"Exploring the Lineage" pilgrimage in Burma, 2019

Dates for the 2019 winter pilgrimage "Exploring the Lineage" has been announced: January 14-31, with potential pre- add-ons of Yangon and Golden Rock, and post add-ons of Bagan and the Inle Lake region.

In partnership with Dhamma Yatra, this pilgrimage will concentrate exclusively on those sites connected to the four principle figures in the lineage of S.N. Goenka: Ledi Sayadaw, Saya Thet Gyi, Webu Sayadaw, and Sayagyi U Ba Khin. Pilgrims will have the opportunity to visit monasteries, pagodas, caves, meditation centers, kutis, and more related to the lives of these four great meditation masters. This will include sites where they were born, ordained as monks, practiced intensive meditation, gave discourses, taught meditators, and where they passed away. Pilgrims will have the opportunity to meditate, give dana, and take photographs, and participate in Question & Answer sessions with senior monks. Each site tour will be given in comprehensive detail, featuring history, anecdotes, stories, and more; the result of nearly five years of intensive research. This is the ideal pilgrimage for those who want to understand the lives and works of these four great figures!

Please note: every day two hours will be set aside for meditation time, often taking place at the sites we will be visiting.
