Sayagyi U Ba Khin: a talk by Patrick Given-Wilson

More
In this video, Patrick Given-Wilson explores the life of Sayagyi U Ba Khin the foremost lay teacher of vipassana meditation in Burma and S.N. Goenka's teacher. He achieved extraordinary results with his students in short periods of time, and combined this with a stellar career as a senior civil servant in Burma, at times holding six to seven different senior government positions.

“After finishing high school I was not sure what to study next. Philosophy was one of the possibilities, it seemed interesting, but I knew I did not really want to learn other people’s theories and thoughts, but rather how to live a good life myself. Wisdom was what I was looking for . . . .” In this final Realizing Change Dhamma podcast, Come and See!, meditators share stories confirming that the search for truth is a very personal journey. An ancient technique of meditation, Vipassana...

"One Truth - Vipassana, Science and Spirituality" from Realizing Change

3/2/2016
More
For the harmonious development of individuals and society, proper integration of science and Dhamma is essential, yet they are often perceived as irreconcilable. Dhamma for many people today has become identified with sectarian religions, ritual, community conflicts and a stubborn resistance to any logical scrutiny of beliefs. Science meanwhile is usually associated with thoroughgoing materialism—the view that matter is the only reality. In this month’s Dhamma podcast, One Truth -...

"Managing Oneself - Vipassana, Work & Social Action" from Realizing Change

Political, social and economic problems have always existed but with today’s almost instant communications, we can see just how widespread these are: the frightened refugees vowing revenge, another tainted food scare, the latest corruption scandal. Why even now, we may ask, do these same patterns keep recurring? Why have world organizations like the U.N. and individual governments not been able to deal effectively with problems such as communal tension, poverty, unemployment and abuse of...

“His physical condition worsened, the atmosphere at home grew increasingly tense and he seriously considered closing down his dental clinic. As a last resort, on the recommendation of a neighbor, he joined a ten-day Vipassana retreat, never thinking he’d be able to complete it. With faith and sheer willpower he learned to meditate and noticed an unmistakable lessening in the pain which had become his constant companion.” A combination of physical, mental and social factors makes up the...

“Grown ups think that children don’t have problems, but we do . . . missing my mum, worrying about school work,feeling lonely, getting angry with my little sister. Why do I get so upset? Can’t I stop being bad tempered? …” Children come to learn meditation with many of the same aims and hopes as adults. Some hope “to become nicer to be around.” Others wish to be able to deal with stressful situations or to become more self-confident. In this month's Dhamma podcast listen to the inspiring...

"Speaking for myself, we all need a way to face suffering. Suffering includes everything from the knowledge of our own mortality and ultimate aloneness, to the more immediate miseries of each person’s life….When an inmate finishes a Vipassana course, he or she has had a glimpse of freedom, perhaps for the first time. Hope and confidence arise from the knowledge that the source and the end of all misery lies within." In this month's podcast, Chapter 7 " Freedom Behind Bars - Vipassana in...

“For as long as I can remember I believed that every person had the right, and the ability, to achieve peace and happiness. When it did not happen for me automatically, as all my childhood (and adult) fairytales had promised, I was lost. No one had given me any practical way of overcoming the pain and suffering that I was experiencing. Would meditation help? A few tentative enquiries led me to Vipassana meditation as taught by Mr S.N. Goenka of India….” In this month's podcast, Chapter 6...

“I have practiced Vipassana meditation every day for three months now. The rewards are great. The change in my life is enormous. I used to drink alcohol every day to survive the stress, now I can live without it. I was having a lot of trouble with my son, but since I learned not to react, not to get too angry, the relationship has taken a positive turnaround...” This audio podcast is Chapter 5 of a twelve-part series from the audiobook Realizing Change by Ian Hetherington.

"The Course Experience - During" from Realizing Change

7/21/2015
More
People sometimes feel that meditation is an introverted and rather selfish activity. “What about the ills of the world while you are contemplating your navel!” Vipassana is a self centered technique in the sense that only by working correctly on ourselves can we really be in a position to help others. But the whole thrust of the meditation is towards dissolving the false ego we have created and which now controls us. Little by little, as we transcend selfish egotism, we naturally want to...

"I hung the brochure with the course schedule on the wall of my room, and often looked at it in disbelief. Counting the meditation periods, I kept thinking, is that really ten hours? Are they nuts? Am I nuts? What am I doing here? Why am I doing this to myself? Something had drawn me to the place, certainly, but as the ten-day course geared up to begin, I still could not pinpoint what it was."

"What Is Vipassana Meditation?" from Realizing Change

5/21/2015
More
Meditation means different things to different people. In the West the word commonly carries a very loose meaning connected with “thinking things through,” “pondering,” “reflecting.” It can also have associations with prayer or religious contemplation, relaxation and altered states of consciousness. Interest in “meditation” has been growing steadily since the 1960s but the breadth of definition can be confusing. It covers such a range of activities which use the same term in very different...
