Where are our books published and where do they come from?

All our books are published, printed and shipped from the Vipassana Research Institute, India. We do our very best to ensure our books are well packaged and cared for during transport, but sometimes small marks can occur when shipping to the UK. Please also be aware that sometimes the quality of printing from India can be slightly lower than books printed here in the West and ask for your understanding in this regard. We do everything we can to ensure our books are of good sellable condition. That said, if you feel dissatisfied with your purchase then please let us know and we will do our best to rectify your order.

What type of meditation are your books about?

All of our resources provide information on Vipassana meditation as taught by S.N Goenka in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin and are suitable for current Vipassana meditators or people seeking to learn more about this meditation technique.

Do you accept returns and provide refunds?
