13 Sep Meditation, Lumbini Nepal
I travelled to a monastery in Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha in 563BCE where I had the great privilege of attending a one-week intensive meditation under the guidance of Venerable U Vivekananda. U Vivekananda has trained under Ven. Saydaw U Panditabhivamsa for almost 30 years. His teaching of Vipassana and loving kindness meditation is true to the name and the source. For anyone who seeks to experience, ‘in this very life’ (http://www.amazon.com/This-Very-Life-Liberation-Teachings/dp/0861713117) , an enduring encounter with your breathing self, this is surely one of the ultimate destinations.
