S.N. Goenka and Vipassana

March 26, 2020

S.N. Goenka (1924-2013), the renowned teacher of Vipassana meditation, undertook an extensive teaching tour of North America and Europe in 2002. This documentary originally made for Dutch television includes his address to business leaders at a New York City conference, talks at the Belgian Vipassana Center, and interviews with practitioners who described the benefits of Vipassana.

Every year more than 100,000 people attend Mr. Goenka’s 10-day courses in Vipassana. This ancient technique continues as a modern tool for transformation. Taught around the world as a non-sectarian practice, people from all walks of life–executives, government officials, clergy, students, homemakers, inmates—learn and benefit from Vipassana.

Sayagyi U Ba Khin: a talk by Patrick Given-Wilson

July 02, 2018

In this video, Patrick Given-Wilson explores the life of Sayagyi U Ba Khin the foremost lay teacher of vipassana meditation in Burma and S.N. Goenka's teacher. He achieved extraordinary results with his students in short periods of time, and combined this with a stellar career as a senior civil servant in Burma, at times holding six to seven different senior government positions. He had a strong conviction that "the time-clock of Vipassana has now struck" for the worldwide revival of the Buddha's path to liberation, and directed his considerable energy towards its fulfillment.

Saya Thetgyi: a talk by Patrick Given-Wilson

April 13, 2018

"When Saya Thet was born and growing up few would have dreamt that this small boy from a poor, rural village—who had little education and knew a little Pali—would become the first householder teacher in this tradition since the time of the Buddha."

In this video, Patrick Given-Wilson explores the life of Saya Thetgyi who became a critical link between the monk Ven. Ledi Sayadaw and Sayagyi U Ba Khin in helping to establish a tradition of vipassana householder teachers.

Ven. Ledi Sayadaw: a talk by Patrick Given-Wilson

February 17, 2018

"Ven. Ledi Sayadaw was the first vipassana teacher that we know of in this tradition in modern times with such detail. His great innovation was to start spreading the actual practice widely and to householders."

In this video, Patrick Given-Wilson explores the life of this meditation master and magnificent pariyatti scholar who authored over a hundred expositions on the Dhamma. He was perhaps the most outstanding Buddhist figure of his age. All who have come in contact with the path of Dhamma in recent years owe a great debt of gratitude to this scholarly, saintly monk who was instrumental in reviving the traditional practice of vipassana, making it more available for renunciates and lay people alike.

Ven. Webu Sayadaw: a talk by Patrick Given-Wilson

May 02, 2016

Webu Sayadaw was important for two reasons. One was that in his time he became one of the most venerated monks in Burma; he was known as an arahant, a fully-liberated person. And the second reason is that he encouraged Sayagyi U Ba Khin, Goenkaji's teacher, to start teaching meditation without delay. For a householder to be encouraged by a monk of such standing, gave Sayagyi enormous status, prestige and backing in his work throughout his life.

In this video, Patrick Given-Wilson explores this important relationship between Ven. Webu Sayadaw and Sayagyi U Ba Khin taking us through the significant life events of this inspiring monk who was known for giving all importance to diligent practice over scholastic achievement.
