It seems a Burmese Bhikkhu was said to be voluntarily meditate and passed away subsequently.
What is this? How this happens?
At first, I find it disturbing…but then I recall a story in Visuddhimagga where in ancient Lanka, there was an Arahant Elder asked the monks that: have they seen a monk attains Parinibbana while standing. The monks replied “No.”, then the Elder said he will do so. He performs walking meditation. After a full extent of walk and turning back mid way, there the Elder attained Parinibbana while standing.
Anyone knows the name of that monastery?
