The tag Vipassana identifies products that are directly related to this
tradition and differentiates them from other Theravada resources
available on our site. While the main emphasis in Vipassana meditation
as taught by S.N. Goenka is on actual practice, this product may provide
inspiration and guidance to a Vipassana meditator.
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

A profound essay of extraordinary conciseness, clarity and power, in which the teacher of S. N. Goenka sums up the technique of Vipassana.
This short discourse was composed by Sayagyi U Ba Khin for his foreign students, who were not able to easily come to Myanmar for further practice and guidance. He recorded the discourse at least twice on early audio tape recorders. It was later transcribed and printed in various Buddhist journals where the editors gave it the title it has now.
This small book includes a life sketch of U Ba Khin and an introductory appreciation of his role in the modern dispensation of the Buddha's teaching.
