The Sound of a Wooden Gong at a Burmese Monastery


We intend the upcoming Burma Dhamma podcast to give not only voice to the people and practitioners of the Golden Land, but also the actual sounds of Burmese monasteries, virtually bringing the listener into this rarified environment as much as possible! So today our intrepid sound engineer, Ko Thar Nge, spent the morning at a Burmese monastery getting just the right sound of the wooden hammer striking the "own maung," the ubiquitous wooden noise-maker that every Burmese monastery must have to call monks together. These ambient sounds of Burmese monastic life will be featured between interviews and discussion, bringing the listener closer to the experience of practice and renunciation.

This week is another packed schedule of interviews-- Alan Clements, Ashin Chanda, and U Sarana have all confirmed. Three interesting guests with much to share about their own life and practice of Dhamma in Myanmar.

Of the interviews already completed, we are nearing a release date, and hope to have them out in the next week. Stay tuned for more to come!
