Vipassana means "to see things as they really are". It is a process of self-purification by self-observation. It is an ancient technique from India, which was originally taught by Gautama, the Buddha.
The teaching is universal and not connected with any religious organisation and can be practised by anyone without conflict with existing religious beliefs or absence of beliefs.
