SN 47.35: Sata Sutta — Mindful

Postby mikenz66 » Tue Jan 22, 2013 6:42 pm

SN 47.35vPTS: S v 180vCDB ii 1657
Sata Sutta: Mindful
translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu


What does it mean to be mindful? What does it mean to be alert?
http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html



At Savatthi. "Stay mindful, monks, and alert. This is our instruction to you all.

"And how is a monk mindful? There is the case where a monk remains focused on the body in & of itself — ardent, alert, & mindful — subduing greed & distress with reference to the world. He remains focused on feelings... mind... mental qualities in & of themselves — ardent, alert, & mindful — subduing greed & distress with reference to the world. This is how a monk is mindful.

"And how is a monk alert? There is the case where feelings are known to the monk as they arise, known as they persist, known as they subside. Thoughts are known to him as they arise, known as they persist, known as they subside. Perceptions are known to him as they arise, known as they persist, known as they subside. This is how a monk is alert.

"So stay mindful, monks, and alert. This is our instruction to you all."

SN 47.35: Sata Sutta
Translated by John Ireland


http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/auth ... passage-69

"Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu should live mindful and clearly comprehending. This is our instruction to you. And how is a bhikkhu mindful? Herein, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu lives practicing body-contemplation on the body feeling... feeling-contemplation on feelings... mind-contemplation on mind... mind-object-contemplation on the objects of mind, ardent, clearly comprehending and mindful, having overcome covetousness and grief concerning the world. In this manner, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu is mindful. And how is a bhikkhu clearly comprehending?

"Herein, bhikkhus, feelings are known to a bhikkhu as they arise, known as they stay, known as they come to an end. Thoughts are known as they arise, known as they stay, known as they come to an end. Perceptions are known as they arise, known as they stay, known as they come to an end. In this manner, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu is clearly comprehending.

"A bhikkhu should live mindful and clearly comprehending. This is our instruction to you."

There is certainly some overlapping. I would say that sampajañña applies exclusively to direct experience of phenomena whereas dhammavicaya has a broader meaning of investigation, both by direct experience as well as by means of the intellect and mutual cross-questioning.
