Lienchi Tran

Lienchi was born into a Buddhist family. She began her path of meditation in 1986 with Thay Thich Nhat Hanh in the Mahayana tradition. In 1994, she met Venerable Khippapanno, and his kindness and wisdom inspired Lienchi to practice in the Theravada tradition. Since 1998, Lienchi has been visiting Asia regularly and has practiced with Luang Por Sumedho, Sayadaw U Pandita, and Sayadaw U Tejaniya.

Lienchi has been ordained 3 times and has attended many retreats ranging from 10 days to 2 years with Venerable Khippapanno, Luang Por Sumedho, Sayadaw U Pandita, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, and other IMS and IRC teachers in the US.

In 2015, Lienchi left her career as an architect to practice full-time in Burma with her primary teacher, Sayadaw U Tejaniya, for 2 years.

In early 2017, the InsightLA Meditation Organization founded by Mrs. Trudy Goodman invited Lienchi to teach. Both of her teachers: Ngai Kim Trieu and Sayadaw U Tejaniya encouraged her to share her understandings and experiences of meditation with other yogis. Since then, Lienchi has been sharing how she knows the mind through a natural and relaxed continuity. She has a practical, intuitive, and compassionate approach to the development of wisdom through the cultivation of awareness.

Currently, Lienchi is working with number meditation centers in the US and providing online help for many yogis in many different countries around the world.
