The grandfather of Mr. S. N. Goenka, principal teacher of Vipassana meditation, settled in Myanmar (Burma), moving from Rajasthan, India at the age of 18. Since his childhood, Mr. Goenka was profoundly influenced by his grandfather, whom he fondly called ‘Baba’.
In this autobiographical narrative, Mr. Goenka has shared inspirational incidents from Baba’s life with gratitude. He has also described Baba’s legacy of immortal virtues and spontaneous poetry, which Mr. Goenka cherished throughout his life. This book also contains the history of Vipassana meditation in Myanmar, Mr. Goenka’s life story in candid words and his journey on the path of Vipassana meditation, with few rare incidents of the initial courses in India.
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators.
