In a 10-day course, the meditators undertake the delicate and demanding task of examining their own minds in a surrounding which intermingles long stretches of meditation with periods of instructions from Mr. Goenka. Students of this course are familiar with Goenkaji’s practice of chanting, both the Buddha’s words and his own inspiring compositions, rhymed Hindi couplets known as ‘dohas’ before and after every group sittings. This chanting provides a congenial, supportive atmosphere for meditation.
This booklet contains collection of Hindi couplets (dohas) chanted by Mr. S. N. Goenka, translated in English language. It will help Vipassana practitioners to understand their meaning and be able to apply them much more deeply in the context of their meditation practice.
This book is ideal for practitioners of Vipassana meditation.
