DCI Center for Buddhist Studies
was established to be the center for study and research for early Theravada Buddhism, to guide the world by the light of the Buddha’s philosophy, to change our world to be a better place so the human race can live together in peace and develop both economic and spiritual growth simulteously. The main focus is to train student monks to be well-versed in the knowledge of the Dhamma (pariyatti), who practice Dhamma on a daily basis (patipatti), who mediate to attain enlightenment (pativedha), and who preach the wisdom of the Buddha to the lay people (dessanā). The goal is for our graduated monks to be exemplary role models to lay people and to apply Buddhist principles to advise the lay people how to solve their present day problems most effectively

Academic works and Research are fact finding activities done systematically
The knowledge from these academic works can be put into practice to make people’s lives better. It includes looking outside Buddhism in order to create right view in the world. This will be beneficial to Buddhism both nationally and in other countries. If we want to propagate Buddhism and dhamma practice effectively throughout the world, we must have strong academic support.
