Bodhi Leaf Welcome to Dhamma Kota

Dhamma Kota (also known as Rajkot Vipassana Meditation Centre) is run by Saurashtra Vipassana Research Centre. Dhamma Kota means the Kota of dhamma in Pali Language. It is one of the numerous worldwide Centres dedicated to the teaching of Vipassana Meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin.

 

Bodhi Leaf What is Vipassana?

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living.

Vipassana is the process of self-purification by self-observation. One begins to concentrate the mind by observing the natural breath . Then, with a sharpened awareness, one proceeds to observe the changing nature of body and mind and experiences the universal truths of impermanence, suffering and egolessness. This truth-realization by direct experience results in mental purification.

The technique is a universal remedy for universal problems and has nothing to do with any organized religion or sectarianism. It can be freely practiced by anyone without conflict due to race, community or religion, and will prove equally beneficial to one and all. You can find out more about the technique by visiting What is Vipassana?.

The following Video Discourse in English and Hindi by S. N. Goenka (19 minutes) provides a short explanation of the technique of Vipassana meditation:

Excerpted from a Reuters interview of Mr. Goenka during his visit to Belgium in 2002.
