Vipassana meditation involves a vision that penetrates and sees phenomena as they are, and, therefore, is as revealing as it is transformative. Thanks to this meditation we can perceive the three basic characteristics of existence, according to Buddhist teachings: impermanence, dissatisfaction and absence of identification.
Vipassana is a supraconscious or supramundane vision, which has nothing to do with ordinary vision so loaded with conditions, prejudices or distortions of vision. According to a large number of Buddhist monks, samathabhavana helps to control and regulate tendencies, but vipassana-bhavana breaks them down and eliminates them.
The practice of vipassana meditation awakens a special vision (intuitive or supraconscious vision) to learn what lies behind appearances. To carry out this development, Buddha proposed the psychophysical processes themselves, that is, an equal, areactive and attentive observation of attachment aggregates
There are four basic areas that serve as an object of observation in vipassana meditation:
Vipassana is a simple technique that allows us to tap into the ever-changing nature of life. It allows us to do it with detachment and without complications. We learn to accept all sensations, gross or subtle, pleasant, without judging, condemning, or praising, realizing that they are all temporary. […] This technique should not be used as a protective wall or an isolation barrier that imprisons us. Similarly, technique should not be used as an escape route either. Balance is very important and this technique used correctly allows you to get involved without attachment and confront without conflict. With the right balance we become silently aware of the free flow of energy, which we have come to know as impermanent.
