Mixed Model of Vipassana Meditation, Satipatthana


In Thailand today, various methods or models of practicing Insight Meditation have been created by Vipassana teachers. Major examples of these models are, ‘Bud-Dho’ (Breathing in-Breathing out), ‘Pong nor-Yoop nor’ (Rising-Falling), ‘Movement Awareness’ and ‘Paramatthabhavana’. Although the different masters use different techniques to help the practitioners attain Satipatthana, which is the authentication of Vipassana practice, but these practices embody the same “heart” of the practice, i.e. the contemplation of the true nature of bodily and mental phenomena as well as the Three Characteristics of Existence (Tilakkhana). This process of existence continues infinitely. This researcher has created the ‘Mixed Model of Vipassana Meditation’ and conducted an experimental research. The results indicate that the practitioners had increased their understanding and achieved higher level of Insight Meditation. The average score of the Vipassana achievement post-test is significantly higher than that of the pretest at p Value = 0.00. It is also found that the practitioners have very high satisfaction in their practice of the Mixed Model of Vipassana Meditation. This shows that the Mixed Vipassana Meditation Model can be a new choice, and a possible way to create unity for the various Vipassana Meditation options in Thailand.
