There is newly edition of this booklet by the title of
WHERE HAVE YOU COME FROM? & A PRECIOUS HUMAN REBIRTH
Size: 5.5” x 8.5”
Pages: 30 pages
In clear and direct language, Where Have You Come From? addresses questions of perennial spiritual urgency — life, afterlife, and liberation. It is the uncertainty of life that impels the search for meaning; and that same uncertainty provides the key to unlock that meaning. Difficult teachings like not-self, rebirth, and the process of liberation are here explained with vivid examples and moving stories drawn from traditional Buddhist texts and from contemporary life. This booklet aims to clear away doubt regarding some key Buddhist doctrines in the modern context, and shows how our approach to spiritual practice is shaped by our understanding of the nature of life.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
is the Spiritual Director of the Association for Insight Meditation, which he set up in 1995 with the help of Christine Fitzmaurice and David Glendinning.
His first contact with Buddhism came through meeting two meditators who had practised the U Ba Khin meditation method with Sri Goenka in India. After an intensive ten-day retreat with Mr John Coleman, the author of »» “A Quiet Mind,” he resolved to dedicate his life to the practice of insight meditation .
Bhikkhu Pesala ordained in 1979 with Venerable Mahāsi Sayādaw as his preceptor, and Chanmyay Sayādaw U Janaka as the examiner. Later the same year, he went to practise intensive meditation for six months at Mahāsi Yeikthā in Rangoon. Altogether, he has been to Burma four times to practise meditation under senior disciples of Mahāsi Sayādaw, especially Chanmyay Sayādaw U Janaka.
Over the years, he has edited many books by Mahāsi Sayādaw, Ledi Sayādaw, and other Buddhist monks and scholars. He has worked tirelessly for many years to promote the systematic approach to insight meditation taught by the late Mahāsi Sayādaw.
In addition, he has endeavored to share his understanding of Dhamma through writing, editing, and translating many Dhamma books, notably his abridged translation of the classic Theravadin text The Debate of King Milinda.
