The international meditation centre in Bahan township, Yangon Region, donated food and offertories to members of the Sangh on Tuesday in commemoration of the demise of U Ba Khin, a pioneer in the propagation of insight meditation across the world.
The centre was founded by U Ba Khin in 1951. Satya Narayan Goenka, an international instructor of Vipassana meditation, was his disciple. U Ba Khin passed away on 19 January 1971.
