A life story of Meditation Teacher S.N.Goenka

Born in a religious Hindu business family, Mr. S. N. Goenka’s mind was ingrained with high spiritual ideals from an early age. On the other hand his achievement of worldly success at a very young age made him very egoistic. A mental conflict resulted, leading to great stress and tension within him. It also led to him learning Vipassana meditation, which changed the course of his life.


Was the Buddha a pessimist?

For centuries in India, the Buddha and his teachings have been accused as being pessimistic. These misunderstandings developed when the Buddha’s teachings were lost in India and most of the world. This was largely due to disappearance of the applied teachings (the technique of Vipassana meditation) in the initial years and loss of words of the Buddha (Pali Canon) in the later years.
