Dharma Talks

From the buddhist perspective mind includes more than just thinking. It is the place where all experience can be experienced.

And how, monks, does a monk dwell practising mind – contemplation on the mind?

Herein a monk knows the mind with lust, as was lust; the mind without lust as without lust; the mind with hate as with hate; the mind without hate as without hate; the mind with delusion as with delusion; the mind without delusion as without delusion.

(Maha Satipatthana Sutta tr. Nyanaponika Mahathera)
