In the Pali language of the early Buddhist texts, vipassana means "to see things as they really are". Vipassana is an epic collection of four compositions totaling about 60 minutes that together hope to "stimulate the mind and refresh the spirit". Featuring 25 instrumentalists and singers, the final composition also features Denise Levertov's beautiful poem Variation and Reflection on a Theme by Rilke.
