Watch the material suggested in the Videos section.
Note: Most of the texts by Mahasi Sayadaw included in MVMR are offered in downloadable e-book formats for easier offline reading.
What to read next
Although the material provided by MVMR is more than enough to get you started, if you want to have a deeper knowledge of Mahasi Vipassana, you should definitely read his book The Manual of Insight.
The person behind MVMR is far from being considered an expert in Mahasi Vipassana or Buddhism in general and thus is unable to provide any guidance or advice.
This website was created by a beginner and is nothing more than a “personal notebook” published online, aiming to be a helpful resource for other people around the world with the same interest in insight meditation.
