The birth of the noting technique

Postby badscooter » Mon Aug 06, 2012 2:39 pm

Just wondering if any one knows if the noting technique used in the Mahasi tradition was invented by the Mahasi Sayadaw or was it something passed down through lineage? I don't see anything else like it in any other tradition. Mantra meditation seems to be the only other that also uses words in its meditation. Its also hard to find canonical reference to the technique of mental labeling.

Can anybody shed any light on this.

It has been awhile since I listened to this, but it may address your question:

Thanks Tilt, great audio from Kearney.. He goes into vipassana and Mahasi pretty well, but I don't know if he goes too far into the history of the noting technique.. Which is fine, I was just curious thats all. :smile:
thanks again

Much thanks to everyone for your time and replies. I will be looking into the book Dmytro. And Mike gives a nice way of seeing it in the suttas.

Great thinking man, I also prefer his book must be on sale so that we can get detail about important stuff easily and within low cost.
