About Venerable Pannyavaro:
Venerable Pannyavaro is an Australian Buddhist monk who has devoted his life to the meditational aspects of the Buddha's teachings. He practiced under several meditation masters in Sri Lanka and Burma, including Venerable Sayadaw U Janaka of Chanmyay Meditation Centre, Rangoon, who is the foremost disciple of the renowned Burmese meditation master, the late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw. He later received full ordination at Wat Borvornivet in Bangkok under Venerable Phra Nyanasamvarva, the Sangha Raja of Thailand.
Venerable is the resident teacher, founder, and abbot of Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery and Community Retreat Centre in Northern New South Wales, Australia. He also gives retreats and teachings from time to time in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
As a Western meditation teacher, Venerable Pannyavaro naturally empathises with the concerns and needs of meditators in their own culture. His long training and life experience combine to bring a practical in-depth approach to the teaching of insight (Vipassana) meditation in contemporary life.
