For the Benefit of Many is a compilation of questions asked of Goenkaji by students, with his succinct, practical and always encouraging responses.
Since the early 1980s in India and around the world, there has been an astonishing increase in the number of Vipassana courses offered each year and the number of centres devoted to the practice of this teaching. This growth has been possible because of the selfless service of thousands of meditators. Working in many different capacities, they have freely given help so that still more people could take steps on the path of liberation.
To ensure that their service yields the best results, over the years Goenkaji has frequently given guidance to all who participate in this work. At yearly meetings in India or on visits to various centres, he has spoken about many different aspects of Dhamma practice and service. The transcripts of those talks and question and answer sessions are the sources for this volume.
