When possible, BIA has meetings and joint activities with Buddhist or other religious leaders and centers to form bonds of harmony, learning, and mutual understanding of each other’s work.


Whether from the West or East, BIA has hosted visitors from around the world, and is happy to learn from such experiences.


The late Ajahn Buddhadasa was very broadminded and felt that it was important to encourage harmony and good mutual understanding between  different sects and religious practitioners. At BIA, we intend for this to continue.
