About Us

All courses offered at the Vipassana Meditation Centre, Dhamma Banga, are conducted by assistant teachers of Sri.S.N.Goenka using audio and video recordings of Goenka ji’s instructions and discourses. All ten day courses begin in the evening of the arrival day and end early morning of the departure day.

There are no charges for the courses - not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. Expenses are largely met by donations from people who, having completed at least 1 course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit from the course


The technique of Vipassana meditation is a practical way to achieve peace of mind and live a happy, productive life. It is learned by attending a ten-days residential course with a qualified teacher where the student is free from distractions so that the reality within can be observed. This technique helps practitioners come out of suffering; it is non-sectarian and is suitable to all people regardless of religion, gender, race or nationality.

Before applying for a course you should read and accept the code of discipline which explains what Vipassana is and is not, and what is expected of you when attending a course, which is a serious undertaking.

"The bird of wisdom needs two wings to fly. They are Awareness & Equanimity"

-Mr SN.Goenka

"I attended my 1st Vipassana course in 2013. It was an eye-opener and gave me a fresh perspective to life. The daily discourses during the course had answers to most of my life related questions. Now after having attending few more courses I can easily conclude that Vipassana is nothing but pure science of mind & matter that helps us to come out of our defilements and lead a peaceful life"

Aditya Dugar

"Vipassana is a way of life. It not only helps us to lead a peaceful & balanced life but also makes us understand the impermanence of everything thus reducing attachment to worldly things (the real cause of suffering)"

Sangeeta Chopra
