Sayagyi U Ba Khin repeated the Burmese tradition that those who live in accordance with these Teachings will meet Buddha Ari Metteyya. It is even believed that the coming Buddha's power will be such that he will be able to reach people who have lived up to the Teachings in this life but who have done deeds in the past which lead to their being born in lower realms before he comes. Some hints of this are found in Pali texts which show the power of sharing merits.

I was wondering if anyone can provide a reading list for Sayagyi U Ba Khin's method and S. N. Goenka's variant. (I have heard they are slightly different?)
I have only found very basic info but was hoping that some of the posters may have a good idea to track down more "detailed and full" explanations of this insight technique much like the literature on the mahasi method which is so broad in it's depth and descriptive.

I should also ask to the members as well as practitioners does this method find home in the suttas.
I'd love to hear the opinions of some of the senior members.
I know so little of this tradition. I just wonder if it's more modern variation as much of the modern practice seems to be or if is in route with classical/orthodox theravada.
