Vipassanagruppen is a nonprofit organisation for people interested in Insight meditation and Buddhism. We arrange regular sittings, seminars and retreats in Stockholm, Sweden.
Vipassana means insight. It is a meditation method taught by the Buddha around 500 BC. The purpose is to develop mindfulness here and now which leads to compassion, wisdom, equanimity and enlightenment.
Sangha is the congregation of people who practise the teachings of the Buddha in their daily life.Traditionally it means the ordained Sangha. But in a wider context it it encompasses the whole Fourfold Assembly: Monks, nuns, male and female lay people.
Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha are called ”The Three Jewels” in Buddhism.
May all beings be happy and peaceful!
