History

Dhammakaya International Society of Australia Inc. (DISA) is a non-profit charitable organization. DISA was kindly given permission to set up a Meditation Centre by Phra Rajbhavanavisuddhi (the Abbot of Wat Phra Dhammakaya Thailand) to promote Buddhism, the Dhammakaya knowledge and to teach meditation for World Peace through Inner Peace.

DISA organized regular Sunday Meditation under the patronage and encouragement of the Abbot whose guidance is based on the Lord Buddha's teaching. In 1992 meditation guidance took place via sound relay from Wat Phra Dhammakaya to correspond with "Dhammakaya time". The number of members increased continually and the group was registered as DISA in 1997

In June 1998, a team of 3 monks, upasaka(or laymen) and upasika(or laywomen) led by Venerable Phra Palad Sudham Sudhammo, Assistant to the Abbot of Wat Phra Dhammakaya arrived in Australia and began their work from an office at Burwood NSW.

In 2002 DISA has moved the head office to Strathfield NSW and bought a property in Berrilee NSW and set up as a Meditation Retreat.
