Mindfulness - Ven. Khenpo Jampa
As one of the pillars of the Theravadan tradition as well as the Mahayana path, the Four Applications of Mindfulness comprise the foundation of the Buddha's teachings. Also known as the Four Essential Recollections, these are simple instructions to be mindful of the body, of feelings, of the mind, of the dharmas, and the phenomena of perception. This teaching is based on Shantideva's Bodhisattvacharyāvatāra, or Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life. The teaching is followed by short instructions on how to meditate on the Four Applications of Mindfulness. Translator: Rigdzin Tingkhye.
