About the Vihara寺院简介



The Theravada Dhamma Society of America and the Sitagu Buddha Vihara were founded in 1994 1996 respectively in Austin, TX by the Venerable Ashin Nyanissara, aka Sitagu Sayadaw, of Burma. It also benefited for a number of years from the leadership and residence of the Venerable Ashin Mahosadha Pandita. The history of the Vihara in pictures can be downloaded here (pdf).

美国上座部佛法协会(The Theravada Dhamma Society of America)和西达古佛寺(Sitagu Buddha Vihara )分别于1994和1996年在美国德州奥斯汀市由缅甸的西达古西亚多(也就是阿辛·尼亚尼萨拉尊者Venerable Ashin Nyanissara)创立,这也得益于大药智者(Mahosadha Pandita 马侯萨塔·班迪达)多年的领导和驻锡。用图片展示的寺院历史可以在这里下载 here (pdf)。

The Sitagu Association, the international umbrella organization with which the Vihara is affiliated, was founded in Burma by Ashin Nyanissarain in 1980 to promote Buddhist education and public welfare. Expanding outward from Sitagu monastery in Sagaing Hills in central Burma in now encompasses several monastic universities, many hospitals and other public works. The Sitagu Buddhist Vihara is the center for overseas missionary activities. In America there are two additional Sitagu monasteries, the Sitagu Dhamma Vihara and the Sitagu Sangha Vihara, in Minnesota and Florida respectively.

寺院所属的西达古联合会(The Sitagu Association)是上一级的国际组织,由阿辛·尼亚尼萨拉尊者于1980年为推动佛教教育和公益事业在缅甸创立的。从中缅甸的实皆山的西达古寺向外扩展 ,联合会已经拥有几个佛教大学、很多医院和其它公共设施。西达古佛寺是是海外弘法的中心。在美国还有另外两座寺院,即西达古法寺和西达古僧寺,分别位于明尼苏达州和佛罗里达州。。

The mission of Sitagu Buddhist Vihara is to provide a center for the practice of Theravada Buddhist meditation and Dhamma study in the United States, for both laypeople and monastics, for both Westerners and ethnic Asians, in a traditional monastic context. It sits on 16.1 acres in rural Austin, Texas and consists of many private cottages and public facilities. It also supports community and cultural events that are very popular for Burmese and non-Burmese alike.

西达古佛寺的任务是为在美国进行上座部禅修和佛法学习,提供具有传统寺院环境的中心,不管是在家人还是出家人,不管是西方人还是东方人都一样。佛寺坐落在德州奥斯汀乡间16.1英亩的土地上,由很多禅修小屋和公共设施构成。寺院也支持社区和文化活动,这些活动在缅甸人和非缅甸人中都很流行。

The Theravada Dhamma Society of America (TDSA) was founded as a lay organization which lends both financial and volunteer support to the efforts of Sitagu Vihara, and provides for the support and well-being of its resident monastics.

美国上座部佛法协会是在家人组织,为西达古寺院提供经济支持和义工服务,为常住僧众提供帮助和维护他们的健康。
