Learning deep insight and techniques for Vipassana meditation Morality:

Morality is the common denominator of all religions. At the centers, students observe the five precepts of refraining from killing, stealing, sexual misconduct, lying and the use of drugs or intoxicants. By diligently observing this morality, one develops purity of physical and verbal actions; Concentration: Beginning with this base, training in concentration is taught (Anapana meditation -- mindfulness of breathing). Through learning to calm and control the mind during the first five days, the student quickly appreciates the advantages of a steady and balanced mind; Wisdom: The third training in wisdom or insight is introduced through Vipassana meditation, which is practiced throughout the remainder of the period. Vipassana is a process which enables the student to develop concentration and awareness and, through personal experience, to gain an understanding of the natural characteristics of impermanence, suffering and non-self. Practiced with diligence the gradual process of mental purification will lead to the end of suffering and to full Enlightenment or Nibbana. The teaching is through experience. If what you experience is for your wellbeing, you can accept it, if it is not for your wellbeing, you will not accept it. Noble Silence (no unnecessary talk) provides a conducive atmosphere, and discourses given in the morning and evening by.
