Vipassana Meditation is about dissolving the I – and opening up the powers of the inner eye. It is about going inwards. Vipassana is most effective when it is done in a Vipassana Meditation Centre. India has quite a handful of Vipassana meditation centres spread across the states of India.
This effective meditation was unearthed by Gautam Buddha more than two thousand five hundred years ago. Vipassana requires a lot of effort and patience on the practitioner's part – and is divided into different stages. The entire practice is based on the five precepts; requiring major and minor adjustments on the practitioner’s part in order to reach that state of concentration, heightened awareness and enlightenment. Here’s where Vipassana retreats play an integral role. They ensure that a discipline is followed all times; and the practitioner abides by each do and don’ts of this gem of a practice to reap its countless benefits. This ancient meditation practice has found acceptance among many famous people such as Priyanka Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal, current Indian President Ram Nath Kovind, Jack Dorsey and more. Another interesting feature of this practice is that it can be practiced irrespective of one’s faith, race and ethnicity.
