What is Vipassana Meditation?
Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was rediscovered by Gotama Buddha more than 2500 years ago and was taught by him as a universal remedy for universal ills, i.e., an Art Of Living. For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation, an Introduction to Vipassana by Mr. Goenka is available.
How to learn it?
The technique of Vipassana Meditation is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results.
Where to learn it?
Worldwide there are now over 150 Meditation Centres. After reviewing the Code of Discipline for the courses in Vipassana Meditation and checking the schedule of courses in your area, you may then make an Application for a course at that location. Vipassana Courses are even being conducted in prisons, with great success and wonderful benefits for the inmates who participate.
Courses are run solely on a donation basis. There are no charges for the courses, not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from those who have completed a course, experienced the benefits of Vipassana, and wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the Teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration; they and those who organise the courses volunteer their time.
