Mr. Satya Narayan Goenka (1924-2013) was the Principal Teacher of Vipassana, the practical quintessence of the Buddha's teaching. A leading industrialist in Myanmar (Burma) after the Second World War, Goenkaji, as he was affectionately known outside India, was living proof that the mental exercise of meditation is necessary for a wholesome and beneficial life. Known for his humility, deep compassion, unperturbed composure, Mr. Goenka's emphasis on the self-dependant, non-sectarian and result oriented nature of Vipassana found appeal in a world searching for a practical path out of stress and suffering.
