Anniversary new journal containing biographical sketches of the chain of teachers, the writings of Sayagyi and other writings by Goenkaji and his students.

1998 Edition.

When he died in 1971, the great Burmese meditation master Sayagyi U Ba Khin left an invaluable legacy. He was one of the first teachers in this century to present the ancient technique of Vipassana in a modern, systematic way, making it accessible to people of diverse denominations and cultures. Vipassana, the essence of the teaching of the Buddha, is a simple, practical method for achieving real peace of mind.

This journal commemorates U Ba Khin's exemplary life and teaching. It contains a selection of his discourses, and biographical sketches of his life and the lives of the teachers who preceded him. Included are essays about his noteworthy career by his renowned disciple, S.N. Goenka, as well as articles on different aspects of the Vipassana technique.

The Journal includes the writings of Sayagyi U Ba Khin; essays by and interviews with S.N. Goenka; historical sketches of the chain of teachers from Ledi Sayadaw to Goenkaji; a sampling of Pali research papers from V.R.I.; descriptions of the Vipassana meditation centers under Goenkaji's direction; and essays and testimonials by assistant teachers and students of Vipassana. Full color pictures of Sayagyi U Ba Khin, S.N. Goenka, and Vipassana centers.
