We also carry titles from the Theravada tradition, as we feel that by exploring the wider world of the Theravada texts, which include the Buddha’s discourses, commentaries, and scholarly articles and treatises, meditators have an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Dhamma and thereby enrich their meditation practice. This kind of intellectual exploration also helps a meditator to gain an understanding of the evolution and historical context of their meditation tradition. This understanding in turn deepens their practice and understanding of the Dhamma.x

The Patthanuddesa Dipani is Ledi Sayadaw's treatment of one of the most difficult and complex subjects of Theravada Buddhist thought the philosophy of conditional relations. The Paṭṭhāna, the seventh and last book of the Abhidhamma Piṭaka, works out the relations in six large volumes.
In the present slim volume the Venerable Ledi Sayadaw has extracted the essential principles underlying this vast system and explained them concisely but comprehensively, with lucid illustrations for the Paṭṭhāna's twenty-four conditional relations.
