The Seven Factors for Awakening

by Peter Carlson on November 17, 2016

During this talk, Peter described overcoming the five hindrances as “warding off the demons”; cultivating the Seven Factors For Awakening represents “feeding the angels” of liberating awareness.  Each of the seven was described and explained as to their function in the process of awakening, related to the recently discussed Wholesome Cetasikas.  This was a very difficult topic to discuss with the thoroughness warranted to understand and apply these factors; these accompanying notes provide a more thorough exploration of their function and the ways and means to cultivate them:  bojjhanga-7-awakening-factors

Next week’s meeting will provide opportunities to reflect on how Buddhist practice fosters gratitude on the eve of Thanksgiving.
