The Bauddha Dharmankur Sabha (Bengal Buddhist Association) is a socio – religious – cultural and philanthropic organization established in the year 1892. Activities carried out by the organization are possible due to the generosity of the people who are associated with it. It is their large hearted magnanimity that makes it possible for us to go forward with so many of our projects and dreams that our Founding Fathers had dreamt. We have been able to create many landmarks which have been well accepted by the Buddhist Community and mankind in general which has given them a scope to make good use for their spiritual upliftment. We do have many more projects that need to be undertaken which will need and require your constant help and support to see them through.


Our Vihara in Lucknow is now 100 years old. We have chalked out a proposal to construct a Vihara, a school and a Guest House which will help the local people as well as pilgrims visiting Sravasti and Kusinagar. We do have a proposal to construct a Novitiate School for the training of Monks and Nuns and an Old Age Home at our land situated in the our skirts of Kolkata.


The Dharmankur Vihara at Kolkata is more than a hundred years old. It is need of repairs and renovation as that will help sustain its longevity for another 100 years.
