Anything like a PDF or a website link or a podcast audio is OK for me :)

This answer has details and references to resources on the Mahasi Sayadaw method of vipassanā.


I also recommend Allan Wallace's podcasts, he has 40 years of experience and is a very good meditation teacher.

For example this course, Fall 2012 Shamatha, Vipashyana and the Four Applications of Mindfulness, is on vipassana.

Also, check out his books. He has written many, so I won't be specific. But try browsing him by subject and see what you like.

For me personally I've gotten a lot of direct help from people on this forum too. There are many very experienced, helpful and competent guys here.

  • Do you know, which of the podcasts on the page you linked to are resources for Metta and/or Vipasanna meditation?

  • I can ask the guy who gave me the link, I'm meeting him tomorrow. Commented Dec 4, 2015 at 6:52
  • Hi ChrisW, I think this one from fall 2012 is on vipassana, media.sbinstitute.com/courses/fall2012 Commented Dec 6, 2015 at 8:37
  • Thank you (I edited the answer because for answers to a reference-request it's probably more helpful to give a specific reference to the thing requested -- instead of a link to a web site which might contain the thing requested somewhere, leaving the OP still to search for it).

The Wildmind website provides instructions on several types of meditation practiced in the Triratna Buddhist Community. The techniques include, among others, the lovingkindness meditation (mettā bhāvāna).


Ven. Yuttadhammo has a book : http://static.sirimangalo.org/howto/HTM.pdf

  • This book describes (a form of) Vipassana, doesn't it.
