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

This book brings together voices from around the world, giving in-depth accounts of their apprehensions before undertaking a ten-day course in Vipassana, their experiences during the course, and the subtle yet profound experience of change activated by the practice of Vipassana. People from every walk of life, every country and culture, every age have found Vipassana a steady anchor in the gale-force winds of change that buffet us. By facing reality head-on through direct observation, rather than reacting, impermanence itself becomes the very medium of transformation.
