The Art of Living Book Review:

The Ancient Meditation Technique that Brings Real Peace of Mind Vipassand-bhavand, "the development of insight," embodies the essence of the teaching of the Buddha. As taught by S. N. Goenka, this path to self-awareness is extraordinary in its simplicity, its lack of dogma and, above all, its results. The Vipassana technique can be successfully applied by anyone. Based on the lectures and writings of S. N. Goenka--and prepared under his direct guidance--The Art of Living shows how this technique can be used to solve problems, develop unused potential, and lead a peaceful, productive life. It includes stories by S. N. Goenka, as well as answers to students' questions, that convey a vivid sense of his teaching. S. N. Goenka's Vipassana courses have attracted thousands of people of every background. Unique among teachers of meditation, Goenka is a retired industrialist and former leader of the Indian Community in Burma. Although a layman, his teaching has won the approval of senior Buddhist monks in Burma, India, and Sri Lanka, a number of whom have taken courses under his guidance. Despite his magnetism, he has no wish to be a "guru" --instead he teaches self-responsibility. This is the first systematic study of his teachings to appear in English.

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.

Vipassana Meditation for Beginners the Most Effective Meditation Technique Book Review:

Vipassana - "To See Things As They Are"Vipassana means, "to see things as they are". It is to "put aside whatever is evident - the visible truth - and to concentrate on the reality as it is." Vipassana is the practice of focusing close attention to the now. In simpler words, Vipassana is a way of achieving true happiness and a peaceful state of mind.This tradition has been passed down from generation to generation, from teacher to teacher. However, the Vipassana that we know of today started with the Enlightened One, none other than Buddha himself.The Vipassana tradition circles around the teachings of Buddha, which is known as Dhamma or Dharma. Some of the main points of the True Dharma are the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, and the Five Precepts. All these and other teachings of the Blessed One all converge to attain one goal - the end of suffering.The Four Truths is the central doctrine of the True Dharma. Without the knowledge of these Truths, one can never achieve the end of suffering. The First Noble Truth (Dukkha) stresses that life is suffering. Physical and mental suffering is produced by direct causes, loss or deprivation, and the impermanency of all things. The Second Noble Truth dwells on understanding the root of the suffering - the desire (Raga). We often crave or desire many things and experiences, and whether we attain the desired or not, it all inevitably leads to suffering. The Truth of the Cessation of Suffering is the Third Truth. After identifying the source of suffering, we must eliminate it. Finally, the Fourth Truth tells us that the only way to truly end suffering is to become enlightened. Vipassana is the key to enlightenment.The Noble Eightfold Paths are the comprehensive paths one must take to achieve the end of suffering. It consists of three practices - morality, concentration, and Wisdom...In this book you will find the steps and strategies on how to battle stress, depression, fear and anxiety through the practice of Vipassana meditation.Here, you'll get a grasp of what this technique is and how it came to be.

Samatha Vipassana Meditation in Accordance with the Four Foundations of Mindfulness to Reach Lord Buddha Dhammakayas and Nibbana Book Review:

