All courses are run solely on a donation basis. All expenses are met by donations from those who, having completed a course and experienced the benefits of Vipassana, wish to give others the same opportunity. Neither the Teacher nor the assistant teachers receive remuneration; they and those who serve the courses volunteer their time. Thus Vipassana is offered free from commercialisation.

Old students - Those who have completed a 10-day Vipassana Meditation course with S.N. Goenka or his Assistant Teachers.
Old students have the opportunity to provide Dhamma Service at the courses listed above. To apply for Dhamma Service, click on the 'Yes' link in the right hand 'Servers needed' column.
Or view the Old student regional site. A username and password will be required to access these pages.

Satipatthana Sutta courses have the same timetable and discipline as 10-day course. The difference is that in the taped evening discourses the Satipatthana Sutta is carefully examined. This is the principal text in which the technique of Vipassana is systematically explained. These courses are open to serious old students who have completed at least three 10-day courses, have not been practising any other meditation techniques since last 10-day course, have been practising this technique of Vipassana for at least one year, are trying to maintain the five precepts in their daily lives, and trying to maintain daily practice.

Teacher's Self-Course: Each year Mr. Goenka sits his own course in India. This has traditionally been called the Teacher's Self Course (TSC). Students who qualify are allowed to sit a self-course at the same time.

  • Must be a serious old student who is playing or likely to play an important role in the spread of Dhamma.
  • Must be practicing Vipassana exclusively (not practicing any other meditation techniques).
  • These requirements may change annually.
