Follow Pariyatti Pilgrims Along the Path

The picture above shows Buddhist monks walking nearby the Burmese Vihara in Bodhgaya. The seventeen pilgrims who earlier this month embarked on their journey ‘Along the Path’ not only visited this Myanmar Buddhist temple, they shared a vegetarian lunch with the sangha.
The Pariyatti pilgrimage gives vipassana meditators the opportunity to visit and meditate at eight historically important sites related to the life and the teachings of the Buddha.  
The pilgrims also sat a one-day course at the Vipassana Centre (Dhamma Bodhi) in Bodh Gaya. There they gave Dhamma service, and helped set up the centre for their upcoming 45-day course (below, right).
Keep an eye on our Facebook page to follow their journey:

NEW Audiobook by Paul Fleischman

Vipassana Meditation and the Scientific World View

(Also available in eBook)

Ebook & Audiobook
One of the important factors in S.N. Goenka’s way of teaching vipassana mediation is the emphasis on the similarities between the world views of vipassana and science. 
Dr. Paul R. Fleischman, retired psychiatric consultant and practitioner -honored by the American Psychiatric Association with the Oskar Pfister Award for being an "...outstanding contributor to the humanistic and spiritual side of psychiatric and medical issues", practiced vipassana meditation under the guidance of Goenkaji for nearly 35 years.
He was appointed by Mr. Goenka to be a vipassana teacher, with the particular assignment to communicate with professionals and academics in the West.
Dr. Fleischman created this brief but serious portrait of the scientific world-view as it unfurled in the 20th and 21st centuries in honor of his late teacher. 

“Once it is clearly presented, the scientific portrayal of reality can be easily understood to clarify such Pāli terms as 'Anicca', 'Anatta', 'Kamma' and 'Dhamma'. Science today not only clarifies some intellectual aspects of vipassana, but it also adds momentum to the psychological and moral implications of meditation practice," Fleischman said.

Weekly group sitting at Pariyatti, Onalaska
Pariyatti has started hosting a weekly group sitting on Mondays, at 6:00 pm.
Meditators who have completed at least one 10-day vipassana course as taught by S.N.Goenka are welcome to join. 
Group sittings are valuable opportunities to strengthen one’s own practice of vipassana. By sitting with fellow students who are following the same technique one can meditate more seriously and gain support that will help to keep the practice at home going.
Although there is a mini Dhamma Hall with ample floor mats, it's best to bring your own cushions. Address: 867 Larmon Road, Onalaska, WA, 98570, USA. Phone: 360-978-4998

Ubhinnamatthaṃ carati,
attano ca parassa ca;
paraṃ saṅkupitaṃ ñatvā,
yo sato upasammati.

Knowing that the other person is angry,
one who remains mindful and calm
acts for one's own best interest
and for the other's interest, too.
