Practical Insight Meditation: Basic and Progressive Stages
A clear, simple meditation method on practicing mindfulness for insight, which takes us to our goal of liberation, the end of all suffering. Discarding any striving or ambition to attain something, the refined guidance that Mahasi Sayadaw provides in this book will lead practitioners to systematically and gradually purify their minds of attachment, aversion, and delusion and to realize the successive stages of enlightenment, culminating in the attainment of enlightenment nibbana. Mindfulness and Insight is an excerpt of two key chapters from the comprehensive, authoritative Manual of Insight, which expounds the doctrinal and practical aspects of mindfulness satipatthana and the development of insight knowledge vipassana up to and including nibbana. In Manual of Insight, Mahasi Sayadaw acknowledged that these two chapters alone offer suitable guidance on our own journey of awakening by realizing path knowledge, fruition knowledge, and nibbana, particularly for those with little or no knowledge of the Pali scriptures. Simple but profound, clear but not superficial, the instructions laid down here serve as a trustworthy roadmap for any serious practitioner who aspires for the goal of the Buddha's teaching. This book on the Mahasi method of practice is a wonderfully clear and deep guide to what the Buddha called 'the sure heart's release. The Mahasi method is the invaluable foundation of my own mindfulness practice; I am confident this book will be useful for anyone dedicated to the path of insight.
