Please see a beautiful quote from the Vipassana Meditation Guru Shri S.N. Goenka ji about the Vipassana Meditation.
I do not wish to convert people from one organised religion to another; I have no interest in any of these organised religions. My interest is in Dhamma-the Truth, the teachings of all Enlightened Ones. If at all there is any conversion, it should be from misery to happiness, from defilement to purity, from bondage to liberation, from ignorance to enlightenment. – S. N. Goenka

Useful Insight: In the 10 day Vipassana Meditation Course, the Meditators are asked to abstain from killing, stealing, sexual activity, speaking falsely, and consuming intoxicants. This simple code of moral conduct serves to calm the mind, which otherwise would be too agitated to perform the task of self-observation.
