Greetings Piotr & Dmytro,

Thanks for your posts... it's something to sati.

Metta,

So... how does this argument about sati as remembrance and sati as mindfulness make any difference to my meditation practise? What should I be doing instead? Should I throw away everything I have learned and start again?
Dmytro, can you please post a link to some description of what proper practise is, or proper meditation practise should be? Not a sutta please, something in plain English written for those with the meanest of understandings. Thanks!
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

Thank-you for this thread.

It just struck me that putting things down in order to practice "bare awareness", is what happens when I'm on the cushion.
And discerning attention/recollection/mindfulness, is something I largely fail to practice when I am NOT on the cushion.

:smile: Thank-you.

The attached PDF is scanned from Ven Analayo's book. It addresses the question of sati and "bare attention/choiceless awareness." (The first page in this scan should actually be the last.) The text to read starts with the second page starting with: III.2 SATI to page 49 and picks up again with page 57 running through to the top three line of page 61 (the first page).
