Vipassana, the development of insight, embodies the essence of the teaching of the Buddha. As taught by S. N. Goenka, this path to self-awareness is extraordinary in its simplicity. Due to its lack of dogma and results oriented technique, Vipassana can be successfully applied by anyone in every situation.
Based on the lectures and writings of S. N. Goenka – and prepared under his direct guidance – ‘The Art of Living’ provides introduction to Vipassana, how this technique can be used to solve problems, develop unused potential, and lead a peaceful, productive life. It includes stories by S. N. Goenka, as well as answers to students’ questions, that convey a vivid sense of his teaching.
It is a full-length study of the teaching of Vipassana useful for both for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators.
