Pada tahun 1996, Sayalay Dipankara mulai mengajarkan Dhamma dan membimbing retreat meditasi di berbagai negara.

Pada tahun 2006, Sayalay Dipankara mendirikan Brahma Vihari Meditation Centre di Maymyo, Myanmar, dengan tujuan untuk menyelenggarakan retret meditasi jangka panjang berskala internasional.

Sampai dengan sekarang ini, Sayalay Dipankara sering diundang untuk membimbing retret meditasi di Amerika Serikat, Kanada, Inggris, Jerman, Australia, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Jepang, Korea, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Singapura, Indonesia, dll.

Dengan tujuan untuk penyebaran Dhamma dan penyelenggaraan retreat meditasi jangka panjang kepada masyarakat Indonesia dan masyarakat dari negara lainnya secara lebih luas, maka Brahma Vihari Meditation Centre Indonesia (BVMCI) didirikan pada bulan April 2014.


Brahma Vihari Meditation Centre located in Muar, Malaysia, was established in August 2015 by a group of Buddhists who appreciate deeply the teachings of the Buddha and aspire to support each other in the learning and practice of the Buddha’s teachings, especially in the area of meditation.

The society has been highly blessed with the strong support and close guidance from Sayalay Dipankara, an outstanding disciple of a great and highly respected meditation master, Ven. Pa-Auk Sayadaw of Myanmar.

From the linage of Sakyamuni Buddha, Sayalay teaches both Samatha (Concentration) and Vipassana (Insight) Meditation in a step-by-step manner. The objects of meditation commonly given to beginners are Anapanasati (Mindfulness of Breathing) or the Four Elements. The yogis will then be guided through the stages of purification and insight-knowledges. It is indeed a very precious and profound practice.

Sayalay Dīpaṅkara generously extends her good conditions to other practitioners by conceptualizing, designing, and overseeing the construction of what is now the Brahma Vihārī Meditation Centre at Maymyo, Myanmar. Meditators benefited from her deeper intentions and abided unknowingly in the conditions, true to the Visuddhimagga and the Tipiṭaka.


In devoting her energy in sharing the Dhamma worldwide, students are able to stay within Brahma Vihārī  for longer retreats through acts of dana. The rest of the year, Sayalay travels to the people who wish to learn, leaving little time for herself for self-practice and rest.


Sayalay teaches the forty kammaṭṭhāna leading to samādhi and vipassanā practice, and many other qualities a Buddhist needs to know and embody.
