Sadhu Benedict Moth (St Benedict Monastery) is a Benedictine monastery located at Maheswarapasha in Khulna district (South-West of Bangladesh). It began its life in January 1978 when an Italian young missioner, Carlo Rubini, and a Bengali young man, Premananda Karmaker, thought of starting a Christian monastic presence in Bangladesh.
After ten years, spent in deepening the Christian and Hindu monastic experience and its possible adaptation to the present situation in the Country, they purchased a suitable place (at Maheswarapasha, which means ?God&?s delights?) where, in 1989, they started building the small monastery that, in 1990, got its recognition as a dependent monastery of Praglia Abbey (Italy).
The first Catholic Bible and the full Monastic Liturgy of the Hours were translated by the monks of Sadhu Benedict Moth, and ppublished jointly by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Bangladesh and Sadhu Benedict Moth.
