Vipassana Meditation (An Introduction By Mr. S. N. Goenka)-Hindi

Address By Mr. S. N. Goenka at the United Nations: In late August 2000, Goenkaji participated in the Millennium World Peace Summit—a gathering of 1000 of the world’s religious and spiritual leaders, held at the United Nations under the auspices of Secretary-General Kofi Annan. The purpose of the meeting was to promote tolerance, foster peace, and encourage inter-religious dialogue. With the many different viewpoints represented, the potential for disagreement was strong. In his presentation to the delegates, Goenkaji tried to highlight what they, and all spiritual paths have in common: the universal Dhamma. His remarks were received with repeated ovations.

Vipassana in business: In 2009, a short film was produced that describes how senior business leaders in India from across industries & sectors cope with uncertainty and change in a challenging market environment. In a series of candid interviews, senior executives discuss how the practice of Vipassana meditation enables them to more effectively manage their own stress, increase employee engagement and productivity, face the pressures of competition and make decisions from a base of personal wisdom and authenticity.
