Continuing with Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta (Turning the dharma wheel), we examine the four truths, and in particular how they show the Buddha's understanding of pleasure and pain. The truths provide the fundamental structure of the teaching. We see dukkha presented as the pain arising from our delusion and drivenness. Then we look at how Siddhartha, before he became Buddha, turned his practice around through a spontaneous memory from his childhood which stimulated the arising of a fundamental question: “Why am I afraid of pleasure?” The practice requires pleasure — but what kind of pleasure?

This is a foundation Insight meditation practice. In some cases individuals who are very conscious of their breathing, such as those with panic disorder, initially find this practice difficult. If this is the case they are recommended to bring attention to something other than the breath until it becomes more comfortable.

We continue with Anattalakkhana Sutta (Characteristics of not-self), seeing not-self (anatta) as a practice rather than as a doctrine. This practice revolves around the fundamental turning point of nibbida, “disenchantment.” From disenchantment comes liberation, through the “just-this-ness” (tathata) of experience.

Tonight we come to Adittapariyaya Sutta (Burning …). The Buddha taught this to the former dreadlocks ascetics, presenting his analysis of the human being as constituted by six sense fields. These are the sensitivities of eye, ear, nose, tongue, body and mind, and their corresponding sense objects.

The six sense fields are the counterpart of the five aggregates, which were presented to the five companions in his first teaching. While the aggregates are predominantly mental (four of the five are mental), the sense fields are predominantly physical (five of the six are physical). While the aggregates construct a self primarily through cognition, culminating in our sense of narrative unity, the sense fields construct a self primarily through feeling, culminating in our sense of sensual unity. The teaching of the sense fields are centred on drivenness (tanha) and the dis-ease (dukkha).

x66.mp3Integrating Mindfulness into Daily Life769 viewsA basic skill in Vipassana meditation is to acquire the ability to give full and sustained attention or mindfulness to what you are doing as you are doing it; yet we rarely, if ever, give anything our full attention, at best it is just partial attention. While most practitioners can establish mindfulness in the supportive conditions of a retreat the challenge then is to integrate mindfulness into daily life.
