Vipasana is basically a Dhyan technique derived from Buddha Dharma practices. It is similar to the Neti-Neti Tratak Bhrumadhya and other Dhyan procedures in Indian Yogashastra. The
essence of Vipasana practice lies in achieving the Turiya, the fourth state of consciousness by remaining inactive witness to the transitions taking place in the surroundings.
Turiya is a state of mind beyond Jagruti, Swapna and Sushupti but at microscopic level its presence is noted in all the three states. Vipasana takes the Sadhak towards Turiya through
Layayog and Swaryog.
Vaastu-dosha in the North direction generally implies heart troubles. This direction is associated with the fourth house in a horoscope, and with Jaivik Urja in Vaastu Shastra.
In the Chinese acupuncture technique, it is assumed that the energy contours for senses define circular Chakra type path in the body.
In Vipasana concentrated power of the mind is
focused on various Bindus or points in the body and on different parts of the body in a sequential manner. Acupuncture technique aims at inducing revitalizing vibrations in biochemical
processes by applying pressure on specific points on Chakra-shaped energy contours. Similar effect is achieved in Vipasana by making use of subtle energies of mind and senses in the
process of meditation.
Taking up a role of a non-interacting witness, constantly watching the inner and outer movements of the breathing process is the backbone of Vipasana technique. The experience can best
be described in words of Sant Dyaneshwar: (its speed is simply incomparable, it has even outpaced the mind itself).
The Dyhan technique of observing the self by becoming inactive witness finds references in Nath-Pantha. (MPM sect also. The sect in fact describes the all encompassing Vipasana through
the couplets like;
Yogashastra postulates: (life force is located at the point where the mind is focused). Layayog and its spherical vibrations of sensation cleanse the entire body by attaining
the necessary concentration of mind.
