Expertise

Primarily I can answer any questions related to meditation and Buddhist tradition in Myanmar (Burma). This includes present traditions as well as past history, vipassana and samatha, 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.

Experience in the area

I have been in Burma since 2007 and have led numerous pilgrimages for mediators and senior vipassana teachers coming from around the world. I am currently working on a comprehensive (free) guidebook that will list hundreds of monasteries, pagodas, and meditation centers where foreign meditators can grow in the Dhamma.
