Exploring the Lineage: Monastic Edition
From December 18, 2018 to January 4, 2019, we will be offering an 18-day pilgrimage entitled "Exploring the Lineage: Monastic Edition." The total cost for this pilgrimage is $2,100.
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!
Please note: all overnights on this pilgrimage will be in monasteries or nunneries. Also, every day two hours will be set aside for meditation time, often taking place at the sites we will be visiting.
