What is Dhammakaya Meditation?

Dhammakaya Meditation was discovered by the Most Venerable Phramongkolthepmuni or Luang Por Sodh (1884 - 1959), a Thai Buddhist monk who sacrificed his life in meditation practice and meditative research until he attained the ‘Dhammakaya,’ a pure transcendental body known as the ‘Buddhahood’ or ‘true inner self’ which exists within everyone.

Levels of Meditation Attainment:

In Dhammakaya meditation, practitioners normally progress step by step by attaining the refined human body (astral body), celestial body, Rupa-Brahma body, Arupa-brahma body, and the Dhammakaya, respectively.  These are the inner bodies which differ in levels of refinement and purity. 

After attaining the Dhammakaya, practitioners are eligible to practice the superknowledge (Vijja Dhammakaya) which allows one to exercise various supernatural powers such as recalling past lifetimes, acquiring divine eye and ear, understanding animals’ language, traveling to heaven, hell, and the Nirvana, meeting with angels and beloved ones who already passed away, and investigating the universe and various realms.

Most of all, Dhammakaya Meditation allows practitioners to gain inner peace, bliss, purity, happiness, refreshment, and pure energy according to the level of meditation they achieve.

How to Meditate:

To meditate, simply visualise a crystal ball image in the middle of your abdomen and repeat the mantra Samma Arahang quietly in your mind over and over until the mind calms down and progresses in meditation until attaining respective meditation experiences.
