Description

This inspiring book was written by Ledi Sayadaw in response to a letter from a lay meditator posing ten questions on important points of the Buddha’s teaching.

In clear, concise, vivid language the author explains, among other topics, the perfections, the five aggregates, the true peace of Nibbana, how to be mindful while doing a meritorious deed, practicing the three refuges, understanding the Four Noble Truths, and dependent origination. Finally, the Sayadaw encourages meditators to make use of opportunities such as having confidence and hearing the Dhamma.

Ledi Sayadaw’s concise, clear and extensive scholarly work serves to clarify the experiential aspect of the Dhamma. The Burmese monk holds an important place within the tradition of Vipassana as taught by S.N. Goenka, having appointed the lay-meditator Saya Thetgyi as a teacher, who then taught Sayagyi U Ba Khin, Goenkaji’s own teacher.
