Thanks. I don't know when or how that got broken, but I have fixed it now.

The correct link was showing in the Index Page of Mahāsi Sayādaw's books.

Hello Bhikkhu pesala and all forumites, could you recommend me your favorite Sayadaw book, or best two or three.

Much appreciated :namaste:

I have just uploaded Dhamma Therapy Revisited, which is a collection of case histories regarding remarkable cures through vipassanā meditation.

It was compiled by the Venerable Mahāsi Sayādaw from various reports, and translated by Venerable Aggacitta Bhikkhu. I have made some minor edits and reformatted it with a Unicode font for easier copying of Pāli texts and quotations for use on forums, etc.

I have just updated A Discourse on the Anattalakkhaṇa Sutta. The changes are very minor — just typos.

Please Note: My free web-host now imposes a daily sleep time, which I have set to start from 13:00 GMT.

The oceanofpdf website which hosted the full manual of insight is taken down and i dont know of alternative sites so i will leave the full manual of insight links here and it would be good if someone would find a place to host them permanently;

pdf; https://ufile.io/1bdc0
epub; https://ufile.io/bhqx4

links expire in 30 days
'Bhikkhus, possessing three qualities, a bhikkhu is practicing the unmistaken way and has laid the groundwork for the destruction of the taints. What three? Here, a bhikkhu guards the doors of the sense faculties, observes moderation in eating, and is intent on wakefulness. He should develop perception of unattractiveness so as to abandon lust... good will so as to abandon ill will... mindfulness of in-&-out breathing so as to cut off distractive thinking... the perception of inconstancy so as to uproot the conceit, 'I am.
