LOKADHAMMA
The Discourse on Worldly Conditions
by Mahāsi Sayādaw
ISBN 983-3512-32-1
IJ137/07
Size: 5.5” X 8.3”
Pages: 84 pages

This present book “Lokadhamma” will, it is hoped, serve as a useful guide, and prescribe a way from the crushing miseries of this transitory life to real happiness. It points out an easy method of restraining all the ignorant cravings and blind urges through the medium of simple meditational practice which will provide one with requisite stability of mind. The basic truth about what we call like is made up of mind and matter (nāma-rūpa) brought about by the law of kamma. It is accordingly prone to decay, old age, disease, and finally death. The life of mortals is full of sufferings, difficult and problematic. To tackle with lokadhamma which is inevitable, and to be able to withstand misery and minimize anger, sorrows, frustrations, desires and perplexities to which men are subjected, this book of dhamma should prove to be useful.

The Venerable Mahāsī Sayādaw has quoted a number of instances and cited therein a few relevant stories from the teaching of Buddha in a simple and interesting way so as to convince the reader that no sufferings befall the man who is not attached to nāma-rūpa and that the wise who control their temper and thoughts will be able to withstand the onslaughts of lokadhamma the inevitable ups and downs of life. It clearly indicates that the uninformed man does not possess true knowledge and serenity of mind whereas the wise man guards his thoughts and purges himself of all the vices of the mind under any circumstances in the vicissituds of life.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

VENERABLE MAHASI SAYADAW was born in Seikhun village, near Shwebo in Burma (Myanmar) in 1904. He become a novice at the age of twelve and from the very earliest time in the robes showed unusual powers of memory and intelligence.

In 1931, having gone about as far as scriptural knowledge could take him, he left the monastery he was staying in to pursue the study of vipassana meditation under Mingun Jetawan Sayadaw. He stayed at that monastery for about one year, practicing intensive insight meditation, but was forced to leave it when the abbot of his former monastery died and he had to return. He continued, however, to practice meditation in conjunction with his administrative and scriptural duties.

He began teaching insight meditation in 1938 on a visit back to his home village, where his teaching was enthusiastically received.

At the historic sixth Buddhist Council, which was inaugurated with every pomp and ceremony on 17th May 1954, Mahasi Sayadaw played an eminent role, performing the exacting and onerous tasks if Osana (Final Editor) and Pucchaka (Questioner) Sayadaw.

Over the years his fame as a meditation teacher gradually spread, and centers were opened all over the county. Since then, “Mahasi Centers” have spread too many places in the world, now numbering eighteen in ten different countries.
