Re: Awareness vs Mindfulness?

You come across as not a meditator but merely a Pali language student. How can the above be true when what you post is not the heart of Buddhist meditation? :roll: If thinking was the heart of Buddhist meditation, why are there suttas, such as MN 19 & 20 about eradicating thoughts, including wholes...

Re: Awareness vs Mindfulness?

I see it as just using the elements as an analogy for non-reactivity to whichever thoughts occur rather than a detailed contemplation of the elements. The "element analogy" is literally as follows: " agreeable & disagreeable sensory impressions that have arisen will not stay in charge of your mind ...

Re: Question about pedagogy

These are the Four Noble truths, this is dependent arising The 4NTs and DO are the same thing. For example, AN 3.61 says: To one experiencing feeling I declare, 'This is stress.' I declare, 'This is the origination of stress.' I declare, 'This is the cessation of stress.' I declare, 'This is the pa...

The Buddha did not teach the above as a fetter. The Buddha taught lust for form & formless. In the teaching of the fetters, 'rebirth' is not mentioned. The 'rebirth' is Sujatoism. :smile:

The video appears to be about the Bhikkhu Sati in MN 38 and not mindfulness sati in MN 10.

Re: Awareness vs Mindfulness?

I see it as just using the elements as an analogy for non-reactivity to whichever thoughts occur rather than a detailed contemplation of the elements. Secular mindfulness teaches anatta in seeing thoughts as passing events in the mind without grasping to them as 'me' or 'my' thoughts. I think it ge...

Re: Awareness vs Mindfulness?

It seems to me that what the "mindfulness movement" misses is that the core of the Buddhist practice is best described in MN19 and MN20. Thanks Doodoot, this is a crucial argument for practice. Progress on the Buddhist path is impossible if we simply observe the Breath as an object, the gatekeeper ...

Re: Question about pedagogy

Alternatively, do people have any recommendations for books and resources which really focus on the connections between elements of Buddhist doctrine rather than just relaying those elements? Sure, back to topic, Dhamma Wheel with a poster such as my good self is a "resource". Thus, moving on now t...

Re: Question about pedagogy

Unsurprising, a scholar-practicioner of the level of Thannssaro Bhikkhu would be entirely beyond you. Thanissaro is often embarrassingly wrong, such as when Sujato censured him for his 'Not-Self Strategy' & appearing to believe the teaching of Vacchagotta in SN 44.10 was the teaching of the Buddha....

How are the four contemplations of Vipassana along with anapana are practiced. Are the breath, body, sensations, mind and mind phenomena observed simultaneously or one at a time or in combinations during meditation session and while doing day to day work. Hello.

Re: Question about pedagogy

Books like What the Buddha Taught feel somewhat toothless(?) Very traditional or cultural book of Sri Lankan style dogma. Whereas books like Thanissaro Bhikkhu's on rebirth helps me to see the connections between elements of the teaching (oh, that's what DO actually means... of that's how my negati...

No. Sampajjana means awareness and clear comprehension of ones present action and what one is doing in relation to the Buddhist Path.