The Most Profound Teachings of Luang Phor Wat Paknam Phra Mongkol-Thepmuni (Luang Phor Sodh) Presented and Explained by Phra Thepyanmongkol Phra Thepyanmongkol has been my student since 1973. At that time, he was a layman, named Mr. Sermchai Polpatthanarithi. I taught him samatha-vipassanā meditation based on Lord Buddha’s Four Foundations of Mindfulness to Dhammakāya and Nibbāna and the transcendental knowledge or vijjā of seed-element or dhatudhamma purifi cation, also called āsavakkhayaāa, which I had learned from and practiced with Luang Phor Sodh until he passed away. Then, I assigned Mr. Sermchai and Phra Khru Kaisornvilard (Natthanan Kulsiri) to collect the teachings of Luang Phor Sodh in order to publish them as a book. These teachings had been recorded by Phra Khru Vinaitorn Jou (Pali Grade 5) since 1938. Later, the Dhamma Practice for People Project of Wat Paknam Basijareaon was initiated for propagating Dhammakaya Meditation. On August 16th 1977, its committee published 500 copies of the fi rst book named, “Tactics and Strategy of Advanced Dhātudhamma Purifi cation (āsavakkhayaāa)” for distribution to those who reached advanced Dhammakāya Meditation. In 1985, 1200 copies of the second book were published. This was followed in 1993 by the third book, as well as 2,000 copies of the special edition incorporating volumes 1, 2 and 3. These were all for distribution to those who reached advanced Dhammakāya Meditation. The special edition was entitled “Vijjā Magga-phala Bisadarn 1-2-3” [Detailed Transcendental Path and Fruit Knowledge 1-2-3]. In addition, on October 10th 1984, 1200 copies of 63 Dhamma Talks by Luang Phor Sodh transcribed by Phra Pipatdhammagani (Umnat Upagutto) were published and distributed by the Dhamma Practice for People Project of Wat Paknam Basijareaon and the Dhammakāya Foundation for the 100th anniversary of Luang Phor Sodh’s decease. This book was entitled, “Biography, Work and 63 Dhamma Talks of Luang Phor Watpaknam (Phra Mongkol-Thepmuni).” FOREWORD IX Now, Phra Thepyanmongkol, Abbot of Wat Luang Phor Sodh Dhammakayaram and the President of the National Coordination Center of Provincial Meditation Institutes of Thailand, has collected and explained the teaching of Luang Phor Sodh in accordance with Four Foundations of Mindfulness to Dhammakāya and Nibbāna. The goal of this arduous effort is to substantiate that Dhammakāya Meditation as taught by Luang Phor Sodh is the Right Teaching of Lord Buddha based on evidence from the Pali Canon and to help Buddhists to understand this profound teaching better. Once, Luang Phor Sodh said to Somdej Pa or former Phra Sangharaja Pun Punnasiri, who was his nephew, “You will see that in the future, all people across the country will practice the way Wat Paknam is teaching.” Phra Thepyanmongkol deserves profound praise and gratitude for all his hard work in so many facets. I would like to congratulate Phra Thepyanmongkol and his team for their stupendous effort in completing this book, “Samatha- Vipassanā meditation in Accordance with the Four Foundations of Mindfulness to Reach Lord Buddha’s Dhammakāyas and Nibbāna,” as well as all the fi nancial supporters who have made this book possible. The book will be of immeasurable benefi t to those studying the Right Practice of Lord Buddha. Finally, I call upon the Triple Gem to bless you all to prosper in Lord Buddha’s Dhamma and in your life and work. May you all live happily and healthfully and attain your noble wishes. (Phra Rajbrahmathera - Veera Ganuttamo) Vice Abbot and Head of Meditation Masters, Wat Paknam Basijareaon

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.

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."

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." --

Vipassana-Meditation as explained by the English meditation master George D.

The main topics covered are, the real goal of meditation, meditation practise and its side effects, errors on the meditational path, living in the here and now, relationships and communication, the nature and perils of perceptions and aspects of freedom. Talks given by the author as a Buddhist monk in Bangkok and Booklets written for meditators in order to give them some “Insight” into their possible experiences form the two main chapters of this book.

Vipassana Meditation Book Review:

In the autumn of 2019 I passed through the gates of Vipassana retreat center, left my stuff in the lobby's locker and went to my designated room.Ten days later, the one who left was a different person.Different in what way? How is it possible that ten days of silent retreat can permanently alter a person's perspective on life? The short version is that in those ten days I discovered how my personal hell looked like, how I built it by myself, and how absolutely and definitely painful it was. I learned that all aggressive, dismissive gestures, hurtful words I ever posed had consequences. That I don't get away with anything. Sooner or later every hurtful gesture I ever posed will invariably come back haunting me. I learned that karma is as real as it can be, but it's an internal event, not an external one.The long version constitutes the subject of this book.

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.
