Primarily I can answer any questions related to meditation and Buddhist tradition in Myanmar (Burma). This includes present traditions as well as past history, and such traditions as Pa Auk, SN Goenka, Mahasi, Shwe Oo Min, etc. I can respond to technical questions on technique, questions on history and lineage, and practical questions for seekers to the Golden Land. In some cases I can compare Burmese Buddhist tradition to other Buddhist countries and the experience found in the West.

All your questions will be answered, and you may not have to agree with the answers. Such is the beauty of Buddhism. I follow the Theravada tradition, and have been studying Buddhism for more than 50 years. As I am not a Buddhist scholar, I answer in simple language, and I prefer answering general questions rather than textual.
