Mindfulness is the action of paying attention to whatever is happening while it is happening whereas vipassana is the cultivation of a special kind of insight in the true nature of reality.

Originally, mindfulness and vipassana were non related terms. But in the modern western teaching of mindfulness meditation, the two have become almost synonymous.
