Thursday 8th October we will be back at the beautiful Ariyasom Villa Bangkok Boutique Hotel with visiting Myanmar meditation master Sayadaw U Sujana (Thuzana). He has been teaching meditation in Chiang Mai over the Rains retreat period, and will be in Bangkok for just 2 days before flying back to Myanmar. We are glad he will be able to share some of his experience with us during his short visit. He will be accompanied by a German Bhikkhu.

Sayadaw will be at Ariyasom for lunch (11 am) and through the afternoon, so people free in the day are welcome to come and meet/chat/meditate with Sayadaw during the day also.

Topic for this dhamma talk: “The way to happiness through vipassana meditation“. The discourse will be about virtues leading to spiritual welfare:

  1. To be endowed with faith; accomplishment of confidence
  2. To be endowed with morality; accomplishment of virtue
  3. To be endowd with generosity; accomplishment of charity
  4. To be endowed with wisdom; accomplishment of wisdom

Then, he will give guidance to the group of audience on Vipassana meditation.

    Hi,
    Is this in the morning or the evening?

    • Cittasamvaro says:

      We have invited Sayadaw to lunch at 11 am so it starts then. The actual formal talk is in the evening according to the times gives. During the day is a free-for-all. He will likely receive guests, talk with the visitors and maybe do some meditation together. Pandit Bhikkhu
