Theravada Buddhist monk at Bago at the forest monastery (Myanmar)
Buddhism shapes completely the Burmese society. This Buddhist monk
belongs to the Theravada Buddhism , called on a very pejorative way,
the "small vehicle ".
Théravada means " language of the ancient". Théravada
Buddhism is very strict
and conforms itself solely to the teachings dispensed
2 500 years by Buddha
and unaltered until now. This monk is one of the
and follower of the Théravada teaching. It is
possible for a
foreigner to learn meditation in specialized centers or to
teaching in a monastery. Ananda Travel Yangon helps you
freely to find a center of meditation or one
