Four Foundations of Mindfulness

1467272_549254828492930_841537995_nI dwell constantly contemplating upon

the body only as a collection of parts,

not as I, me, mine, nor self;

feelings only as passing reactions,

not as I, me, mine, nor self;

the mind only as habitual and transient emotions,

not as I, me, mine, nor self;

and all phenomena only as mental elaborations,

not as I, me, mine, nor self.

—Bhikshu Anuruddha, Samyutta Nikāya

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
