My gratitude goes to the following
For allowing me access to the great wisdom, creativity, resilience and determination and for handing me the answers to so many problems during the making of all that I do.
For allowing me the freedom to work without disturbance, for cooking, cleaning and caring for me in so many other ways. This allowed me the extra free time to work on this website and everything else that I do.
The Vipassana lineage of Teachers
Stretching from The Buddha to my teacher S.N. Goenka for teaching the Dhamma and spreading Vipassana meditation around the world. My abilities and capabilities, mental and physical would not have come to light had it not been for the practicing of Vipassana meditation, and the practicing of Vipassana meditation would not have been possible had it not been for the great and compassionate efforts of the linage of teachers to spread Dhamma across the world.

Webu Sayadaw – My Greatest Inspiration
I first saw this photograph in the Siyagi U Ba Khin Journal, which is somewhat of an elementary book for serious Vipassana meditators. I was hypnotized by the extravagantly Glorious appearance of absolute serenity radiating from their faces, and especially off the face of Webu Sayadaw. Every particle in his face lies in complete peace, without even the minutest trace of tension. Webu Sayadaw was known for being an Arahant, a Fully Liberated being.
This photograph was given to me on my 28th birthday by my ex girlfriend. I had always told her that this photograph touches me deeply and that Webu Sayadaw is my greatest source of inspiration for practicing Vipassana meditation. So without my knowledge she went through a great deal of trouble of obtaining that picture, enlarging it and framing it. It still hangs in my bedroom right above by bed.
Whenever I need to remember the Truth, whenever I need to recall what it is that is really important in life and what is the Ultimate Goal for each of us, I look at it. No words can explain what it does to me.
You can click on the photo to read more about Webu Sayadow at Wikipedia or you can go to the international Vipassana website in order to learn more about the technique of meditation and lineage of teachers, including Siyagi U Ba Khin.
