The concept of Vipassana that is also known today as mindfulness has been corrupted over the course of the centuries, compared to the authentic teachings of the Buddha. The authentic Vipassana technique was taught around the 5th century BC by the historical Gautama Buddha, was maintained through the constant group recitings of Buddhist monks and, finally, was put to paper during the 1st century BC at Sri Lanka, in the Buddhist Pali Canon, which is the first complete writing of the authentic Buddhist Teachings.
Today, this knowledge is mainly held by forest monks who have studied in depth these ancient scriptures in depth in their original language and have practiced these teachings through monastic exercise and meditation.
Among the Canon’s Suttas, Satipatthana Sutta is the one that describes in greater detail the theory and practice of the technique of Vipassana insight meditation.
As a forest monk, Reverend Nyanadassana has taught the Satipatthana Sutta to many pupils in Asia, and he is currently teaching it in the Greek language in our country.
