The Burmese form of vipassana meditation as taught by Sayagyi U Ba Khin has many adherents amongst Buddhists and non-Buddhists. There are two major organisations that have a web presence led by followers of U Ba Khin. Please note: Vipassana Fellowship is not connected with either of these organisations; we just get asked about them a lot! Please contact the organisations directly for retreat schedules and centre addresses.

Mother Sayamagyi

International Meditation Centres in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin

Led by followers of Mother Sayamagyi. She taught for many years at U Ba Khin's centre in Rangoon, and lived in the UK until she died, with centres around the world.

S.N. Goenka

Vipassana Meditation Centres in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin

Goenkaji, who died in October 2013, was probably the most famous of the directly authorized teachers and has had a tremendous impact in the revival of this form of meditation in India and elsewhere.

Other Teachers

The organisations above have many "Assistant Teachers" who lead particular courses and retreats. There are also several other teachers who were directly authorized by U Ba Khin who operate independently from these organisations, including Ruth Dennison in the USA.
