Yangon's most famous meditation centre was founded in 1947 by the late Mahasi Sayadaw, perhaps Myanmar’s greatest meditation teacher. The Mahasi Sayadaw technique strives for intensive, moment-to-moment awareness of every physical movement, every mental and physical sensation and, ultimately, every thought. The centre only accepts foreigners who can stay for at least one week. A dhamma (Buddhist teachings) talk in English (3pm; two hours) is open to anyone to attend.
