Description

Featuring accounts by practitioners living everyday lives, this introduction to Vipassana meditation provides a way for listeners to learn more about its benefits. Explained is what takes place before, during, and after a 10-day silent meditation retreat. Each participant follows the same discipline: silence, a basic moral code known as the five precepts, a prescribed timetable, a vegetarian diet, and a commitment to practicing only what is taught at the retreat.

This first-person account of the retreat reveals the challenges and benefits of facing reality head-on through direct observation and of learning to observe instead of reacting to thoughts, emotions, and sensations. In addition, the ways in which Vipassana meditation techniques are applied to individuals, institutions, children, prisoners, work places, and fields of science and social action are examined. Although based on the teachings of the Buddha, the practice of Vipassana as heard in this book has broad appeal to other religious and nonsectarian audiences.
