Vipassana, which means “to see things as they really are,” is one of India’s oldest meditation techniques. The tradition of equanimity is known as vipassana. Vipassana is a meditation technique that deals with the subconscious mind. It is a strategy in which one teaches one’s subconscious mind to shift its outlook on cravings and miseries. Vipassana was adopted by Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) just over 2,500 years ago. Gautama discovered that when people see their own selves, what causes misery can be washed away. Happiness, he believed, did not depend on improving the world around oneself, but on learning to see oneself clearly. Even if supernormal or extraordinary forces are awoken, Vipassana meditation has little to do with their creation. Nothing magical occurs. Purification is literally the removal of negativities, complexes, knots, and patterns that have clouded true consciousness and obstructed the flow of humanity’s highest qualities—absolute affection, sympathy, equanimity. Vipassana encourages us to merely concentrate on the breath and/or physical stimuli, and as the mind becomes calmer and more concentrated, we learn to begin analyzing our physical sensations as well as our thinking processes, providing us with a whole new view of why we think the way we do. Vipassana insight meditation, like other forms of meditation, begins with seeking a peaceful spot. The intention is to use the breath as a stabilizing force. The Buddha said that the safest location for meditation is in a forest under a tree or in some other very quiet spot. He advised the meditator to sit calmly and comfortably with his or her legs crossed. Other seating postures can be used if sitting with crossed legs is too difficult. A chair is perfectly adequate for those who suffer from back pain. In any case, sit with your back straight and at a right angle to the floor. The justification for sitting up straight is obvious. Pain will quickly follow whether the back is arched or crooked. Furthermore, the physical activity required to stay standing without assistance energizes the meditation exercise. There are many words that are commonly associated with Vipassana Meditation. Some of them are samadhi (concentration), panna (wisdom), and sila (morality), with Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha rounding out the list. These are very popular and are often used in Vipassana. These words should be familiar to anyone who practices this method. This is a ten-day course that is being held in a variety of cities and countries. Throughout the program, complete silence is needed. The course has a regular meditation routine of 7-8 hours and begins with a simple experience of watching one’s own respiration. The plans for the second and third days are close. The first three days are intended to relax your mind, and the fourth day is dedicated to teaching Vipassana, which involves concentration. The benefits of Vipassana are manifold. Vipassana increases mindfulness- the ability to pay attention to everyday life and things we normally wouldn’t. This helps in reducing anxiety, relieving stress, increasing focus and also treating substance addiction in certain cases. It should come as no surprise that the popularity of Vipassana meditation has massively increased in the West over the last few decades.
