Once when the Venerable
Anuruddha was dwelling at
in Jeta's Grove,
Anāthapindika's Park, a number of Bhikkhus went
Anuruddha & exchanged polite
greetings with him. Then they sat down and asked the Ven.
Sir: What has the Venerable Anuruddha developed & cultivated so
that he has attained to his famous greatness of direct knowledge? He answered: It is, friends, because I have developed and cultivated these four
Foundations of Awareness, that I have won great direct knowledge!
What four? Here, friends, I dwell constantly contemplating upon: 1:
only as a formed group, neither as me, lasting, nor happiness! 2:
only as passing sensations, neither as mine, nor pleasure! 3:
only as temporary mentalities, neither as 'I', nor any self! 4:
only as mental states, neither as substance, nor reals! while eager,
aware, thereby removing any desire & frustration rooted in this world! It is, friends, because
I have developed & cultivated these
Foundations of Awareness, that I have become empowered with the suprahuman forces: I see & understand as it really is, any present defilement, the obstruction of, the cleaning of, and the emergence from all the subtle
all the deliverances, all concentrations, & all higher mental attainments.
It is, because I have developed and
fully refined these
indeed supreme Four
Foundations of Awareness, that I by the full elimination of the mental fermentations, in this very life enter & dwell in the stainless
release of mind,
release by understanding, realizing it myself with
direct knowledge, gained through direct personal experience...
Foundation of Awareness = 4 Great Frames
