It has now been almost a month since I finished my Vipassana course. I still feel the magic! So I thought that it is apt to write about my experience now – since it has not faded away.
There are a ton of blogs out on the Internet that give a fairly accurate day-by-day account of the Vipassana course. So I wont go into it. I __do__ however, want to give a quick overview of the course content.
Since my graduation – there has always been some sort of an interest in “figuring out life”. The vast abyss that life is – sometimes scares me, sometimes inspires me and sometimes makes me just plain lazy. I seek education in the hope that I might be able to make leaps in my journey of “figuring out life”.
I have gone through a lot of self-improvement, self-actualisation, self-realisation and “enlightenment” courses in my 33 years of life. The first self-improvement program I attended was when I was 15 years old! I recently finished my almost 5 year stint at Landmark, of which 1.5 years was as a Introduction Leader.
On June 14, 2011 (7:28 PM) – my wife gave birth to a baby boy in Pushya Hospital, Shimoga. Our lives have undoubtedly changed for ever. The moment of birth is magical, unexplainable, un-expressable. Words fall short when I begin to articulate my experience of the process of child birth or when I begin to articulate what my wife and I were feeling when our boy was born. Almost any achievement or progress or creativity that I have seems small in front of the miracle of birth that nature has executed for us.
