Time: 10.00am to 11.00am
Venue: SJBA Dana Hall
The Special Puja will be led by Sayadaw U Rewata
Sayādawgyi U Paṇḍitābhivaṃsa has contributed tremendously to SJBA’s early Dhammaduta effort. Many SJBA’s early members learned the Dhamma, especially vipassana meditation from the Venerable Monks coming from his Paṇḍitārāma Meditation Centre, Yangon, Myanmar.
Sayadawgyi U Panditabhivamsa has been one of the foremost masters of Vipassana meditation. He has taught many, in the East and West, the Mahāsi tradition of Vipassana meditation.
At the age of 20, Sayadaw was ordained as a Bhikkhu on April 25,1992.
In 2010, Sayadaw stayed in Thailand to teach Vipassana meditation for students and monks about 1 year.
From 2013 to March 2016, Sayadaw stayed in Lunas Hermitage, Kedah.
