| Czech Retreat 2013 Introduction Talk

In Satipattana Sutta, they explain about the 4 objects – kaya, vedana, citta and dhamma. If you watch the body sensations only, we call kayanupassana. If you only watch the feeling – pleasant, unpleasant and neutral – we call vedananupassana. If you watch the mind only, good mind, bad mind, any mind, we try to watch all the time to learn about the mind, we call cittanupassana. If you understand that these 3 kinds of objects are impersonal (there is nobody there), nature; and we watch the relationship of this nature, we call dhammanupassana.
