Satipatthana Meditation Society of Canada

Dhamma Library


Buddha-Dhamma is available everywhere in this electronic age, as are Pali texts, commentaries, sub-commentaries and various Dhamma books and videos by world renowned Buddhist teachers and meditation masters. The SMSC will not and cannot try or attempt to be comparable to such treasures.

The SMSC Dhamma library contains some of the Dhamma talks as given by our Spiritual Advisor Chanmyay Sayadawgyi and the resident teacher Sa-yar Myat at beginner, intermediate and advanced meditation classes. This library is an attempt to portray the essence of the SMSC organization and its operations.
