Introduction Vipasana   Leave a comment


Vipassana is one of India’s most ancient meditation techniques. Long lost to humanity, it was rediscovered by Gotama the Buddha more than 2500 years ago. The word Vipassana means seeing things as they really are. It is the process of self- purification by self-observation. One begins by observing the natural breath to concentrate the mind. With a sharpened awareness one proceeds to observe the changing nature of body and mind and experiences the universal truths of impermanence, suffering and egolessness. This truth-realization by direct experience is the process of purification. The entire path (Dhamma) is a universal remedy for universal problems and has nothing to do with any organized religion or sectarianism. For this reason, it can be freely practiced by everyone, at any time, in any place, without conflict due to race, community or religion, and will prove equally beneficial to one and all.

What Vipassana is not:

  • It is not a rite or ritual based on blind faith.
  • It is neither an intellectual nor a philosophical entertainment.
  • It is not a rest cure, a holiday, or an opportunity for socializing.
  • It is not an escape from the trials and tribulations of everyday life.

What Vipassana is:

  • It is a technique that will eradicate suffering.
  • It is a method of mental purification which allows one to face life’s tensions and problems in a calm, balanced way.
  • It is an art of living that one can use to make positive contributions to society.

Vipassana meditation aims at the highest spiritual goals of total liberation and full enlightenment. Its purpose is never simply to cure physical disease. However, as a by-product of mental purification, many psychosomatic diseases are eradicated. In fact, Vipassana eliminates the three causes of all unhappiness: craving, aversion and ignorance. With continued practice, the meditation releases the tensions developed in everyday life, opening the knots tied by the old habit of reacting in an unbalanced way to pleasant and unpleasant situations.

Although Vipassana was developed as a technique by the Buddha, its practice is not limited to Buddhists. There is absolutely no question of conversion. The technique works on the simple basis that all human beings share the same problems and a technique which can eradicate these problems will have a universal application. People from many religious denominations have experienced the benefits of Vipassana meditation, and have found no conflict with their profession of faith.


Meditation and Self-discipline

The process of self-purification by introspection is certainly never easy–students have to work very hard at it. By their own efforts students arrive at their own realizations; no one else can do this for them. Therefore, the meditation will suit only those willing to work seriously and observe the discipline, which is there for the benefit and protection of the meditators and is an integral part of the meditation practice.

Ten days is certainly a very short time in which to penetrate the deepest levels of the unconscious mind and learn how to eradicate the complexes lying there. Continuity of the practice in seclusion is the secret of this technique’s success. Rules and regulations have been developed keeping this practical aspect in mind. They are not primarily for the benefit of the teacher or the course management, nor are they negative expressions of tradition, orthodoxy or blind faith in some organized religion. Rather, they are based on the practical experience of thousands of meditators over the years and are both scientific and rational. Abiding by the rules creates a very conducive atmosphere for meditation; breaking them pollutes it.

A student will have to stay for the entire period of the course. The other rules should also be carefully read and considered. Only those who feel that they can honestly and scrupulously follow the discipline should apply for admission. Those not prepared to make a determined effort will waste their time and, moreover, will disturb others who wish to work seriously. A prospective student should also understand that it would be both disadvantageous and inadvisable to leave without finishing the course upon finding the discipline too difficult. Likewise, it would be most unfortunate if, in spite of repeated reminders, a student does not follow the rules and has to be asked to leave.


Persons With Serious Mental Disorders

People with serious mental disorders have occasionally come to Vipassana courses with the unrealistic expectation that the technique will cure or alleviate their mental problems. Unstable interpersonal relationships and a history of various treatments can be additional factors which make it difficult for such people to benefit from, or even complete, a ten-day course. Our capacity as a nonprofessional volunteer organization makes it impossible for us to properly care for people with these backgrounds. Although Vipassana meditation is beneficial for most people, it is not a substitute for medical or psychiatric treatment and we do not recommend it for people with serious psychiatric disorders.


The Code of Discipline

The foundation of the practice is sīla — moral conduct. Sīla provides a basis for the development of samādhi — concentration of mind; and purification of the mind is achieved through paññā — the wisdom of insight.

