The Code of Discipline

The foundation of the practice is sīla — moral conduct. Sīla provides a basis for the development of samādhi — concentration of mind; and purification of the mind is achieved through paññā the wisdom of insight.

The Precepts

All who attend a Vipassana course must conscientiously undertake the following five precepts for the duration of the course:

  1. to abstain from killing any being;
  2. to abstain from stealing;
  3. to abstain from all sexual activity;
  4. to abstain from telling lies;
  5. to abstain from all intoxicants.

Vipassana is taught step by step during 10 days. Interrupting the process before completion may be harmful.  Students cannot leave the Vipassana center without consent of the teacher.

  • Observe discipline and meditate exactly as the teacher instructs. Trust in the teacher and the technique is essential for success.
  • Prayer, worship- fasting, burning incense, counting beads (mala), reciting mantras, singing etc. be discontinued during the course. Any other meditation and healing or spiritual practices should also be suspended. Religious Objects, Rosaries, Crystals, Talismans, etc. should not be brought to the center. If brought inadvertently they should be deposited with the management.
  • All students must observe Noble Silence until the last day. Students may, however, speak with the teacher and volunteers (dhamma servers).
  • No outside communication is allowed during the course. Cell phones, and other electronic devices must be deposited with the management. In case of an emergency, a friend or relative may contact the management.
  • No reading or writing materials should be brought to the course.
  • Complete segregation of men and women is maintained.
  • No drugs, alcohol or other intoxicants may be brought to the center; also tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and other sedatives. Those taking medicines or drugs on a doctor’s prescription should notify it to the teacher.
