Publisher's Summary

This is the classic introduction to Vipassana meditation: a full-length study of the teaching of S. N. Goenka, prepared under his guidance and with his approval. Useful for meditators and non-meditators alike. This was the first book to appear in English that accurately describes the practice of Vipassana at length for the general reader. It includes stories by Goenkaji as well as answers to students’ questions that convey a vivid sense of his teaching.

Clear and helpful

I listened to this before, during and after a 10 day vipassana course and realised how well written it is and therefore helpful to give a framework to this precious experience.

Life Changing

This is a superb book, a life changer for me. It may be a little easier read in the written form than the audio, at least in part due my needing to stop reading and ponder several ideas here. The concept of sitting meditation and buddhist psychology and thought is by no means new to me, having studied it for decades. But this particular presentation was stimulating, not just to the mind, but to the spirit. Nothing to do with religion, just the development of relationship with the entire universe, presented in a very down-to-earth form.
Highly recommended!

great book, low quality recording.

I listened to this book before a silent mediation retreat and it helped me so much! I love the concepts. the audio recording is low quality, like a tape from the 80's has been transferred over, and the bell that indicates the end of a chapter is deafening, but other than that, it is a great book!
