Welcome to Dhamma Pali Vipassana Meditation Center
Introduction to Vipassana
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, i.e., an Art Of Living. For introduction to Vipassana meditation technique, please see what is Vipassana.
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. There are no charges for the courses, not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from old students, who, having completed a course & experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to benefit from the technique. Description and timetable of a typical ten day course is available in the Code of Discipline.
