THE DOCTRINE of Paticcasamuppada or Dependent Origination is central to Buddhism. While the bodisatta (Buddha-to-be) was reflecting deeply on the nature of existence, he realised the truth about Dependent Origination, and attained enlightenment. Before he became the Buddha in his final existence, he pondered aging and death — as did every other bodhisatta. For it was only after he had seen the misery of aging, disease, and death that he renounced the world in search of the deathless.

All living beings want to avoid these misfortunes but they cannot escape. These misfortunes pursue them relentlessly from one existence to the next in a perpetual process of birth, aging, and death...

The late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw's discourse on Dependent Origination was delivered in several sections to meditators practising intensively at his meditation centre in Rangoon (Yangon).

This new edition has been prepared with the aim of making it more accessible by removing Pali words wherever possible, and by simplifying the English. Although many changes have been made to the original translation, they are mostly grammatical ones. The main content of the Venerable Sayadaw's discourse has been carefully preserved, but it is now much easier to read than it was.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The Venerable U Sobhana Mahathera, better known as Mahasi Sayadaw was born on 29 July 1904 to a peasant family in Upper Burma. At the age of six he began his studies at monastic school in his village, and at the age of twelve he was ordained a novice, receivingthe name of Sobhana. On reaching the age of twenty, he was ordained as a monk in 1923. In the eighth year as a monk, he met the well-known meditation teacher Venerable U Narada, who is alsoknown as Mingun Jetawun Sayadaw. He progressed so well in his meditation practise under the teacher that he was able to teach meditation effectively.

On the event of the Japanese invasion, he took residence at a monastery known as MAHA-SI-KAUNG, which was thus called because a drum (in Burmese: Si ) of an unusually large (Maha) size was housed there. From that monastery the Sayadaw's popular name Mahasi is derived.
