|Vipassana Meditation Retreat|
Sayadaw’s teaching differs from the general Vipassana meditation that is practised in Myanmar. Sayadaw’s style of teaching and approach is dynamic – an evolving process based on his own experiences and his recognition of difficulties yogis face in their practice. He believes that awareness must first be directed to the presence of defilements in the meditating mind.
Sayadaw does not emphasize any postures or specific method of walking meditation. He believes it is more important that the mind is aware with understanding while meditating. He also wants to help practitioners possess skills which they can continue to apply throughout their lives in the absence of a teacher.

Sayadaw U Tejaniya began his Buddhist training as a young teenager in Burma under the late Shwe Oo Min Sayadaw. After a career in business and life as a householder, he was ordained a fullfledged monk in 1996. He teaches meditation at Shwe Oo Min Dhamma Sukha Forest Meditation Centre in Yangon, Myanmar.
Sayadaw’s relaxed demeanour and easy sense of humour belies a commitment to awareness that he encourages his students to apply in every aspect of their lives. His earlier life as a householder gives him rare insight into the challenges faced by his lay students. His books, Don’t look down on the defilements, they will laugh at you, Awareness alone is not enough and Dhamma everywhere: welcoming each moment with awareness + wisdom aptly characterise his teachings – accessible and true to the traditional teachings of the Buddha.
