Are you Fully Aware and Clearly
The Blessed Buddha once
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
2: The Feeling as a Sensation...
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
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
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 ...
