Pāli Workshops

The aim of these workshops is to provide greater access to the words of the Buddha, which will enable a deeper understanding of the Buddha's teaching, the Dhamma. Goenkaji has emphasized that Pāli workshops such as these are very beneficial: they help meditators develop inspiration and understanding of the theoretical aspect of Dhamma. However, these workshops cannot take place at a Vipassana center, as centers are dedicated to the practice of Vipassana only. Therefore, a suitable off-center location is arranged for each course. 

Location: There are currently no workshops scheduled. Please check back to see updates to the schedule.

Cost: There are no charges for the instruction, textbooks, food, or accommodations. These expenses are met by past donations from others. However, there is a $25 administrative fee required upon registration, which is refundable only if not accepted into the course. (Students on waiting list who do not get accepted will also have $25 fee refunded.) Anyone may contribute to our Pāli workshop fund to help fund future Pāli Workshops. All donations to Pariyatti are tax-deductible in accordance with U.S. tax law. 

Acceptance Criteria: This workshop is open to all old students of Vipassana as taught by S.N. Goenka who have completed at least three 10-day courses, served at least one 10-day course, and are trying to maintain their daily practice (if you are close to meeting the criteria and feel the workshop would benefit you, please contact us at about the possibility of enrolling). Old students who do not meet the enrollment criteria may also sign up to serve the course.

Apply online: *No courses currently scheduled. Please check back to see updates to the schedule.

Workshop Format: Vipassana meditation is an integral part of this Pāli workshop, which includes three daily group sittings and morning chanting. Participants will observe noble speech outside of meditation hours. There will be complete segregation of men and women during the workshop. The daily schedule of activities will be similar to that of a 10-day Vipassana course, however, there will be both study and meditation periods throughout the day.
