The Medhananda Dhamma School
Sri Medhananda Dhamma School This is a Sunday school for lay students. Presently there are about 150 students receiving Dhamma education in this school.

Sri Medhananda Memorial Library The present library contains a large collection of Dhamma books ranging from Pali canons to modern research works by eminent scholars.

The Dhamma School (Sunday school) is an organized effort to provide an opportunity for our children in their search for a ‘right-way’ of living. We understand the importance of Buddhist values to our lives. As parents, our sincere wish is for our children to find happiness in their lives and, for them to be free from suffering. To this end, DhammaSchool provides a solid foundation to develop wholesome thoughts that will take them on the ‘right-way’. Adults who wish to learn Buddhism are also welcome to participate in these classes.

"Noble human values should be inculcated in children their tender minds must be equipped with noble teachings of their religions. Students should study and practice religious teachings at Dhamma schools. Academic knowledge alone can't make a child perfect. The child must be spiritually trained to think positively."Every success in life depends on right knowledge. Knowledge is related to two aspects of the world. 1. Conventional Knowledge 2. Spiritual Knowledge
The first is useful to lead a happy, mundane life. The second helps us to overcome the inherent nature of the world, that is the mass of suffering; birth, decay, death, etcThe aim of our Dhamma School is to provide the students with knowledge and practice explained in the Buddha’s teachings, which is helpful not only to lead a happy mundane life, but also to end up the mass of suffering mainly related to birth, decay, decease and death.
I, as the principal of Sri MedhanandaDhamma School, am very happy with the opening of its website with the dedicated service of the deputy principal, registrar and the staff. I wish all the success for its future activities. May the Triple Gem Bless You !!!
