Guidelines for Reporting at One Day Meditation Programs

Young Burmese Monks studying under the teacher


 Guidelines for Reporting at One Day meditation programs are given in Sinhala. All Yogis have to develop the skill in reporting their Mindfulness meditation experience to the teacher. This is a basic skill the yogi has to develop patiently and gradually over time as it immensely helps to achieve progress in the Path.

A document to be used by the regular Yogis attending One Day programs was finalized in May 2016. This is a valuable document to both the beginners and even experienced yogis.

This is provided as a PDF document. Please click the following link to open/download it.

The above document will be helpful to understand how to do the Reporting to the teacher. However, It will become even more valuable if the Yogi could understand as to what the teacher is expecting of the student as a result of Mindfulness Meditation practice. Two sets of invaluable Dhamma talks conducted by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero is provided below for that purpose.

The first set Dhamma talks are essential to the Yogis to understand Kama Ogha (කාම ඕඝ), Bhava Ogha (භව ඕඝ), Dhitti Ogha (දිට්ඨි ඕඝ). The Maha Thero expertly guide the Yogi explaining the true meaning of Buddha Dhamma and the meaning behind the Yogi’s practice of Mindfulness meditation. These invaluable talks are in Sinhala.
