Pilgrimage by Day, Monastery by Night
From December 18-January 4, Myanmar Pilgrimage will offer an 18-day pilgrimage in which every night will be spent at a Burmese monastery. This is the first time that such an extended Dhamma trip in Myanmar has ever been offered entirely at monasteries, giving meditators a unique opportunity to never step foot outside of this protected, special Dhamma environment.
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 ultimately they passed away. Pilgrims will have the opportunity to meditate, give dana, take photographs, and participate in Question & Answer sessions with senior monks. At each site, pilgrims will enjoy comprehensive tours, which will include local 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!
