Mogok Sayadaw U Vimala (27 December 1899 - 17 October 1962) was a renowned Theravada Buddhist monk and vipassana meditation master.
The Mogok technique, developed and taught by Mogok Sayawdaw, elaborates on Buddha's teachings and emphasizes on the awareness of 'Arising' (phyit in Myanmar) and 'Passing away' (pyet in Myanmar) of everything, i.e., ( Impermanence or anicca) in body and mind. Sayadaw is known for his exposition of Paticcasamuppada (Dependent Origination), Sa?s?ra (endless rounds of rebirth) and the importance of practicing meditation Vipassana.
