"Everybody in the world wants to live in peace and happiness.
This is the reason why people are seeking the true path which leads them to the cessation of suffering.
The Lord Buddha discovered it and taught us the path over 2500 years ago."
Chanmyay Yeiktha (meaning 'Peaceful Hermitage') is a Buddhist meditation centre where the teachers are senior Buddhist monks who teach mainly Vipassana meditation in Myanmar and English languages. Anyone who takes keen interest in mental development can practise meditation here, regardless of sex, race, nationality and religion. Everyone wants to live in peace and happiness, so everyone tries to achieve peace that escape from the hardness and troubles. This is the only way to escape from those. This is Vipassana meditation. For Vipassana meditation, need at least ten days for this.
