| Sasanarakkha Buddhist Sanctuary Retreat 2013 - Guided Meditation 16.6.13

Cittanupassana and Dhammanupassana practice are very close. Rupa also dhamma, nama also dhamma. Because of dhamma, we can see that it’s impersonal. There is nobody there. Another way of saying is: dhamma is right, adhamma is wrong. Dhamma and adhamma: right and wrong or wholesome and unwholesome.

We are cultivating wholesome qualities of mind, it is dhamma. If we practice with defilements, this we call adhamma. When nature is happening, we call it dhamma. If personal effort is too much to control the experience, this is not dhamma. It is adhamma. We try to change, we try to control nature, it is adhamma.

Because of defilement, we are judging, we are controlling. If defilement motivates, it is adhamma. If wholesome mind motivates, it is called dhamma.

But actually defilement is also nature. When we think that defilement is also nature –that is dhamma. Wholesome mind and unwholesome mind are both dhammakusala dhamma and akusala dhamma.

Kusala is also dhamma. Akusala is also dhamma. That time dhamma becomes nature.

[Yogi's note: Dhammanupassana – when wholesome and unwholesome minds become nature/impersonal]
