What are the joys and fruits of the practice of Vipassana/mindfulness?
This talk elaborates the peace, joy, freedom that arises from meditation; especially in regard to seeing clearly the nature of thought, papanca and disengaging from the delusions of mind.
We focus, in this record of two talks, on the nature of Papanca or “conceptual proliferation” its roots in compulsive craving and aversion, and a number of different ways to work skillfully with Papanca.
Based on the Honey Ball Sutta, this talk is an exploration of papanca,
a Pali word meaning proliferation of thought in the mind. Mental
proliferation leads into the creation of self and into craving and
comparing, as well as holding on to views and opinions.
