The Burmese vipassana movement has its roots in the 19th century, when Theravada Buddhism came to be influenced by western modernism,  and some monks tried to restore the Buddhist practice of meditation. Based on the commentaries, Ledi Sayadaw popularized vipassana meditation for lay people, teaching samatha and stressing the practice of satipatthana to acquire vipassana insight into the three marks of existence as the main means to attain the beginning of awakening and become a stream-enterer. It was highly popularized in the 20th century in traditional Theravada countries by Mahasi Sayadaw , who introduced the "New Burmese Satipatthana Method". It also gained a large following in the west, due to westerners who learned vipassana from Mahasi Sayadaw, S. Goenka , and other Burmese teachers. Some also studied with Thai Buddhist teachers, who are more critical of the commentarial tradition, and stress the joined practice of samatha and vipassana.
