I have a great pleasure in writing a foreword to this third reprint of the English translation of the ‘Discourse on Lokadhamma’. The most Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw had delivered the discourse in Myanmar Language to the laities in Sasana Yeiktha on the Myanmar New Year Day (Thingyan Festival) in 1965. The English translation from the Myanmar version of the Lokadhamma was made by U Ohn Pe (Tet Toe) on 29.5.1970. The book explains vividly of the ups and downs in life every human being has to face in their life time and gives remedial measures of attitude one has to develop when one encounters them.

More details about the book was written by U Min Swe, the then seceretary of the Buddha Sasana Nuggaha Organization in his foreword. My suggestion to the reader is to read the book cover to cover and practise the advice given by the Mahasi Sayadaw when confronted with the problems of Lokadhamma.

May you attain Magga, Phala and Nibbana by practising the Insight Vipassana Mindfulness Meditation.
