Off one of Bangkok’s busy streets is a winding road bedecked with businesses, condominiums, a Christian Church,
and near its end, the School of Life. It is here that one can find the base of operations for the
Knowing Buddha Organization.
Only four years old, the KBO boasts over 5,000 members and has effectively launched campaigns to protect
Buddha images in France, Germany, the Netherlands, the United States and Thailand. KBO is the brainchild of a young Thai
entrepreneur turned meditation master, Acharavadee Wongsakon.
Since its inception, the organization has successfully coordinated 100 cases to protect Buddha images worldwide. Many of
the KBO’s campaigns have been quite successful.
