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.

Great app. Just find one issue that when I choose a language (non English) under Library tab and switch to other tab, and switch back to Library tab, the language will be reset to English. The downloaded contents will only be shown when correct language is selected so it's kinda annoying. Can we please let the app memorize the language I setup? Thanks!

Hi there, great appreciation for the app development team, I use the app every day and keep finding more great material to support my practice. One feature I hope might be considered is a delay for morning chanting, ending at a specified time or after a specified delay. The morning chants are wonderful, using them often in the morning, and as I usually sit for an hour I'll start the chant after 30 mins or so. Our center player allows an end time to be set, the track plays automatically. Metta

This was a great app until the 3 April 2022 update!!! Now it doesn't work smoothly anymore. The session timer used to remain visible throughout the session, but now it fades out to blank screen. The session stops working once you change phone to to airplane mode (which is essential for preventing any intrusive calls or messages while meditating)... the earlier version allowed this. Please restore these features or simply bring back the earlier version which did everything fine!
