THE MAHASI TRADITION certainly demands a high degree of mental concentration with direct insight practice which could open an access to the core of the teaching of the Buddha. In the course of the practice of this method there would follow a natural growth of moment to moment mindfulness, concentration, inner calmness and firmness which leads to higher attainments of path and fruition knowledges and finally the attainment of the states of nibbanic bliss.
The yogi will find this publication most useful. It gives the part-timer or full-timer a layout of fast comprehension and revision of the Mahasi tradition of Insight Meditation which has now a following of more than 700,000 who had chosen to go through this method of Vipassana practice. Although the Mahasi Sayadaw has passed away when this present anthology of his works was being prepared, this publication will served its purpose as a memorial issue as well as a ready handbook for yogis to refer to in times of doubt and as a reference to clear away incomprehension.
This revised edition of an anthology of Mahasi Sayadaw's discourses serves as an appetiser to his writings and as an entrance to the realm of Buddhist mental cultivation. The selection of passages has been rearranged and slightly expanded. All texts have been edited to improve on the English expression, to clarify somewhat obscure passages and to simplify the reading for the beginner by replacing all uncommon Pali terms with English equivalents.
