Vipassana : An Art of Living.
The technique of Vipassana meditation as taught by Acharya S.N. Goenka is for one and all. There is no trace of sectarianism or casteism in it. People from all religious faiths and castes can learn Vipassana and benefit from it. There is no conversion into any organized religion.
Vipassana eradicates mental defilements such as anger, hatred, ill will, fear, ego and greed which make us miserable. It helps us to develop selfless love, compassion and good-will, and enables us to live a happy and harmonious life.
There are many Vipassana centers in India and around the world. There are no fees for Vipassan courses, not even for lodge and board. At the end of the course, if one develops the violation to help others, one may donate towards the expenses of future courses.
Those who have taken ten day course in this tradition may meditate in the Grand Meditation hall under the relics of the Buddha at the Global Vipassana Pagoda.
