Buddhadharma : Fall 2016
fall 2 0 1 6 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly 59 O UR MEDITATIVE TRADITION was founded by the late Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw of Rangoon. According to his instructions, satipatthana vipassana, also known as insight meditation, is the primary teaching. Discourses on metta are also offered, though far less often. This is because insight wisdom has the capacity to liberate the mind by seeing the Dhamma directly. Unfortunately, however, not everyone can practice high-level satipatthana vipassana. It is a demanding practice, suitable for a minority of exceptional people. The benefits to be gained from this type of meditation, furthermore, are primarily for oneself. Others do benefit, but this happens somewhat indirectly. Since metta is easier for most people to develop and it benefits everyone, the practice of loving-kindness really ought to become widespread. But if we under- take the practice of metta, we must never lose sight of the unique possibilities offered by vipassana meditation.
