Meditation in Chiang Mai

If you are going to Chiang Mai, there is a relatively unadvertised and quiet way to spend some close time with a well respected Sayadaw from Burma. The location is in a Doctor’s house, with Sayadaw U Thuzana who is visiting Chiang Mai for the Rains Retreat period. We are also hoping Sayadaw will stop in Bangkok and give a talk for us in early October. Received information is as follows:

Sayadaw U Sujana (U Thuzana) is the disciple of Ovadacariya Sayadawgi U Panditabhivamsa of Panditarama in Myanmar. Previously, he was the meditation teacher (Kammatthanacariya) in Malaysia Buddhist Meditation Centre (MBMC), Penang, Malaysia. He speaks English well and teaches vipassana meditation, based on the Mahasi Saydaw techniques (noting on rising and falling of the abdomen) and the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
