2019-02-14 2nd Foundation of Mindfulness - Vedana (Feeling Tone) (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 61:30
Tempel Smith
Continuing from the Anapanasati sutta we turn to vedana, the 2nd foundation of mindfulness. With great courage. we can develop contentment no matter the pleasure, pain or neutrality of any give moment. In not understanding vedana we are forever imprisoned by our wrong views. When we can breath consciously in a greater range of pain, pleasure and neutrality we find the path to non-conditional contentment.
