Guidelines for Reporting at One Day Meditation Programs – In Sinhala (සිංහල භාෂාවෙන්)



 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.

The web page also contains two sets of invaluable Dhamma sermons conducted by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero. These will immensely help the yogis to understand the meaning of Mindfulness Meditation as enumerated by the Lord Buddha.
