Vipassana Long Term Student
Organized by: Andrew Rodgers
I wish to give a year of selfless service as an essential part of the path of Dhamma, an important step in the direction of liberation. The practice of Vipassana gradually eradicates mental impurities until inner peace and happiness are attained. At first, this liberation from misery may be only partial, but still it brings a deep sense of gratitude for having been given the wonderful teaching of Dhamma. With these feelings of love and compassion, the wish has naturally arisen to help others come out of their misery. Serving on courses provides an opportunity for me to express this gratitude by helping people as they learn Dhamma, without expecting anything in return. In selflessly serving others I will also serve myself by developing the ten parami and dissolving the habit of egotism.
