About Us - Buddha Temple Tamil Version

Kanchipuram(Tamil: காஞ்சிபுரம்), or Kanchi, is a famous temple city in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It served as the capital city of the Pallava Kingdom. It is now the Administrative headquarters of Kanchipuram district.

This ancient city of Kachipuram was once a important Buddhist centre where many  prominent Buddhist monks lived.  Some of them were  Buddhaghosha 5th century, Sumati, Jotipala, Aniruddha, Acharya Dharmapala, Deepankara Tero, Ananda Tero, Saddhamma Jotipala/ And among the most famous Buddhists of ancient Kanchi are Dignaga, the nun Manimegalai and Bodhidharma.  The Buddhist centres build during the time of the kings can still be seen.

Buddha in Kanchipuram
Our mission is to understand the purpose of this rare human birth, to know ourselves, to undertand impermanance (anicca), for health of the body and mind, to spread unconditional love  (metta),  compassion (karuna) and equanimity (upekha)  towards ourselves and others.  The freedom that the Buddha realized and the meditation techniques that he taught such as Vipassana  are also taught here.  On Sundays we do spiritual chanting and on full moon days we conduct special poojas. Then we recite from the Holy Dhammapadam and this is followed by a Dhamma Talk.

We sincerely invite you to participate in this auspicious event to receive its blessings, then afternoon buddha worship sangha will tie the Auspiciousness thread for all participants.

You may also take this opportunity to get his blessings...

Last Words

The Buddha tirelessly traveled and taught until his death at age 80. His last words to his followers:

"Behold, O monks, this is my last advice to you. All component things in the world are changeable. They are not lasting. Work hard to gain your own salvation."
