Description

Ajahn Dhammasīha encourages us to reconnect with our physical body. We're too much in our heads, lost in mental proliferation. We have to bring awareness back into direct experience of our body.


For starters, we can contemplate the 4 elements earth, water, heat & wind, while walking on grass, or walking on the beach, and anchor our awareness inside our body in the present moment.


In Majjhima Nikāya (Middle Length Discourses) #119, the Buddha states that all wholesome states leading to true knowledge are included if one fully develops mindfulness of the body.


Additionally, one will be able to:

  • Conquer discontent, fear & anxiety
  • Endure heat and cold and pain and irritation from verbal provocations
  • Develop Samādhi
  • Develop all psychic powers
  • Attain release from all defilements
