      Ajahn Bhaddanta Asabha, was born in Myanmar in 1911. In 1950, he took intensive vipassana meditation under Mahasi Sayadaw. In the same year, Mahasi Sayadaw appointed Ajahn Asabha as vipassana meditation master of the Mahasi Sasana Yeiktha Meditation Center (Rangoon). In 1952, Mahasi Sayadaw chose Ajahn Asabha to take on the responsibility to bring the practice of vipassana meditation to Thailand. Ajahn Asabha was Head Meditation Master at Vivek Asom Meditation Center (Chonburi, Thailand), where he taught vipassana meditation for 37 years. In 1999, Ajahn Asabha became President of Wat Bhaddanta Asabha Theravada and Head Meditation Master at Sommit Pranee Vipassana Meditation Center, where he now resides.

      Ajahn Somsak Sorado, a disciple of Ajahn Asabha, has been teaching vipassana meditation at Vivek Asom Meditation Center for over 5 years. He was in the United States on Buddhist missionary duties for 2 years and is now permanently stationed at Wat Bhaddanta Asabha Theravada.

      The retreat is widely open for both beginner and experienced meditators. On the retreat, all meditators are expected to keep silence at all times except when giving meditation reports. All meditators must keep the eight training precepts. Meditators need only bring conservative clothing (preferably white colored clothing), personal hygiene accessories and essential medication.
