What I take away from Bhikkhu Bodhi's essay is that sati is not a state of being. It is an activity. If one must use a noun to translate sati, Simone Weil’s “attention” deserves some consideration. The way Simone Weil uses “attention” in her book Gravity and Grace conveys action and reminds us that to end suffering means to wake up.
