Entrance to Dhamma Salila

Introduction to Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana means "to see things as they really are". It is a process of self-purification by self-observation. While taught by the Buddha in India 2500 years ago, it is not connected with Buddhism or any other religion and can be practised by anyone without conflict with existing religious beliefs or absence of beliefs. For those who are not familiar with Vipassana Meditation we recommend visiting the International Vipassana Website for an introduction.

Applying for a Course

Vipassana meditation is taught during ten-day  residential courses. This period has been found to be the minimum necessary for new students to understand the technique and its benefits through their own experience. To apply for a course please read the Code of Discipline and then find a convenient date in the Course Schedule, and submit an online application form by clicking on the date.

Course Finances

Courses are run solely on a donation basis. No charges are made, not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from those who have already completed courses, experienced the benefits of Vipassana and wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration; they and others who serve on the courses volunteer their time and efforts.