The Precepts

All who attend a Vipassana course must conscientiously undertake the following five precepts for the duration of the course:

  1. to abstain from killing any being;
  2. to abstain from stealing;
  3. to abstain from all sexual activity;
  4. to abstain from telling lies;
  5. to abstain from all intoxicants.

There are three additional precepts which old students (that is, those who have completed a course with S.N. Goenka or one of his assistant teachers) are expected to follow during the course:

  1. to abstain from eating after midday;
  2. to abstain from sensual entertainment and bodily decorations;
  3. to abstain from using high or luxurious beds.

Old students will observe the sixth precept by having tea without milk or fruit juice at the 5 p.m. break, whereas new student may have tea with milk and some fruit. The teacher may excuse an old student from observing this precept for health reasons. The seventh and eighth precept will be observed by all.

Acceptance of the Teacher and the Technique

Students must declare themselves willing to comply fully and for the duration of the course with the teacher’s guidance and instructions; that is, to observe the discipline and to meditate exactly as the teacher asks, without ignoring any part of the instructions, nor adding anything to them. This acceptance should be one of discrimination and understanding, not blind submission. Only with an attitude of trust can a student work diligently and thoroughly. Such confidence in the teacher and the technique is essential for success in meditation.

Other Techniques, Rites, and Forms of Worship

During the course it is absolutely essential that all forms of prayer, worship, or religious ceremony — fasting, burning incense, counting beads, reciting mantras, singing and dancing, etc. — be discontinued. All other meditation techniques and healing or spiritual practices should also be suspended. This is not to condemn any other technique or practice, but to give a fair trial to the technique of Vipassana in its purity.

Students are strongly advised that deliberately mixing other techniques of meditation with Vipassana will impede and even reverse their progress. Despite repeated warnings by the teacher, there have been cases in the past where students have intentionally mixed this technique with a ritual or another practice, and have done themselves a great disservice. Any doubts or confusion which may arise should always be clarified by meeting with the teacher.

Interviews With the Teacher

The teacher is available to meet students privately between 12 Noon and 1:00 p.m. Questions may also be asked in public between 9:00 and 9:30 p.m. in the meditation hall. The interview and question times are for clarifying the technique and for questions arising from the evening discourses.

Noble Silence

All students must observe Noble Silence from the beginning of the course until the morning of the last full day. Noble Silence means silence of body, speech, and mind. Any form of communication with fellow student, whether by gestures, sign language, written notes, etc., is prohibited.

Students may, however, speak with the teacher whenever necessary and they may approach the management with any problems related to food, accommodation, health, etc. But even these contacts should be kept to a minimum. Students should cultivate the feeling that they are working in isolation.

Separation of Men and Women

Complete segregation of men and women is to be maintained. Couples, married or otherwise, should not contact each other in any way during the course. The same applies to friends, members of the same family, etc.

Physical Contact

It is important that throughout the course there be no physical contact whatsoever between persons of the same or opposite sex.

Yoga and Physical Exercise

Although physical yoga and other exercises are compatible with Vipassana, they should be suspended during the course because proper secluded facilities are not available at the course site. Jogging is also not permitted. Students may exercise during rest periods by walking in the designated areas.

Religious Objects, Rosaries, Crystals, Talismans, etc.

No such items should be brought to the course site. If brought inadvertently they should be deposited with the management for the duration of the course.

Intoxicants and Drugs

No drugs, alcohol, or other intoxicants should be brought to the site; this also applies to tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and all other sedatives. Those taking medicines or drugs on a doctor’s prescription should notify the teacher.

Tobacco

For the health and comfort of all students, smoking, chewing tobacco, and taking snuff are not permitted at the course.

Food

It is not possible to satisfy the special food preferences and requirements of all the meditators. Students are therefore kindly requested to make do with the simple vegetarian meals provided. The course management endeavors to prepare a balanced, wholesome menu suitable for meditation. If any students have been prescribed a special diet because of ill-health, they should inform the management at the time of application. Fasting is not permitted.

