S. N Goenka changed the life of many, including ours. He was a teacher of Vipassana Meditation who helped this ancient technique to spread around the world. He was emphasizing its non-secterian and universal character. Nowadays 10-days silent meditation courses are organised in many countries on all continents. All the courses are free of charge, organised by volunteers and based on donations from old students (those who finished at least one 10-day course). They are open to all people regardless of their religion, race or financial situation.
