Meditate and help others in a Buddhist meditation center close to Yangon, Myanmar

Hey, we are a meditation center located in Thanlyin, close to Yangon Myanmar, and where volunteers can practice meditation and donate their time, effort and energy to help others and do unlimited good deeds.

The center was established in 2008 by a local monk for the general benefit and it is taking care of the most crucial needs of the local community. It has grown to a small village offering refuge 24 hours a day, seven days a week without restrictions. It is a sanctuary for people from all class and regions who seek refuge or care and attention and/or the desire to practice meditation.

The center provides sanctuary for more than 3400 people including the aged, sick, disabled, homeless and helpless. It provides help without discrimination or restrictions.

Volunteers here in the center will have the unique opportunity to live, work and learn alongside monks and Burmese people in a way not possible on your typical travels.

Some of the activities are helping patients with general care, washing and physiotherapy. Also volunteers can help in the maintenance and building activities at the center. Teaching English to locals, making art projects, cooking, gardening and taking care of children is also something that we do.

Basically each volunteer is free to participate in every activity as they like or to learn a new skill. Volunteers can also propose and discuss new projects if they have any skills that can be useful for the benefit of the center and its residents.

There is the opportunity to follow guided meditation, learn more about Buddhism or practice on their own. Meditation and yoga teachers are always welcome to join and organize lessons for all volunteers.

Volunteers here in the center have the rare chance to join the monks collecting alms during the morning and have a unique experience about Buddhism and really interact with the local people.

Volunteers will be hosted in separate male and female dorms. Bed linen, security lockers and mosquito nets are provided.

Breakfast and lunch are provided by the center and a kitchen is available for the volunteers to prepare the dinner together. Free R/O filtered water is available free throughout the center. There are also several restaurants and shops in the center for any extra needs that you might have.

We request people who come here, even for a short time, to follow the monastic code of morality which includes:
  • Not harming any living being.
  • Not taking what is not given.
  • Not sexual misconduct.
  • Not harmful, harsh or false speech.
  • Not taking drugs or alcohol during your stay here.
