A Face-to-Face society


Myanmar is very much a “real-time” culture, meaning actual interaction with people in person goes a much longer way than remote coordination. Face to face discussions can often resolve matters fairly quickly, while extensive discussions from a distance may not always be as effective. For this reason, for those wishing to stay at monasteries or make other requests, you will always be best served by presenting yourself in person to the Sayadaw and stating your wishes clearly at this time.
