Vipassana originated from Burmese monk named Medawi in 1728. The Vipassanā movement, also referred to as the Insight Meditation Movement, stems from a number of branches of modern Theravāda Buddhism designed to attain awakening. The technique of Vipassana meditation is a practical way to achieve peace of mind and live a happy, productive life. It is learned by attending a 10-day residential course with a qualified teacher where the student is free from distractions so that the reality within can be observed. This technique helps practitioners come out of suffering.
