Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

Are you Fully Aware and Clearly Comprehending?


 

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, a Bhikkhu should dwell fully aware and clearly comprehending.
This is our instruction to you. And how is a Bhikkhu fully aware?
When a Bhikkhu continuously contemplates:
 

1: The Body as an Accumulation...
2: The Feeling as a Sensation...
3: The Mind as a Mood...
4: The Phenomenon as a Mental State..
 

while always acutely alert & clearly comprehending, he thereby removes
any urge, envy, jealousy, frustration & discontent rooted in this world...
In exactly this way is a Bhikkhu fully aware!

And how is a Bhikkhu clearly comprehending? Here the Bhikkhu notes,
understands & observes Feelings as they arise, remain present, and as
these feelings pass away. He also notes, understands and observes any

Thought as it arises, remains present, and as the thought passes away.
He additionally notes, understands and observes any Perception as it

arises, remains present, and as this experience instantly passes away...

In exactly this way is a Bhikkhu clearly comprehending! Bhikkhus, any
Bhikkhu should dwell fully aware and clearly comprehending !
This is our instruction to you ...
