The Uniforgettable Experience

Travelling in the north of Thailand is not only an opportunity to absorb the richness and rewards of its natural beauty but also to experience its lush cultural heritage and spiritual progression within the Thai Buddhist framework.

MCU. Buddhist University, Chiang Mai Campus, welcomes all to visit the warm program “MONK CHAT” informally talk with the monk. You would get to know about monk’s life, Thai culture and Tradition, Buddhism, etc. Besides, we provide you with the MEDITATION RETREAT WORKSHOP (Concentration Meditation and Vipassana Meditation) which is the way to make the mind peaceful, and to develop transcendent insight which penetrates into the truth of life.

The Purpose Of Vipassana Meditation

Healing, both emotionally and physically, is the purpose of vipassana. The causes of suffering that come from within must be removed for healing to happen. The mind becomes purified with acceptance of what is.

There are no judgments or opinions as focus is placed on the present moment. Happiness and contentment are achieved as moods and external experiences have no effect. This is the essence of vipassana.
