On Tuesday, Assam Education Minister Ranoj Pegu announced that teachers can now take a special optional 12-day leave to undergo Vipassana meditation training.

The education minister explained, “Vipassana, often misspelled as ‘Bipashana’, is an ancient Indian meditation technique focusing on the connection between mind and body through disciplined attention to physical sensations. It aims to purify the mind, eliminating negative qualities like anger and greed, leading towards enlightenment. Practiced widely in non-sectarian settings, often in 10-day retreats, it emphasizes self-observation and mindfulness”. 

“Any teacher willing to voluntarily participate in the Vipassana course will get 12 days of leave. Because, we want our teachers to be capable of teaching our students Vipassana – to meditate, enhance attention and manage their minds positively”, he further stated.

According to the reports, the Axom Sarba Siksha Abhiyan Mission has communicated with district commissioners across all districts and principal secretaries of autonomous councils. 

They have instructed district commissioners of all districts and principal sacretaries of autonomous councils to take measures for extensively disseminating information among the state’s teachers, encouraging their participation in the course.
