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, the Holy transcendental Dhamma body, 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.

In the same manner, Chakkavatti Meditation is similar to Dhammakaya Meditation in many aspects, but the main difference is that Chakkavatti Meditation relies on the exercising of superknowledge or vijja with the transcendental Chakkavatti Body or the adorned Imperial Dhamma Body.

How to Meditate:
