I learned about S.N. Goenka when reading a few books by Ram Dass. Interestingly, Goenka told Dass and many other followers of the Maharaji, “You don’t need a stinking guru” (I’m paraphrasing a bit there). Despite that, Dass and many other Maharaji disciples learned how to meditate from Goenka.
LionsRoar.com has this article, The Universal Meditation Technique of S.N. Goenka, which is a nice interview with Norman Fischer.
