Everyone talks about Dhamma/Dharma but no one understands it.
Practicing purity of mind--this is true Dhamma/Dharma – S. N. Goenka
2500 years ago, the word ‘Dharma/Dhamma’ meant truth. Every saint of India taught the universal Dhamma. However, today, the word ‘Dharma’ has become equivalent to the sect, causing rift in the society.
All the saints of India inspired people to get established in Dhamma. The great saint Mahavir defined Dharma/Dhamma as ‘अहिंसा संजमो तवो’ (non-violence, self-control and austerity). In the flow of time, the word ‘Ahimsa’, lost its true meaning.
In this discourse, Mr. S. N. Goenka has expounded the word ‘ahimsa’ in its true essence. He has also explained the significance of Vipassana in the teachings/literature of various saints of India.
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators.
