Department of Vipassanā Studies
Mere knowledge in Buddha’s teachings without spiritual advance, does not bring about supreme fruits of happiness, it is in reference to this ideology the department of vipassanā was established since the beginning of the University. To attain the ultimate liberation through developing wisdom one needs to understand the path of meditation thoroughly. Qualified teachers, working under this department, put their effort to make students know the correct path in accord with the PāÄi texts and commentaries. Meditation sessions conducted weekly, under this Department, give practical experience of meditation for students. At the Postgraduate level, students can specialise Vipassanā as their major subject together with lessons concerning Samatha.
