Satipanya Buddhist Trusta

We run retreats devoted to developing contemplative living and vipassana insight meditation in the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma.

Satipanya is located in the UK, in Powys, Wales, south of Shrewsbury and near the Shropshire border.

Satipanya Buddhist Trust is grounded in the Buddhist Tradition of Theravada as practised in South-East Asia.

“Satipanya is a combination of two words:
sati means awareness, mindfulness and panya intuitive intelligence.
These are the faculties of the Enlightened Mind.”

eService at Satipanya

Satipanya depends on an economy of dana – freely given offerings.

An offering can be of wealth and of time.

The Buddha said, ‘Whatever a teacher can do out of compassion for his students, I have done for you.’ After his awakening, the Buddha spent the rest of his life teaching.

Service then is part of the path as Right Action. Wisdom, translated into Right Attitude, searches for a way to express itself. In so doing the heart grows in love, compassion, joy, equanimity and other social virtues.
