(Sati) is a Link to Enlightenment!
Awareness Link to Awakening (sati-sambojjhanga) is basically the
same mental property (sati-cetasika), which inherently is included in:
of Awareness (satipatthāna)
The Ability of Awareness (satindriya)
The Power of Awareness (satibala)
Awareness Path Factor (sammā-sati-magganga)
Trained, developed and refined
in a degree that gradually enlightens!
The Buddha once said: What
fermentations (āsava) should be
overcome by development? If a Bhikkhu by
careful & rational attention
Awareness Link to Awakening
based on seclusion,
ceasing, and culminating in relinquishment, neither can any fermentation,
nor any fever, nor any vexation ever arise in him. MN 2 [i 11]
The Ability of Awareness is to
anchor attention on any chosen object and
when this ability is
unshakable & well fixed, it is the Power of Awareness!
Awareness is a Foundation (patthana),
when well established (upatthana)
continually - without
distractions interrupting - on these
1: Body as mere form: Just a
group of foul and fragile organs...
2: Feeling as a mere reactive response assigned to any contact...
3: Mind as only a changing set of
habitual mentalities and moods...
4: Phenomena simply as
appearances of momentary mental states...
Not lasting, but transient! Not
pleasure, but pain! Not self, but impersonal!
Neither neglecting, nor forgetting
that these universal characteristics are
relevant and true for absolutely all aspects of these four objects, the false
and distorted perception of beauty
in what really is disgusting, of pleasure
in what really is painful, of
self in what really is selfless and impersonal,
gradually fades away and the
fermentations (āsava) of sensing,
of views, of ignorance and of
becoming are overcome by elimination.
