To help your meditation on skin and hair, Medi sent this lovely picture of the little hair mites that live in the pores of even the most well-groomed eye-lashes! Plus she tells me that about 1kg of our body weight is made up from bacteria! Probably can't live without them - so should we count them as self or not-self??? Makes you think!

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.

Help us offer the gift of Dhamma.

Donationsc

Satipanya has come a long way from a simple bungalow and small annexe. You can see the progress though a series of  photo albums.

We still have a way to go , such as - installing an air source heater, more solar panels, acquiring the copse of wood and the large shed that border the property.

All the better for us to offer the gift of Dhamma. Please, help us!
