Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills.
Vipassana is an art of living – a way of life.
While it is the essence of what the Buddha taught, it is not a religion; rather, it is the cultivation of human values leading to a life which is good for oneself and good for others.
Vipassana meditation courses are conducted in ‘Noble Silence’, which is silence of body, speech and mind. Participants agree to refrain from any communicating with their co-meditators.
You do not need to be a Buddhist to practice Vipassana. People from many religions and no religion have found this form of meditation helpful and beneficial.
