True Mindfulness

buddha (1)I dwell constantly contemplating upon the body

only as a collection of parts, not as I, me, mine, or self.

I dwell constantly contemplating upon feelings

only as passing reactions, not as I, me, mine, or self.

I dwell constantly contemplating upon the mind

only as habitual and transient emotions, not as I, me, mine, or self.

I dwell constantly contemplating upon all phenomena

only as mental elaborations, not as I, me, mine, or 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.
