Noble Silence ended at 11 am today. Everyone was so happy and kept blabbing and blabbing for the whole day. It felt funny how we had stayed together for 10 days, sleeping in the same room together, meditation together, dining together, yet we still hadn’t yet introduced ourselves to each other but until today.
The center showed us books by Goenka, and books about Vipassana, as well as photos of Vipassana centers in other parts of the world. Some of these centers are very nice, providing private bedroom for each student, as well as spacious area for students to walk around during rest periods. Checking out these photos and descriptions makes me want to go and take courses in these overseas centers sometime in the future 😉
