KYUNPIN MEDITATION CENTER
Kyunpin Monastery and Meditation Center is a small meditation center on the beautiful banks of the Irrawaddy River in Sagaing Region, Myanmar.
This monastery is more than one hundred years old, but the meditation center was fully established in March 2008 by the Venerable Guiding Teacher Kyunpin Sayādaw (U Jaṭila), a former meditation teacher at Paṇḍitārāmā, one of the most famous insight meditation centers which follows the great lineage of the late Venerable Mahāsī Sayādaw of Myanmar.
The Mahāsī method involves mindfulness of the body, sensations, mind, and general objects such as seeing, hearing, tasting, and smelling.
The primary objects of meditation are the rise and fall of the abdomen in sitting meditation and the movement of the feet in walking meditation.
“The gift of Dhamma is indeed the noblest gift”.
Food, accommodations, and basic needs are entirely supported through the principle of generosity, donations from our Dharma friends. There are no set fees. Monetary donation helps maintain and further develop the center so that the center can continue to spread the Buddha’s teaching and help prolong the sāsanā.
In order to carry on the retreats in the future, we need main sponsors from Myanmar and abroad. If you would like to be the main sponsor for any retreat, we will be most appreciative.
You can donate for:
- Daily food and utilities
- Permanent Food Fund
- Permanent Medical Fund
- Water and electricity system maintenance
- Construction and building maintenance
- Meditation Scholarship
- Kathina Offerings
