Vipassana Meditation Course: Series of Eight Talks

Venerable Sayadaw U Janaka

Burmese Meditation Master
Patron of the Buddha Dhamma Meditation Association

Talks are an essential part of any meditation course, being both instructional and inspirational. The meditation teacher will ascertain that the theoretical information needed for the meditator's practice is given at the appropriate time and that encouragement and support is offered.

Meditation students who do not have the benefit of working personally with a meditation teacher, can use this series of talks from an actual retreat as part of a study of vipassana meditation techniques and as a guide and inspiration to its practice.
