Ashoka MissionBuddhist Mission From Modern Era
The Venerated Dharmavara Mahathera, a devoted Cambodian monk, journeyed through the lands of Burma (Myanmar) and Thailand before settling in Delhi. In recognition of the man's historic life, Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, gifted him a small plot of land on the outskirts of Mehrauli. Following the mass upheaval of Partition, this small Buddhist Mission became a peaceful refuge in the midst of a turbulent time. Bhante Dharmavara (the buddhist monk) finished his long life of 110 years in California, having influenced numerous life from that of the common man to kings. His peaceful legacy lives on the quite greenery of the Ashoka Mission.
