Vipassana Meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka

This GROUP is NOT an official Facebook representation of Vipassana Meditation (http://dhamma.org/) .

It was formed by old students for anyone interested in Vipassana Meditation as taught by Sri S.N. Goenka and his Assistant Teachers in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin, but participation in the discussions are restricted only to those who have successfully completed at least one 10-Day course with Goenkaji or one of his assistant teachers.

We have utmost respect for all forms of meditation practice, teachers, spiritual leaders and gurus. However we are committed to take every precaution to maintain the pristine purity of the technique as taught by Sri S.N. Goenka and his Assistant Teachers in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin. Therefore, we ask all members to comply with the following code of conduct while participating in the group:

1. Refrain from wrong speech, including but not limited to using harsh words, engaging in idle chatter, meaningless talks, spreading misinformation or negativity.
2. Refrain from posting irrelevant information.
3. Refrain from discussion of meditation technique other than Vipassana meditation in the tradition of Sri S. N. Goenka.
4. Refrain from discussion of meditation techniques and/or personal experiences which should be referred to authorized teachers.
5. Members please take caution when sharing Buddha's teachings. Please refrain from posting images and/or materials of idolatry. [1]
6: "Please mention source of reference when you post".

Note of Caution: Practising Vipassana without first completing a 10-day course is a risky matter.
Admins reserve the right to delete/remove any posts or comments without prior notice.

Members who fail to comply with the code of conduct may be banned permanently from participating in the group.

With metta,
Admins
