It is my great pleasure that we can publish this new edition of Vipassana Meditation which so far has been printed three times in Malaysia and Myanmar. We are deeply grateful to the Venerable Bhikkhu Sujiva for his tireless efforts to compile and edit my lectures and instructions given for the benefits of yogis in the retreat I conducted in Penang, Malaysia in April 1983.
This new edition was made during my Dhamma tour in the West in 1992. Bhikkhu Pesala of the Burmese Vihara, London, rendered me invaluable assistance in this respect. Royce Wiles, my student in medication, has polished the language in the manuscript that was entered onto computer by U Dhammasubha, a Malaysian bhikkhu, Maung Aung Gyi and Maung Zaw Myint Oo. I thank them all a great deal.
