This talk provides support for identifying the characteristics of the 5 Hindrances and using mindfulness of breathing meditation practice to disregard the craving and clinging associated with their presence. Setting aside the hindrances is necessary in order to support insights into the conditioned nature of the mind. Three qualities of attention are described to support this process: atapi, sati sampajjana–diligent, mindful, clear comprehension– of what is emerging into awareness in order to be able to effectively set the hindrances aside.
Here are the notes prepared for this talk: 2021 Setting Aside The Five Hindrances
