Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will go to Nagpur to attend a 10-day vipassana session in first week of next month. An AAP functionary said the Delhi Chief Minister will be in a meditation centre in Nagpur and will not have access to newspapers, television or any other media.

The CM’s plan to go for vipassana comes nearly one-and-a-half year after he had gone for the same session after hectic campaign for Lok Sabha elections in May 2014.

“Delhi Chief Minister will take a break from work for ten days as he will fly to Nagpur to attend vipassana session from August 1 to August 10 there,” said a senior government official.

His deputy Manish Sisodia will be in charge of the government then. Kejriwal is known to be an ardent practitioner of Vipassana. After a hectic campaign after the Lok Sabha polls in 2014 and Delhi Assembly polls in 2013, the AAP chief had taken a break for practising vipassana.

      Sadhu is derived from one who does perpetual sadhana. This sadhak can develop both sevak or selfish mind set and the guru/teacher (who leads from darkness to light) has to be extremely selective before initiating some body into it. The experience one gets is very subjective and justified by his deeds or service. Otherwise, it is just escapism or justification of what one did.
