Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient meditation techniques. It is a process of self-purification by self-observation. The technique is a universal remedy for universal problems and has nothing to do with any organized religion or sect. It can be freely practiced by anyone without conflict due to race, community or religion, and will prove equally beneficial to one and all. For more information, please see the introduction to Vipassana.
To learn Vipassana Meditation one needs to develop one's own experience during a residential ten day course. A description and timetable of a typical ten day course may be found in the Code of Discipline. If you are interested in attending a ten day course, please review the prerequisite and application sections for guidelines and instructions, then proceed to the course schedule to select a course and apply.
