All 10-day courses will take place at the Salgótarján site (not in Budapest!).
We'd have liked to organize a children course before the end of the year, but unfortunately the location is not available in the further. We ask all fellow meditators to participate in the search of a new place with minimum 3 separate rooms. Proposals are welcome at [email protected]
Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, i.e., an Art of Living.
In the following video S.N. Goenka explains the theory and practice of Vipassana meditation. The recording was made in August 2002, during Mr. Goenka's european visit at the Belgian Vipassana centre, Dhamma Pajjota.
The technique of Vipassana Meditation is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants learn the basics of the method, and practise sufficiently to experience its beneficial results. No previous experience of meditation is required. After reviewing the Code of Discipline for Vipassana courses and checking the course schedule, you may apply for a course.
In Hungary, courses are held two times per year at rented locations. Up to date information about the course dates and how to apply can be found on the Courses page. For information about courses in other parts of the world, please visit www.dhamma.org.
Courses are run solely on a donation basis. There are no charges for the courses, not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from those who have completed a course, experienced the benefits of Vipassana, and wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the Teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration; they and those who organise the courses volunteer their time.
