Insight Meditation was first taught by the historical Gotama Buddha more than 2,500 years ago and is unique in its kind. In fact, it was through insight meditation that he himself achieved Enlightenment and became a Buddha.
The word used by the Buddha for this meditation is vipassanā, which means specialized, expanded (vi) + vision, seeing (passana). In English it is translated as “insight”, which in a way means “one’s ability to be aware of things that are not perceived in the usual ways”.
