At Vipassana International Academy, Igatpuri:

At Vipassana International Academy, Dhammagiri, Igatpuri:
Attended 10 days Vipassana meditation course at Igatpuri. Spent 12 most exciting (though silent) days of my life. What an experience! I successfully observed “A Complete Noble Silence” (Arya Mouna- no talking, no newspapers, no TV, no cell phones, no music n so on) throughout the 10 days! Ya, I survived without my phone/book/laptop/internet/family/friends/pen n paper for 10 whole days! By the end of the course, I almost forgot what my netbook n phone looked like! They also got some well-deserved rest!
The location too was awesome. It was surrounded by a thick forest n hills and there was a giant Pagoda in the center. All the thoughts of the meditators were reflected against the hills and bounced back in pure form. Vipassana is science based and has no religious association. It is a technique to observe sensations on your body and become neutral to both happy / sad sensations.Yes, everyone should experience it at least once in a life!
