Vihara and its monks exist through the generosity of temple community. Supporters offer food, basic clothing and medicines to the monks as well as financial contributions which ensure building upkeep and the spread of the teaching... Welcome to the Oxford..
