Guiding Teacher: Bhikkhu Dhammagavesi Thero is an Indian Citizen who started his spiritual journey in 2013 at Wat Pah Nana Chat in Thailand where he stayed for 1 ½ yrs. He learned a lot about Buddha's teachings but found that there is something lacking in the meditation which didn’t allow any further progress. His initial training in meditation was through 10 Vipassana courses in Mumbai, India,.

In 2016 he discovered Bhante Vimalaramsi recovered an approach to the Buddha Dhamma and meditation which is easy to understand and immediately effective He left Thailand to retreat with him in Bali in 2016. He continued developing his practice by ordaining under Bhante Vimalaramsi as a Novice monk and was advised by him to continue with Ven. Khanti Khema in Sri Lanka. In 2017, he took his higher ordination in Penang, Malaysia under Bhante Vimalaramsi during his Malaysian tour that year. He then arranged to remain in Sri Lanka for a further period of time until a permanent location could develop in India.

As Co-Director for the Asian project for Dhamma Sukha India, he assisted the birth of the Samatha-Vipassana Trust in India, and greatly helps with organizing retreats and tours throughout Asia and India for Bhante Vimalaramsi and Rev Sister Khema. He teaches online and coaches students regularly. His intention is to return to India, when the time comes to encourage and train future students and teachers in TWIM practice.

What to expect from these retreats: You will be taught how to practice Metta to relieve suffering with the intention of moving down the path to experience levels of liberation of the mind. If you follow the instructions closely that which you hear in the Suttas of the Buddha, you will feel some relief. You will have a daily interview with the teacher and an evening Q&A class and a Dhamma Talk each day. This supports your progress to occur swiftly and clearly in your practice. SVT wants your experience to be a time you enjoy and we hope you will feel more like smiling when you leave and practice in the future. Translators will be available for additional help following Dhamma talks as necessary. All your Dhamma and Meditation related questions will be answered.
