~ Ranjith, Sivaraman, Vasanth
We were participated in a 10-day Vipassana course. we found it useful in various ways.
In my first 10-day Vipassana course, I develop ability of tolerance to face problems in life. But I realize that ability of tolerance is not enough, because most of time I felt “I am submissive or aggressive“ when I face a problems, which leads me to question myself about “my ability of metacognition”. So I decide to go another 10-day vipassana course with a goal in mind to improve my metacognition ability.
Three things that I got from vipassana meditation through experience (Bhavanamaya panya):
- When I push my mind out its comfort zone (ex: sitting for an hour without moving) for an hour, made me realize that, I have ability to adapt my body and mind to the situations.
- I had lot of thought about misery in the past, during mediation. After some time realize that “source of all my misery is an attachment towards my ego and my expectation”.
- Awareness of sensation, and ability to think “why and how certain thought are originated in my mind and how to control it”.
It was a great experience for me at Vipassana. There I learned to be aware of my sensations and to maintain equanimity. To be in equanimity I came to know that I should avoid craving and aversion. Because craving and aversion lead to misery in life. For this, I have to accept the joy and sorrow equally. And also I learned to get relief from my mental stress and to sharpen my concentration and focus.
There were three stages such as Anapana, Vipassana and Metta. In Anapana I was asked to observe my breath which moves in and out of my nostrils and to notice the places where the fresh air touched the inner walls of my nostrils for the first two days then on the third day I started to be aware of the sensation of my nose. Then, on the next day onwards I started to abserve the sensations in my body, from head to feet. As I kept my complete attention on my sensations throughout the body, my concentration was not distracted by anything. This made me to be away from craving and aversion.
On the nineth and the tenth day I learnt Metta, which taught me to share my love, compassion, kindness, peace, harmony and goodwill to all human and non-human beings.
The schooling for the mind to see things as they really are, the name is Vipassana. One of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation. It was rediscovered by Gotama Buddha.
it’s a 10-day course given for free from Dhamma , for Dhamma to make everyone practice and get liberated. By Dhamma’s servers to help others to practice dhamma peacefully.
This course makes people feel the sensations, realize not to react blindly and just let pass slowly, slowly Anicha Anicha. we only react to our sensations good or bad, nothing out is making a sensation in us, its our own craving and clingings
Liberation, the word itself opens up the door to internal peace .no craving, no clinging and no madness only sensations and let them pass slowly, slowly.
Mental practice to come out of all our reactions and make us aware of our reactions and madness.
The art of living a liberated and peaceful life while sharing compassionate love and peace for everyone.
