Vietnam War The Vietnam War was a military conflict in present day Vietnam occurring from 1959 to April 30, 1975. The conflict was a successful effort by the North Vietnamese and the indigenous National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam, (also known as the Viet Cong) to impose on Vietnam a communist system, defeating the South Vietnamese Republic of Vietnam (RVN).  The chief cause of the war was the failure of Vietnamese nationalists, in the form of the Viet Minh, to gain control of southern Vietnam both during and after their struggle for independence from France in the First Indochina War of 1946–54.  The U.S., in particular, deployed large numbers of military personnel to South Vietnam between 1954 and 1973. U.S. military advisors first became involved in Vietnam as early as 1950, when they began to assist French colonial forces. In 1956, these advisers assumed full responsibility for training the Army of the Republic of Vietnam or ARVN. President Kennedy increased America's troop number from 500 to 16,000. Large numbers of American combat troops began to arrive in 1965 and remained in South Vietnam until August 1972. The last American troops left the country on April 30, 1975.
Vipassana Also known as "insight meditation," Vipassana is an ancient technique where one sits comfortably and impartially pays attention to whatever is arising, internally or externally, with no judgments, aversions, or desires. Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced directly by disciplined attention to the physical sensations that form the life of the body, and that continuously interconnect and condition the life of the mind. It is this observation-based, self-exploratory journey to the common root of mind and body that dissolves mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion.
