Inward Excerpt :

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 Excerpt :

Are you looking to cultivate true unconditional love towards the creation and experience utter bliss? Do you wish to foster resilience, non-judgment, and detachment? Will you like to master the ancient mindfulness technique that leaded Gautama Buddha to Enlightenment/Nirvana? Do you want to promote relaxation, mindfulness, gratitude, and a better sense of inner peace? Do you want to witness the joy of living in the present moment? If so, Vipassana Meditation is what you need... Vipassana, which means "seeing things as they really are," is an Indian and Buddhist meditation practice. It was taught over 2500 years ago as a generic cure for universal maladies, i.e., an Art of Living. It is a simple knowledge of what is happening as it is happening. It is distinct from other forms of meditation practices. The bulk of meditations, whether on a mantra, flame, or activity such as Trataka, are focused on concentration. The practitioner directs his mental energy on an item or a concept. Such methods have validity in terms of relaxing the mind, relaxation, a feeling of well-being, stress reduction, and so on. Vipassana, in contrast to the other practices, focuses on awareness rather than concentration. Vipassana refers to perceiving reality as it is rather than changing reality, as in concentration practices. The key attribute of Vipassana is its secular nature, which allows it to be practiced by people of any religion, race, caste, nationality, or gender. If the method is to be universal, it must be used by everyone. Here, you concentrate on your breathing, and as you gain control of your breathing observation, you move on to your body responses. The more the method is used, the more freedom from suffering there is, and the closer one gets to the ultimate objective of complete liberation. Even 10 days may provide effects that are apparent and clearly helpful in daily life. This step-by-step Vipassana guide takes the reader through practices that may open new levels of awarene

To cooperate with the Chiefs of the Sangha Regions and Directors of the Provincial Meditation Centers to raise academic training techniques to the same high standard. 5. To support the Sangha in stabilizing, protecting and developing Buddhism under the rules of the Discipline, the Law and the Sangha Rules. The committee members agreed to publish A Study Guide for Samatha-Vipassanā Meditation based on the Five Meditation Techniques, as a book.

Beyond the Breath Excerpt :

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.

Vipassana Meditation for Beginners the Most Effective Meditation Technique Excerpt :

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

Vipassana Meditation and the Scientific Worldview 2nd Edition Excerpt :

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.