Clothing

Dress should be simple, modest, and comfortable. Tight, transparent, revealing, or otherwise striking clothing (such as shorts, short skirts, tights and leggings, sleeveless or skimpy tops) should not be worn. Sunbathing and partial nudity are not permitted. This is important in order to minimize distraction to others.

Laundry and Bathing

No washing machines or dryers are available, so students should bring sufficient clothing. Small items can be hand-washed. Bathing and laundry may be done only in the break periods and not during meditation hours.

Outside Contacts

Students must remain within the course boundaries throughout the course. They may leave only with the specific consent of the teacher. No outside communications is allowed before the course ends. This includes letters, phone calls and visitors. Cell phones, pagers, and other electronic devices must be deposited with the management until the course ends. In case of an emergency, a friend or relative may contact the management.

Music, Reading and Writing

The playing of musical instruments, radios, etc. is not permitted. No reading or writing materials should be brought to the course. Students should not distract themselves by taking notes. The restriction on reading and writing is to emphasize the strictly practical nature of this meditation.

Recording Devices and Cameras

These may not be used except with the express permission of the teacher.


Course Finances

According to the tradition of pure Vipassana, courses are run solely on a donation basis. Donations are accepted only from those who have completed at least one ten-day course with S.N. Goenka or one of his assisting teachers. Someone taking the course for the first time may give a donation on the last day of the course or any time thereafter.

In this way courses are supported by those who have realized for themselves the benefits of the practice. Wishing to share these benefits with others, one gives a donation according to one’s means and volition. Such donations are the only source of funding for course in this tradition around the world. There is no wealthy foundation or individual sponsoring them. Neither the teachers nor the organizers receive any kind of payment for their service. Thus, the spread of Vipassana is carried out with purity of purpose, free from any commercialism.

Whether a donation is large or small, it should be given with the wish to help others: ‘The course I have taken has been paid for through the generosity of past students; now let me give something towards the cost of a future course, so that others may also benefit by this technique.’


Summary

To clarify the spirit behind the discipline and rules, they may be summarized as follows:

Take great care that your actions do not disturb anyone. Take no notice of distractions caused by others.

It may be that a student cannot understand the practical reasons for one or several of the above rules. Rather than allow negativity and doubt to develop, immediate clarification should be sought from the teacher.

It is only by taking a disciplined approach and by making maximum effort that a student can fully grasp the practice and benefit from it. The emphasis during the course is on work. A golden rule is to meditate as if one were alone, with one’s mind turned inward, ignoring any inconveniences and distractions that one may encounter.

Finally, students should note that their progress in Vipassana depends solely on their own good qualities and personal development and on five factors: earnest efforts, confidence, sincerity, health and wisdom.

May the above information help you to obtain maximum benefit from your meditation course. We are happy to have the opportunity to serve, and wish you peace and harmony from your experience of Vipassana.

Mahayana Origination   2 comments


The Mahayana Buddhism, a sect, must have come initially, the origination or who has true faith based on the Mahanama Sutta and the ‘Faith is kept First’. This is my hypothesis. I personally don’t believe in ‘..ism’ thing as Buddha’s words are universal means applies to everyone, everything, and no need to sect it. No one should necessarily claim that you are Buddhist. But do not limit yourself in such any sects which was later devised from their little, incapable thoughts. Buddha’s all words are beyond the capacity of those who disected buddha and developed a piece and made personalized sects. It is universal, not personalized. Keep doing vipasana meditation.

“Mahanama Sutta: Being a Lay Buddhist” (AN 8.25), translated from the Pali by Kumara Bhikkhu. Access to Insight (BCBS Edition), 30 November 2013.
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/an/an08/an08.025.kuma.html .

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

Once the Blessed One was dwelling among the Sakyas in Nigrodha Park at Kapilavatthu. There, Mahanama the Sakyan approached the Blessed One. Having approached and paid respect to the Blessed One, he sat aside. Then, seated aside, Mahanama the Sakyan said thus to the Blessed One:

“Venerable sir, in what way is one a lay follower?”[1]

“Mahanama, inasmuch as one has gone to the Buddha for refuge, has gone to the Dhamma for refuge, has gone to the Sangha for refuge; in that way, Mahanama, one is a lay follower.”

