Vipassana for Hackers (goenka)

" Vipassana requires a 10-day course to learn. Anapana does not. Before his death, S.N. Goenka released both 70-minute audio instructions as MP3s for the Anapana meditation technique.[15] The 70-minute instructions can be found at under “Anapana Meditation for All” and come as four 15-minute sessions plus a 10-minute “daily practice” session. "

the rest of this PDF is a really good read for describing what Vipassana is and what the motivation for it is. The HN discussion below also gives some other people's experiences with it and the benefits or problems that resulted.
