I, Sachin Gudas, Got education in native place with spiritual inclination through parents and
family members through visiting Temples and praying. I have been reciting mantras from
childhood and continued the same till 2011.
In 2011, on advice of my brother Savan Kumar Gudaas I started a spiritual journey in
meditation by attending a 10 Day Vipassana Retreat at Dhamma Khetta, Hyderabad.
Subsequently continued practice of Vipassana Meditation and attended 3 Nos - 10 Day
Vipassana Meditation Retreats at Nizamabad, Igatpuri and Hyderabad for a period from
2011-2019. In the course of practice I have started learning about meditation aspects.
In 2019, my brother has Suggested for practicing TWIM as taught by Bhante Vimalaramsi
having relax and smile steps, from 2019 to till date continuing practice. Got inspiration from
dhamma talks of Bhante Vimalaramsi, Delson Armstrong, Ajahn Dtun and other teachings
from Sangha and Dhamma friends. During the course of practice I have noticed changes in
habitual tendencies and changed the way of looking at things. TWIM practice is making
happy to self and all beings. I am gratitude to all TWIM teachers, Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha
and all beings.
In 2018, got married and blessed with Baby Saachi, as the baby started growing we have
known that she is having a Genetic Disease with which her health is deteriorating. Presently,
she is having G Tube feeding. Due to TWIM practice, we were able to understand Life's birth
and death cycles and today we are Happy even with the Baby Genetic Disease.
I have attended 1 No. 10 Day physical retreat at Yavatmal, Maharastra, India with Bhante
Ananda and also attended 1 No. - 10 Day online retreat.
I have been implementing TWIM practice in daily life by keeping a smile, practicing
generosity and sharing Happiness to all. I am looking forward to guiding this Dhamma for the
benefit of all beings.
Wishing Happiness to all beings
