I am happy to meet Sayadaw Pannathami at my home this afternoon. He came with an attendant. I edited a short video of an One Day Meditation Retreat for him upon his request. Below short video is the edited version to share it with you.

The Panditarama Sydney Meditation Centre (PSMC) was established in February 2000. Currently Sayadaw U Pannathami is the abbot of the meditation centre. He has been a Buddhist monk and teaching mediation globally for over 20 years. This meditation centre in Sydney was formed for the elderly people to meditate anytime nearby and also for working people to meditate on the weekends. The centre also accepts meditators worldwide and provide them with food and lodging free of charge in addition to lectures on Vipassana meditation.


PSMC warmly welcome any Dhamma friends, Buddhist or non-Buddhist who want to experience the Dhamma. The centre’s aim is to promote the teaching of Theravada Buddhism particularly the practice of Satipatthana Vipassana meditation in the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw (Satipatthana Vipassana) of Burma. It is a non-profit organisation.

I donated this acrylic painting as a form of support to PSMC. I feel that it is a lovely painting and I hope it will go to a loving home of an art lover in Sydney soon. Kindly contact Panditarama Sydney Meditation Centre (PSMC) for acquisition of this painting.

I enjoy the beauty and design of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. I felt that the museum building is a very beautiful sculpture. It is located in Bilbao, Spain. You could view the museum at their website at: I think those who live near by the museum are blessed to have such wonderful museum around them. You could see the Maman, sculpture by Louise Bourgeois at the museum too. Enjoy!

I completed this painting and signed it today. I started the painting during the Art Class session on Saturday.
