The real meaning of Vipassana.

‘Vipassana’ — ‘passna’ means watch. Watching is the real thing, not breath. Watch everything. Breath is a useful thing, because it is always with you. Therefore, easy to watch. But the breath is not at the center, watching is at the center.

‘Vipassana’ — watch.

But watching is out, breath is in!
