programs at chuang yen monastery
Visited Chuang Yen monastery recently. Seem to remember that there is a meditation
program there during Thanksgiving week and weekend. I've called and e mailed the
monastery and have received no response. Anyone have information?
- I found this by looking on the Baus website under programs. Hope it is of help to you. : )
7- Day Retreat at CYM
7- Day Retreat offered in Carmel, NY
November 21 to November 28th, 2007
Meditation Retreat now confirmed to be held at the Chuang Yen Monastery in Carmel, NY.
sponsored by the Buddhist Association of the United States. This retreat is to be led by
Venerable Bhante Vimalaramsi and assisted by Sister Khema teaching Buddhist Meditation
directly from the Sutta texts in easy to understand small English words. Venerable
Vimalaramsi is the Representative for the United States to the World Buddhist Summit
Council in Kobe, Japan. He is a Maha Thera Monk who was ordained in the Burmese Forest
Tradition by the late Ven. U Silinanda. At this time he is starting an American line of
Buddhism called the American Buddhist Forest Tradition located through the Dhamma
Sukha Meditation Center in Annapolis, Missouri. Venerable teaches the very basic Tranquil
Wisdom Meditation of the Buddha which is a Samatha-Vipassana practice found in the Pali
Texts. The practice is gentle to learn with just a few simple changes from the usual
practice, and it leads to very clear insights which will be experienced if following the
instructions very closely. There will be daily Dhamma Talks each evening during the
retreat, and students will have a close communication opportunity with the teacher as he
monitors their progress each day.
Registration will be at 6:30 PM on November 21st, 2007 Orientation and instruction will
begin at 7:30 PM following registration.
