CODE OF DISCIPLINE FOR VIPASSANA MEDITATION

 

Code of discipline: Ten days is certainly a very short period in which to penetrate to the deepest levels of the unconscious mind and learn how to eradicate the deep-lying complexes. Continuity of practice in seclusion is the secret of success of this technique. The rules and regulations have been formulated keeping this practical aspect in view. The rules are not for the benefit of the Teacher or the Management, nor are they negative expressions of tradition, orthodoxy or blind faith in some organised religion. Rather, they are based on the practical experience of thousands of meditators over the years and are scientific and rational. Keeping the rules creates a very conducive atmosphere for meditation; breaking them pollutes it.

A student will have to stay on for the complete ten days. Besides this, the other rules should also be read and carefully considered. Only those who feel that they can honestly and scrupulously follow the discipline should apply for admission.

Those not prepared to make full-hearted efforts will only waste their time and worse still, cause a disturbance to those others who wish to work seriously. An intending student is warned that it would be both harmful and unpleasant to have to leave without finishing the course if he finds the discipline too difficult. Likewise, it would be most unfortunate, if in spite of repeated warnings he does not follow the rules and has to be asked to leave.

The precepts: All students will have to observe rigorously the following precepts: 1. Abstention from killing. 2. Abstention from stealing. 3. Abstention from all sexual activities. 4. Abstention from telling lies. 5. Abstention from all intoxicants. Old students will observe three more precepts : 1. Abstention from taking food after 12 noon. 2. Abstention from sensual amusements and bodily decorations. 3. Abstention from using high and luxurious beds.

Old students will observe the sixth precept by taking only lemon water at the 5 pm break, whereas the new students will take milk or tea and fruits. The Teacher may excuse an old student from observing this precept for health reasons.

Acceptance of the teacher and technique: For the period of the course the student must surrender himself completely to the Teacher and the technique of Vipassana which includes all the rules, regulations, code of discipline and the course timetable. Only with this attitude of surrender can one work diligently and thoroughly. The surrender should be with discrimination and understanding, not with any blind faith. Such confidence in the Teacher and technique is essential for the student's proper guidance and protection.

Rites, rituals and other techniques: For the period of the course it is absolutely essential that all rites and rituals, such as burning incense and lamps, counting beads, reciting mantras, singing and dancing, total fasting, praying etc. be totally suspended. All other meditation practices should also be suspended for ten days. This is enjoined for the reason that the student may be able to give a fair trial to the Vipassana technique in its pristine purity and he may ensure his own protection. Students are strongly warned against mixing any type of practice with Vipassana. Despite repeated warnings by the Teacher, there have been cases in the past where students have deliberately mixed Vipassana with some other ritual or practice and seriously harmed themselves. Students joining a course will be expected to work exactly as they are instructed by the Teacher without missing any step or adding anything extra. Any doubts or confusions which may arise can always be clarified by meeting the Teacher.

Yoga and physical exercise: Although physical Yoga and other exercises are compatible with Vipassana, they should also be suspended because, at present, proper secluded facilities are not available at the Academy. Students may exercise by walking in the areas set aside for this purpose.

Meeting the teacher: Problems or confusion about the meditation should be taken only to the Teacher for clarification. The time between 12 noon and 1 p.m. is set aside for these private interviews in the meditation hall. Questions may also be asked between 9:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. in the meditation hall, as well as during short rest breaks.

These question times are solely for the purpose of clarifying actual practical problems relating to the Technique. They should not be taken as an opportunity to indulge in philosophical discussions or intellectual arguments.
