learn to Meditate: Vipassana Bhavana

'Vipassana bhavana' is realization of the three signs.

Three characteristics, impermanence, suffering and non-self, can be grasped intellectually, as scientific and philosophical truth, but this is not in itself sufficient to rid the mind of egoism and craving.

The final objective lies on a higher level of awareness, the direct "intuitional" plane, where it is actually experienced as psychological fact.

Until this personal confirmation is obtained, the sphere of sense perception ('ayatana') and sensory-responses remain stronger than the intellectual conviction; the two function side by side on different levels of consciousness, but it is usually the sphere dominated by 'avijja' which continues to determine the course of life by volitional action.

For the more advanced exercises of 'samatha' and 'vipassana', however, the strictest observance of 'sila', the basic moral rules, becomes necessary.

These techniques are best followed in seclusion, away from the impurities of worldly life and under the guidance of an accomplished master.

Learn to meditate and dive deep into the inner spring of positive thinking and joyful feelings.

 

Let peaceful thoughts flow into your mind like streams flows into the ocean


Be as bright as the sun and as calm as the moon, your light will reduce the dark clouds of stress
