Dhammayuttika Nikaya

Postby andre9999 » Mon Dec 13, 2010 2:06 pm

I'm starting to dig around for a teacher in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area, but the only Theravada groups are Dhammayuttika Nikaya. There are plenty of Mahayana groups here that seem more established and Western. There's also a Therevada group that meets at the Universal Unitarian church, but I suspect they're a little too "Western" for me.

Does anyone have any experience or insight into Dhammayuttika Nikaya? I'm trying to find more information about what they believe and what differentiates them from others, but I haven't found what I'm looking for yet.


Thanks,
Andre

Hi Andre,

The Dhammayuttika Nikaya is one of (and the smaller of) two (indigenous) Thai (Buddhist) sects...with only a few (very) minor differences between them and the larger Mahanikai Nikaya...and not even worth thinking about as they are both Theravada through and through...

I ordained as a Mahanikai but live in a Dhammayut temple...and never give any thought to the matter unless someone broaches it...which is basically never...

If Theravada Buddhism is what interests you I can recommend them...all the best...
