08. Eight-fold path of Mindfulness

Eightfold path of mindfulness Pl note that we have kept the unedited version for originalityDiscover more than 200 practices. They are different to suit people with different temperament Three groups of practices in the eightfold path of mindfulness In reality, the eightfold path is not practiced one after the other. This eightfold path is are components, comparable to a smartphone it's hardware and software, helps to do messaging, texting, calling, taking a photo and many other functions. No doubt, in the beginning, we should practice these steps one after the other, but with regular practice, commitment and patience, all eight steps work together in the lives of a seeker. Three groups consist of the eightfold path. Discipline and education of mind have three paths namely right speech, right speech, and right livelihood. Regular practice with wisdom has three paths namely right effort, right mental state, and right mindfulness. The wisdom practice has two paths namely right knowledge and right intention. The final goal is the end of suffering, the first group aims at discipline and education of mind is working on the mind, instead of mind working on us. The second groups succeed only when we know and experience -what is working on the mind. Many people think that the two groups will lead them to end suffering and miss the third group. The third group allows the mind to reflect the state of mindfulness and expresses the liberated state in daily life. Eastern wisdom aims at the discovery of subjective reality in the inner space. Science aims at the discovery of 'objective reality' in the outer space. Both discover the truth but in the opposite direction. Science has made tremendous progress, does not mean, it can discover the subjective reality. It can complement mindfulness by understanding. In the state of mindfulness, the Science explores the physiological, neurological and psychological changes. It does not mean that they know what the mindfulness state is. Eastern Wisdom declares four steps to succeed in any practice-Listen and learn from a teacher the principles-Contemplate for conviction and clarity and reflect for freedom from doubts.-Practice regularly with wisdom- know from teacher, how many times, when and where-Experience the change – give feedback to the teacher for progress and perfection Every Episode in this show is unique because it deals with suffering, cause of suffering, way to end the suffering and awakening Select the title of the series and start the journey Ideal Practitioner: anyone aspires for inner peace and happiness can do the practice.Pl note that we have kept the unedited version for originalityYour feedback is welcome Thanks Girish JhaDisclaimer: please read disclaimer before practice at www.girishjha.org
