This book was originally published in 1979 in Myanmar and Pali and was translated into English by U Nyi Nyi and Maung Tha Noe. It is the collection of some of the discourses delivered by the Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw during his Oversea missionary tours. Mahasi Sayadaw had been to many countries extensively for the sake of propagating Buddhism.

Those days Sayadaw was invited to pay visit to some countries like Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Thailand, Japan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, England, Canada and USA. Sayadaw paid visit to those countries with untiring effort to spread the Mahasi Meditation Method throughout the world. During his missions he preached and taught people about the Buddha Sasana and the practice of Satipatthana Vipassana meditation. Sayadaw had also authored more than eighty books mostly in Myanmar and some in Pali Language. In this way, Sayadaw promoted the spread of Buddha Sasana and the practice of Mahasi Vipassana Meditation abroad. Since then, there appeared recognized, affiliated Mahasi Meditation Centres in many countries.

Gradually, Mahasi Meditation Centre became well known among the people all over the world and several people paid visit to Yangon Mahasi Meditation Centre to learn the method of Mahasi Vipassana. Here, we give a wise guidance and instructions to those who want to learn and practise about the insight meditation by the experienced teachers. So, I hope this book might be beneficial to study about the Mahasi Vipassana Insight Meditation and be helpful to achieve the peace of mind by means of mindfulness. Hopefully, this book might change the life with great blessings.
