Vipassana meditation changed my life, I was introduced to Vipassana in 1994, their first meditation centre is in Igatpuri just 40 km from my place and I am fortunate that my wife also practices Vipassana meditation.
Vipassana is taught at various meditation centers around the word and to learn it one had to attend 10 days residential course and one had to follow very strict rules.
- to abstain from killing any being,
- to abstain from stealing;
- to abstain from all sexual activity;
- to abstain from telling lies;
- to abstain from all intoxicants.
You need to remain silent for ten days means that you cannot speak to anyone however you can talk to the dhamma worker and the assistant teacher that too it’s limited to any issues you are related to meditation technique. You cannot read any books, nor you can carry a mobile.
Your day starts in morning 4 am and ends at 930Pm, and in between, there are breaks for lunch and other essential activities. You can find the course timetable here. All the Vipassana courses are free, and it runs on the charity given by fellow meditators and also it’s practised in prison all over the world.
