Where can I find Mahasi Sayadaw's full treatise on Vipassana?

Posts: 52 Join Date: 9/2/13 Recent Posts
In his book, Practical Inisight Meditation, the Sayadaw mentions in the preface that this book is only a translation of chapter 5 of the entire treatise on Vipassana that consists of 7 chapters and around 800 pages.
Anyone familiar with the entire book and whether it is available in English?

Thanks.

This is an old work. What makes you interested in reading something that is not current?

There is a thread somehwere here talking about a new translation I think which hasn't been completed yet. Not sure if you may find the full translation on the following site. Worth a look though.

Does the concept of 'old work' or 'not current' make reading text deemed 'old work' or 'not current' problematic for one's own perceptions? If so, in my experience, it's worth questioning those belief structures to see how they are conditioning how our experience plays out and contemplating their absence and how that would then effect or not effect how experience plays out.

Interested to understand the core Mahasi teachings better, best way to do that is to go to the source emoticon

Interesting history...

Original Vipasanna resources-
Satipatthana Sutta
Anapanasati Sutta
The-Path-of-Freedom-Vimuttimagga
Interesting to read the originals that founded the bases for all the early vipassana practises
Good luck,
