Meditation Break Yangon

Tour Highlight : To Learn deep insight and techniques for Vipassana meditation

Vipassana means "to see things as they really are". It is a process of self-purification by self-observation. While taught by the Buddha in India 2500 years ago, it is not connected with Buddhism or any other religion and can be practiced by anyone without conflict with existing religious beliefs or absence of beliefs. Buddhist meditation is the practice of the Eightfold Noble Path, as taught by the Buddha, which can be divided into three parts. These are higher training in Morality, Concentration and Wisdom.

    Drive to one of prominent Meditation Center in Yangon for the study and practice of Vipassana Meditation process while taught by the Buddha in India 2500 years ago. First meet with the venerable monk who will discuss the importance of meditation in the life of the Burmese Buddhist people. A meditation teacher, also a monk, will be there to introduce the techniques and methods that have been used for centuries. After an hour of instruction and discussion it is time to put the new knowledge to practice. Move into the meditation hall and slip away into a deep meditative state, relaxing in the quiet, peaceful setting of the meditation center. With a clear mind and deeper connection to traditional Buddhist culture, return to the hotel. 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 well being, you can accept it, if it is not for your well being, you will not accept it. Noble Silence (no unnecessary talk) provides a conducive atmosphere, and discourses given in the morning and evening by.
