Dhamma Talks By Venerable Sayardaw U Jotika at ABAC University, Bangkok, Thailand


Draft Biography Of Sayardaw

Sayadaw U Jotika: Born into a non-Buddhist family in Moulmein, Myanmar (Burma) on August 5, 1947. His parents were U Sattar and Daw Tin. He received his basic education at a Roman Catholic missionary school. During his younger days, he didn’t believe in any organized religion although he studied and exposed himself to many different religions, as well as western philosophy and psychology.

He graduated as an Electrical Engineer in 1973 from Rangoon Institute of Technology. He became very interested in Buddhist meditation. He discovered that life was unsatisfactory and majority of the people devoted their precious time mainly in gathering wealth, enjoying sensual pleasures, fame, power and position.

Thus, he decided to leave behind his family and became a “Samenera” (Novice) at the age of 26. He was ordained as a “Samgha” in 1974 at Taung Pu Lu Tawya, Meiktila with Ven. Taung Pu Lu Sayadaw as his preceptor. He practiced meditation under the guidance of the late Ven. Taung Pu Lu Sayadaw for (3) years. He continued to practice meditation with Htantabin Tawya Sayadaw for (15) years.
