17. Contemplation of 38 parts of a skeleton (Atthika Saññā)

May 29th, 2015|0 Comments

By practicing the Atthika Saññā frequently, one can develop it toward the cessation of defilements. Because one takes signs according to what his/her eyes see, the eyes become uncontrollable and as a result the defilements (lust, hatred, and ignorance) are formed. One can discipline eyes and prevent taking signs, which cause the formation of lust and hatred, by practicing Atthika Saññā.

There is an amazing contentment within that Bhikkhu about the Dhamma preached by the Supreme Buddha. He also could attain the Nirvāna that holds the pleasure beyond all merits and demerits.
Arahant Chuulavachcha Thero
There’s no fear about death in me. There’s no special desire about living as well. I am letting go of this body by establishing mindfulness and wisdom very well.
Arahant Ajita Thero
People who carry water can carry whatever the amount of water they wish. Bow carpenters also can bend bows to their wish. Carpenters who work with wood can also bend those lumbers as they wish. Similarly, noble men can discipline themselves as to their wish.
Arahant Kunhdala Thero

“Dear Bhikkhus,

the birth of the One Person is the rising of a great wisdom (Paññā). It is the rising of a great light; rising of the enlightenment; the rising of the six fold supreme Dhamma (Anuttarīya Dhamma); the witnessing of the four analytical knowledge (Siw Pilhisibhīyā Dhamma); the realization of the infinite elements (Dhātu); the realization of the various elements; the witnessing of the wisdom (Vijjā) and freedom (Vimukti); the witnessing of the Sōwān state; the witnessing of the Sakadāgāmī state; the witnessing of the Anāgāmī state; the witnessing of the Arahat state. Whose birth brings all these to life? It is the birth of the Tathāgata Arahat Sammā Sambuddha.

Meditation

Meditation heals your human life more than by any other means. It also makes your life more meaningful. Practicing meditation is a remarkable way to develop your mind. It is our teacher, the Supreme Buddha, who first taught us the possibility of developing our minds. The Supreme Buddha developed His mind to the highest level first and showed it to us. Thus, the technique that is used to develop the mind is known as meditation.

If you are capable of cultivating the meditation in this very life, your mind will start to develop rapidly. In this effort, you need to have the ability to think well. If you cannot think well, you will not be able to develop your mind. In fact, most people do not develop their minds. Only few humans develop their minds. You can become one among that few. Learn this mindfully and attentively. We will gradually show you how to see your life in depth.
