Ledi Sayadaw U Ñanadhaja (Burmese: လယ်တီဆရာတော် ဦးဉာဏဓဇ, 1 December 1846 – 27 June 1923) was a compelling Theravada Buddhist friar. He was perceived from a youthful age as being produced in both the hypothesis (Abhidharma) and routine of Buddhism as was respected as being academic. He composed many books on Dhamma in Burmese and these were open even to a genuine layman, thus he was in charge of spreading Dhamma to all levels of society and restoring the conventional routine of vipassana contemplation, making it more accessible for renunciates and laypeople alike.

Sayadaw started his learns at age 20 in Mandalay at Thanjaun. While there he was thought to be a brilliant and driven youthful minister however his work was academic; there is no proof that Sayadaw occupied with a genuine contemplation work on amid his years in Mandalay. Leaving Mandalay after an extraordinary fire in 1883 brought about the loss of his home and his composed work to that time, Sayadaw come back to the town of his childhood.

Before long, Sayadaw established a backwoods cloister in the "Ledi woodland" and started honing and showing concentrated contemplation. It was from this cloister he would take his name, Ledi Sayadaw, signifying "regarded educator of the Ledi backwoods." In 1885, Ledi Sayadaw composed the Nwa-myitta-sa (နွားမေတ္တာစာ), a wonderful composition letter that contended that Burmese Buddhists ought not murder steers and eat meat, since Burmese ranchers relied on upon them as helper animals weight to keep up their vocations, that the advertising of hamburger for human utilization undermined the annihilation of bison and steers and that the practice and was biologically unsound. He hence drove effective hamburger blacklists amid the provincial period, regardless of the nearness of meat eating among local people and impacted an era of Burmese patriots in receiving this position.

In 1900, Sayadaw surrendered control of the religious community and sought after more engaged contemplation in the mountain gives in close to the banks of the Chindwin River.

At different circumstances he went all through Burma. Due as far as anyone is concerned of pariyatti (hypothesis), he could compose many books on Dhamma in both Pali and Burmese dialects, for example, Paramattha-dipani (Manual of Ultimate Truth), Nirutta-dipani, a book on Pali sentence structure and The Manuals of Dhamma. In the meantime he kept alive the unadulterated custom of patipatti (practice) by educating the method of Vipassana to a couple people.

Ledi Sayadaw was one of the preeminent Burmese Buddhist figures of his age. He was instrumental in resuscitating the conventional routine of Vipassana, making it more accessible for renunciates and laypeople alike. Huge numbers of his works are as yet accessible, incorporating into English through the Buddhist Publication Society.

Among Ledi's pupils, Theik-cha-daung Sayadaw(1871-1931) and Mohnyin Sayadaw(1872-1964) are outstanding. Theik-cha-daung Sayadaw instructed the layman Saya Thetgyi, who might go ahead to get preparing from Ledi himself. Thetgyi's ancestry proceeds to the present, the most noticeable being U Wunnathiri and U Ba Khin and his devotees, others incorporate SN Goenka.
