"135 Years in Dhamma Land": A Short Clip




SN Goenka made one final pilgrimage to Burma, the land of his birth, in December 2012. A feature-length documentary of the visit has since been produced and is available throughout Myanmar today.

This is a short clip that shows the great meditation teacher being introduced to a capacity crowd in the National Theatre in Yangon (a live feed was shown to the several hundred local Burmese who sat outside in the parking lot to listen). The speaker shares the Goenka family history, and then questions are asked to Sayagyi U Goenka that members of the audience submitted in writing.
