An Auspicious Site for Meditation

A European monk sits in the San Kyaung building on the Patipatti side at Webu Monastery in Ingyinbin, Upper Burma. This was the building where for decades Webu Sayadawgyi himself would reside and receive visitors, and also the very site where he went into parinibanna in 1977. Precious old photos and Buddha images still adorn the old two story building, and recently the Pariyatti yatra group held a one day sitting on these sacred grounds.

The inspiring presence of Webu Sayadawgyi stares back in encouragement as the reality of in-breath, out-breath is observed.
