Lions Roar : September 2007
SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2007 45 MANY MEDITATION STUDENTS view body awareness as just a starting point for their practice. They tend to skip over it in order to focus on their mind states and emotions, believing that’s where they will experience the deepest insights. But the truth is, your body is the ideal mirror for discovering the Buddha’s great truths of suf- fering (dukkha), change (anicca), and “not self ” (anatta). In the Anguttara Nikaya (sutta I, 21) the Buddha states, “There is one thing, monks, that, cultivated and regularly practiced leads to a deep sense of urgency...to the supreme peace...to mindfulness and clear comprehension...to the attainment of right vision and knowledge...to happiness here and now...to realizing deliverance by wisdom and the fruition of Holiness: It is mindfulness of the body.” Despite the Buddha’s recommendation, practicing mindfulness of the body is often overlooked as an opportunity for awakening, even when the body is demanding attention. For instance, recently a student informed me at the beginning of a ten-day vipassana meditation retreat I was leading Awakening in the Body Being mindful of the body is a profound, though often overlooked, opportunity to deepen our meditation and develop our insight, says PHILLIP MOFFITT.
