Leaving the meditation | Vipassana Meditation | Dhamma

Leaving the meditation | Vipassana Meditation | Dhamma

When the course of practice is completed, before leaving for home or one's residence, the meditator should have the leaving ceremony to pay respect to his/her master as itis an opportunity for asking forgiveness from each other for what they have done unintentionally during the course of practice, which probably brings concern to the next practice.

  1. prepare a pack of joss sticks, candle, and flower for asking forgiveness (if not available, one may proceed by informing the master in sitting posture together with joined hands up);
  2. pay respect by bowing to the ground three times, then raise a pack of joss sticks, candle, and flower at chest and recite the following verse:
  3. "Acariyepamadena, devarattayena katam, sabbam aparadham, khamatame bhante"

    (on behalf of many people, change "khamatame bhante" to "khamatuno bhante") (Venerable Sir, may you forgive me for any wrong I have done in thought, word or deed, intentionally or unintentionally to your face or behind your back.) Then the master recites "Aham khamami, tayapi me khamitappam" (on behalf of many people, change "khamitappam" to "tumhehipi") Afterward, the meditator recites "khamami bhante" (on behalf of many people, change "mi" to "ma")

  4. Then make a request for the five Precepts by reciting the following:
  5. "Mayam bhante visum visum rakkhanatthaya tissaranena saha panca silani yacama"
    (O, Prosperous One, we all request for the Buddhist five Precepts simultaneously with the three Refuges, and maintain each separately.)
    Dutiyampi mayam bhante visum visum rakkhanatthaya tissaranena saha panca silani yacama
    (O, Prosperous One, we all request for the Buddhist five Precepts simultaneously with the three Refuges, and maintain each separately for the second time.)
    Tatiyampi mayam bhante visum visum rakkhanatthaya tissaranena saha panca silani yacama"
    (for one person, change "mayam" to "aham" and "yacama" to "yacami")
    (O, Prosperous One, we all request for the Buddhist five Precepts simultaneously with the three Refuges, and maintain each separately for the third time.)
  6. The master recites the following passage three times, then the meditator repeats it three times.
  7. "Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammasambuddhassa."
  8. The master recites the Three Refuges verse line-by-line, then the meditator repeats line-by-line after him :
"Buddham saranam gacchami. Dhammam saranam gacchami. Sangham saranam gacchami. Dutiyampi buddham saranam gacchami Dutiyampi dhammam saranam gacchami. Dutiyampi sangham saranam gacchami. Tatiyampi buddham saranam gacchami Tatiyampi dhammam saranam gacchami. Tatiyampi sangham saranam gacchami.
Panatipata, veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami.
(I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from taking life of any living being.)
Adinnadana, veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami.
(I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from taking what is not given.)
Kamesu micchacara, veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami.
(I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from sexual misconduct.)
Musavada, veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami.
(I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from false speech.)
Sura-meraya-majja-pamadatthana, veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami."
(I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from intoxications causing heedlessness.)

After that, the master will continue describing the merit of the Preceps in Pali (not to be repeated) as follows:

"Silena sugatin yanti, silena bhogasampada, silena nibbutin yanti, tasma silan visodhaye" (All Persons of Integrity go to Happy Places (this world or heaven) because of the Precepts, enjoy the great wealth because of the Precepts, and attain Nibbana because of the Precepts. Therefore, Persons of Integrity should maintain the purity of the Precepts.)

In case of the meditator reciting the five Precepts by himself/herself, ends the acceptance for the precepts by reciting as follows for three times:

"Imani panca sikkhapadani samadiyami"
(I request for the acceptance of these five Percepts.)

The ceremony will be ended by the mater blessing.

Finally, the meditator pays homage to the Buddha image three times and does the same to the master, then moves out.
