U Lakkhana

Updated : August 5, 2019

Sayadaw U Lakkhana (GBNF) is the Chief Resident Monk of Kya Swar Chaung in Sagaing Hills, which also has a medical clinic in addition to the vipassana center.

Dr. Robin Chan (St. Albert’s 64, Surgeon in Italy) and Sayadaw’s devotees from Hawaii have provided health care for eligible patients (monks, nuns and lay people).

Sayadaw spent one vasa at Tathagata Meditation Center (TMC) in San Jose. I volunteered as interpreter for one of his dhamma talks.

“The Dawn of Wisdom” covers the practice of Vipassna Satipatthana.
