In 2003 Bhante Vimalaramsi founded the Dhamma Sukha Meditation Center in Annapolis, Missouri, two hours south of St. Louis in the Ozark Mountains. Having practiced meditation for 12 1/2 years in Asia, he returned to the United States and brought what he had found. Basically he had found a practice all people could learn to relieve suffering in life. He had already written his first book , The anapanasati Sutta: a Practical guide for Breathing Meditation. He continued to write A Guide to Tranquil Wisdom Insight Meditation, Breath Of Love , and Moving Dhamma Volume One. The he followed these with Life is Meditation Meditation is Life. Bhante's students credit him with reviving the most direct path to wisdom and awakening as taught by the Buddha, by teaching a very simple but highly comprehensive and effective practice.
