Pa-Auk Tawya Sayadaw

Postby LonesomeYogurt » Mon Jun 18, 2012 10:48 pm

Does anyone have a good resource for the "Pa-Auk Meditation System?" I'm not finding many resources. Any quick summary or more detailed examination out there?

Thanks!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Shaila Catherine's books are an excellent resource on his method.

Focussed and fearless is a good Intro, Wisdom Deep and Wide if you really want to go into it in detail.

Knowing & Seeing is his masterpiece. Start there.

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

It's my understanding she wrote those books, as sort of how-to guidebooks to be used on retreat, at the request of Pa-Auk. So yea, Shaila's books are probably your best bet.

I haven't finished Wisdom Wide and Deep, but I'm very impressed with what I've read so far. Shaila has extensive teaching expreience and knowledge, and one of the delights of that book is the extended referencing of material back to the suttas.

It's also written as a "multi level" document, with advice for everyday life practice as well as practices that will most likely require retreats to master.
