Week five Day two ▯ Rahula  Purpose of Mediation o Intended to produce a “state of perfect mental health, equilibrium, and tranquility.” o Genuine Buddhist Meditation is not about:  Any kind of escape, whether from society or reality  Gaining any kind of “mystical power”  Not about seeking greater power (cravings).  Original word for meditation  ‘meditation’ is not a good word / translation for original word >> bhavana: “cultivation” or “development” <<  mental cultivation or development  very broad, includes feelings and dispositions * Rahula actually uses culture instead of cultivation * ▯ ▯ Two kinds of meditation  General level o Insight meditation  Specifically Buddhist, developed/discovered by the Buddha  It DOES lead to Nirvana  One DOES NOT need to be a Buddhist to practice * If you practice this meditation, it does NOT automatically make you a Buddhist *  Mindfulness of breathing  Free us from distraction, calm at mind  Mindfulness of everyday activity  Free of worry / distraction and to enjoy life  Mindfulness of sensations and feelings  A reflective space / separation. Not “your”; think of it as “a”.  Meditation of the state of ones mind  Thoughts and dispositions to act, and why?  Meditation of ethical, spiritual, and intellectual subjects  Thinking something over, linguistic, what will benefit you? o Concentration meditation  Not specifically Buddhist, but belongs to Indian philosophical practice  It DOES NOT lead to Nirvana, except insofar as it assists Insight meditation ▯
