 Q: There are so many meditation methods, why this moving meditation?

 

LUANGPOR THONG: Because Mahasati Meditation is a natural method which we can practice anywhere, anytime and in all activities. "Knowing Element" is a pure and natural quality that exists in every human being. Human body cannot stay still. It moves naturally all the time. Mahasati Meditation is a method that emphasizes the present moment all the time. Practitioners will see their body and mind, and their own thought which is the source of suffering (anger, greed, delusion).

If so then, the most satisfied state of pure awareness is... true calmness,meaning without attachment, or should one say without thought or perception? It is simply a peacefully calm state of awareness. Like an infants first view of its mother. What to Do? There is not hope, nor future thoughts it is simply awareness,completetly satisfied. Therefore I will not ask for any thoughts. The closer you get to awareness the closer to your teacher.

Can Awareness and Compassion be liken to the action of breathing, and is true calmness the state between them most satisfied? Or mostly aware? Is the state of true calmness the satisfied state of acting in constant awareness. Awareness liken to inhalation to bring in and to understand,to know. Compassion exhalation to give back to share,to give of one selflessly... Awareness without attachment is like the satisfied state of inhalation, that balanced point of contentment, knows all that is required.Is Compassion without attachment the satisfied state of exhalation given all that is required, free and selflessly?.

The more awareness,wisdom,and insite one attains....That equal amount of compassion,calming and serenity must be achieved to balance the mind. Yes? We must focus on the awarenessness with compassion. This balance of awareness(vipassana) and compassion(samatha) is like the wings of a bird. If not balanced the bird simply goes in circles. Yes? Ones awareness without compassion,or compassion without awareness, is not very helpful, as one may experinece the turbulent flow of afflictions of the ignorance of unfortunate fear,confusion,arrogance,and anger. Yes? It would seem that the greater the calmness the greater the generated insite, that selflessly erupts within us. The greater the insite the greater the calmness that selflessly erupts within us as it is required for that level.. But selfishly shatters us,and eliminates our conventional phenomena to an awareness of emptiness blossoming into selflessness. As each fuel itself , and burns off ones selfishness. This process may cause a touch of unbalanced inner afflictions. These unbalanced inner afflictions found are nothing else than mindfulness. Yes? Mindful to express the cause that one must balance the other through effect. Yes,now I understand that Buddhas hair of conventional cause and effect was cut once. And as his ultimate began to grow. Yes? Tashi Deleks!

I have the same confusion with alex.Because right here and now all information we can get is from internet.And these information are nothing but words which can be comprehend with subtle difference from its original meaning.And this may lead to wrong practice.If we have a teacher whose wisdom is confirmed,who can tell if we are on the right path,doing the right thing,our mind will be with no doubt while practicing.

LuangPor Teeane stated that our first goal should be to know "rupa" (form, materialistic form) and "nama" (name, non-form, intangible things). I am troubled with the phrase "nama rupa" which is used in many Buddhist texts. What is "nama rupa" ? Is it something intangible (nama) that refers to rupa (tangible) ? Please provide detail treatment on this. Thank you.
