Adviser introduction

Elder Pra Chan Chai
Elder Pra Chan Chai

Thai’s official Buddhism overseas evangelist. At the Mahasi meditation center of Elder Maharashiya, a senior elder of the Theravada Buddhism of Myanmar, received meditation guidance from Elder U. Jatilla and received the highest ranking as a meditation instructor.

Recommendation from Elder Pra Chan Chai

Recommendation from Elder Pra Chan Chai
Mr. Fukuzawa is a rare person who has been spending more than 15 years to pursue the truth. He continues to seriously learn the truth and practice Vipassana meditation that Buddha preached.

Mr. Fukuzawa's attitude to understand through self-experience, not just to believe in the teachings, is exactly what Buddha taught to his disciples.

Mr. Fukuzawa will be able to correctly convey the truth and Vipassana meditation that Buddha has preached.

Above all, "Vipassana", which is the basis of the meditation society, is the most important meditation in the teachings of Buddha. It is the only meditation method that can completely eradicate all human greeds and foulnesses.

However, because nowadays it is not practiced frequently and few people understand its essence correctly, Vipassana has not spread worldwide.

In this “Vipassana” meditation event, the meditation can be practiced correctly by the general public working in modern society, and as a result they can understand the truth, without the usage of esoteric Buddhism terms.

I think this event is feasible because Mr. Fukuzawa has a career of more than 10 years as a management executive, and he is a practitioner who practices and understands correctly.

I hope that everyone in Japan will learn the truth and Vipassana, and many people will find inner peace and happiness.
