Who We Are

The Damrivi Foundation was set up in 2003 by a group of academics and professionals to establish a forum for social action guided by Buddhist insights and philosophy. The founders were inspired by the conviction that Buddhism provides a philosophy and a way of life promoting welfare of humankind and its harmony with environment . However that the great potential that lies in Buddhism remains to a large extent yet to be explored, articulated and actualized.

The services rendered to the world and Sasana by Damrivi Foundation, run by a group of academics and professionals devoted to Buddhism, is commendable. Deriving inspiration from the teaching of the Buddha that mind is the fore-runner of all things, 'mano pubbangama dhamma', the foundation aims at transforming the society by transforming the thoughts, views and attitudes of people. Accordingly, in order to achieve this goal Damrivi Foundation is seen focusing mainly on spiritual and educational programs. In this context, special mention must be made on its counselling service based on Buddhist insights.
