At 6.50pm on 15th Nov 2010, all stitches are completely removed from Sayadaw's head. He is physically and mentally well.

Sayadaw U Pannathami had head operation at Westmead Private Hospital on Tue, 9th Nov 2010 to remove lesion.

It went successful and he is recovering very well. He will be discharged from Hospital on Tue (16th Nov) or Wed. Thanks so much for all your support and suggestion.

On Wednesday, 3rd November, Sayadaw U Pannathami was admitted to Westmead Hospital in Sydney. He apparently had a seizure like activity on early hour of that morning (i.e. after the night he came back from Kathina Robes ceremony in Melbourne).

He then had a CT scan where he was found to have a lesion. As a result, he was scheduled to go operation on 9th Nov as to remove it.

We pray Sayadaw will regain better health and continue Vipassana teaching.

Dhamma Experience in Panditarama Sydney

Sunday, 13 June 2010 10:02

Here I am, having left the land of the Buddha, Burma to arrive thousands miles away to the country of crocodiles and kangaroos. Having crossed borders and oceans, I’m now in Sydney, Australia. Seems like another world. But surprisingly, the atmosphere that I feel at the place I’m staying is very much the same as the one I have just left a few hours ago. The same smile of the Buddha which greets me and fills my heart with much joy and peace; the same kindness stemming from the heart of the Burmese people, food and language.

No wonder, I just came from Panditarama, Bago-Burma to Panditarama, Sydney-Australia. And invited by Sayadaw U Pannathami to stay here a short while, I rejoice to see that such a place dedicated to the happiness and peace of beings exists here, in a Western country like Australia; and that there are kind, devoted, generous and faithful people like the Burmese community who keep on supporting the Sangha. Such a place where spiritual qualities and genuine happiness can be developed and build up is indeed so precious in this modern and materialistic world.


Easter Meditation Retreat 2010 (2- 5 April 2010)

Thursday, 15 April 2010 11:07

The Four days Easter Meditation Retreat was officially conducted from 2-5 April at PSMC. It managed to attract a total of 26 Yogis. There were 8 men Yogis and 18 women yogis overall. Thus, 5 yogis had completed the four days retreat on daily basis.

The centre was happy to see the Yogis to practice the meditation seriously throughout the retreat session. It was the best rewards to the effort by volunteers and donors who were keen to help and donate food to make the retreat a success.

There were chanting and Dhamma talks during the retreat. We welcome our Dhamma friends to participate in the session though you are unable to attend meditation as the yogis in future retreat. Most of us have beneficiated so much from the Dhamma Talk and we know it is something worth to bring home and share with friends from time to time.

The committee was thankful to all the volunteers and Dhamma friends for their support and help. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!

PSMC planning to be upgraded to 2-storey building

Saturday, 13 March 2010 10:52

As per decision of Sayadaw and committee members, PSMC will soon be upgraded to 2-storey building.  Here’s our initial plan:

  • We will demolish the existing front building, so we are planning to build 2-storey house with 4-5 bed-rooms for the monks. (subject to council approval)
  • We are going to have a new building at the back to accommodate Yogis and it will include new kitchen, plenty of storage rooms, dining room, etc (subject to council approval)
  • We will also invite Panditarama Sayadaw Gyi from Yangon to visit Australia this year to share our upgrading plan.

We had seen about 10 displayed homes so far.

We’d like to hear your feedback, ideas and recommendations on how we should approach this goal. Please feel free to drop us the comment or come in person to discuss your thoughts.
