Description

For centuries in India, the Buddha and his teachings have been accused as being pessimistic. These misunderstandings developed when the Buddha’s teachings were lost in India and most of the world. This was largely due to disappearance of the applied teachings (the technique of Vipassana meditation) in the initial years and loss of words of the Buddha (Pali Canon) in the later years.

Fortunately, this liberating technique was preserved in its pristine purity in Myanmar (Burma) by an unbroken chain of teacher-student tradition. With its revival in India and the world, it is again shedding light on the efficacy of the Buddha’s real teaching, bringing great benefit to the humanity.

This book contains reasons for fundamental misunderstanding that have evolved about the Buddha & his teaching and has resolved them with lucid examples.

This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators.
