Future Plan, Vision & Mission etc


As mentioned before,
I went back to Myanmar for finding a suitable land for my religious work. Luckily, I found a place in the precinct of Shwe Kyet Yet Kyaung, on Bogyoke museum Lane, Bahan Township, Yangon, Myanmar.
It is over 10000 square feets and so is wide enough and with which I would be able to establish the Buddhist institution. The institution that I thought of establishing would be named; “The Dhamma Garden Centre” which is situated nearby Kandawgyi, one of the most beautiful places located in the centre of Yangon, the largest city in Myanmar.
The centre provides a very healthy and a peaceful environment conducive to educational actives.

Future Plan to be extended..
When I pursued BA degree in Sasana University of Mandalay 
I met many foreigners coming to the historical places such 
as Shwenandaw monastery, Atumashi Kyaung and Mandalay Hill.

Then I found so many difficulties to communicate with them. 
I could not say anything even “Hello” to them. 
It was not that I don’t know English but that I hardly got an opportunity to speak it. 
I do not have ‘the used-to’ in it.

I could not be satisfied to the situation I am facing 
because I had learnt a lot of Buddhism in Pali, Burmese and English as well at that time.

While in Sri Lanka, I got a chance to study English again at Aquinas College 
in which students must use English only as communication tool. 
Because of that, students there can speak it fluently and perfectly. 
So they have ‘the used-to’ in it.

Then I come to know the difference between the above two academic places. 

The Dhamma Garden Centre aims at fulfilling that crack too.

The Centre attempts to evaluate Buddhist knowledge and English skills
 with which the students would meet their needs and help them 
to fulfill their aspirations and ambitions in life. 
For that purpose, the centre is keen in giving the best 
or rather doing the best for the students. 
The Centre is open and welcome to all regardless of age, race and sex. 
No matter whether you are the secular or the religious!!!

The Centre will be run as follows;
(1) Preliminary Level Part (I)
(2) Preliminary Level Part (II)
(3) Intermediate Level Part (I)
(4) Intermediate Level Part (II)
(5) Final Level

A student needs to sit placement test for the level. 
Duration of each level is six months 
and the Centre will confer Diploma Certificate after Final Level Pass.

Vision
To facilitate the making of a Buddhist community 
that would lead and be pro-active in learning, study, 
and practice the noble teachings of the Buddha committed intellectuals and professionals.

Mission
To reach out beyond boundary of Buddhists and through the noble teaching of the Buddha and enlightened leadership to bring about a better world in which people can live in harmony and peace with the sense of fulfilment and happiness.

Objectives
(I) To educate the young generation of Buddhists 
on the rich teachings and heritage of Buddhism.
(II) To assist them in cultivating faith and devotion to the Buddha-Sasana 
and to direct them towards the due essence of Buddhism.
(III) To establish in them the will to protect 
and to propagate the Buddha-Sasana for future generations.
(IV) To promote social welfare and charitable undertakings.
