Vipassana meditation is mental training
In Vipassana meditation, you go on a journey to explore your body and mind and their interrelations. This gradually dissolves mental impurities and leads to a balanced mind full of love and compassion. The whole practice of Vipassana is mental training. Just as we do physical exercises to improve our physical health, Vipassana serves on the mental level to develop a healthy mind.
The natural laws that control our thinking, our feelings, our judgments and feelings become clear. Regular practice gives us direct experience. You can see how to make progress and when to fall back into old behavior patterns. Suddenly it becomes clear how to create suffering or get rid of it.
Your own life is self-determined: through increased mindfulness, seeing through illusion and deception, through greater self-control and inner Peace.
