The chief minister of Delhi “Mr. Arvind Kejriwal,” has returned to Delhi after spending ten days at a retreat Meditation center and has surrounded himself with many questions. He also posted on his social networking sites that the ten days of the vipassana course have made him feel rejuvenated.

Delhi’s Chief Minister, an active practitioner in Vipassana
Politicians are taking various measures to resolve the ever-increasing tension brought about by politics. While some leaders do regular yoga for relaxation, some go on family excursions to take a few days off. The Delhi chief minister is instead of taking stress-relieving measures by going to the Vipassana meditation center. The reason for Kejriwal’s leave is because he is preparing for the next elections. Dhammathali Vipassana Center in the Galta Valley of Jaipur is where the Delhi CM Kejriwal attempts to control the mind and observe his thoughts.
Having attended Vipassana sessions in Dharamkot, Nagpur, and Bengaluru in the past, Mr. Kejriwal is a regular practitioner of the practice. He had practiced Vipassana for ten days in Nagpur in 2016. He went to Dharamkot in Himachal Pradesh in the following year and Igatpuri in Maharashtra the following year.
A look at CM’s schedule over the past ten days
This article will summarize Kejriwal’s stay at this Vipassana center for the last ten days. Under the guidance of Vipassana teacher Bharat Grover of Mumbai, CM Kejriwal was doing meditation at this center. Each day Kejriwal woke up at four in the morning and had to stay alone in his room. The breakfast was served at 6:30 am, and the lunch was served at 11 am. It was strictly forbidden to watch TV, read newspapers, listen to music, or even use a mobile phone during these ten days. There were no family interactions for even sadhaks.
In the Vipassana center, the seeker had only 45 minutes of rest during the day, aside from breakfast and lunch, and by 9 pm, he had to retire to his room and sleep with the lights off. The sadhaks, therefore, needed to perform sadhana for about fifteen hours a day. Alongside solo and group meditation, there are also discourses recited at this time.
About Vipassana Centre that Mr. Arvind Kejriwal visited
A Vipassana Centre can be found in the Galtaji area of Jaipur. It’s an ancient Indian meditation technique that involves abstaining from communication for an extended period to bring about mental wellness. Mr. Arvind Kejriwal visited this meditation center because of its ancient features too.
The aim of Vipassana is self-transformation through observation of the self. By paying attention to the physical sensations that form the body’s life and that constantly connect and condition the life of the mind, emphasizes the profound interconnection between mind and body. Self-exploration through observation of self and others will lead to a balanced reason that is full of love and compassion, which is the way to dissolve mental impurity.
According to the meditation center, as one master the science of the brain, one’s judgments, feelings, and feelings become clear. We can understand directly through our experiences how we grow or regress, how we produce suffering, or how we free ourselves from suffering. We become more aware, non-deluded, self-controlled, and at peace with ourselves.
Throughout India, many Vipassana meditation centers are dedicated to connecting the mind and body, relieving stress, and providing relaxation from worldly activities.
There are three steps to the sadhana in Vipassana centers. First, the seeker must learn the art of controlling his breath and stream of exhalations through pranayama for the first three days. The fourth day will be devoted to deep meditation yoga. On the last day of camp, it is known as Mangal Maitri, and those participating in the center share their various experiences with those around them.
