Note to the electronic version:

This electronic version is reproduced directly from the printed version the text is an English translation from the original Burmese. No attempt has been made to change any of the English phraseology. The reason for putting this book into electronic media is that the book is out of print and the text has been found very a valuable source of inspiration to those practicing Vipassana meditation, despite using English language, which is somewhat archaic.

Namo Tassa Bhagavato Arahato Samma Sambuddhassa.

[Veneration to Him, the Most Exalted, the Purified, the Supremely Enlightened Buddha.]
