Sampajañña

Postby alan... » Mon Jan 21, 2013 5:55 pm

what exactly does this word mean? i've seen "clear comprehension" and "full awareness" in translations of satipatthana sutta. typically defined as multiple types of conscious awareness of ones actions in regard to suitability and other connections to the dhamma.

Hi Alan and all,

Thinking of sabhāva by Lakkhaṇādicatukka, Thinking of relationship of cause and result by paccaya-paccayuppanna, and Thinking of sabhāva by tilakkhaṇa.

Above 1st and 2st are ñātapariññā-sampajañña, and 3rd is tīranapariññā-sampajañña.

"Thinking of many real things (Lakkhaṇādicatukka, paccaya-paccayuppanna, and tilakkhaṇa) about that that sabhāva."

I summary above phase from patisambhidhāmagga, commentary and there's sub.

Sampajanna is one of the synonyms of panna, wisdom.

Can one say there are degrees of sampajañña? That is, can some clear comprehension be 'deeper' or 'greater'? Or can someone clearly comprehend 'more' than another? Obviously there is 'more' in the sense of clearly comprehending more often-- but I mean to ask if there is a greater or lesser degree of clear comprehension at any given moment, or if it's a simple 'off' or 'on' thing?

Dear Daniel
the five faculties (indriya) are saddha, viriya, sati-, samadhi, panna.
At a moment of genuine satipatthana each of these factors is present to some degree, and when they become very strong they are called bala (powers).
Also it should be known that these factors are all part of the eightfold path and indeed until nibbana is contacted the path is really a five-fold path (or sometimes 6) always including all of these indriya.
Panna(called rightview when talking about the path) is the leader.

Thanks RobertK.
According to Reverend Tejaniya, awareness (wich he often but not always uses interchangeably with sati) is what we do when the five faculties are all working together. Does this conflict your (Abhidhamma) perspective?

On a related note, what do you (and the Abhidhamma) think "genuine satipatthana" is how does it comes about?

If this can be of any help:

I would agree with tilt's description. Sampajanna in my understanding covers the meditator's experience while considering the reality with appropriate attention (yoniso manasikara), that meanschiefly discerning the three lakkhanas (anicca, dukkha, anatta) in whatever one experiences at whatever degree of coarseness or refinement according to one's mind's ability.
