Asura cave from Off the Beaten Path pilgrimage
There is no more worldly existence for the wise one who,
like the earth, resents nothing,
who is firm as a high pillar
and as pure as a deep pool free from mud.

New BPE Release!

Manual of the Excellent Man
Enjoy the new Pariyatti Edition of this classic title! The Venerable Mahathera Ledi Sayadaw wrote this manual in reply to a layperson requesting guidance in developing insight, clarification of doctrinal aspects, and how to advance from being a blind worldling to a wise and virtuous person, i.e. one who has the eye of knowledge.
“This great opportunity of living in the era of the Buddha’s teaching is the time for quenching the fires within. The only worthwhile task to set oneself is to root out the pernicious wrong view of personality, an illusion that does not actually exist. This task must be taken up at the right time which is now. Once the moment is past, the chance is lost!”

– Ven. Ledi Sayadaw

"The highlights for me, were the group sittings at the various sites and the several one-day courses at Indian Vipassana Centers. These helped us bond as meditators, and anchored the pilgrimage in its proper mission.
Three one-day courses was the perfect number to balance with the excursions. Thanks to these, we could replenish energy and regain focus."

Yogā ve jāyatī bhūri,

ayogā bhūrisaṅkhayo.

Etaṃ dvedhāpathaṃ ñatvā bhavāya vibhavāya ca,

tathāttānaṃ niveseyya yathā bhūri pavaḍḍhati.




Wisdom springs from meditation;

without meditation wisdom wanes.

Having known these two paths of progress and decline,

let one so conduct oneself that one's wisdom may increase.
