Mogok Sayadaw was beleived to be an arahat and left relics when his body was cremated and his method of practice is very popular in Burma.
But I am not sure if the transcription of the Sayadaw's discourse on the practice in English is available on the web; can any one help????
Nowadays, in myanmar, Mogok Sayadaw's Vipassana Way is the most well known and has being practiced most by Myanmar people.
Almost every ward/township of the our country, Myanmar has Mogok Vipassana meditation centre which will be small or big.
As much as I can know about Mogok Sayadaw's Vipassana Way;
Sayadaw Gyi mentioned and taught the importance of the role of the understanding the Dependent Origination(Paticca Samuppada). and explained what is Vipassana in details.
In his way, he taught his disciples not to note relative truths or not to do meditation at first.
At first, it is necessary to have right understanding for Vipassana Meditation via knowledge based on learning (Suta-maya Panna).
Without right understanding, any meditation will be less advantages.
Right understanding is the most importance in Vipassana practice.
To have right understanding in Vipassana, at first we need to understand the Dependent Origination(Paticca Samuppada) by knowledge (Suta-maya Panna).
(i.e we need first to accept the truth that there is no something, someone, individual , I , me , mine, you , yours but just arising and disappearing nature __impermanent nature which is forever constant and its illusive creation to think the relative truths__created truths as reality (Just dukkha sacca and samudaya sacca) in Sankhara Loka.)
Here is my collection of the Mogok vipassana method ebooks in English in below link;
There will be six ebooks;http://www.mediafire.com/?twtj4aldjdowt
