The Vipassana International Meditation Center is conducting a 1-day seminar on 1st June at The Times Of India building. The seminar is about the technique of Vipassana - a simple, practical way to achieve real peace of mind and lead a happy, useful life.
Vipassana means "to see things as they really are", and is a logical process of mental purification through self-observation. From time to time, we all experience agitation, frustration and disharmony. When we suffer, we do not keep our misery limited to ourselves; instead, we keep distributing it to others. Certainly this is not a proper way to live. We all long to live at peace within ourselves, and with those around us. How, then, can we live peacefully?
Vipassana enables us to experience peace and harmony: it purifies the mind, freeing it from suffering and the deep-seated causes of suffering. The practice leads step-by-step to the highest spiritual goal, of full liberation from all mental defilements.
The timings of the seminar are 6pm to 8pm, and the seminar will be handled by S N Goenka and his assistant teachers. All courses are run solely on the basis of voluntarily offered donations. There is no fee charged for any seminars conducted by Vipassana.
Vipassana is one of India's most ancient meditation techniques. It was rediscovered 2,500 years ago by Goutama the Buddha. Five centuries after the Buddha, the noble heritage of Vipassana disappeared from India. It has been reintroduced to India, as well as to citizens from more than 80 other countries, by S N Goenka.
Goenka was authorized to teach Vipassana by the renowned Burmese Vipassana teacher, Sayagyi U Ba Khin. Before he died in 1971, Sayagyi was able to see one of his most cherished dreams realized. He had the strong wish that Vipassana should return to India, the land of its origin, to help it come out of its manifold problems. From India, he felt sure it would then spread throughout the world for the benefit of all mankind.
