A DISCOURSE ON VIPASSANĀ
 
(Spiritual Insight)
 
Delivered at the Yangon University Dhammāyon by the Venerable Mahāsī Sayādaw
 
(May 1974)
 SUBJECT OF THE DISCOURSE As is usual, the main emphasis of this evening's discourse will be on
Vipassanā
because it is a subject of vital importance which behooes ateacher to deliver for the instruction of his audience as much as it commandscareful attention on the part of the latter to listen and learn.  The Buddha had set a sequence for the subjects. He would address inhis sermons, and they were enumerated in the following order. (i)
Dāna Kathā,
which deals with the subject of alms-giving or charity, anddescribes how one should offer alms or practise charity; and what kind of consequence or fruition would result thereby (ii)
Sīla Kathā,
which deals with the subject of morality, such as keeping thefive precepts, and explains how morality is developed, and what benefits itspractice will bring (iii)
Sagga Kathā,
which describes the delights of the Devas' blissfulexistence attainable through the practice of 
Dāna
and observance of 
Sīla
