Venerable Pannyavaro, President B.D.E.A.
Ven.Pannyavarois an Australian Theravada Buddhist monk who has devoted his life to the meditational aspects of the Buddha’s teachings. During his monastic training, he practiced under several meditation masters, including the Ven. Sayadaw Ujanaka of Chanmyay Yeiktha, Burma, who is the foremost disciple of the renowned Burmese meditation master, the late Ven. Mahasi Sayadaw.
During more than 25 years of training, he has studied and practiced meditation in all the major Theravada Buddhist countries, including long periods of intensive practice of the Satipatthana-Vipassana meditation at the Mahasi Sayadaw centre in Burma.
He is also the founder of BuddhaNet which is the premiere Buddhist website established in the year 1992. Current user statistics for the website are 830,000 files(6.1 gigabytes) served per day which equates to approximately six million individuals viewing the website per year.
Vipassana or insight meditation, is above all, an experiential practice, based on the systematic and balanced development of a precise and focused awareness. By developing this awareness we gain greater insight into the nature of life and its experiences and thus resulting in achieving greater wisdom. We invite you to join us in this meditation retreat with the skillful guidance of Venerable Pannyavaro and further progress in your practice. Sadu Sadu Sadu
