“Effort is a vital theme in the Buddha’s teachings on mental development. Many passages from the Tipitaka account for this. In a masterly manner the Venerable Sayadaw U Panditabhivamsa of Myanmar has knit the relevant teachings into an inspiring presentation drawn from the Buddhist canon. The Venerable Sayadaw is an exemplary manifestation of someone who consistently applies heroic effort. Even at the age of eighty he is still travelling far and wide throughout the year to teach insight meditation and spread the Dhamma. This book is based on a series of talks given during an insight meditation retreat conducted at the Panditarama Vipassana Meditation Centre, Lumbini, Nepal, in February 2000. The talks were delivered to a mixed audience of Western meditators and a larger group of Newari Buddhists from the Kathmandu valley, some of whom would be direct descendants of the Sakyamuni clan of the Buddha. The talks contain reference to both groups as the Venerable Sayadaw endeavours to encourage the individual meditators in their practice.”
