A temple in a western sense is a place where ritual and ceremonial actions take place under the guidance of clergy.

However, a "wat" includes more than that and can also have, besides its spritual function, various tasks in the cultural and social area. Nevertheless Wat Dhammapateep is called by everyone, in short, "the Temple".

Judicially the Wat has taken the form of a vzw, a non-profit organisation (in the Belgian law). For some people, such a wordly association seems far away from the spiritual temple and they don't understand that it concerns the same judicial person (incorporate). For that reason we also call the vzw the "Temple Association".
