Pa Auk Tawya Meditation

 

 DOCUMENTARY: 1h43 minutes 

 

In the Pa Auk Forest Monastery in Myanmar over a thousand people from all over the world are first taught 40 concentration techniques to be able to analyse the ultimate realities of  Mind and Matter (Nāma and Rūpa) at subatomic particle level by “their own direct experience”. They then proceed to practise Dependent Origination (Paticca-samuppāda) and Insight Meditation (Vipassanā) as described in the “Path of Purification” (Visuddhi Magga), a 1,500 year old summary of the Pāli texts: the legacy of the profound practical knowledge as originally taught by Gotama the Buddha.

 

For people in search of the truth it can be a life changing experience to learn about “the wisdom light” produced by a concentrated mind found in the heart base - the sixth sense - described in detail. 

 

Rare footage of the Most Venerable Pa Auk Tawya Sayadaw explaining Vipassanã and Dependent Origination in English, illustrated by an artist/architect (watercolour, animation) make this subtle and profound knowledge enjoyable to watch even by non practitioners.

Lost Links: Buddhism in Europe?

 

Did the Buddha's system of meditation reach Europe in the 6th century BC, is it possible that people meditated in Europe until the 12th century, only 800 years ago?

 

 

 

If the Phaistos Disk of Crete was made by Pythagoras in the 6th century BC during the lifetime  of the Buddha Gotama (c. 624 – 544 BC) in India, the objects found by 21-century archeologists begin to reveal an alternative history that was buried under the broken ruins found all over Europe.

What if the envoy sent by Ashoka under the guidance of an enlightened monk, the Venerable Maharakhitta, never left Europe but continued for the rest of their lives to teach at different sites?

 

Can the legacy of enlightened monks teaching meditation in Europe still be recognised?

 

Texts that uncover the traces of Buddhism, practiced in Europe since the 6th century BC during a period of up to 1,700 years, are found in the Lost Links section on this site.

Descriptions of the Phaistos disk, of the early Linear A and B scripts, how they developed into Scandinavian rune symbols, and how the same symbols were used on Pict stones in Scotland are accompanied by descriptions of breathtaking objects, found at the sites where meditation was practiced until the 10th and even as late as the 12th century. 

Evidence is found of advanced techniques such as Dependent Origination, analysis of the mind-materiality (when the body is investigated with the mind's eye as particles in space, also described by Plato in his dialogues), of Vipassanā and of Sixteen Insight Knowledges.

Was the Phaistos Disk made by Pythagoras?

 

Was the Phaistos Disk of Crete made by Pythagoras in the 6th century BC? Pythagoras (c. 580–500 BC) was a contemporary of the Buddha Gotama (c. 624 – 544 BC) in India, he was about 36 years old when the Buddha entered Parinibbāna. If his teachings of "metempsychosis" (knowledge of past lives), was based on Dependent Origination as taught by the Buddha, the symbols on the Phaistos disk and the Linear A and Linear B scripts were "ideograms" to teach meditation step by step, and not the lost phonetic alphabets of ancient Greek dialects as currently thought.
