    What is Feeding the Awareness (Sati) Link to Awakening!



The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, just as this body, is sustained by feeding, exists in dependence on feeding
and cannot survive without food, exactly & even so are the Seven Links to Awakening
also sustained by feeding, they can also only exist in dependence on feeding and they
cannot survive without feeding... And what, Bhikkhus, is the feeding of the emergence
of any yet unarisen Awareness Link to Awakening and feeding of the completion by
development of any already arisen Awareness Link to Awakening?
There are states that are the basis and source for the Awareness Link to Awakening!!
Frequently giving careful and rational attention to them, is feeding the arising of any
unarisen Link to Awareness Link to Awakening and feeding the gradual fulfillment by
development of any already arisen Awareness Link to Awakening...

And what, Bhikkhus, is the starving that obstructs the emergence of any yet unarisen
Awareness Link to Awakening & which also hinders any already arisen Awareness Link
from reaching any fulfillment by development? There are, Bhikkhus, things that are
basis and source for the Awareness Link to Awakening: not giving frequent, careful &
rational attention to them; not considering them much; is the starving that prevents any
unarisen Awareness Link to Awakening from arising and also blocks any already arisen
Awareness Link to Awakening from reaching complete fulfillments by development...

Comments from the classical commentaries:
Establishing continual mental presence standing near the object is the characteristic
of the Awareness Link to Awakening (sati-sambojjhanga). Neither neglecting any nor
forgetting anything is the function of Awareness. Remaining anchored on the object,
undistracted & undisrupted, is the manifestation of the Awareness Link to Awakening.

The food that are basis and source the arising of the Awareness Link to Awakening is:
