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:
- To be endowed with faith; accomplishment of confidence
- To be endowed with morality; accomplishment of virtue
- To be endowd with generosity; accomplishment of charity
- To be endowed with wisdom; accomplishment of wisdom
Then, he will give guidance to the group of audience on Vipassana meditation.
Sayadaw U Sujana (U Thuzana) is the disciple of Ovadacariya Sayadawgi U Panditabhivamsa of Panditarama in Myanmar. Previously, he was the meditation teacher (Kammatthanacariya) in Malaysia Buddhist Meditation Centre (MBMC), Penang, Malaysia.
