  Welcome    Hildegard Huber    Ajahn Tong    Vipassana    Method of meditation

Hildegard Huber

Hildegard Huber has been a student of Ven. Ajahn Tong Sirimangalo (Phra Dhammamangalajarn) since 1992. During the first eight months of intensive practice of Vipassana meditation in Thailand, she recognized the wealth of the Dhamma which opened up a new view of life. She assisted Luang Poh Banyat as well as Kathryn and Thanat Chindaporn with instructing the international students who came to practice Vipassana at Wat Ram Poeng.

In 1993 Hildegard Huber returned to her native Germany and started to teach in addition to running her health food store. She has organized meditation courses taught by Ven. Ajahn Tong and Thanat and Kathryn Chindaporn in Germany, France, Slovenia and Sweden from 1994 onwards. During these courses she assisted the teachers.

Several long stays in the Thai monastery presented the opportunity to meditate under the guidance of Ven. Ajahn Tong and at the same time to teach. In 1998 Ven. Ajahn Tong authorised her as Vipassana teacher and gave her the name Dhammacari. Since then Hildegard Huber teaches Vipassana on her own. 2004 she gave up her wordly professional life completely.

At the suggestion of Ven. Ajahn Tong, the Dhammacari Vipassana Meditation Center Association was founded in September 2004 with the mission to establish a meditation center in Germany. The center was opened in February 2006 in Sonnenthal (near Munich). Hildegard Huber has resided there ever since. Through her own long term extensive meditation practice, she can pass on the acquired knowledge and the realization of the teaching in an understandable way. Her kind nature allows her to guide her students in an empathetic manner through their practice.

In a deep sense this is conveyed in the name Dhammacari: A Dhammacari is a person who practices the Dhamma - or is in the Dhamma - a person who grows in the Dhamma.

A Dhammacari is not necessarily a person who studies a lot, who obtaines a lot of knowledge about all types of scientific works, who has a perfect memory, who can recite whole scriptures and chants, who has great ideas, or who has written beautiful stories, poems and books about the teaching.

A Dhammacari is just someone who has reached knowledge through the practice of Vipassana meditation, who receives the wisdom from inside and who thus recognises all things as they really are.

She was awarded the "Annual Benefactor of Buddhism Award" twice for her service in the Dhamma by the Sangha in May 2011 and 2012 in Chiang Mai. In Bangkok she received the award of the "Sao Sema Dhammacakka" (also known as the Golden Pillar of the Dhamma) for benefactors of Buddhism, awarded for introducing and spreading the Dhamma abroad by HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand.
