Vipassana Meditation Centre (Chinese: 净名佛学社), is a Buddhist monastery in Singapore set up in 1993 in propagating and perpetuating the practice of vipassana meditation in Singapore. This group is not related to non-sectarian society "Vipassana International Center (Singapore)", which offers 10 Day residential meditation courses, taught by SN Goenka, in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin.[1]

Overview[edit]

Vipassana Meditation Centre was founded in 1993 as a non-profit organization with the objective of providing opportunities and a venue for all Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike in cultivating their dhamma practice.[2]

Notable advisors and teachers affiliated with the meditation centre include Ovadacariya Sayadaw U Panditabhivamsa.[3] There are several meditation locations across the world (Examples: Singapore, Australia, China, South Korea) [4]
