Mahasi Sayadaw's "The Progress of Insight" in Pāli?

Post by Sati1 » Thu Apr 28, 2016 1:25 pm

Hello,

Does anybody know where I could find the version in Pāli of Mahasi Sayadaw's "The Progress of Insight", as he originally wrote it? I am trying to get a better sense of the text that Nyanaponika used for his translation into English.

Many thanks,

But it is this unshakable liberation of mind that is the goal of this spiritual life, its heartwood, and its end," (MN 29, transl. Ven Bhikkhu Bodhi)

Take a look at the attached. It's work in progress, that never got finished, but the Pāli is all there.
