Inward Book Review:

Western society has never been more interested in interiority. Indeed, it seems more and more people are deliberately looking inward--toward the mind, the body, or both. Michal Pagis's Inward focuses on one increasingly popular channel for the introverted gaze: vipassana meditation, which has spread from Burma to more than forty countries and counting. Lacing her account with vivid anecdotes and personal stories, Pagis turns our attention not only to the practice of vipassana but to the communities that have sprung up around it. Inward is also a social history of the westward diffusion of Eastern religious practices spurred on by the lingering effects of the British colonial presence in India. At the same time Pagis asks knotty questions about what happens when we continually turn inward, as she investigates the complex relations between physical selves, emotional selves, and our larger social worlds. Her book sheds new light on evergreen topics such as globalization, social psychology, and the place of the human body in the enduring process of self-awareness.

Doctrinal Backgrounds of Vipassana-Meditation Book Review:

Vipassan -meditation (or practice) has become popular in South East Asia and the West. However, these practices aiming at reaching insight are taught in many varieties. The focus of this book is on the doctrinal sources of a number of vipassan -practices. Part one considers a number of methods by modern teachers and scholar-monks about vipassan -meditation, and compares these with the canonical Pali discourses they refer to.In Part two the author analyses which principles related to insight and practices to develop insight have been widely accepted in the Pali discourses. Futhermore, a comparison with some discourses available in English from Chinese versions is offered. This study is written for those who have a practical or theoretical interest in meditation techniques such as mindfulness and vipassan . In particular participants in retreats, who note that many different methods are taught, will find this a useful book."

Vipassana Meditation and the Scientific Worldview (2nd Edition) Book Review:

We have lived in an era during which the spirituality intrinsic to science has become obvious. The universe is not random. It contains patterns and paths. This is called the information-state of the universe, and it organizes the materials and energies that form our bodies and minds. We are each microcosms; downloaded into our small selves are a vast array of directives and limits, the laws of science, that govern stars as well as our hearts and minds. We can gain access to some of the wisdom of this universal, lawful reality through meditation. As we observe our body sensations with equanimity, we come in contact with basic laws of physics, like entropy, or the decay of aggregates over time, and we also encounter basic laws of psychology, like the fact that social love, Mettā, leaves us happier than anger or fear. We may become self-balanced to face contingencies. It is science, not mysticism or religion, that reveals the value of Vipassana as a vestibule to ultimate realities, and highlights it as a practical guide to the psychology of well-lived lives. We are each unique snowflakes, patterns and lace, melting in the cosmic storm. We arise and pass inside a universe, a web, a Dhamma. We become aware of the scriptures that are inscribed inside us and that guide our wellbeing.

Vipassana Meditation and Mindfulness Book Review:

Mindfulness in itself is a powerful tool. But Vipassana sees mindfulness as one tool among many. Mindfulness isn't practiced solely to improve oneself, but to effect positive change in the world. Compassion for others is actively fostered and reflection on beneficial behavior encouraged. This book is an introduction to the philosophy behind Vipassana Meditation, and information on how to practice Vipassana style mindfulness in your daily life. It includes information on various meditation techniques, and about the various meditation retreats offered worldwide. If you can't, you'll find suggestions in this book for a DIY retreat, or how to start a daily practice of your own. Here is a few of the topics covered: Simple Vipassana meditation techniques What is mindfulness meditation What is insight meditation The Benefits of vipassana meditation How to practice meditation at home Why medidate Buddhist meditation methods Buddhist insights Vipassana meditation effects Life after vipassana How to make Vipassana a daily practice Vipassana meaning Vipassana sitting Mindfulness has been a powerful tool, enabling me to quiet my mind when I need to, and granting me the strength and focus needed to address problems rather than worry about them. As I continued on my mindfulness journey, I began to feel that there was something missing. I then noticed that my spiritual side was unfulfilled. As I explored first Yoga, then Vipassana Meditation, I found what I was looking for. I hope that this book does the same for you.

Karma and Chaos Book Review:

These eight essays explore the interface between psychiatry, science, and the timeless teachings of the Buddha. Drawn from the personal experiences of a therapist and practitioner of Vipassana meditation, this work explores meditation’s similarities and differences with psychotherapeutic and scientific endeavors. In the title essay, parallels are drawn between the atomic synthesis of free choice and lawful consequence in Chaos Theory and karma, offering contemporary insights into one of Buddhism’s core concepts. The empirical roots of meditation, its relevance to daily life, and the challenges and benefits of daily practice of Vipassana meditation are also addressed. Practical examples for continued observation outside of formal meditation retreats guide readers in incorporating Buddhist practice into daily life.

Beyond the Breath Book Review:

Beyond the Breath is one of the first books to give a complete overview and description of sensation based vipassana meditation, the form of mediation thought of as the original method of meditation as used by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. This form of meditation, brought to the West by S.N. Geoneka, provides a means to experience emotions directly and nonverbally—accessing the mind through the body. One of the main principles of this school of meditation is that meditation alone is not sufficient practice, but that it must be combined with a whole-life and ethical commitment. M.Glickman's approach is unique—he takes a mediation practice deeply rooted within a historic Buddhist framework, and gives it a modern-day, scientific spin—he presents sensation based viapassana meditaiton and Buddhist principles in 20th-century language, secularizing ideas that may sound exotic, off-putting, or out-dated. Glickman's passion for the topic, as well as his great understanding of Buddhist concepts, make this an inspiring read.

Burma’s Mass Lay Meditation Movement Book Review:

Burma's Mass Lay Meditation Movement: Buddhism and the Cultural Construction of Power describes a transformation in Buddhist practice in contemporary Burma. This revitalization movement has had real consequences for how the oppressive military junta, in power since the early 1960s, governs the country. Drawing on more than ten years of extensive fieldwork in Burma, Ingrid Jordt explains how vipassanā meditation has brought about a change of worldview for millions of individuals, enabling them to think and act independently of the totalitarian regime. She addresses human rights as well as the relationship between politics and religion in a country in which neither the government nor the people clearly separates the two. Jordt explains how the movement has been successful in its challenge to the Burmese military dictatorship where democratically inspired resistance movements have failed. Jordt's unsurpassed access to the centers of political and religious power in Burma becomes the reader's opportunity to witness the political workings of one of the world's most secretive and tyrannically ruled countries. Burma's Mass Lay Meditation Movement is a valuable contribution to Buddhist studies as well as anthropology, religious studies, and political science.

Inside-out Book Review:

"This thesis explores the relationship between S. N. Goenka's technique of Vipassana meditation, an approach inspired by the Buddha designed for the liberation of human suffering, and constructive social engagement. The first chapter introduces the general field of Theravada Buddhist meditation practices to demonstrate how Goenka's approach conforms to and differs from traditional Theravada meditation. The second chapter provides an overview of Goenka's reformist movement, while the third chapter investigates his methods of dissemination and the supporting theories behind them in light of traditional Pali canonical sources. The final chapter examines the notion that social reparation depends on the alleviation of individual afllictive mental states. This claim is analysed through reports concerning the therapeutic effects of Vipassana on the practitioner, and through case-studies regarding the integration of the technique into the curriculums of various social institutions in the fields of health, corrections, and education." --

Realizing Change Book Review:

Featuring accounts by practitioners living everyday lives, this introduction to Vipassana meditation provides a way for readers to learn more about its benefits. Explained is what takes place before, during, and after a ten-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 illustrated in this book has broad appeal to other religious and nonsectarian audiences.
