In a profound exploration of Vipassana, Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted its significance on Sunday, describing it as the path of “self-transformation through self-observation.” While this practice originated thousands of years ago, the Prime Minister stressed its increasing relevance in today’s world, asserting its transformative power to address contemporary challenges.

During the birth centenary celebrations of Acharya S N Goenka, Prime Minister Modi, through video conferencing, lauded Vipassana’s global impact facilitated by Guruji’s efforts. He acknowledged that over 80 countries have embraced meditation due to Acharya Goenka’s endeavors, giving Vipassana a universal identity. The Prime Minister credited India’s global influence, exemplified by the overwhelming support of more than 190 countries for India’s proposal of International Yoga Day at the United Nations.

Vipassana’s Forgotten Legacy: PM Modi Calls for a Renewed Embrace

While India’s ancestors pioneered Vipassana yoga, PM Modi noted the irony of subsequent generations forgetting its profound importance. He highlighted how Vipassana, Meditation, and Dharana were erroneously viewed as matters of renunciation, overlooking their essential role. Recognizing eminent figures like Acharya Goenka for their leadership, the Prime Minister quoted Guruji, emphasizing that a healthy life is a collective responsibility.

Elaborating on the contemporary relevance, PM Modi underscored the vital role of Vipassana in addressing the stress faced by today’s youth due to work-life imbalances and lifestyle challenges. He positioned Vipassana not only as a solution for the younger generation but also as a remedy for stress among members of micro and nuclear families, particularly elderly parents. Encouraging the integration of elderly individuals into such transformative initiatives, the Prime Minister emphasized the broader societal impact of embracing Vipassana in navigating the complexities of modern life.
