Rahul Gandhi told ED officials about the importance of Vipassana Rahul Gandhi explain the importance of Vipassana to Enforcement Department officers during inquiry

National In the Herald case, the Directorate of Recovery interrogated Rahul Gandhi for five days and a total of fifty hours. For the first time since the inquiry, Rahul Gandhi said in a public function of the Congress that “the authorities cannot tire out. Officers come and go. They were probably getting instructions from their superiors to continue my inquiry. But even after 11 hours of continuous interrogation, I did not get tired. Then the authorities told me that they were tired and asked me what was the secret of not getting tired. I thought I would not tell them the real reason. But I told them that I practice Vipassana and I have to sit for 6 to 8 hours while practicing it, so I have got used to it ”. Rahul Gandhi is a believer in Vipassana. Rahul Gandhi is not alone in doing Vipassana. Many political leaders practice Vipassana. Apart from Rahul, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also often takes breaks for Vipassana sessions and other party leaders also emphasize the importance of Vipassana.

In 2014, under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, the Congress had contested the Lok Sabha elections. After the humiliating defeat in this election, Rahul Gandhi stayed at the Vipassana Center for 57 days. At the time, there was a great deal of secrecy. Earlier, in April 2013, Rahul had organized a three-day convention of the Youth Congress at Vipassana Ashram in Mohankheda.

In 2017, BJP MP Poonam Mahajan had said in an event organized by India Today Group, “The minds of Vipassana practitioners are confused. The Congress had responded to Poonam Mahajan’s public outcry against Rahul Gandhi. Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, while replying to Poonam Mahajan, had said, “Whoever is spiritual is not confused, but whoever calls him that is confused.”

In 2018, President Ramnath Kovind visited the Global Vipassana Pagoda in Mumbai and appreciated the benefits of meditation techniques. Speaking on the occasion, he said, “Vipassana is a meditation technique taught by Lord Buddha. It consists of three simple rules – ethics, self-realization and concentration of mind. These rules apply equally to all, regardless of caste, religion, language or gender.
