Orlando Insight Meditation Group

A Contemporary Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation Community For Central Florida

This Dharma talk is a continuation of reviews regarding the Fourth Foundation of Mindfulness, particularly focusing on the 4th of the 5 Aggregates, the Mind Conditioning Factors called Cetasikas.  The talk provides a generalized view of how Buddhism describes those mental constituents that form a subjective experience of a self.  The intention of this review is to create an understanding of the general characteristics of the several categories of cetasikas: Universal, Particular, Unwholesome and Wholesome.  These categories will be reviewed in more detail over the course of several subsequent Dharma talks.  During the talk, a chart of the cetasikas was provided during the Zoom meeting through screen sharing; here is that document for future reference:  CETASIKAS POSTER

Here are the notes prepared for this talk:  Overview of the Mind Conditioning Factors

The focus for the next talk with be the Universal cetasikas.
