Mindfulness is the way to the Deathless (Nibbana); unmindfulness is the way to Death. Those who are mindful do not die; those who are not mindful are as if already dead.

Urgent Support Needed–Provision of a Dwelling Place for Venerable Pa-Auk Sayadaw NEW

Dear Dhammafarers

In conjunction with our Opening Ceremony which has been scheduled to be held on 4th December 2016, we are honoured to have Venerable Pa Auk Sayadaw’s gracious presence to officiate the Ceremony.

We are also indeed very happy to announce that Venerable Pa-Auk Sayadaw will stay at our Meditation Center during his visit. As currently there’s no appropriate dwelling place for Venerable Sayadaw in our Meditation Center and with our Teacher, Venerable Sayalay Susila’s deepest respect to Venerable Sayadaw as well as her good intentions to provide Venerable Sayadaw a comfortable dwelling place, it is imperative that a new kuti be built.

However, after having assessed the extra land which is sloppy, rocky and filled with boulders, by the contractor and for cost saving purpose, we have decided to build an extension to the Teacher’s kuti so that Venerable Sayadaw could stay comfortably in the Teacher’s kuti. The Project is set to begin in July 2016 and we need to raise RM200,000.00 to fund the Project.

This is a golden opportunity for everyone to contribute towards a good cause and we earnestly urge you to participate in this very meritorious deed. We also would like to seek your help to spread the words to your contacts and networks so that the news could reach more people who may be interested.
