About Venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi
Venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi is a Theravada Buddhist Nun living in the Czech Republic, who is dedicating herself mainly to practice meditation mettā and satipaṭṭhāna. Ven. bhikkhunī Visuddhi has been a Buddhist Nun for thirteen years and applies very individual approach towards her students. She is focusing on teaching Buddhism not only to adults, but also to mothers, little children and teenagers. From the beginning, Venerable Visuddhi has been running a dhamma school in the Czech Republic for children of all ages, which has given her years of experience. She is regularly invited to speak about the Buddha´s teaching to students at schools and colleges. Venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi is a founder of a project called Suryia Lamai „The Children of the Sun.“ It’s aim is to provide for young kids in need from all over the world, to help them develop, to get education and to cover their basic needs.
Bhikkhunī Visuddhi spent many years in Sri Lanka studying and assisting Venerable bhante Pemasiri, who is considered as one of the most highly respected and qualified traditional meditation teachers in Sri Lanka.
From 2009 she has been more active in the Czech Republic and other countries in the Europe. Here, together with her supporters, they are building a Buddhist temple (ārāma) with the name Karuṇā Sevena (Abode of compassion). Venerable bhikkhunī Visuddhi established this small monastic environment as a place of refuge for practitioners and dhamma friends to practice and learn together in peace and harmony. We have purchased the neighboring building to allow meditators comfortable accommodation in a close proximity to ārāma. We are also looking for donors to help us pay off the monthly mortgage.

You can play a video from vesākha celebration in 2016 here. You can also see the newly renovated meditation hall.
Teaching of Buddhist meditation is traditionally shared as a gift of Dhamma (dhamma dāna). It is also a tradition for us, the lay community, to support monks and nuns, who handover this jewel of teaching and who are living from our gifts, allowing them to practice their monastic life. This act of giving is voluntary.
