WISDOM DEVELOPS SAMĀDHI
By Venerable Ācariya Mahā Boowa Ñāṇasampanno
&
Translated by Venerable Ācariya Paññāvaḍḍho Thera
THIS BOOK IS A GIFT OF DHAMMA & PRINTED ONLY FOR FREE DISTRIBUTION
A Guide to the Practice of the Buddha’s Meditation Methods

TRANSLATOR’S INTRODUCTION
This book ‘Wisdom Develops Samādhi’ is one of the few books written
by Ācariya Mahā Boowa (Bhikkhu Ñāṇasampanno) who is now the abbot
of Baan Taad Forest Monastery, which is situated in the country-side
close to the village where he was born and brought up. When he was
old enough he ordained as a monk and some while afterwards he went
away to find a meditation teacher. He was directed towards the Venerable
Ācariya Mun (Bhūridatta Thera) and Ācariya Mahā Boowa has said
that as soon he met Ācariya Mun, he knew that Ācariya Mun was his
teacher. He learnt and practised under the guidance of Ācariya Mun
for nine years until Ācariya Mun died at the age of eighty years, after
which Ācariya Mahā Boowa practised the way on his own in the hills
and forests of Thailand. He then wandered throughout the country,
going to nearly every province until he was offered land by supporters
near his home village to build a forest monastery. Since then, he settled
down and has lived there since.
Many words in ‘Wisdom Develops Samādhi’ have been left in Pāli because
there is often no adequate translation in English; it is hoped the
reader will forgive any difficulties that this may make, but it is felt
better that the reader should not-understand rather than mis-understand.
However, a fairly comprehensive glossary has been included at
the back, which should cover all the Pāli words that are not actually
explained in the text.
It is hoped that this book will bring the Dhamma to many people
and that it will help people to realise that the living Dhamma is still
extant and is not just a thing of the distant past or of the distant future
when the next Buddha comes.
May all who read this book gain from it that which will aid them
towards the supreme happiness of Nibbāna.
