佛陀正覺後2454年/西元2022年

A Brief Introduction of Sambodhi Sangha

Sambodhi Saṅgha's practice and cultivation is based on the Seven Categories of Suttas common to the Southern lineage Theravada's Saṃyutta-Nikāya and the Northern lineage's Saṃyukta-Āgama. The Seven Categories of Suttas are the earliest recorded teachings of the Buddha from the first Buddhist council.

The practice of Sambodhi Saṅgha emphasizes the right view of “Relevant Influencing (Nidānas)” and the insight into the body and mind, in order to liberate from greed.

The monks and nuns of the Saṅgha practice insight meditation throughout the year. Not only the monks and nuns do not accept, accumulate or use money, but also they do not have attendant to accept or manage money on their behalf.

Sambodhi Saṅgha propagates the Buddha’s original teachings in Taiwan and other places around the world all year round, teaching the Middle-Path Practice, that is, practicing the Seven Factors of Enlightenment and hence, attaining in stages the three rounds and twelve aspects of the Four Noble Truths. By doing so, the Buddha’s teachings are applied and testified in real lives to help solve problems and develop a bright and successful live.


In the 2450th year of Enlightenment of Buddha Era, on the 14th-15th days of first lunar month; (i.e. March 1st to 2nd, 2018 C.E.), Venerable Vūpasama Thero of Sambodhi Saṅgha invited the Most Ven. Kammatthanacara Dodampahala Chandrasiri Maha Nayaka Thero of Amarapura Nikāya, Ven. Kirama Wimalajothi Maha Thero of Siam Nikāya and 8 other Theros from Sri Lanka to Taiwan, established the Fundamental Sima of Original Buddhism, and performed an Upasampadā Ordination.

Hereafter, the Sambodhi Saṅgha led by Venerable Vūpasama Thero acceded this sacred linage in Taiwan, a Buddhism lineage from Sri Lanka with a history of over 2400 years.