“Then, venerable sir, in what way is a lay follower virtuous?”

“Mahanama, inasmuch as a lay follower abstains from destroying living beings; abstains from taking what is not given; abstains from sexual misconduct; abstains from lying; and abstains from wine, liquor and intoxicants that are causes for heedlessness; in that way, Mahanama, a lay follower is virtuous.”

“Then, venerable sir, in what way is a lay follower engaged in his own welfare, but not in others’ welfare?”

“Mahanama, inasmuch as a lay follower is possessed of faith himself, but rouses not others to possess faith; is possessed of virtue himself, but rouses not others to possess virtue; is possessed of liberality himself, but rouses not others to possess liberality; is himself desirous of meeting with monks, but rouses not others to meet with monks; is himself desirous of hearing the true Dhamma, but rouses not others to hear the true Dhamma; is himself habitually mindful of the Dhamma that is heard, but rouses not others to be mindful of the Dhamma; has himself ascertained the meaning/benefit of the Dhamma that is heard, but rouses not others to ascertain the meaning/benefit; having known the meaning/benefit, having known the Dhamma, is himself committed to the practice according to the Dhamma, but rouses not others to be committed to the practice according to the Dhamma; in that way, Mahanama, a lay follower is engaged in his own welfare, but not in others’ welfare.”

“Then, venerable sir, in what way is a lay follower engaged in his own welfare and in others’ welfare?”

“Mahanama, inasmuch as a lay follower is possessed of faith himself, and rouses others to possess faith; is possessed of virtue himself, and rouses others to possess virtue; is possessed of liberality himself, and rouses others to possess liberality; is himself desirous of meeting with monks, and rouses others to meet with monks; is himself desirous of hearing the true Dhamma, and rouses others to hear the true Dhamma; is himself habitually mindful of the Dhamma that is heard, and rouses others to be mindful of the Dhamma; is himself ascertained of the meaning/benefit of the Dhamma that is heard, and rouses others to ascertain the meaning/benefit; having known the meaning/benefit, having known the Dhamma, is himself committed to the practice according to the Dhamma, and rouses others to be committed to the practice according to the Dhamma; in that way, Mahanama, a lay follower is engaged in his own welfare and in others’ welfare.”

Galactic – Brain Highway   Leave a comment


Researchers discover we are part of a ‘Galactic Highway’

What is that Bigger Picture?
What is my conclusion and correlation?

laniakea-part-of-a-supermassive-galactic-highway

Astronomers have discovered out that our Milky Way Galaxy is part of a MASSIVE intergalactic highway that is part of a humongous SUPERSTRUCTURE interconnected by over 800 galaxies located at 1000 million light years away.

What is Universe/ Multiverse / Parallelverse?

Researchers have just recently discovered that the Milky Way Galaxy –our very ‘little’ place in the universe— is part of a massive SUPERSTRUCTURE interconnected by over 800 galaxies located at 1000 million light years away.

Well, Let’s Compare with Brain’s Neutral Structure and Function.

Image result for neuron diagram synaptic terminalImage result for neuron diagram synaptic terminal
Synaptic Clef is very much comparable,associated with this Galactic HIghway.   Thorough Synaptic Cleft Information passes to other, but what information is passing through (?) highway through neurotransmitter (chemical component).

My Conclusions:

  1.  It is not a surprise to me first thing.
  2.  Our galaxy is a part like our brain’s synaptic cleft, where information flows from one neuron to another i.e intergalactic highway.
  3.  What information is passing through our galactic highway? This is a serious research that we can intercept information, passing unnoticed right in front/through of us so far to understand the larger sphere of our universe itself. We need a supercomputer to intercept data/info, decode it at the widest spectrum. Please, give me Noble Peace prize because i’d like to buy a good motorcycle.
  4.  May be our universe is a Brain (Universe) or a small part of much larger Brain of species (Multiverse) or there lies layers.
  5. If u think at an Augmented World vertically then, layers pile which is infinite, just imperceptible. Looks like science is opening up. Eg. Microorganisms may possibly not realize the existence of human being as a host, or the ecosystem, or other spheres of earth or the large earth itself and beyond. May be our scientific development will one day figure it out.
  6. Metaphysical mind is essential to understand something like this.
  7. Our world is a matrix world,
  8. Buddha figured it out through vipassana meditation, and understood whole universe.

