Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw U Sobhana (29 July 1904 - 14 August 1982) was a Burmese Theravada Buddhist monk and meditation master who had a significant impact on the teaching of Vipassana (Insight) meditation in the West and throughout Asia. In his style of practice, the meditator anchors their attention on the sensations of the rising and falling of the abdomen during breathing, observing carefully any other sensations or thoughts. Mah si Say daw was born in 1904 in Seikkhun village in Upper Burma. He became a novice at age twelve, and was ordained at the age of twenty with the name Sobhana. Over the course of decades of study, he passed the rigorous series of government examinations in the Therav da Buddhist texts, gaining the newly-introduced Dhamm cariya (dhamma teacher) degree in 1941.show more
