Orlando Insight Meditation Group

A Contemporary Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation Community For Central Florida

Continuing a review of the 52 cetasikas, conditioning factors in the mind, the focus for this talk are each of the 7 Universal Mind Conditioners: Feeling, Perception, Contact, Volition, Concentration, Vitality and Attention.  These factors participate in every moment of consciousness, whether the mind manifests wholesome or unwholesome self-organizations.  Understanding the function of these mind conditioners conceptually creates the conditions that support direct identification of them as impersonal while practicing mindfulness of breathing meditation, and this insight reveals the non-self characteristic of human personality.

Here are the notes prepared for this talk:  Reviewing The Universal Mind Conditioners

Here is the document that shows all 52 of the cetasikas:  CETASIKAS POSTER

The focus for the next talk will be what are called the Particular or Occasional Cetasikas.