Buddha   2 comments



May be this world is a prison, that’s why we always strive for enlightenment. Especially, when you r in a deep shit, u always desire to overcome suffering at least, right?

In any so called religions, i never like the “ism”, especially in the Buddhism- only the word Buddha is Perfect, that is inherent in all life forms, no matter what their origin, sex, color, or follow any sect. It is rather a Law of nature simply. Like, when anger arises, it creates a negative atmosphere in surrounding, and with happiness, it creates a peaceful ambience, and this ubiquitous law of nature pertains and pervades in all life. I’m not a blind faith, and believe only that transforms me into a better person at both logical and experiential level. A better person means to achieve the pinnacle of success or my virtues without harming others at least even living as earthly person because i need good fortune as well. To propagate a positive vibe is also to dispel the fundamental darkness, so i’m writing particularly this issue.

New York – Vipassana Acharya S. N. Goenka addressed the delegates to the Millennium World Peace Summit as they gathered in the United Nations General Assembly Hall today – first ever gathering of religious and spiritual leaders in the UN. Mr. Goenka’s speech, in the session entitled Conflict Transformation, focussed on the themes of religious harmony, tolerance and peaceful coexistence. Mr. Goenka said, “Rather than converting people from one organized religion to another organized religion,we should try to convert people from misery to happiness, from bondage to liberation and from cruelty to compassion.”

In practicing Buddhism, i like both Vipassana Meditation as well as the Nichiren Daishonin (the Lotus Sutra). It is very truly expounded here that the 5 sense organs+mind are the primal sources  of the purification and pollution of an individual. Our sense organs- eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body receives/send information (evil or good emotional feelings) to/from brain and surrounding. It ultimately manifests a person of good and bad nature or transforming one’s virtues. This is the law of nature that every living are confined in.

The heart of the Buddha’s lifetime of teachings is the Lotus Sutra, which manifests in our behaviour and character, the most valuable treasurer as a human being. What matters most is one’s heart. The wonderful qualities and character as a person will even inspire and move the hearts of people who are not practicing this faith. It is rather a human thing than imaginative. So, Lesson is unless we change our behavior to good by experiencing a true state of peace and tranquility amidst continual struggle against evil.

Mr. Toda, Soka Gakkai says to youth that, “sometimes you’ll encounter situations where things don’t go as you would like. when that happens, voice constructive opinions. speak out confidently and articulate your views. Respect people of character and integrity, and stand up bravely to the high-handed and arrogant. That’s what youth need to do. some people become increasingly self-centered as they get older. often leaders grow lax and corrupt when they rise to high positions and there is no one around to guide or correct them. The leaders in our organization for kosen-rufu need to be exceptionally self-disciplined.”

Vipassana Meditation   1 comment


In mundane Life, various extravagant maze things coerce us to approach indifferently; acknowledge ourselves precariously with falter notion of dogmatic hegemony subjects. No time to recapitulate subject meticulously unless persuaded or self-imposed by alacrity. Pensive mind circumvents vehemently searching the pristine source that emancipates us from mundane suffering once and for all. Does it or someone exist? Is there a God above Sky come to rescue in times of trouble?

There’s no God in the Sky waiting, when one gets in trouble for rescue. An individual one has to do work hard for self-salvation. It is the “Vipassana” Meditation, which means “insight”, seeing things as they really are without mathematics. It is the essence of the teaching of Gottama Buddha and he himself attained supreme enlightenment that experience by the practice of this meditation, and therefore is what he primarily taught. Practicing Vipassana, he penetrated the veils of ignorance, delusion, and illusion. He discovered the law of dependent origination, the chain of cause and effect conditioning the universe. Whatever arises, it arises due to a cause; when the cause is eradicated there can be no resulting effect. Therefore, by totally eliminating the cause of suffering one can attain real happiness, real liberation from all misery. With this realization, he penetrated the illusion of solidity in mind and matter, dissolved the tendency of his mind to cling and crave, and realized the unconditioned truth. The darkness of ignorance was dispelled and the light of wisdom shone forth in all its brilliance. The subtlest defilements of his mind were washed away. All the shackles were broken. No craving remained for the future; his mind became free from all attachments. Siddhattha Gotama attained supreme enlightenment, experiencing the ultimate truth in all its purity. With the experience of total liberation the following words of joy came forth:

