School of Life Foundation

Founded in 2009 by Meditation Master Acharavadee Wongsakon, The School of Life Foundation has become a beacon of meditation teachings in Thailand. Offering both beginner and advanced meditation courses at no cost, the Foundation has made authentic Buddha teachings accessible to all. These teachings encompass meditation practices, moral ethics, societal virtues, and a deep reverence for the Thai Monarchy, further realized through the array of events and courses they frequently organize.

Adjacent to the meditation center, the Manasikarn Hall stands as a testament to the profound journey of the Buddha, detailing his life events and the culmination of his enlightenment. Recognizing its significance, the Tourism Association of Thailand (TAT) has proudly listed Manasikarn Hall as the New & Premier Unseen Tourist Destination of Thailand.

But the Foundation’s influence isn’t just limited to meditation and enlightenment; it also extends its benevolent arm to support numerous social initiatives across Thailand and global missions.
