Wat Phra Dhammakaya was built according to the four factors that contribute to the cultivation and development of virtues, that were taught by the Lord Buddha. These includes:
- Pleasant location,
- Pleasant food,
- Pleasant people and
- Pleasant Dhamma.
With the concept "building a true temple, training true monks and promoting people to be truly virtuous."
After the temple was established, more and more people came to learn Dhamma and practice meditation. Thus, it was necessary to acquire and develop additional plots of land and to extend the infrastructure to serve the congregation. The temple's development has been made possible by donation from laypeople. Every building at Wat Phra Dhammakaya was designed to be simple, strong and non-luxurious while saving costs of construction and maintenance in order to maximize the benefits of usage in promoting peace and harmony to humankind.
