The Gracious Flow of Dharma

$8.00

by S.N. Goenka

The three-day series of public talks contained in this book was given in Hyderabad, A.P., India from July 22 to 24, 1993.

The Sanskrit word Dharma (which is spelled Dhamma in the Pali language) originally meant “the law of nature” or “the truth.” In today’s India, unfortunately, the word has lost its original meaning, and is mistakenly used to refer to “sect” or “sectarianism.” Using this theme as an introduction, Goenkaji explains that Vipassana meditation teaches how to live a life of pure Dharma – a life full of peace, harmony and goodwill for others. This subject is particularly relevant in India today-and indeed the whole world-where sectarianism and communalism have divided large sections of society and caused acute suffering.

Description

by S.N. Goenka

In addition to his teaching work, S.N.Goenka has presented Vipassana to the general public through hundreds of public discourses in different countries, and in different cities in India. Goenka has given the majority of these talks in Hindi; the remainder, as in the present volume, in English. Initially, these talks were given in one session. In recent years, however, Goenkaji has developed an additional format of speaking for a series of three or five consecutive evenings, in order to treat the subject in greater depth.
