The benefits of vipassana meditation are manifold. It eradicates frustration and disharmony from one's routine life. Vipassana meditation helps one to be liberated from suffering and its deep-seated causes while transferring one to highest spiritual goal through a gradual approach. The liberation from fear helps Vipassana practitioners achieve high levels of achievements in all spheres of human activity. There are various stages in Vipassana meditation, after which one can accomplish the sublime height.
In the Tipitaka the benefits of meditation are further stated:
After an arduous vipassana meditation session, it is known to manifest painful effects upon the practitioner. One begins to sense forceful vibrations, like a flow of energy playing around everywhere. A flow of light, as if scintillating and quivering pours down upon one. This light in Vipassana meditation brings in an impression of loss of physical weight, a floating sensation. At this point, one is usually advised to take in the luminosity of space, oblivious to everything around.
Both the realms of light and darkness in Vipassana meditation are of a higher dimension, converging at a single point, which is the Earth. This is basic the reason one experiences both the Divine and the demonic forces on the Earth. Forces from both hemispheres are incarnated as human beings. The term 'higher dimensions' in Vipassana refers to parallel worlds, from the lower Earth-bound astral worlds of 'dark' forces to the much higher worlds of light beings. These forms or forces are not intelligible to the human eye, as they vibrate at dissimilar wavelengths. Matter is nothing but vibrations of energy, encompassing higher 'invisible' cosmic energies, known only to a few earthly beings. Many of these invisible beings, though not all, are angelic with an air of Divine harmony.
People with an entirely mercenary bent of mind can only envisage what they see with their eyes. The human mind is capable of destroying its environment to satisfy its egotistical needs, building a cruel war industry and digging into unethical politics. This leads to a projection of a future world based on downright destruction. As stated by Vipassana meditation, people who commit such deeds, definitely belong to the dark forces, which initially listen to the commands of the 'man' trying to control them. But at some point of time the same man turns victim to his own works, coming under their control instead. A stupendous light in Vipassana meditation will never, in such instances, come to an individual; he needs to strive towards that goal to perceive transcendence.
In order to realise perfection in Vipassana meditation through a vision of light, certain basic truths must be imbibed in order to avoid the dark pitfalls. God is Absolute. In effect, there are no devils or evil forces that could ever contend with the Absolute. God is intelligibly beyond all negative and positive aspects, such as one perceives in the symbolism of Shiva. The light that is emitted suddenly and unexplained in Vipassana meditation aids one to be in the righteous path to a better understanding of the soul.
The Absolute is beyond any form of duality as he is omnipresent and omnipotent, the Divine reality. One's goal towards the creation of a harmonious world is to become Divine themselves and to perceive a higher consciousness in all relative situations. One of the greatest benefits of the vipassana meditation is the light which is emitted makes one understand both the good and the bad experiences, realising one's true spiritual nature beyond them.
