What is Awareness & Clear Comprehension!


The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, a Bhikkhu should dwell aware and clearly comprehending!
This is our instruction to you. How, Bhikkhus, is a Bhikkhu Aware?
Here, Bhikkhus, a Bhikkhu lives contemplating these four objects:


1: Body as a mere form: Just a group of foul and fragile organs...
2: Feeling as a reactive response assigned to any sense contact...
3: Mind as only a changing set of mentalities and habitual moods...
4: Phenomena simply as perceived momentary mental states...


While being keen, ardent, clearly comprehending, and acutely aware
thereby removing covetousness, lust, greed, envy and any discontent,
displeasure and frustration rooted in this evanescent world... 
It is in this very way, Bhikkhus, that a Bhikkhu is Aware...
And how, Bhikkhus, does a Bhikkhu train clear comprehension?
Here, Bhikkhus, a Bhikkhu is one who acts clearly comprehending just

exactly whatever he is doing right now, while going forward or back;
when looking ahead or looking aside; when flexing or extending limbs;
when wearing robes & carrying his bowl; when eating, drinking, tasting
& chewing food; when defecating & urinating; when walking, standing,
sitting; when falling asleep, waking up, speaking, & when keeping silent!
It is indeed in such a way that a Bhikkhu lives in clear comprehension...
Bhikkhus, a Bhikkhu should dwell aware and clearly comprehending.
This is our instruction to you!

Just a painted puppet!
A chain of bones plastered by skin with 9 oozing holes!
A heap of sores & rotten excrement with evil intentions!
