Special Webcast Announcement: Following on from the International Buddhist Academy’s Venerable Khenpo Kunsang Choephel teaching on ‘Shamatha Meditation’, we are pleased to announce a webcast of a teaching on ‘Vipashyana Meditation’ (penetrative insight meditation) at Kathmandu, Nepal, on Saturday, August 8th, 2020. The teaching will be given in English.
Registration for the webcast of this event is now open to Gompa member-supporters at www.gompaservices.com. Registration and viewing will be available until September 7th, 2020. At the time you register there will also be the opportunity to make a voluntary offering in support of the International Buddhist Academy, in Kathmandu.
Vipashyana meditation, or penetrative insight meditation, is one of the two main aspects of the practice of meditation on the Buddhist path, the other being Shamatha (calm abiding) meditation. While the practice of Shamatha brings the stabilisation of attention on an internal object of observation, it does not in and of itself overcome misunderstanding as to the nature of reality. Accomplishment in Vipashyana (penetrative insight) meditation brings a true, analytical insight into the more profound aspects of the chosen object, such as its lack of inherent existence and its ultimate nature. Combined with Shamatha, Vipashyana is a key foundation for progression on the meditative path toward enlightenment.
The Venerable Khenpo Kunsang Choephel, a senior teacher at the International Buddhist Academy, is becoming widely appreciated for the clarity and approachability of his introductory teachings on key topics.
The teaching will be recorded live and will be available to view by the end of the day Nepal time on August 8th. The webcast will then remain available for you to view at any time of your choosing until September 7th, 2020.
