Despite emphasis on the original Buddhist texts, the Sati Foundation is guided by a contemporary Buddhism. Of course, differences in cultural history are noticeable, especially considering the role of women in society. The Sati Foundation therefore is committed to helping and supporting the Bhikkhunī Saṅgha, the female ordained, women on the Buddhist path as well as Buddhist nunneries.
The teachings of the Buddha were transmitted orally for 500 years and then compiled and written down in the Pali Canon. They are recorded in the Pali language and thus the Sati Foundation is interested in researching and preserving this language. In addition, we support publications of Dhamma talks, book publications and translations.
