The Willpower Institute was founded by Luangphor Viriyang Sirintharo, an eminent master teacher of meditation from Thailand. The master teacher felt compelled to spread meditation to the rest of the world after personally experiencing the extraordinary peace and happiness that arises from this practice. Luangphor’s vision is to reduce world conflict and attain world peace. Meditation increases mind power. With increased mind power, people can control their emotions, reduce violence and increase harmony in relationships.
Luangphor’s mission is to train instructors to help spread the theory and practice of meditation. His reason for this is analogous to the “ripple effect”. “You teach ten. They teach ten and each of them teach ten. Soon, one thousand, one million.”
The ultimate goal of the Willpower Institute and the main reason why the president, Luangphor Viriyang Sirintharo, founded the nonprofit organization is to promote world peace through meditation.
