How to Tie a Longyi
On the December 2013 pilgrimage, foreign meditators are instructed in the art of the Burmese longyi-tying at the Yuzana Hotel in Yangon, as the pilgrimage started. For those meditators who would similarly like a lesson in how to wear the Burmese garment, sessions will be scheduled this coming winter. After the longyi-tying lesson, full pilgrimages will resume. Registration is now available, see here for more details. Or, this recent post describes the coming pilgrimage opportunity in further detail.
