Venerable Taungpulu Tawya Kaba-Aye Sayadaw - Theravada Buddhism Burma - Buddhist Monk and Disciple Dr. Rina Sircar
Authors note: The author, raul garcia, was a monk under Taungpulu in TKAM Monastery in BC CA. I do testify that no description can encompass the greatness of Taungpulu Sayadaw. He emanated immense power in many levels and affected all greatly and deeply. For example the stillness around him had no limit, the light no end, the joy was pure. He was truly unbounded by the body, mind and the physical world. Truly an Arhat.
But for such a brilliant light of Mindfulness and power - he was pure Patience and Humility.
He was little known in the so called 'west', there was no publicity campaign around him. But he came to found the monastery TKAM were his legacy is available for all to experience in his stupa and pagoda, as well as in retreats. He had the power to leave there an eternal legacy of Truth for all to dive deep into it. Just try it...
One of his lemmas was: Truth is incredibly simple and incredibly profound. ---
Taungpulu Sayadaw, a forest monk (bhikkhu) residing in Upper Burma, lived a solitary life for many years practicing the age-old meditation methods that lead to the spiritual realizations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
He would have practiced this way contentedly his entire lifetime were it not for the public recognition of his spiritual accomplishment that began with the visit of a young army doctor, Albert Sircar, stationed in the area where Taungpulu was living. ... Taungpulu Sayadaw had fully developed the all-knowing mind, the mind which has the power of infinite range.
He was known to heal simply by giving a small glass of blessed water, or even by a glance. People reported being protected by him in life-threatening situations. He would give you advice if you asked, but mostly he remained silent.
Outwardly his life appeared monotonous, yet miraculous incidents surrounded him. He was seen walking on water, flying through the air; he released the dead from the in-between states, snakes protected him, animals of all kinds would greet him when he appeared, and even deer came out of the forest to pay their respects.
