U Goenka's return to his native land of Burma was celebrated by thousands of Indians, Burmese, and other foreign yogis who converged towards the Golden Land to honor and take part in this historic occasion. Dhamma Joti organized a 10 day yatra (pilgrimage) for nearly 1000 meditators from around the world, and U Goenka gave several speeches to large audiences and led one group sitting at the famed Shwedagon Pagoda.

Many photographers and news crews filming U Goenka
