Description

Right mindfulness is defined by the Buddha much more precise and profound than just "choiceless/non-reactive awareness".


Firstly, our mindfulness has to be directed to one the following four areas:

  1. The physical body
  2. Feeling: Pleasant or painful or neutral; wordly or spiritual
  3. The mind: Affected by desire or free from it; affected by aversion or free fom it; and so on
  4. Dhamma: Stucturing and anyalysing/contemplating our total conscious experience in terms of the categories the Buddha has taught, e.g the arising and passing away of the five hindrances or the five groups of clinging, or contemplating experience in terms of 4 Noble Truths


Secondly, mindfulness has to be accompanied by wisdom/understanding, right effort, and the develpment of all other factors of the Eightfold Path.


Thirdly, one has to be mindful of arising and passing away of the phenomena one is observing, discerning their impermanent and conditioned nature.
