Art of Living - All Products
This is the classic introduction to Vipassana meditation by William Hart: a full-length study of the teaching of S. N. Goenka. Useful for meditators and non-meditators alike. Vipassana or ”seeing it as it really is,” is an ancient meditation technique that brings real peace of mind. The practice is the essence of the teaching of the Buddha. As taught by S. N. Goenka, this path to self-awareness is extraordinary in its simplicity, its lack of dogma and, above all, its results. The Vipassana technique can be successfully applied by anyone.
Based on the lectures and writings of S. N. Goenka—and prepared under his direct guidance—The Art of Living shows how this technique of examining the body, and with that, the mind, can be used to solve problems, develop unused potential, and lead a peaceful, productive life. The work includes stories by Goenkaji as well as answers to students' questions that convey a vivid sense of his teaching. S. N. Goenka's Vipassana courses have attracted thousands of people of every background. For more information www.dhamma.org.
