Before me is a volume of an 1600-page work of art in Burmese, elaborating the different techniques for vipassana by 81 well revered Maha Theras in Myanmar. Some of them may be quite familiar to interested foreigners: Ledi, Webu, Taung Pu Lu, Mahasi, Mogok, Pa Uk, Shwe Oo Min, etc. (many great next generation teachers instructing similar methods are not included in the tome, if they are in the same traditions, for example U Pandita, and Chanmyay Sayadaw of Mahasi tradition).
There's a technique by a strange named called "a Maha Thera who don't want his name to be known". However, his technique is not strange: simply based on Maha Satipatthana sutta.
One of them, after illuminating the technique to the public at times in the retreats in or near the forests, "ran away" from the crowd to some unknown forest and his where-about is currently unknown.
Some digested the whole Tipitaka & accompanied commentaries into heart. Some was abhidhamma genius.
For some of them jhana first; for the others, not.
Some instructed in the light of suttas; some, visuddhimagga.
Some may start from anapana, some from four elements; some from illuminating right-view and DO first, ... etc.
But, "almighty eternal citta" is no where to be found.

Is there good Vinaya and meditaion traditions apart from Pa Auk in Burma ?
Is there good Vinaya and meditaion traditions apart from eternal-citta believers in Thailand ?
To answer your question, Bante
, being just an ordinary lay man, my answer is just ..... "there may probably be such traditions" in Myanmar.
