Under the Vippassana system of meditation each individual is required to attend a 10-days residential course at Vipassana Centres across the country which is free of cost. The programme starts with the individual signing a form agreeing to finish the course and follow the guidelines. For the first nine days everyone is required to maintain complete silence and follow a strict schedule involving meditation. During this course of the programme participants are required to abstain from alcohol stealing lying and sexual activity. Trainers sit with the participants to help them concentrate and meditate. Participants break their silence on the 10th day. The programme teaches people to control their thoughts and look into their inner selves. The result therefore is the cleansing of the mind and an inner deeper perspective of oneself.
