Q: Can Vipassana make people mentally unbalanced?

SNG- No. Vipassana teaches you to be aware and equanimous, that is, balanced, despite all the ups and downs of life. But if someone comes to a course concealing serious emotional problems, that person may be unable to understand the technique or to apply it properly to achieve the desired results. This is why...

Q: How about depression? Does Vipassan acure that?

SNG- Again, the purpose of Vipassana is not to cure diseases. Someone who really practices Vipassanalearns to be happy and balanced in all circumstances. But a person with a history of severe depression may not be able to apply the technique properly and may not get the desired results. The best thing for such a person is to work with a...

Q: Can Vipassana cure physical or mental diseases?

SNG- Many diseases are caused by our inner agitation. If the agitation is removed, the disease may be alleviated or disappear. But learning Vipassana with the aim of curing a disease is a mistake that never works. People who try to do this waste their time because they are focusing on the wrong goal. They may even harm themselves. They will...

Q: Is there anyone who should not participate in a course?

SNG- Obviously someone who is physically too weak to follow the schedule will not be able to benefit from a course. The same is true of someone suffering from psychiatric problems, or someone undergoing emotional upheaval. Through a process of questions and answers, we will be able to help you decide...

Q: Why is a course conducted in silence?

SNG- All students attending the course observe "noble silence" — that is, silence of body, speech and mind. They agree to refrain from communicating with their co-meditators. However, students are free to contact the management about their material needs, and to speak with the instructor. Silence is observed for the...

Q: How about the tenth day, when talking is allowed and serious meditation stops? Can I leave then?

SNG- The tenth day is a very important transition back to ordinary life. No one is permitted to leave on that day.

Q: Is it dangerous to leave a course early?

SNG- The point is that leaving early is shortchanging yourself. You don't give yourself a chance to learn the full technique and so you won't be able to apply it successfully in daily life. You also interrupt the process in the middle rather than letting it come to the proper conclusion. To get home a day or...

Q: Why do I have to stay for the entire ten days?

SNG- Vipassana is taught step by step, with a new step added each day to the end of the course. If you leave early, you do not learn the full teaching and do not give the technique a chance to work for you. Also, by meditating intensively, a course participant initiates a process that reaches...
