Sayadaw U Tejanyia

Postby dhamma follower » Fri Nov 13, 2009 12:22 pm

Dear all,

I just wanted to share with you the website of U Tejanyia Sayadaw, a Burmese meditation teacher who has become very popular and influential within the last 10 years. Here goes some introduction about him in an article :

In 2007, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, a Burmese monk, made his second visit to Western Dharma centers
in the U. S. I had the opportunity to hear his teachings in several places, to interview him and his
excellent translator, Ma Thet, and to speak with teachers and yogis about their experience of his
transformative approach to Dharma practice. Sayadaw’s particular way of teaching is now
influencing a number of Western vipassana teachers. He emphasizes practicing in a relaxed but
continuous manner rather than forcing one’s effort; opening the field of awareness to all
experience rather than beginning with a primary object to establish concentration; walking at a
regular rather than slow pace on retreat; not imposing a fixed retreat schedule; and focusing on
one’s relationship to objects rather than on the objects themselves. The integration of these
elements appears to strengthen the five spiritual faculties (indriya)—faith, energy, mindfulness,
concentration, wisdom—and deepen practice in everyday life

I hope the website can be beneficial at least for some ,

Best wishes,
