Vipassana – Introspective Insight – A Structured Study
Introspective Insight Into Anicca, Anatta, and Dukkha – Impermanence, Not-Self, and Stress and Suffering
Vipassana means insight. In the context of the Buddha’s Dhamma, vipassana is not merely a popular hybrid meditation method or a distracting grasping-after insight-into-all-impermanent-phenomena practice.
In the context of the Buddha’s Dhamma, vipassana describes introspective insight into a fabricated misunderstanding of self in relation to the world. These two components of ignorance of self in relation to the world, in relation to all impermanent phenomena, results in ongoing stress and suffering – Dukkha.
It is ignorance of self in relation to the world resulting in stress and suffering that are the three common characteristics of all human beings. It is the central theme and purpose of the Buddha’s Dhamma to develop skillful vipassana and resolution into this fabricated clinging-relationship through developing wisdom of Four Noble Truths.
This study provides the framework and guidance of these 29 suttas that develops specific profound and skillful introspective insight resolving all suffering arising from wrong views of self in relation to an impermanent world.
Immediately below are links to the introductory text and suttas included in our study. Each sutta has an audio recording of the class talk and sangha discussion.
Below the linked suttas is a playlist of all talks from our study.
