Description
About the Book

Finding real, meaningful happiness in life is not easy. From an early age, S. N. Goenka’s mind was filled with high spiritual ideals. On the other hand his achievement of worldly success at a very young age filled his mind with tremendous ego. A mental conflict resulted, leading to great stress and mental tension. It also led to him learning Vipassana meditation, which changed the course of his life. For 14 years he studied meditation in Burma with his teacher, Sayagyi U Ba Khin. When he went to India to teach Vipassana to his mother, he took with him the belief of his teacher, that the ‘Time Clock of Vipassana had struck.’ Vipassana would once again revive in the land of its origin, and from there spread round the world.

Preface

The aim of this book is to give a short outline of the life story of meditation teacher S. N. Goenka. During his long life Goenkaji was always keen to promote the Dhamma (Universal Truth) and not himself. However, his life story is an inspiring testament to Dhamma itself, and for this reason I asked permission from him to write this book in the year before his death. I am grateful permission was given. I have drawn heavily on Goenkaji’s own writing, published in Vipassana Newsletters through the decades, where elements of autobiographical descriptions selected and adapted, and then I have linked it chronologically with additional written material to fill any gaps. Any errors will certainly be mine. Originally intended for teenagers I hope the book will also inspire the general reader with an appreciation of how a life can be transformed by practising Anapana and vipassana meditation.

As Goenkaji’s teacher, Sayagyi U Ba Khin said, "Just as the light of a candle has the power to dispel darkness in a room, so also the light developed in one man can help dispel darkness in several others." Goenkaji’s life work has been to spread Vipassana, an art of living, heeling hundreds of thousands of people to find real peace and happiness. It is a story that illustrates what profound things can be accomplished in one life-time.

May more and more people get the chance to find this technique and ………..Be Happy!

Introduction

There is an old prediction that comes from an ancient land, the land of Burma. It is about the teachings of the Buddha (enlightened One) who lived and taught in India many centuries ago. It was believed that 2,500 years after passing away, his teaching would rise again in Burma and from there be taken back to India, from where it would spread round the world. This is the story of S. N. Goenka (full name Satya Narayan Goenka, known as Goenkaji to his students) and how it fell to him to play a major part in making this happen.
