IN THE TRADITION OF SAYAGYI U BA KHIN AND MOTHER SAYAMAGYI

International Meditation Centre Japan

Vipassana Meditation

"The world is now facing serious problems threatening mankind. It is just the right time for everyone to take to Vipassana meditation and learn how to find a deep pool of quiet in the midst of all that is happening today.”
- Sayagyi U Ba Khin


What is Buddhist Meditation?
Buddhist meditation consists of two steps: calmness of mind and insight (Vipassana). The student is helped to develop calmness and concentration by encouraging him to focus his attention on a spot at the base of the nose. In this way he can be aware of the in-breath and the out-breath. When the mind is given only one object it gradually becomes calm and steady.

Respiration mindfulness has several advantages:

The breath is natural and common to all human beings
The breath is available at all times to focus the attention on
Mindfulness of the breath is a technique that can be practised by members of any religion, or a person of no religion
There is no reason why a good student in meditation should not be able to secure a concentrated mind in a few days of training. Little by little all conscious awareness of breathing stops. The student becomes mindful only of a small point of light and warmth. At this stage the mind becomes one pointed and clear and unwavering.


It is a common belief that a person whose power of concentration is good can achieve better results. There are definitely many advantages that accrue to a person who undergoes a successful meditation retreat. It doesn't matter whether this person is a religious person, a business person, a politician, a worker or a student.
