Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee
Founder of Sathira-Dhammasathan

Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee Sthirasuta is a Buddhist nun and the founder of Sathira-Dhammasathan, in Bangkok. The Center, under Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee leadership, believes that Dhamma is sacred, when it can be applied in the normal way of living. We also believe that every human being has the potential to live a life that is free from suffering. We believe that people can be different and that difference should be respected and accepted.

In all her work, Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee uses Dhamma to bring peace, harmony, respect, and an open heart, without discrimination or bias, into the chaotic world of high-power meetings.

Naturally, her compassion, her teachings and her projects caught the attention of organizations in other countries and she has been frequently invited to attend well- known and widely accepted summits in several countries, as the country’s representative of nuns, Buddhist ordained women.

Whenever and wherever Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee goes, she brings with her peace, compassion, and her unconditional love, which shines brightly and touches the hearts of other attendees. Over 10 years, she is Co-Chair for the Global Peace Initiative of Women, an organization committed to engaging in inter-faith dialogue as a means of creating world peace, and dedicated to creating both inner and outer peace and harmony in “hot-spots” around the world. As a message of motherhood, she works to support youth around the world, and as a co-worker with the Global Peace Initiative of Women and the UNDP, worked for the First Global Youth Leadership Summit at the United Nations, New York, USA in 2006.
