Spiritual Emotions from Insights from an Ancient Tradition

April 23, 2020

Addresses by S.N. Goenka and four others from the second "Insights from an Ancient Tradition" conference, held at the Vipassana Meditation Center (Dhamma Dhara) in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, USA, September 3 - 4, 2000. The MP3s include questions and answers at the end of each talk. The conference followed a ten-day Vipassana retreat. It was designed so that participants could explore at the intellectual level what they had experienced while meditating.

The four presenters at the conference were all Vipassana meditators who live engaged professional lives and who serve as assistants or teachers of Vipassana, appointed by Mr. Goenka. The revered Teacher of Vipassana, who was visiting America for the first time in nine years, had just completed his participation in the Millenium Peace Summit at the United Nations.

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 This documentary originally made for Dutch television includes his address to business leaders at a New York City conference, talks at the Belgian Vipassana Center, and interviews with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.

Our Best and Most Lasting Gift: The Universal Features of Meditation (University of Colorado, Boulder)

Our Best and Most Lasting Gift: The Universal Features of Meditation
a lecture by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.
delivered at the University of Colorado, Boulder

This talk was originally written in response to an invitation from multiple sponsors at Yale University. Various versions of this talk were given at Northeastern University, New York University, The University of Washington, Seattle; The University of British Columbia, Vancouver; the University of Colorado, Boulder; Harvard University, and Brown University, as well as at Dhamma Patapa Vipassana Center, Georgia.

This particular version of the talk was recorded at the University of Colorado, Boulder and is meant as an introductory talk that uses no technical language, and that contains explanations that require no previous biological knowledge. (Please understand that due to recording problems, the question-and-answer session ends abruptly.)

Another recording of this talk from the University of Washington, Seattle is geared more towards a university audience. It is a little more technical, and may perhaps be appreciated more by someone familiar with biological understanding. It looks upon meditation from a biological standpoint.
