Reviews For Pariyatti

Even though this is labeled as "Buddhism", it is actually not Buddhism or any particular faith, rather it is only about truths that are common to all positive faiths in the world. Mr. Goenka only speaks about love, compassion, treating others kindly; these concepts are the pillars of Christianity as well as the other major religions in the world. Metaphysics isn't a concern in these talks. Excellent stuff.
These dhamma (dharma) talks by S.N. Goenka are wonderfully straightforward explanations of Vipassana and the eightfold noble path as taught by Gautama the Buddha. Play these talks for friends who are interested in meditation and the teachings of the Buddha. They are not a substitute for actual practice of dhamma but they serve a valuable role as inspiration for meditators and non-meditators alike.
