A Special Day Long Wisdom of Mindfulness Meditation Retreat
At the Mahasi Meditation Centre, Yangon, Myanmar, offered
freely for all English speaking participants living in the country.
If you wish to participate, please fill out the application below
and we’ll get right back to you with confirmation of attendance.
The retreat will open with a tour of the Centre by Alan Clements,
an American and former Buddhist monk at the Centre. This will
be followed by taking the 8 traditional Buddhist precepts for the
day along with receiving the mindfulness meditation instructions
that have been taught by the late Mahasi Sayadaw for 70 years.
The retreat will consist of both sitting and walking meditations.
A Senior Meditation Teacher at the Centre will give a mid-day
dhamma talk followed by Q & A. Bring a notebook if you wish.
A Burmese-style meal will be offered to participants at 10:30 am.
Retreat Assistant (kappiya): Supporting the Sayadaw, Meditation
Teacher, and participating yogis (with the cultural translation of the
retreat, help explaining protocol, technique questions, and other
general help) will be:
Alan Clements (a former Buddhist monk at the Mahasi Centre).
Practice at Mahasi Sasana Yeiktha is a rare and precious opportunity.
Yogis are asked to enter their retreat with open-heartedness, to
practice with purpose and dignity, and to display kindness and
high-respect for all during their time at the Center.
The retreat is freely offered by the Buddha Sasana Nuggaha
Organization, the executive body that runs the meditation centre.
At the end of the retreat if one wishes to offer dana – a contribution
of any amount – they can do so in the foyer of the hall before leaving.
In addition, we are offering a two ten day Wisdom of Mindfulness
Meditation Retreats at the Centre Jan 17-26 & Jan 26-Feb 4, 2018
for those who wish to return for one or both retreats back to back.
With good will for the entire cosmos, cultivate a limitless heart:
Above, below, & all around, unobstructed, without hostility or hate.
