Stream Entry with Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Saturday, September 14 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm US Pacific Time

Registration Opens Soon

In Person at Insight Meditation Center and Online via Zoom

Stream-entry — also known as the arising of the Dhamma eye — is a momentous occasion in the practice. The first glimpse of the deathless, it makes irrevocable changes in the person who experiences it. Once you have this experience, you have no more doubts about the Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha, and are sure to reach unbinding in no more than seven lifetimes.

This daylong — through talks, meditations, readings, and discussions — will cover the steps the Buddha recommends for reaching stream-entry, the Canon’s descriptions of what is seen in stream-entry, and the long-term results of the experience.


About the Instructor:

Ṭhānissaro Bhikkhu, also known as Ajaan Geoff (born 1949), is an American Buddhist monk. Belonging to the Thai Forest Tradition, for 22 years he studied under the forest master Ajahn Fuang Jotiko (himself a student of Ajaan Lee). Since 1993 he has served as abbot of the Metta Forest Monastery in San Diego County, California — the first monastery in the Thai Forest Tradition in the US — which he cofounded with Ajahn Suwat Suvaco.

Ṭhānissaro Bhikkhu is perhaps best known for his translations of the Dhammapada and the Sutta Pitaka — almost 1000 suttas in all – as well as translations from the dhamma talks of the Thai forest ajahns. These translations are freely available at his website “dhammatalks.org” He has also authored several dhamma-related works of his own, and has compiled study-guides of his Pali translations.
