A Manual of the Excellent Man by Ledi Sayadaw

Posted on | August 26, 2011 | No Comments

A Manual of the Excellent Man by Ledi Sayadaw Buddism PDFA Manual of the Excellent Man – Uttamapurisa Dīpanī. Ledi Sayadaw was the “father” of the insight meditation tradition in Burma. Before he became famous, only a few monks practised insight meditation, and even fewer lay people. He lived during the time of the British Raj, when many ignorant Buddhists were converting to Christianity. Because of his knowledge of pariyatti (theory), he was able to write  books on Dhamma in both Pali and Burmese languages such as, Paramattha-dipani (Manual of Ultimate Truth), Nirutta-dipani, a book on Pali grammar and The Manuals of Dhamma all over Burma. At the same time he kept alive the pure tradition of patipatti (practice) by teaching the technique of Vipassana to a few people.

Ledi Sayadaw was perhaps the most outstanding Buddhist figure of his age (1846-1923). Download the free ebook here (124 pages):
