Ariya B. Baumann's Dharma Talks
Ariya B. Baumann
Ariya B. Baumann was born and raised in Switzerland. She started to practise meditation during her training as a music and dance teacher at the conservatory in Zürich. In 1992, she went to Myanmar (Burma) and ordained as a nun under Sayadaw U Janaka and for many years she practised vipassana and metta meditation under his guidance. Later she assisted the Sayadaws by translating talks and interviews for foreign meditators. In 2006, she changed to the Chanmyay Myaing Meditation Centre, Yangon, where she assisted Sayadaw U Indaka as well as teaching the foreign meditators herself.
2010-10-05 The Defilements and the Three Trainings - Part 1 49:21
The three trainings in virtue, concentration, and wisdom enable a practitioner to suppress or abandon the different levels of defilements. But only the practice of vipassana mediation is able to completely uproot them.
