The Abode of the Noble Ones
by MAHASI SAYADAW

ISBN 983-3512-21-6
IJ127/06
Size: 5.5” x 8.25"
Pages: 42 pages

This is an abbreviated translation of a talk by the late Venereable Mahasi Sayadaw on the Ariyavasa Sutta (The Abode of the Noble Ones) of the Anguttara Nikaya. Its name derives from the fact that the Noble Ones (ariya) always dwell in a safe haven of their own, ever mindful of and practising the Ariyavasa-dhammas. These ten dhammas are:
1) abandoning 5 factors,
2) fulfilling 6 factors,
3) the presence of a sentinel at the gate,
4) possession of the 4 supports,
5) renunciation of false religious beliefs,
6) giving up all forms of seeking,
7) unclouded aspirations,
8) attainment of the 'breathless' state (the fourth jhana),
9) a mind free from defilements and
10) the knowledge that liberates.

This edition at been prepared bearing in mind that it will be read by many who may be unfamiliar with Pali terms. The translator has abridged the Sayadaw's original discourse, which would probably have lasted at least one and a half hours. A summary like this is quite easy to understand.

The message of this sutta is clear. Let those who can emulate the example of the Noble Ones and secure their release from the bondage of suffering. The Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw stresses the practical aspect of the Dhamma, but this talk also includes numerous nuggets from his gold-mine of scriptural learning. In all his talks he covers most of the Buddhadhamma concerning the practical approach to Nibbana through insight meditation.


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.
