Colorful Collection of Meditation Shawls 

all colors meditation shawls
Our new collection of meditation shawls looks as colorful as a field of spring flowers. Each shawl by itself is however suitably modest for meditation. We offer a whole range of single color shawls, and a few tricolor designs. Beautifully soft and made of 100% wool, they'll keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. 
The shawls come in dimensions ranging from 39.4" x 78.7" to 45.3" x 90.6"; all easily covering the average person from shoulder to knee. The whole collection can be found in the meditation accessories section on our website.

Collected Wheels, Pariyatti Edition

A meticulous volunteer proofreader and several correctors have taken on the extensive task of editing the entire Wheel Publication series. This series contains well over 400 booklets on topics related to Theravada Buddhism, ranging from the analytical philosophy of Abhidhamma to Buddhist reflections on today’s vital problems. The series also includes accurate annotated translations of the Buddha’s discourses from the Pali Canon.

Part of the original Wheel Publication Series. 
The individual Wheels, originally published by the Buddhist Publication Society (BPS), will all be reprinted in a series of Collected Wheels Volumes. We are proud to announce the release of Volumes 1 and 2! We hope you love the newly designed cover as much as we do, and that these series may be of benefit to many.
Volume 1 contains 13 titles including ‘Anatta and Nibbana’ and ‘Dependent Origination’; the 15 titles in Volume 2 include ‘Three Cardinal Discourses of the Buddha’ and ‘The Five Mental Hindrances and Their Conquest’. Wheel booklets were originally printed in 4.8" x 7.2'', but the Pariyatti Edition series measures 5.5" x 8.5'', in line with the quality standard we set for Pariyatti Editions*.
*Pariyatti Editions are quality prints, with ergonomic page size, easy-to-read font, and a sturdy spine.

Burma is sometimes called 'the golden land', due to the many golden pagodas all over the country. The image on the left, of the Mandalay Hill at sunset, was taken during the recent The Golden Path (TGP) pilgrimage through Myanmar (Burma). During two and a half weeks, participants visited and meditated at various sites related to the chain of Vipassana teachers in our tradition.
Photo albums from various previous pilgrimages, including the 2019 TGP,

Pāli Workshop in Costa Rica!

Taller de lengua pāli
We are excited to announce another introductory Pāli workshop in Spanish, added to the 2019 schedule for August 19 - 25 in Costa Rica!
Like Vipassana courses in our tradition, Pariyatti Pāli workshops are offered on a donation (dāna) basis; the teacher receives no remuneration for teaching, and all course expenses are covered by donations from previous students. Meals are prepared by volunteering Dhamma servers. Serving a Pāli workshop is a wonderful and rare opportunity to develop one's pāramīs, strengthen one's practice, and meet many Dhamma friends. During breaks servers can join classes and receive the benefit of learning the direct words of the Buddha.
Pali workshop location Costa Rica
Introductorio; 19 al 25 de agosto, 2019, Costa Rica
La meditación Vipassana será parte integral del taller de pāli, el cual incluye 3 meditaciones en grupo al día y los cánticos matutinos. Los participantes observarán al mínimo la noble palabra fuera de las horas de meditación. Habrá segregación completa de hombres y de mujeres durante el taller. El horario de cada día será similar al de los cursos de 10 días de Vipassana, aunque se alternarán los periodos de estudio y de meditación.
El taller será impartido por Adriana Patiño, Profesor Asistente, quien ha estudiado pāli en Tailandia, Vipassana Research Institute (VRI) de India y ha cursado otros talleres bajo la guía de su mentor S.N. Tandon, quien la alentó a profundizar en sus estudios de  pāli. Es así como Adriana ha adoptado el método de Tandonji, quien enfatiza en el contenido de los textos en lugar de enfocarse en la gramática. Durante los talleres, los participantes reciben una introducción a la gramática y correcta pronunciación del pāli, para después concentrar la mayor parte de su tiempo leyendo, recitando y comprendiendo el contexto de los suttas y material de los cursos de 10 días, tales como las formalidades y los cánticos matutinos.

Feedback from participants in the recent Pāli workshop conducted by Adriana Patiño in Malaysia (the first ever Pāli workshop conducted in South Asia!):
"Humorous and lively teaching style"

"... gradual teaching of Pāli language; the pronunciation and the easy, but important statements (such as the precepts) are taught first;
the daily chanting and the Suttas are taught later."
Adriana Patiño:
"Boundless gratitude arose in all of us who witnessed
the grace of Dhamma flow through the workshop."
