|Sitagu Buddhist Vihara, and the Theravada Dhamma Society of America were founded in 1996 by the Venerable Ashin Nyanissara, Sitagu Sayadaw of Burma. Sitagu Vihara was founded to provide a center for the practice of Theravada Buddhist meditation and Dhamma study in the United States in a traditional monastic context. The Theravada Dhamma Society of America (TDSA) was founded as a lay organization which lends both financial and volunteer support to the efforts of Sitagu Vihara, and provides for the support and well-being of its resident monks.
Currently the Vihara conducts weekly meditation sessions as well as classes for both adults and children on the Dhamma. If you have an interest in learning about Buddhism, or are looking for a place to strengthen your current meditation practice, please consider visiting us. You are always welcome.

|4/5/2015 This is a great place right here in central Texas to become acquainted with buddhist practice. With the presence of the resident monks and the structure of support from the lay people. The monestary is complete with opputunity for meditation practice, generosity & kindness, and studying the dhamma at the on sight library. Traditional festivals are held throughout the year. And who could forget the ever present peaceful atmosphere that is maintained there by observance of the natural environment and beautiful architecture.|