“Through countless births, I wandered in samsara (Mundane world), seeking, but not finding, the builder of the house. I have been taking birth in misery again and again. O builder of the house you are now seen! You cannot build the house again. All the rafters and the central pole are shattered. The mind is free from all the sankhara (defilements). The craving-free stage is achieved.”

After his enlightenment, the Buddha spent several weeks enjoying nibbanic (Nirvana) peace. With an infinite compassionate volition, the magnanimous Buddha decided to teach the profound Dhamma and many received ordination and realized the truth of the impermanent, substanceless, and unsatisfactory nature of reality at the experiential level.

Whole world is living misery life, no god comes to us. There’s no heaven in the sky. It is here and right now to push ourselves. In fact, it is simple in philosophy. It simply avers to remain in equanimity because craving and aversion misleads us to attachment and abhorrence respectively, which is the origination of unhappiness. Can you remember your personal experience pertaining to the past, present craving, aversion thoughts and deeds? Have you ever become remorseful for your unwholesome deeds, thoughts to others? How many times did u forgive others realizing it also happened to me or may happen in future? What originates in you is it without a cause? Let us suppose, an absent of that cause for a moment, then, this supposed cause would not have impaired your equanimity or tranquil state of mind? And universal truth is that lots of causes reproach us without portending. Pragmatic knowledge, experience and wisdom are better actions than theoretical. What’s the solution then?

Practice Vipassana technique running in many countries, diverse people from every caste, community, and background are benefited. Its goal is to purify the mind, to eliminate the tensions and negativities that make us miserable. Vipassana meditation as taught by Sir Satya Narayan Goenka and his assistant teacher, a few words from Sir S.N. Goenka,

I do not wish to convert people
from one organized religion to
another; I have no interest in any of
these organized religions. My
interest is in the truth, the teachings
of all Enlightened Ones. But
conversion is involved: from misery
to happiness, from defilement to
purity, from bondage to liberation,
from ignorance to enlightenment. -S.N. Goenka

Vipassana Meditation is taught in courses of ten days, open to anyone who sincerely wishes to learn the technique and who is fit to do so physically and mentally. During the ten days, participants remain within the area of the course site, having no contact with the outside world. They refrain from reading and writing, and suspend any religious or other practices, working exactly according to the instructions given. For the entire period of the course they follow a basic code of morality which includes celibacy and abstention from all intoxicants. They also maintain noble silence for the first nine days of the course, although they are free to discuss meditation problems with the teacher and material problems with the management. The “noble silence” means silence not only in speech but even abstaining from gesticulation austerely. The important thing is to experience it as it is well said in the movie “matrix” about what matrix is? It says “unfortunately, no one can be told what matrix is, you have to see it for yourself.”

Above all, it is a teaching to be practiced. Simply having faith in the Buddha or his teaching will not help to free us from suffering; neither will a merely intellectual understanding of the path. Both of these are of value only if they inspire us to put the teachings into practice. Only the actual practice of what the Buddha taught will give concrete results and change our lives for the better. The Buddha said,
“Someone may recite much of the texts, but if he does not practice them, such a heedless person is like a herdsman who only counts the cows of others; he does not enjoy the rewards of the life of a truth-seeker.
Another may be able to recite only a few words from the texts, but if he lives the life of Dhamma, taking steps on the path from its beginning to the goal, then he enjoys the rewards of the life of a truth-seeker.”

It is what I do. Once again, “There’s no God in the Sky waiting, when one gets in trouble for rescue.” I have not attained enlightenment, but on the way. And, The Buddha gave his last admonition to all just before few seconds of his life in 544 B.C as follows.
“Decay is inherent in all compounded things,
Work out your own salvation with diligence.”
