Goenka group sits
« on: October 07, 2008, 09:40:52 AM »
I have just uploaded two group sits by S.N. Goenka. Each group sit has a couple of minutes chanting followed by a few minutes of instructions, then silence up until about the 55 minute mark. After this it has a few more minutes of chanting followed by a few minutes of metta. These are really only designed for people who have completed a 10 day Vipassana course in the tradition of S.N. Goenka.

The first group sit is in mp3 format: GroupSit1.mp3 (52 MB download)

The next one is in .m4a format, which I think is for iTunes/iPod: GroupSit3.m4a (15.5 MB download)

With Metta

I have now posted a third group sit online. This one starts with a few minutes of Anapanna before moving on to the Vipassana instructions: GroupSit4.m4a. This one is also in iPod/iTunes and is a 21.2 MB download.

There's not much 'singing' (chanting) on these - just a few minutes at the start and end. Most of the sit is silence with a few meditation instructions at the start and some metta at the end.

Like an old lawnmower, running out of gas! That's hilarious.  ;D
May we cultivate the serenity to accept the things we cannot change; the compassion to change the things we can; and the wisdom to know the difference.

waterlilly try right-clicking on the link and choosing "Save Link As" or "Save Target As" (depends on your browser) from the menu that appears - then you should be able to choose where to save the file to your local machine.

Welcome to the forums.

Warm regards,

Hi

I'm trying to download these group sits. It opens a new page but shows as a 404 not found error message.

Has the link to these expired?

It probably did. It would help to check in the website of Global Vipassana Foundation. 
Let's go beyond this illusion, shall we?
