Vipassana meditation is a simple, practical way to achieve real peace of mind. It leads to the eradication of the mental negativities responsible for human suffering.

The nonsectarian practice of Vipassana can bring about a major transformation in an individual’s attitude and behavior. Those who practice it remove, little by little, the root causes of their suffering and begin to lead happier, healthier, more productive lives.

Vipassana meditation has been taught to prison inmates and staff in many parts of India, as well as in the United States, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Colombia, Britain, Taiwan, New Zealand, and Nepal. In all, more than 10,000 prisoners have attended ten-day Vipassana courses in prisons around the world.
