The Manulas of Ledi Dipani

By The Most Venerable Maha Thera Ledi Sayadaw Aggamahapandita D.LITT

Translated by Sayadaw U Nyana, Patannagyaw of Masoeyein Monastery, Mandalay


The fact that a reliable compilation of the materials which one who enters upon the practice of meditation ought to be in possession of before commencing the Practice of Exercise of Insight (vipassana-kammatthana) is much needed by the Buddhists of the West, has been duly taken into consideration by the Venerable Ledi Sayadaw, Aggamahapandita. To supply such a need he has written the Vipassana-Dipani (Exposition of Insight),first in Pali and afterwards in Burmese, (the latter only being sent to me for translation; the former, I am told, not being yet revised), treating of the following subjects: – the Vipallasa, the Mannana, the Abbinivsa, the Bhumi, the Gati, the Sacca, the causes of phenomena” the Abhinna, and the Parinna. Each of these subjects is fully expounded and furnished with brief illustrations, some of which are drawn from the Pali text, while others are the product of the Mahathera’s own mind and pen.
