  • Description


    Dear great friends,

    We used to be a meditation center's free English-speaking club helping people to improve their English and a trustworthy address for every foreigner all over the world to come, experience, and stay in Vietnam.

    Due to Covid 19 pandemic's difficulties, we had to close the center and now our family would like to open our small house to welcome volunteers from all over the world to come, teach English and exchange cultures with us.
    We also invite some locals, monks and nuns who wish to enhance their language skills to come and enjoy the multinational environment. We may collect some small fees from the locals to maintain the operation fee and offer free stays and food to foreign friends.

    We try to keep our spirits of keeping precept, doing good, bringing benefits to all, and knowing and purifying minds through whatever we are doing.
