Vipassana, the eye of the Buddha

After completing a 10 day Vipassana course, I have discovered a technique that greatly benefits my life. This technique is full of simple and useful information to get you galloping along the path to enlightenment.

Vipassana is a specific technique to awaken the psyche and bring us all out of trauma. Purifying the mind and body is the purpose and when you continue the practice you will benefit in daily life — guaranteed. It will show you how you can heal yourself from illness and disease. Wow!

Even minor aches and pains will dissolve away. I know this from my own experience, and the experience of others who have completed this course, including my friends and family.

During the 10 days I had numerous insights and visions of Buddha and his knowledge, for I felt his knowledge was also my knowledge. We are all linked! And this technique gave me access to my own inner knowledge.

We will all have different experiences; my husband had visions of a vast Golden City (maybe his inner temple).


Another friend saw doorways of painful memories to pass through (dealing with karma). And I had visions of Buddha himself.

One night I saw a huge eye open as if four dimensional, through the walls, through the trees, through life itself.

This sort of experience I would expect on some kind of a hallucinogenic drug, but this was a time of true knowledge, true life, true manifestation for me. I can compare nothing to this experience.

For anyone who is thinking of doing a course, there is one particular part of it that often makes people cringe; the fact that there is a ‘Noble Silence’ throughout the 10 days.

This means no communication with other students or the out-side world. ‘NO COMMUNICATION!?’ I thought. ‘No talking! Oh my god! How am I going to stop talking for a whole 10 days?

Then it dawned on me that this is the key, the silence to hear yourself think, the silence to quieten your thoughts and then the peace and quiet to heal oneself.

This process is taught in a number of centres in Australia and worldwide. If you have to travel very far to one, I guarantee, it would be worth it!

Payment is done by donation and not until after you have completed the 10 days of meditating!

This in itself shows me love and compassion is the way of Dharma. Dharma is the universal law or oneness. I feel it when I’m at peace and harmony with all things.

I’ve learnt that even a child can evolve through the tough processes of life and come to a liberated state through this technique. So hey, why not give it a go, you’ve got nothing to lose… but your pain and suffering. Hmmmm…
