Bro James was previously ordained as a monk in Malaysian Buddhist Meditation Centre, Penang, Malaysia where his teacher Phra Dhammabarnchanvud was the founder. His Dhammaduta initiatives includes having founded a few Buddhist societies and meditation centres in Malaysia.
He has been teaching Wisdom Meditation and Loving Kindness (Metta) Meditation since 1965 besides giving Dhamma talks in Hokkien. Bro James is a very skilled and inspirational teacher. Through his experience, he's able to illustrate the Dhamma in a simple way, making it relevant to lay people. At present, he still conducts several Meditation Courses a year. He also teaches Abhidhamma.
Sis Shymiin started practising Wisdom Meditation in 1993 and continues to dedicate herself to practice. Though she has done long retreats in the Mahasi tradition, her practice is mainly grounded in the Satipatthana as guided by Bro James, her main teacher. She's responsible for transcribing his Dhamma talks for publication. In 2007, she began her training to guide with Bro James and has been assisting in his meditation classes since.
