Dwell contemplating the body in the body, ardent, clearly comprehending, unified, with concentrated one-pointed mind, in order to know the body as it really is.
Dwell contemplating feeling in feelings… in order to know feelings as they really are.
Dwell contemplating mind in mind… in order to know mind as it really is.
Dwell contemplating dhamma in dhammas… in order to know dhammas as they really are.
Enryu shared on the teachings on the four Foundations of Mindfulness:
Satipatthana is a central practice in the Buddha’s teachings, meaning “the establishment of mindfulness” or “presence of mindfulness”, or alternatively “foundations of mindfulness”, aiding the development of a wholesome state of mind. In Theravada Buddhism, applying mindful attention to four domains, the body, feelings, the mind, and key principles or categories of the Buddha’s teaching (dhammās), is thought to aid the elimination of the five hindrances and the development of the seven aspects of wakefulness. In the popular understanding, mindfulness has developed into a practice of bare awareness to calm the mind.
