About The Course Instructor
'Serve to be perfect. Be perfect to serve'
Vajiro Richard Chia learned Buddhism and Abhidhamma from the late Venerable Narada Thera, one of the greatest Sri Lankan Buddhist scholar of the 20th century. He was formally trained under the late Venerable Amatha Gavesi Thera of Sri Lanka on Samatha and Vipassana meditation. He has deep interests in the Buddha Dhamma and has over 20 years of teaching Buddhist teachings and meditation techniques. Vajiro has a clear and straightforward approach to Buddha's teachings and decided to share this approach with his students. He is able to bring out the dynamism of Buddhism, and its relevance, thus brings the message of Buddha to all in its simplest, yet powerful form.
Using such a simple approach, Vajiro has developed and taught meditation instructions to many and guided them through the levels of concentration and stages of insight knowledge. Many have described his sessions as "effective and efficient" and found his coaching method helped them to develop the path to REALISE the teachings of the Buddha. Vajiro estimates that he requires at least 20 meditation sessions to help one develops into deeper levels of concentration and invites all to allow him to share this experience.
