The late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw was born in the year at Seikkhun, a large, prosperous and charming village lying about seven miles to the west of the historic Shwebo town in Upper Burma. At the age of six he was sent to receive his early monastic eduction under U Adicca, presiding monk of Pyinmana Monastery at Seikkhun. The name befitted his courageous features and his dignified behaviour.
He was a bright pupil, making remarkably quick progress in his scriptural studies. Shin Sobhana knew where his heart lay and unhesitatingly chose the first course. Within four years Ven. Sobhana passed all three grades of the Pali scriptural examinations conducted by the Government.
Sobhana next went to the city of Mandalay, noted for its pre-eminence in Buddhist learning, to pursue advanced study of the scriptures under Sayadaws well-known for their learning. His stay at Khinmakan-west Monastery for this purpose was, however, cut short after little more than a year when he was called to Moulmein. The head of the Taik-kyaung monastery in Taungwainggale who came from the same village as Ven.
Sobhana wanted him to assist with the teaching of his pupils. While teaching at Taungwainggale, Ven. Within four months he had such good results that he could teach it properly to his first three disciples at Seikkhun while he was on a visit there in After his return from Thaton to Taungwainggale owing to the grave illness and subsequent death of the aged Taik-kyaung Sayadaw to resume his teaching work and to take charge of the monastery, Ven. On the eve of the Japanese invasion of Burma, Ven.
Sobhana had to leave Taungwainggale and return to his native Seikkhun. The Mahasi Monastery at Seikkhun whence he became known as Mahasi Sayadaw fortunately remained free from the horror and disruption of war. Sir U Thwin donated to the Association a plot of land in Hermitage Road, Rangoon, measuring over five acres, for the erection of the proposed meditation centre.
In , the Centre occupied an area of Sir U Thwin told the Association that he had found a reliable meditation teacher and proposed that the then Prime Minister of Burma invite Mahasi Sayadaw to the Centre. Meanwhile, Burma had regained independence on 4th January As the meditators grew in numbers, it became too demanding for the Sayadaw to give the entire initiation talk to all the meditators. From July the tape-recorded talk was played for each new batch of meditators with a brief introduction by the Sayadaw.
These centres were not confined to Burma alone, but extended to neighbouring Theravada countries like Thailand and Sri Lanka. There were also a few centres in Cambodia and India. According to a census, the total number of meditators trained at all these centres both in Burma and abroad had exceeded seven hundred thousand.
For this purpose the Government dispatched a mission to Thailand and Cambodia, composed of Nyaungyan Sayadaw, Mahasi Sayadaw and two laymen. The mission discussed the plan with the Primates of the Buddhist Sangha of those two countries. In the editing of this commentarial literature, Mahasi Sayadaw was responsible for making a critical analysis, sound interpretation and skilful reconciliation of several crucial and divergent passages.
In , while the Council was in progress, twelve Japanese monks and a Japanese laywoman arrived in Burma to study Theravada Buddhism. The monks were initiated into the Theravada Buddhist Sangha asnovices while the laywoman was made a Buddhist nun.
Mahasi Sayadaw was one of the leading representatives of the Burmese Sangha in that mission. The Sayadaw completed this difficult task in , his work bearing every mark of distinctive learning and depth of understanding. By then the Sayadaw had also completed two volumes out of four of his Burmese translation of this famous commentary and classic work on Buddhist meditation. The mission stayed in Sri Lanka for over a year doing admirable work, setting up twelve permanent and seventeen temporary meditation centres.
Following the completion of a meditation centre on a site granted by the Sri Lankan Government, a larger mission led by Mahasi Sayadaw left Burma for Sri Lanka on 6th January , via India.
The mission was in India for about three weeks, during which its members visited several holy places associated with the life and work of Lord Buddha. Rajendra Prasad and vice-president Dr. A notable feature of the visit was the warm welcome received from members of the depressed classes, who had embraced Buddhism under the guidance of their late leader Dr.
The mission flew from Madras to Sri Lanka on 29th January and arrived at Colombo on the same day. They also worshipped at famous sites of Buddhist pilgrimage like Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura and Kandy. This historic visit of the Burmese mission under the inspiring leadership of Mahasi Sayadaw was symbolic of the ancient and close ties of friendship between these two Theravada Buddhist countries. Its benefit to the Buddhist movement in Sri Lanka was a revival of interest in meditation, which seemed to have declined.
Jinarakkhita, with Mahasi Sayadaw as his preceptor. After he returned as a Buddhist monk to Indonesia, the Buddha Sasana Council received a request to send a Burmese Buddhist monk to promote missionary work in Indonesia.
It was decided that Mahasi Sayadaw, as the preceptor and mentor of Ashin Jinarakkhita, should go. By , many meditation centres had been established and the number of Mahasi meditators exceeded a hundred thousand. Up till now Mahasi Sayadaw has to his credit 67 volumes of Burmese Buddhist literature. It is not, however, imposed on all who come to practise at any of the Mahasi meditation centres. Among the first meditators from abroad was former British Rear-Admiral E.
Shattock who came on leave from Singapore and practised meditation at the Sasana Yeiktha in Another foreigner was Mr. Robert Duvo, a French-born American from California. Afterwards he directed an international meditation centre at Buddha Gaya where many people from the West came to practise meditation. Both of them were accomplished meditators. The Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw is profoundly revered by countless grateful disciples in Burma and abroad.
Like a true son of the Buddha, he lived valiantly, spreading the word of the Master throughout the world and helped many thousands and tens of thousands onto the Path of Enlightenment and Deliverance. Considered as one of the most influential Buddhist figure of the 20th century, Venerable Mahashi Sayadaw contributed to the revival of the practice of Vipassana meditation Mindfulness.

Meditation Maps, Attainment Claims, and the Adversities of Mindfulness
A case study of the descriptions of the progress of Buddhist insight meditation provided by Daniel Ingram shows how a forceful form of mindfulness combined with high-speed mental noting can result in the construction of meditative experiences to accord with expectations created by maps of the progress of insight, culminating in claims to having reached levels of awakening. The potential impact of personal bias evident in this way reveals challenges faced by those researching meditative practices and cautions against overvaluing subjective reports by yogis. In particular, potentially adverse effects of mindfulness practices in the health care setting need to be placed into proper perspective, as the contention that even those who do not engage in deep and intensive insight meditation can suffer from repercussions potentially resulting from undergoing the insight knowledges is not accurate. Progress in research on mindfulness requires the sobriety of evaluating meditative experiences within their context, be it psychological, doctrinal, cultural, or social, in order to arrive at balanced assessments that avoid the two extremes of uncritical enthusiasm and exaggerated apprehensions.

To present to the reading public a treatise on Buddhist meditation needs no word of apology today. In wide circles of the West, Buddhist meditation is no longer regarded as a matter of purely academic or exotic interest. Under the stress and complexity of modern life the need for mental and spiritual regeneration is now widely felt, and in the field of the mind's methodical development the value of Buddhist meditation has been recognized and tested by many. It is, in particular, the Buddha's Way of Mindfulness satipatthana that has been found invaluable because it is adaptable to, and beneficial in, widely different conditions of life. The present treatise is based on this method of cultivating mindfulness and awareness, which ultimately aims at the mind's final liberation from greed, hatred, and delusion. The author of this treatise, the Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw U Sobhana Mahathera , is a Buddhist monk of contemporary Burma and an eminent meditation master.
Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw
The practice of Vipassana or insight meditation was described by the Buddha as the direct way, for the overcoming of 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, state of mind, and mind objects. Combining extensive knowledge of the Buddhist scriptures with profound [personal experience, the Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw 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.
