v_retreat6.pdfThe Vipassana Retreat3132 viewsVen. Pannyavaro

Vipassana meditation requires long-term commitment. While it can be done to some extent in everyday life, realistically for the practice to deepen it needs to be done intensively in a supportive retreat situation. Vipassana meditation is developmental, so to realise its ultimate benefit it has to be sustained with appropriate intensity under supportive conditions. Ven. Pannyavaro, a practitioner of over 30 years, guides you through the vipassana experience in a retreat situation, in a systematic and practical way.

5_Hindrances_02ed_28Buddhanet29.pdfMahaSatipatthana Sutta:Establishment of Mindfulness on 5 Hindrances3026 viewsIn this book, Bro James explained how to establish mindfulness on these 5 Hindrances and why it is important to do so. Written as if spoken in simple Malaysian English, he continued to draw upon his personal experience to explain and supplement the exposition of the Discourse. Connecting the dots between Text and life, he illustrates it with modern day scenarios enabling us to see how the practice is applied – in both formal practice and daily life today.

TowardsAnInnerPeace-VF11p.pdfTowards an Inner Peace2824 viewsIn Towards an Inner Peace, Venerable Dhammajiva instructs yogis to progress by developing continuous mindfulness and deep concentration. He takes yogis through a journey, which progressively leads to the development of vipassana insights. His step by step instructions provide an invaluable theroretical basis to confront and embrace the challenges along the path to attain a state of path and fruition consciousness.

volcanos.pdfFor the Stilling of Volcanoes2621 viewsInsight Meditation as explained by Ven. Sujiva: It is not an task easy to approach such a profound topic as Insight Meditation in simple terms. But we have got to start somewhere. After some years of introducing this type of meditation, I still find that there is a lack of introductory material for those without knowledge of Buddhism. What is available is often extremely technical and loaded with ancient Indian terminology. There are some words in the English vocabulary which we can never hope to substitute perfectly. Even in this booklet I have used some English words such as 'conditioned' and 'suffering' which need special explanation when used in a Buddhist sense - but I have tried to come up with something easier to read and understand.

02Orientation_to_the_Practice.pdfOrientation to the Practice2520 viewsWhether this is a first time experience of Vipassana meditation or you are a meditator who has experience in this mode of practice, every meditator at the beginning of a retreat will need to make some adjustment to the retreat situation - at least in having to settle down and get into the rhythm of the practice. First, let us look how one relates to a retreat situation and the way to adjust to the retreat environment, before the basic instructions are given.

05Guidelines_for_the_Practice.pdfGuidelines for the Practice2317 viewsNow that you have been give the basic instructions and are doing the exercises to develop the practice, it is necessary to have an overview and a framework of
the practice to guide you. In order to do this, we need to go back to the source material of the Buddha’s set of instructions on Vipassana meditation: The Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
08Taking_the_Practice_Home.pdf
08Taking_the_Practice_Home.pdfTaking the Practice Home2093 viewsIf meditation is to have any relevance to everyday life it has to be done at home. This does not mean just your residence but wherever your attention happens to reside. To meditate at home requires a 'hands-on', dynamic approach that is not restricted to any particular time, place or posture. When applied in this way, it becomes integrated into the ordinary activities of life and becomes the basis for a meditative lifestyle in the home and the routine of everyday life.
Beginners2ed_28Buddhanet29.pdf
Beginners2ed_28Buddhanet29.pdfMahaSatipatthana Sutta: Great Discourse on Four-Fold Establishment of Mindfulness2079 viewsThis book explains Satipatthana or mindfulness practice by going directly and referring to this Discourse, which the Buddha originally expounded to the people of Kurus. So here we return to the basic orthodox Discourse spoken by the Buddha as a guide. In this way you gain a complete understanding of what the Buddha really taught. You can also gauge whether you are on the right track or if there is any missing part in your practice that you might need to include.
06Questions-and-Responses_.pdf
06Questions-and-Responses_.pdfQuestions and Responses1914 viewsThere are three areas of difficulties that most meditators experience when first doing the practice: incessant thinking, disinclination or inability to handle pain, and sleepiness. In addition to the explanation to the difficulties facing meditators, here are some commonly asked questions – often on practical issues - by new students, and my responses to them. I hope they can help to clarify and elaborate on the practice as a standardised set of instructions is usually given to beginners, which needs then to be explained further to the individual meditator as they practice.

07Support_of_Loving-kindness.pdfSupport of Loving-kindness Meditation1825 viewsAfter the meditator is established in the basics of Vipassana meditation, Loving-kindness meditation can be used to support the more challenging Vipassana practice. While this is switching meditation modes to a concentration-based practice, its benefit is that it uplifts and sweetens the mind and helps meditators to cope with negative emotions that they may not yet be able to deal with in their Vipassana practice.
