A Short History WH399-401
A short history of Buddhism in Myanmar (Burma) from its origins until the beginning of the colonial period in the late 19th century. Myanmar has been the source from which several of the foremost systems of Vipassana meditation have spread to the rest of the world. Roger Bischoff is an assistant teacher at the International Meditation Center in the U.K. and a long-time student of Burmese language and culture.
In this 66-page booklet he intends to show from the viewpoint of a practicing Buddhist how Buddhism influenced the development of the Myanmar people until the Theravada Buddhist teachings became second nature to them.
