the place of cognition in satipatthana?

Postby alan... » Tue Dec 18, 2012 7:03 pm

most teachers teach "bare mindfulness" but where and when do we do the rest of insight? contemplating vanishing/arising/eternally/internally/etc.?

first thanks

So to make it clearer - as i read in a mahasi pdf book "practical vipassana exercises" he says not to think about anything and you will undertand automaticly - i think you agree on this

But is this true also when i have the small thoughts that are directed to the practice like : "hmmm all this experiences come and go very fast" i should try and note them as soon as possible and not think of them ?

Hi mike i like your answers - especailly in different more clearer threads :lol:

i try to avoid looking at the internet so this thread is a problem for me - so i will stop comenting on this post i think it just strengthens my OCD by wanting to check it so much

i think i partly understand but not in a full clear way but its good enough for now i hope i will understand better after finishing the pdf

Hi Purple,

Don't worry, understanding is an on-going process.
