Pali Canon

Vipassana” can be translated as “clear seeing” or “insight,” and can refer to the approach to meditation taught by the Buddha, or to Buddhist communities in tracing their roots back to a modernist (20th century) revival of Buddhist meditation practices referred to as the “Vipassana movement.” Most Vipassana movement teachers were Burmese, and they had many western students (such as Jack Kornfield and Sharon Salzberg) who brought the practice to the west with great success.
