I have started practicing Vipassana meditation and seek information on the Mahasi Sayadaw tradition. Could anyone provide me with some sources for learning about and understanding this tradition? Thank you!

  • Ven. Yuttadhammo teaches from this tradition - youtube.com/user/yuttadhammo/featured

  • Check out this website which has free books by Mahasi Sayadaw. Here you will find books on the Mahasi meditation method and lots of other great stuff. Also take a look at the Resource Section. As someone else mentioned Ven. Yuttadhammo teaches the Mahasi-method and you can find an overview of his videos here. Check out the meditation-section. If you have any more questions regarding the Mahasi-tradition let me know.

If you are looking for reading material, here are some good resources:

If you are looking to follow a course, it depends on where you are or where you can travel to. If you are in Canada, checkout the courses page at sirimangalo.org If you come to Asia, there are many choices. Here are a few:


The Chom Tong tradition (linked in the answer above for Thailand already) also has a number of centers in Europe and around (incomplete list):

There are also teachers not attached to a specific center, giving courses at various places (again, very incomplete list):
