Principles and Method of Interview | Vipassana Meditation

  1. Report the experience according to sitting practice with contemplation of the primary object of attention, the state of rising and falling of abdomen. For instance, how many stages and how long , what is known or seen. Explain thoroughly what is experienced, not thought or imagined, during contemplation. In other words, explain what happens when the materiality and mentality are noted. When the primary object of attention is reported completely, the second or the others of attention should be reported respectively. Explain what other experiences happened during contemplation of the primary one. Which of those was contemplated and what were its consequences, what form, state, condition and common characteristic was seen. Try to report the fact and be compliant with the principles of the four foundation of mindfulness meditation--the contemplation of body, feelings, mind and phenomena.
  2. Report the experience according to walking practice thoroughly and stay focused. Start explaining about the beginning of the walking, how many steps and how long it isperformed, what was felt, known or seen, what form, state, conditions and common characteristics were observed. Then, clearly explain what else intermittently happened during contemplation such as seeing, hearing, smelling, thinking and so on. Try to report factual and compliant with the principles of the four foundation of mindfulness meditation.
  3. Report the experience according to contemplation of other activities such as eating, showering, folding, stretching, cleaning one's face, tooth brushing and so on. Explain what was observed and its consequences. For instance, while doing such activities, the meditator sometimes feels tight, loose, soft, stiff, heavy, light, and so on. Explain precisely and concisely as it happened. Remember that any query not relating to the practice should not be asked; otherwise the mind will get agitated. When the interview ends, pay respect by raising joined hands and bowing to the ground three times, then keep awareness and move out slowly.
