Saya Thetgyi: a talk by Patrick Given-Wilson

published 2 years ago by podcasts@pariyatti.org

"When Saya Thet was born and growing up few would have dreamt that this small boy from a poor, rural village—who had little education and knew a little Pali—would become the first householder teacher in this tradition since the time of the Buddha." In this video, Patrick Given-Wilson explores the life of Saya Thetgyi who became a critical link between the monk Ven. Ledi Sayadaw and Sayagyi U Ba Khin in helping to establish a tradition of vipassana householder teachers.
