What is Vipassyana meditation?

In fact, Vipassyana meditation is a scientific method to make the mind healthy, calm and clean. It is an effective method of introspection. This results in self-purification. In other words it can be called exercise of mind.

Vipassana can be translated as “Insight,” a clear awareness of exactly what is happening as it happens. Samatha can be translated as “concentration” or “tranquility.” It is a state in which the mind is brought to rest, focused only on one item and not allowed to wander. When this is done, a deep calm pervades body and mind, a state of tranquility which must be experienced to be understood.In fact, the word Vipassyana is derived from the Pali language word 'pasna', which means "to see" (to see the thing as it is, in its true form).

This technique is thousands of years ago, it was originated by Mahatma Buddha about 2600 years ago. This lore disappeared in the middle and it is believed that this lore disappears every 5000 years. The late Satya Narayan Goenka brought it from Myanmar to India in 1969.

As the moving breathing work is going on, sitting and watching it is called Vipassyana meditation. We will try to understand this with the help of examples, such as sitting on the side of a road, looking at the passengers, what he is doing and where he is going, he sees all his activities. Sitting on the banks of the river, he sees the flowing stream of the river and the fish present in it.

In Vipassana mediation, the meditator uses his concentration as a tool by which his awareness can chip away at the wall of illusion that cuts him off from the living light of reality. It is a gradual process of ever-increasing awareness into the inner workings of reality itself. It takes years, but one day the meditator chisels through that wall and tumbles into the presence of light. The transformation is complete. It’s called Liberation, and it’s permanent.
