Heart of Liberation Refuge

In the pine forest of Central Vietnam, there is the noble intention to establish a refuge for all sincere hearts who seek to practice the teachings of the Buddha for liberation…

 The refuge is built on land that formerly grew pine trees. There are currently a few abandoned structures that were placed by the previous owner. In order to improve the existing structures into simple accommodations, there will be the need to establish water and power…

Additional basic houses (kutis) are also in the plans to facilitate and support the monks’ abiding.


Join us to cultivate the wholesome and the meritorious

A refuge for sincere hearts seeking to practice the teachings of the Buddha for liberation

The Land

The current offered land covers an area of 4,000 square metres of pine forest. The monks are also offered the space in the deeper forest for their abiding in solitude.

To see the Buddha nature that is within— come back to the heart

Following the Ancient Path of the Buddha 

We open our hearts to investigate the truths learning from the wise. We dedicate our efforts to the practice in order to realize the truth of non-self, liberating our hearts from suffering so that the Dhamma can be shared and offered for the welfare and benefit of all sentient beings…
