From the TKADC website:

The Taungplulu Kaba-Aye Dhamma Center (TKADC) was established in 1978 by the forest master Very Venerable Taungpulu Tawya Kaba-Aye Sayadaw of Upper Burma and his student Rina Sircar. The mission of TKADC is to offer Theravada Buddhist teachings as practiced in the Forest Tradition as a way to foster peace for all sentient beings. Kaba-Aye means world peace, and as the Venerable Sayadaw taught, world peace begins with inner peace. By cultivating mindfulness, clear comprehension, and metta (lovingkindness), you will be cultivating a peaceful mind and body for yourself which in turn creates a peaceful atmosphere around you enabling others to benefit. TKADC supports our three resident monks and offers retreats and workshops in both an urban and rural setting.
