650.00 INR

Sixth century B.C. was an important era in history. This was the period when a great benefactor of mankind was born and became renowned as Gotama the Buddha. The Buddha rediscovered the path of Dhamma, the law of nature (the path to liberation), leading to the eradication of universal suffering. With great compassion, he spent forty-five years teaching Dhamma, the path out of suffering. Even today this path is helping humanity, and will continue to do so provided the teachings and practice are maintained in their pristine purity.

The purpose of this book is to give a brief introduction about Vipassana meditation, quintessence of the Buddha’s teaching. It also contains information on life of the Buddha, stories of the people who benefitted from the practice of Vipassana meditation, six historical Councils, chain of teachers after the Buddha and spread of Vipassana through pictorial presentation. This information is embedded in the beautiful high quality pictures from the gallery at the Global Vipassana Pagoda.

This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators.
