A Monastic Residence Founded in 2013
The Vihara is located in a residence in northeast Charlotte near Shamrock Drive & Eastway Drive. Fully-ordained female monks are known in the old language as bhikkhunis.
Charlotte-born fully ordained Buddhist female monk, Ayya Sudhamma, brings to the group her 17 years of experience living in traditional Theravada Buddhist monasteries to offer a variety of meditation techniques and Buddhist wisdom. People of all religions are welcome. We do not try to convert anyone.
