    Amsterdam, Dhammadipa Vipassana Center
    Information & registration: www.dhammadipa.nl,
    E-Mail: gotama@xs4all.nl

    Kukkucca, together with restlessness (uddhacca), is known as a mental hindrance for a peaceful state of mind. It is often explained as remorse, regret or the feeling of guilt. Remorse however is concerned with past misdeeds or the lack of good deeds or actions in the past. To a lesser extend, kukkucca is explained as worry, sorrow or even anxiety of the future. This explanation is interesting for us, because in the west, we might be (more) familiar with this meaning.
    Don't we know this painful emotion - maybe because we are perfectionists, demand a great deal of ourselves, and cannot easily accept our limits, failures and weakness - or do we just think we are not good enough? Abhidhamma teaches that kukkucca belongs to the aversion group of mental states (cetasikas) and explains why and how it comes into being. This might be the key for us to practically identify it and to deal with it in a wholesome way in order to understand it and overcome it.
    Some ways of practice will be explained and guided, including forgiveness, sympathetic joy (muditā) with ourselves, and certainly Vipassanā.

    Abhidhamma is mainly concerned with the study of abstract truths in absolute terms. But in describing the dhammas in their various aspects, it is not possible to keep to absolute terms only.
    In this course we read together passages from the fourth book of the Abhidhamma-pitaka dealing with the different kinds of human characters
    and stages of spiritual development on the Buddhist path to liberation.

He also studied in Sri Lanka at the Kelaniya University in Colombo (M.A.) and got his Ph.D. from Magadh University in Bodh-Gaya, India. Because of his excellent knowledge of the Buddhist scriptures and his teaching experience he was rewarded highest distinctions and titles like Aggamahā- ganthavācakapaṇḍita and Aggamahāpaṇḍita.

    He is rector of the "International Theravāda Buddhist Missionary University" (ITBMU) in Yangon, of "Sītagū International Buddhist Academy" in Sagaing, of the "International Institute of Abhidhamma" (IIA) in Yangon, and of the "Abhidhamma Foundation Singapore".

    Ayya Agganyani:

    Sayalay AgganyaniAyya Agganyāni (Sayalay Daw Aggañāṇī), born 1954 in Munich, scientist and former secretary general of the German Buddhist Union (DBU), is a German Buddhist nun in the Burmese tradition (Thilashin) and disciple of Sayadaw Dr. Nandamālābhivaṃsa.

    She got a Buddha-Dhamma diploma from the International Theravāda Buddhist Missionary Universtity in Yangon, Myanmar, in 1999. Since then, she is continuing her studies mostly of Abhidhamma and with Sayadaw, also translating his courses into German and assisting him.
    She herself teaches, translates and writes on Abhidhamma and Vipassanā.

    in CBSShe had learned and practised meditation in Taungpulu-, Mahāsi- and Mogok-tradition. Today her meditation focuses on Cittānupassanā. But she also loves contemplations (anussatis).

    Agganyani lives in Bruckmühl, South Germany, in her "Abhidhamma hermitage", and in the winter months partly in Myanmar (Burma), mostly in CBS, Sagaing, her teacher's first centre (see photo left).

    Agganyani's forest kutiUnfortunately, in early 2018 she had to give up her secluded forest kuti near Ariyavaṃsa Kyaung in Sagaing Hills (see photo at right) which had fallen victim to the new tourism boom in Myanmar and related deforestation.

    In the same year she also gave up her Sāmaṇerī vows after 15½ years, took 10 precepts and lives as "Yathema Thilashin" (hermit nun) now.
