About this app

This is the official Dhamma.org android mobile App for Vipassana Meditation as taught by S.N. Goenka in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin.

Vipassana Meditation
Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, an Art of Living. Vipassana is the process of self-purification by self-observation. One begins by observing the natural breath to concentrate the mind. Then, with a sharpened awareness, one proceeds to observe the changing nature of body and mind and experiences the universal truths of impermanence, suffering and egolessness. This truth-realization by direct experience results in mental purification.

Courses
The technique of Vipassana Meditation is taught at 10-day residential courses during which participants learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results. There are no charges for the courses - not even to cover the cost of food and accommodation. All expenses are met by donations from people who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the opportunity to also benefit.

Locations
Courses are given in numerous Meditation Centers and at Non-Center course locations. Each location has its own schedule of courses. In most cases, an application for admission to these courses can be completed online using this App. There are numerous Centers currently in operation and more in development around the world, including Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania.

The earlier version of the app kept the screen on while the meditation audio was playing. That used to be quite helpful. Now the phone display goes off after a while and even the audio stops playing so I can not understand when the sitting is supposed to get over and it is an interruption to open my eyes and unlock my keypad again. One of the permissions it asks for is - "prevents phone from sleeping". This is allowed for the app on my phone but my phone still goes to sleep.

Aren't the recordings from the meditations of the 10 day course missing? I wanted to hear Goenka's instructions again at the beginning of each meditation but I couldn't find them on the self-course section. Perhaps they're on the library that contains all the recordings, but I haven't been able to find them.
