The Support Network for Women Renunciants in Malaysia and Singapore has been established to help improve the conditions for Theravada nuns residing in these countries (regardless of nationality).

The Network has been established by monastics and lay devotees working together with the intention of bringing women renunciants and their lay supporters into closer contact, so that their monastic lives can be adequately sustained.

The Network also intends to do educational work amongst the local populations to improve their understanding of the history of women renunciants, and their vital role in the life of the Dispensation (Sasana) of the Buddha.

Основная задача этого сайта - информировать о приездах и проводящихся ретритах (практических курсах) учителей, учеников Ланг По Чаа.
Сейчас еще не так много переведено книг с учениями монахов и монахинь этой традиции на русский язык . Мы собираемся по-немногу восполнять этот пробел. Кому это интересно – присоединяйтесь!

Нашими общими усилиями уже были организованы приезды и ретриты в Россию и Украину учителей: Аджана Сумедо, Аджана Амаро, Аджана Джаясаро, Аджана Вимало, Аджана Ньянарато, Аджана Ньянадассано и Аджана Титамеды.

The meditation practiced at the centre is Vipassana Meditation or Mindfulness Meditation based on Sattipatthana Sutta and the Mahasi Sayadaw method. Meditators meditate from 4.00h a.m. until 9.00h p.m. Sitting and walking meditation are alternated. The rest of the time will be filled with an attentive and slow performance of daily routines such as getting up, washing, getting dressed, eating, taking a shower and so on. It is very important to create a continuous and uninterrupted attentiveness at all times and during every possible activity.

The instructions, interviews, and Dhamma talks of Sayadaw U Indaka are translated into English. When Ven. Virañani is present, she can provide instruction in English, and also understands French. When Ariya Baumann is at the centre, she gives talks in English and can also offer one-on-one instructions in Swiss German, German, and French.

Founded by George Haas in 2003 and named the Best Online Buddhist Meditation by Los Angeles Magazine in 2011, Mettagroup uses Vipassanā, or insight meditation, as a way to help students live a meaningful life. Drawing from 2500-year-old Buddhist teachings and John Bowlby's Attachment Theory, the Mettagroup techniques serve as a model of how to connect with other people, and how to be completely yourself in relationships with others and with work.

Commonly referred to as "mindfulness," Vipassanā meditation is focused on living more peacefully, compassionately and wisely. Derived from the Theravada school of Buddhism, the techniques are widely acknowledged as effective ways to manage pain, stress, compulsiveness and are often used in conjunction with psychotherapy.

Most Mettagroup students begin with Morning Meditation, a guided meditation held via conference call six days a week with founding teacher George Haas. In addition, we offer several intensive courses throughout the year, as well as multiple retreats every year and ongoing one-on-one mentoring with experienced teachers. Read more in our classes section, or sign up for our newsletter and we'll let you know about courses and special events.
