Sample text

Tanhā will go on feeding the Wheel 62 of Paticcasamuppāda. The yogi must be able to watch the vedanā to such a degree of concentration that the cessation of Tanhā will happen. Then the Wheel of Paticcasamuppāda will be broken. Three factors which enable the Wheel of Paticcasamuppāda to function, originate from vedanā incessantly. They are: 1. Rāga-nusaya lobha tanhā which dwells in the sukkha vedanā, 2. Patigha-nusaya dosa which dwells in the dukkha vedanā 3. Avijja-nusaya Moha which dwells in the upekkha vedanā.

When the foot moves forward, he notes the forward motion. Then he notes the gradual downward press of his foot to the ground. In Vipassanā Meditation, conventional names and forms are not the interest of noting. The yogi should try to see the manner of movement in terms of the four constituent elements (dhātu) in all matter, namely: 1. 2. 3. 4. Pathavi-dhātu (element of extension or earth elements) āpo-dhātu (element of cohesion or water element) Tejo-dhātu (element of kinetic energy or fire element) Vāyo-dhātu (element of support of motion, or wind element) When he lifts his right foot, he would notice that it becomes lighter and lighter as it goes up.

Samādhi overwhelms the disease. The samādhi attained at the Sankhārūpekkha Ñāna corresponds to that of the Fourth Jhāna level. The late Venerable Māhāsi Sayādaw has explained that in detail. These three benefits are ordinary (mundane) benefits. The greatest benefit is to have cut off bad kamma that the yogi had done in his previous lives – all the bad kamma that would have taken him to the four woeful states in his future existences. 53 Once the yogi has seen Nibbāna, the gates to the woeful states will be closed to him forever.
