Synopsis:
Basic instructions on the practice of mindfulness meditation by one of Burma's outstanding masters.

The practice of Vipassana or insight meditation was described by the Buddha as the direct way for overcoming all sorrow and grief and for realizing nibbana, the state of perfect liberation from suffering. The essence of this practice consists in the Four Foundations of Mindfulness: mindful contemplation of the body, feelings, states of mind, and mind objects.

Combining extensive knowledge of the Buddhist scriptures with profound personal experience, the renowned Burmese meditation master has ordered the various aspects of Vipassana into a clear, simple and direct system that has spread widely in both the East and the West. In the present work he explains in lucid language the key steps in the practice of Vipassana. The first part of the work provides instructions in the basic exercises to be undertaken by someone new to the meditation. The second part sketches the progressive stages of insight that unfold as the practice advances towards its goal.
