Vipassana Meditation Retreat
Breathing can be a means to calming down and gain poise thereby stepping on the threshold of awakening. Maintaining full attention in a careful, prolonged and deep manner can give one insight into the heart of everything and bring one face to face with the concept of liberation.
In the Vipassana Retreat we will endeavor to develop full attention and strive to maintain it by being fully awake, thus enabling the practitioner to see clearly all that exists. The observation methodology that will be shared will shed light on the object of our attention and help us investigate and understand clearly all that exists. As the practitioner practices diligently and perseveres moment by moment he or she will gradually succeed in getting inside the stream of mindfulness.
Dev Dipawali is celebrated every year in Varanasi on the Kartik Purnima; with the belief that the Godly beings descend on earth on this auspicious occasion. This celestial event is considered to be an even more comprehensive victory of good over evil and harmony over chaos than the festival of lights celebrated on a new moon night all across the country. The ghats of Kashi get decorated with earthen lamps and floral rangolis to celebrate this grand and divine occasion. Maha-aarti at the Dashashwamedh Ghat is the centre piece of the celebration, and various classical and cultural programmes adorn the occasion. Know More...
