Introduction to Pāli

Exploring the Path

 

Saṅgha Dāna to commemorate 

the first year of S.N. Goenka's passing


Over the decades, Goenkaji sponsored many Sangha Danas to express his profound gratitude and respect for the Sangha. It is traditional in Buddhist countries to offer a Sangha Dana in honor of a respected, revered elder or loved one on the one-year anniversary of their death. It is with this attitude that the Teachers and students of Vipassana meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka participated in this Maha Sangha Dana on September 14th, 2014 held at The Dhammakaya International Meditation Center, located in Azusa, California.


The Dhammakaya International Meditation Center has a large, spacious building and compound and was an ideal location to hold the Sangha Dana for Bhikkhus and Bhikkhunis and the many guests. It is the same place where Goenkaji performed a similar sized Sangha Dana during the 2002 Meditation Now Tour. Although this site is not associated with our Vipassana tradition, the Teachers and students of Vipassana as taught by Goenkaji were very grateful to be permitted to perform Maha Sangha Dana at Dhammakaya again, this time in honor of our beloved Teacher.

The Art of Dying
by S.N. Goenka and others


The art of Dying

This collection of writings—Goenkaji’s explanations of the teaching of the Buddha, the Buddha’s scriptural verses, poetical stories of monks and nuns from the time of the Buddha, accounts from fellow meditators—is born of the acceptance of the truth of suffering. It contains inspiring examples of people gaining strength and a taste of freedom through their practice, and demonstrates convincingly the efficacy of the Path, the way out of misery.  

These stories not only help to sustain and strengthen established Vipassana meditators in their quest, but also to encourage others searching for peace and understanding to take up the practice of getting to “know thyself” truly, on an experiential level—to develop their own wisdom.

Join Pariyatti on a Pilgrimage to India and Nepal

Pariyatti Pilgrimages

Pariyatti is offering pilgrimages in Nov-Dec 2014 and Jan-Feb 2015.

These pilgrimage allow Vipassana meditators to visit a variety of sites associated with the life of the Buddha. We will visit the sites of the Buddha's birth, enlightenment, first teachings, death, and more. 

While the sites themselves are inspiring, it is the opportunity to practice the Buddha's teachings that we hope will make this a valuable experience. There will be opportunities for meditation throughout the pilgrimage, both at the various sites associated with the Buddha's life, as well as at several Vipassana centers.

About Pariyatti

The Buddha

The Buddha

New from Pariyatti Publishing

Far from being a recluse concerned only with an inner mystical experience, the Buddha always involved himself closely in the social and political world of his time. If he preached detachment from many of the things by which ordinary men are tied, he did so as a means of enriching life rather than escaping from it. 

Trevor Ling describes the India into which the Buddha was born, recounts what is known of his life and the development of his teaching, and then follows the course of Buddhism through succeeding centuries in India and Sri Lanka. His admiration for the Buddha and his teaching and for the civilization which embodied it makes this a warm and stimulating book.

The Requisites of Enlightenment

Picture of Requisites of Enlightenment

In recent years, many people in the West have been exposed to the teachings of the Buddha through the practice of Vipassana meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka. Mr. Goenka was born in Burma (now Myanmar) where he learned this technique of meditation from Sayagyi U Ba Khin, who had in turn been taught by Saya Thetgyi. Saya Thetgyi had the fortune to learn Vipassana from the highly respected scholar and meditator monk Ledi Sayadaw. 

As Vipassana meditation in the tradition of Ledi Sayadaw begins to spread in the West, we are fortunate to begin to gain broader access to his writings as well.

In The Requisites of Enlightenment, the first of Ledi Sayadaw's books to be published and widely distributed in the West, he explains the bodhipakkiya dhamma: the 37 requisites of enlightenment. This book is valuable to those interested in understanding the Buddha’s teaching at a deeper level, while providing the inspiration to continue walking step by step on the path.

Also available as an eBook (mobi, epub, PDF).

                            Dhamma Wheel

"[...] Sayagyi U Ba Khin used to say that pariyatti (theory) and paṭipatti (practice) must go together.  Together they are like two wheels of a cart and both must be equal in size and strength if the cart is to move smoothly.  With these two wheels of pariyatti and paṭipatti work diligently and travel swiftly on the path of Dhamma." —S.N. Goenka
