How to Practice Vipassana Pt 3 Vol 1

Forest Monks

The third Podcast on how to apply the practice Vipassana Kammatthana Mindfulness, or better said ‘Vipassana Bhavana’. 

This podcast approaches the end of the introductory talks before getting down to the specific methods, and deals mainly with the problem of why we do not see the three marks of existence with ease, and what obscures our vision, to make it so hard to see?

To understand the concepts of practice in Vipassana, it is extremely important to study it and understood the following concepts which are also links, which you can click on the links to read about each concept, if you don’t know them already;

Tilakkhana – 3 Marks of Existence – Anicca (Impermanence)Dukkha (Unsatisfactoriness), and Anatta (Not-Self) 

Khandas (Skandhas –  The five aggregates ) – I also recommend to read the study guide on access to insight.
