Orlando Insight Meditation Group

A Contemporary Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation Community For Central Florida

This talk reviews passadhi bojjhanga (pah-sah-dee bow-jahn-gah), the Tranquility Awakening Factor.  This factor is closely cooperative with the remaining two Awakening Factors, Concentration and Equanimity.  Tranquility is an antidote for the hindrance of restlessness and worry, and can be experienced with practice as a quality of expansiveness in the mind that is less affected by craving and clinging.  During the talk Peter described various meditation practices and lifestyle activities that support the quality of tranquility and further the process of liberation from dukkha, distress and confusion.

Here are the notes prepared for this talk:  THE TRANQUILITY AWAKENING FACTOR
