This region of Burma has a special connection with Sayadaw U Pandita’s early spiritual training. He first studied as a young monk at the nearby Mahabodhi Forest Monastery. For many years, Sayadaw
U Pandita thought of building a forest meditation center in this area, and due to generous donations from Sayadaw’s local and international devotees, Panditarama Forest Meditation Center has become a
major practice center for both foreign and Burmese yogis.
The meditation center is open year-round for meditation practice.
From December 1st to January 31st, the Forest Center conducts the annual Sixty Day Special Retreat which hosts over 100 meditators from around the world for a silent, intensive meditation retreat.
