There are two levels of keeping Sila (Moral Precepts) – one is real, and the other is forced, and imaginary (Not Manifest). Ajarn Spencer has prepared a Casual 12 Minute Talk in Podcast to cover this topic, and hopefully reveal the difference between enforced rule keeping, and Manifest Virtue. There is a big difference between Self Restraint (Enforced Rule Keeping), and Truly Manifest Virtue (Absence of Instincts wich need to be Restrained). Sila practice has therefore the first level of Restraint, and the Second level, which is Manifest Virtue, with no Defilement present in need of restraint. One of the most Important aspects of Sila practice, is to become aware of the fact that the heart is full of Non-Virtuous Intentions and Instincts, because it is only possible to get rid of a problem, if one becomes aware of the existence of the problem. Mindfulness practice, is all about consciously noticing what is happening within and without.
I undertake the training rule to abstain from liquors, wines, and other intoxicants, which are the basis for heedlessness. If we are practicing Abstention, then this Implies that the desire to do the thing we are restraining ourself from, still exists. So, if we have attained purity by anihillating the Non-Virtuous Instincts and desire to Lie, Kill, Steal, Speak Ill of Others, Perversions, Intoxication etc, then we are no longer abstaining. Until we develop the true need and will and desire to anihillate the false view of a self that is separate and the center of the universe, we will not stand a chance of Enlightenment.

Thai Buddhist Arts Online Project – Thai Buddhist Art is one of the most wide ranging Cultural Forms of Artistic Expression, and one of the Worlds Richest Sources of Buddhist Fine Arts. Spread out over an area of 2.5 hectares, the Jodhpur Vipassana Centre is situated at the foot of an outcrop of Aravalli range of hills, interspersed with sand dunes and sandy hummocks partially covered by natural vegetation of mostly thorny bushes.

10-day courses are an introductory course to Vipassana Meditation where the technique is taught step-by-step each day. Temperatures are extreme throughout the period from March to October, except when monsoonal rain produces thick clouds to lower it slightly. True Sila, has no need to exercise restraint, because no defilement is present to restrain. We are just Impure Unenlightened Beings, full of Defilement, but who are restraining themselves, by behaving. With Sila practice, one should notice consciously how much pure and impure elements of mind are present when putting oneself through self restraint, and concluding how far away one is in one’s practice, from truly manifest Sila, and how much remains mere self restraint.
Being Awakened, is also about being Consciously Aware of within and without in the present moment. We only need t abstain if we have the desire and intentions to perform actions which are not Auspicious. It should make you aware of the fact that the only reason you are not making Inauspicious karma, is that you are exercising self restraint. One has to develop the wish and the need and the will power to renounce Non-Virtuous Thoughts and Intentions.
Delhi, Jammu, Kolkata, Kalka, Haridwar, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Thiruvanathpuram, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Puri and Gauwhati etc. It is a popular tourist destination, featuring many palaces, forts and temples, set in the stark landscape of the Thar desert. It is also referred to as the Blue City due to the indigo tinge of the whitewashed houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. During these periods of heavy rain, however, the generally low humidity rises and this adds to the normal discomfort from the heat.

Becoming Aware with Mindfulness is an important prerequisite to develping the qualities of mind necessary to be able to remove Non-Virtuous Instincts to Act (Purify the Heart of Defilement). Vipassana Practice is designed to Awaken the Mind, and pull it out of the Dream-Thinking State. One should become aware that one is Impure, and that should spur the disappointment with oneself, and the realisation that selfishness, is not something to nurture and cherish, rather, one’s own enemy, and must be removed and aihillated.
Jodhpur lies near the geographic centre of Rajasthan state, which makes it a convenient base for travel in a region much frequented by tourists. A Cow is Vegetarian from birth, and so has no Virtue in not eating Meat, for their is no Merit of Effort in Abstention. As limited seats are available at the Centre, prior registration is a must for interested participants.
It is necessary to see and recognise the presence of defilement, in order to be able to remove it.
At present there is no regular transport facility available at Chopasani village for reaching the Centre. Transport from Chopasani Village (to reach the Centre) however can be made available, if informed earlier.
