Vipassana Meditation: A Unique Contribution to Mental Health -- by Paul R. Fleischman (PDF)
This article is taken from the book of Dr Fleischman’s collected essays: Karma and Chaos
“The most important difference between Vipassana and psychotherapy is the place that these two activities are intended to occupy within a person’s life. Vipassana and psychotherapy undoubtedly have some overlap in that both are designed to help people live better lives; other than that, they diverge in intention and practice. Psychotherapy is intended as a temporary intervention within the context of a paid, professional relationship, to heal psychological wounds. Vipassana is a free spiritiual transmission, a way of life, and a vector beyond life itself. Thought it may also bring relief to mundane problems, Vipassana is the path to nibbana… Its time-scale is long – “lifetimes,” in the language of the East – and its goals august and embracing. Although our own use of Vipassana in this current lifetime may be much more modest and limited, it still imparts to our lives a momentum beyond our own time and self.”

The Insight Revolution - Lion's Roar -Ledi Sayadaw, by Erik Braun
"Determined to save Buddhism in Burma during colonial rule, Ledi Sayadaw popularized the teachings of the Abhidharma and introduced thousands of laypeople to the practice of insight meditation. As Erik Braun tells us, he set in motion a revolution in Buddhist practice still being felt around the globe." - "He believed Abhidhamma learning, in particular, established the proper sensibility and the basic tools for meditation. In his writings, he continually explains that the layperson who studies, even if only at a basic level, prepares herself for insight. He encouraged learning in detail the four elements (dhatus) of earth, wind, fire, and water and believed such concepts were accessible to any educated person. Ledi Sayadaw explained, “If knowledge is ripe, the insight into impermanence may easily be accomplished while listening to a discourse, or while living a householder’s ordinary life.” One could bring the deconstructive approach of Abhidhamma analysis to all experience."

Development of Insight: The Insight Knowledges
"We have looked at Satipatthana vipassana in terms of one central principle, three universal characteristics and seven purifications (or seven stages of purification). Now we will subdivide these seven stages of purification into 16 nanas, or (insight) "knowledges". "

Back to Jail in Burma -
"Today I go back to Insein Prison, where I was detained in the late 1990s and where throughout the decades of military rule in Myanmar, most political opponents were interrogated, tried and held. I was taken there directly from my home in 1998, as a 20-year-old university student, and was given a 21-year sentence on charges of distributing subversive pamphlets. I served seven years, in Insein and two other prisons, before being released in a general amnesty in 2005. Now I am heading back, as a volunteer in a 10-day Vipassana meditation course for prisoners."

May Dhamma spread! talk by Goenkaji, Dec 22, 2012 in Yangon
"I am often asked how it is that Vipassana is spreading so rapidly, attracting large numbers of people. One reason is that we don’t teach any religion. . . . Another reason is that the teaching is free. . . Another reason is that we do not seek to convert people from one religion to another. . . ."

Vipassana meditation: systematic rev... [J Altern Complement Med. 2010] - PubMed - NCBI
Vipassana meditation (VM) is one of the most ancient and diffused types of meditative practices belonging to the pole of mindfulness. Despite the growing interest toward the neurobiological and clinical correlates of many meditative practices, no review has specifically focused on current evidence on neuro-imaging and clinical evidence about VM.
A literature search was undertaken using MEDLINE,((R)) ISI web of knowledge, the Cochrane database, and references of retrieved articles. Controlled and cross-sectional studies with controls published in English up to March 2009 were included.
Seven (7) mainly poor-quality studies were identified. . . .
Current studies provided preliminary results about neurobiological and clinical changes related to VM practice. Nonetheless, few and mainly low-quality data are available especially for clinical studies and current results have to be considered with caution.

Compass: Vipassana Meditation Retreat - ABC TV
"While Insight Meditation (Vipassana) is one of Theravada Buddhism’s most important traditional spiritual techniques, it is a non-sectarian technique which can help people of any or no religion. Over a ten-day intensive course, students of Vipassana learn a simple but profound technique of self-observation which can bring significant personal transformation.
