The tag Vipassana identifies products that are directly related to this
tradition and differentiates them from other Theravada resources
available on our site. While the main emphasis in Vipassana meditation
as taught by S.N. Goenka is on actual practice, this product may provide
inspiration and guidance to a Vipassana meditator.
We also carry titles from the Theravada tradition, as we feel that by exploring the wider world of the Theravada texts, which include the Buddha’s discourses, commentaries, and scholarly articles and treatises, meditators have an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Dhamma and thereby enrich their meditation practice. This kind of intellectual exploration also helps a meditator to gain an understanding of the evolution and historical context of their meditation tradition. This understanding in turn deepens their practice and understanding of the Dhamma.x
Product Type: DVD
This DVD has the audio recording and the text of both the English translations and the Pali and Hindi chanting by S.N. Goenka from a ten-day Vipassana meditation course, which play simultaneously on the screen.
The DVD contains a menu to easily find specific chantings, which include the opening formalities from the first evening, each day's morning chanting, and all other chantings from throughout the course. The Pali or Hindi text appears with the English translation on the screen in sync with the audio of Goenka's chanting.
The only difference between the Economy version and the Slimline version is the packaging of the DVD. The disc itself is identical.
