Part of a series of teachings on A Presentation of the Establishment of Mindfulness by Gyalwa Chokyi Gyaltsen.

  • A review of questions 1-6 from the first quiz
    • Meditate on the body, feelings, mind, and phenomena to:
    • Release the grasping of inherent existence
    • Prevent from seeing body as the basis of self
    • Prevent us from clinging to feelings as objects of enjoyment
    • Help overcome clinging to mind as the actual self or “I”
    • Help overcome clinging to phenomena
  • Hearers, solitary realizers, and bodhisattvas meditate on four establishments of mindfulness differently; difference is in motivation and lines of reasoning
    • Look at exactly what is the body, exactly what are feelings, exactly what is the mind, exactly what are these mental factors; see no inherently existent self in them
    • Reasons to meditate on foulness of body and relationship with our body
