Vipassana Meditation Course India

Vipassana is the way of seeing things in reality as they really are. Just in reality, no more or less. Vipassana is an ancient meditation technique practiced and taught by Eastern meditation Master Gautam Buddha in India, Nepal, and Tibet (China). Vipassana is not just the learning, it's a complete execution. You cannot get results just by learning the technique. You have to be the executor. You have to be a manager and administrator of your body, mind, and apply Dhamma in your life. Gautam Buddha taught very well and with a clear vision and transparency that you should apply in your life now.

Program

Real Happiness Meditation School offers 10 days Vipassana training for beginners and intermediate level students who want to take a break from noisy and busy life. The course is pre-planned and cannot be customized if you want the best level of results. The location is Rishikesh (World Capital of Yoga) and the accommodation is 3/4 soundproof and there will be no unnecessary sound but only natural sounds such as the chirping of the beautiful birds.

The Vipassana course is divided into four segments which are Kayanupassana, Vedananupassana, Cittanupassana, and Dhammanupassana. In the first segment, for two days, you will work on the body by observing its actions and try to learn how to control them and lead them in the right direction. In the second segment, you will work on feelings, observe them, and react accordingly. In the third segment, you will work on the mind, observe it, and try to control and learn how to control it. In the fourth segment, you will work on Dhamma and try to uplift the life of human beings.

The four segments are divided into two days per day and one day will be fully off and one day will be complete silence (Mauna). The phone, laptop, tablet, or other communication-related will be separated from the meditation participant. Vipassana practice will be a life change opportunity for you and it will not only fulfill your past but also give you a better vision for your future.

Vipassana programs in India

Kayanupassana

Real Happiness will teach the Kayanupassana which is basically observing the body and its parts and learn how to give them energy in the right way. The body is your medium cause of the happenings around.

Vedananupassana

In this section, you will work on feelings, observe them, and prune the best out of them. The feelings can either make you happy or unhappy, so it is important to work on this.

Cittanupassana

In this section, you will observe the Chitta (a part of the mind) and work on it. Going beyond the Chitta and control it is the main object of Cittanupassana.

Dhammanupassana

In this section, you will simply practice Dhamma, and uplift the life quality and enhance the productivity of Good Karma. Dhamma is a total practice and self-realization.
