This post reviews the Six Sense Bases: the eyes and seeing, the ears and hearing, the nose and smelling, the tongue and tasting, the sensations elsewhere in the body, along with the mind and consciousness. During the talk, Peter Carlson focuses on the fetters, those manifestations of craving and clinging that the mind fabricates into the misconception that there is an enduring and autonomous self. Investigation of and detachment from the fetters fosters the process of Awakening.
