Whitge-Lotus-Ascetic1-106.pdfThe White Lotus Ascetic (Text)1489 viewsAbout fifty years ago, the late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw of Myanmar introduced the technique of focusing one’s attention on the ‘rising and falling’ movement of the abdomen as an object to develop mindfulness. Thus meditators practise Satipatthana developing momentary concentration to achieve purification of mind, without the need to develop mundane jhana. Satipatthana Vipassana meditation became very popular among monks as well as the laity and many new Vipassana meditation centers sprang up all over the world to cater to the growing demand.Aug 14, 2016

5_Hindrances_02ed_28Buddhanet29.pdfMahaSatipatthana Sutta:Establishment of Mindfulness on 5 Hindrances3203 viewsIn this book, Bro James explained how to establish mindfulness on these 5 Hindrances and why it is important to do so. Written as if spoken in simple Malaysian English, he continued to draw upon his personal experience to explain and supplement the exposition of the Discourse. Connecting the dots between Text and life, he illustrates it with modern day scenarios enabling us to see how the practice is applied – in both formal practice and daily life today.Aug 14, 2016

Beginners2ed_28Buddhanet29.pdfMahaSatipatthana Sutta: Great Discourse on Four-Fold Establishment of Mindfulness2182 viewsThis book explains Satipatthana or mindfulness practice by going directly and referring to this Discourse, which the Buddha originally expounded to the people of Kurus. So here we return to the basic orthodox Discourse spoken by the Buddha as a guide. In this way you gain a complete understanding of what the Buddha really taught. You can also gauge whether you are on the right track or if there is any missing part in your practice that you might need to include.Aug 14, 2016
08Taking_the_Practice_Home.pdf
08Taking_the_Practice_Home.pdfTaking the Practice Home2147 viewsIf meditation is to have any relevance to everyday life it has to be done at home. This does not mean just your residence but wherever your attention happens to reside. To meditate at home requires a 'hands-on', dynamic approach that is not restricted to any particular time, place or posture. When applied in this way, it becomes integrated into the ordinary activities of life and becomes the basis for a meditative lifestyle in the home and the routine of everyday life.Sep 27, 2013
07Support_of_Loving-kindness.pdf
07Support_of_Loving-kindness.pdfSupport of Loving-kindness Meditation1871 viewsAfter the meditator is established in the basics of Vipassana meditation, Loving-kindness meditation can be used to support the more challenging Vipassana practice. While this is switching meditation modes to a concentration-based practice, its benefit is that it uplifts and sweetens the mind and helps meditators to cope with negative emotions that they may not yet be able to deal with in their Vipassana practice.Sep 27, 2013
06Questions-and-Responses_.pdf
06Questions-and-Responses_.pdfQuestions and Responses1969 viewsThere are three areas of difficulties that most meditators experience when first doing the practice: incessant thinking, disinclination or inability to handle pain, and sleepiness. In addition to the explanation to the difficulties facing meditators, here are some commonly asked questions – often on practical issues - by new students, and my responses to them. I hope they can help to clarify and elaborate on the practice as a standardised set of instructions is usually given to beginners, which needs then to be explained further to the individual meditator as they practice.Sep 27, 2013
05Guidelines_for_the_Practice.pdf
05Guidelines_for_the_Practice.pdfGuidelines for the Practice2376 viewsNow that you have been give the basic instructions and are doing the exercises to develop the practice, it is necessary to have an overview and a framework of
the practice to guide you. In order to do this, we need to go back to the source material of the Buddha’s set of instructions on Vipassana meditation: The Four Foundations of Mindfulness.

04Interview_-_What_to_Report.pdf
04Interview_-_What_to_Report.pdfWhat to Report in an Interview1864 viewsOnce the beginner is established in the basic techniques, students are then required to report their experience to the teacher in a formal interview throughout the retreat. The interview is the basis for the relationship between the teacher and the student. It is crucial for the development of Vipassana meditation as it is where the meditator reports his or her experience and can be guided and given further instructions if need be by the teacher.Sep 27, 2013
03Basic_Instructions.pdf
03Basic_Instructions.pdfBasic Instructions for Vipassana Meditation 3486 viewsFrom the beginning and throughout the practice sessions the strategies and fundamentals of Vipassana meditation will be given so that you become well established in the essentials of the techniques involved. Then it is important that the meditator understands the practice in its context. So a frame of reference is necessary, in the form of a framework to the practice as given by the Buddha in his teaching in the Satipatthana Sutta or the discourse on The Four Foundations of Mindfulness.Sep 27, 2013

01Practicing_Vipassana.pdfPracticing Vipassana Meditation4276 viewsMany people all over the world are now practicing the Buddhist meditation known as Vipassana or Insight Meditation. Western psychotherapies have taken it up as ‘mindfulness’ as well as ordinary people who have found it beneficial in coping with the stresses and strains of modern life. While many are increasingly taking time out to attend retreats in Vipassana meditation centres. So this series of text will take you the basic practice.Sep 27, 2013
