Clear Comprehension »

Friends:

A Simple Way to Establish Awareness:

Friends, this highly advantageous praxis can be undertaken by anyone, at any time, all
day long, in all situations, and at all locations! Therefore remember it, and repeat it:

When walking, one understands: "This body is walking.."
When standing, one knows: "This body is standing.."
If sitting, one notes: "This body is sitting down now.."
While lying down, one reflects: "This body is lying down.."

When moving forward or returning, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When looking forward or backward, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When bending or extending a limb, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When dressing or carrying things, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When eating, drinking, or chewing, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When defecating or urinating, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When walking, standing, or sitting, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When falling asleep or waking up, one clearly comprehends exactly that..
When talking or dwelling in silence, one clearly comprehends exactly that..

Rational and alert attention is thus a cause of ultra-clear acute comprehension!
When continuous Awareness is established, it can prevent all sloppy mistakes,
and their painful after-effects... In this very way does clear comprehension lead
to reduced frustration, and gaining a new satisfaction! If correctly cultivated,
and made much of, this praxis will be for all being's welfare and happiness
for a long, long time... Why so? Clear comprehension purifies the purpose,
the suitability, the domain, and the unconfused focus of any activity.. Basta!
